What are gas prices where you are? South side,.....UP .15 just this afternoon

?? I wonder if it is just this one station or is it happening all over Toledo? 2.44 at lunchtime and 4:00 it was 2.59

Remember a few weeks ago, when it was briefly under 2 bucks? That was because they were worried about the dems doing something about this farce once they took power. Once it became apparent that they weren't going to do anything (too busy with other , more important things, like picking up where they left off in the 90's with persecuting smokers), the prices started to creep up again. It's one of the only commodities where the free market system doesn't work, because no one can go somewhere else and get a cheaper form of gas to run their autos at this point intime, nor can they afford a hybrid. It's therefore a captive market driven primarily by greedy arabs and greedy wall street speculators.

Please, it wasn't because of the Dems possibly getting in office (other people said it was the Republicans trying to buy the American voter into voting for them too!). Those are all populist (and ignorant) conclusions made because it gives people someone to blame. If you know how to go and take the oil from the Middle East, Venezuela, and Russia without putting it on a commodities trading floor, then please step up and run for office. But Saudi Arabia and Mr. Chavez would probably laugh in your face if you proposed to them setting prices at $30 a barrel when they can get $60 a barrel today.

In reality, the reason gas prices have gone up is because of crude oil prices rising again. Back when prices were under $1.80-2.00/gallon the price for a barrel of crude was $48. Now the price for crude has bumped up to $61 or so. If you want to blame someone then blame OPEC. They authorized a cut in production a couple months back and those cuts are now making their way through the system. You might also blame the abnormally cold weather as that increased oil-product demand in the US.

We're going to have to learn to deal with high gas prices until we change fundamental problems in our energy policy. We can:

1. Increase supply of oil either domestically (ANWR, the Gulf of Mexico, and Great Lakes) or internationally.
2. Decrease our consumption of gas. Hybrids and ethanol, unfortunately, aren't going to do it either. It will take making hydrogen energy economical (that's a long way off).

In the short-term number 1 is the answer. In the long-term number 2 is the answer. We have the ability to the ability of changing gas prices, but is it worth drilling in ANWR and the Great Lakes and expanding drilling the Gulf to do so? That's the question we have to ask ourselves.

neighborhood or not? Spare me the thirty thousand foot view - you can see from my recent postings that this is driving me nuts :-)

If you're here to tell me it's my fault - you're right. I meant to do it. It was alot of fun. That's why I have this happy smile on my face.

So it is in the general Toledo area. I had an email earlier today of 2.65 a gallon over the river. Actually right next to the oil facility. Ironic, ain't it.

thank you for posting! Also, if we do use this thing it'll encourage those stations who are trying to hold the cost down...and we want to do that!

Kate, just after midnight on my way home last night it was $2.36. This morning at 9:45 it was $2.59. A couple of other stations were still around $2.39 at that time, but everyone was up to $2.59 by the time I headed into work.

I've found that Speedway on Jackman/Sylvania/Tremainsville is almost always the first one to go up, but they're usually the first to drop as well.

But I wasn't talking about BEFORE the election-I was talking about AFTER it. And there's always an excuse, funny how it's a different one every time. I only agree with your one observation-our 'friends' the greedy arabs, who obviously appreciate the human sacrifice in the war.

around $2.54 here along Reynolds, Kate. 8^D
