Gas Prices

Discussion in 'Lounge' started by saxegotha, Oct 11, 2008.

  1. We've had a considerable drop in fuel here in the Panhandle.

    At the Hugo Chavez Citgo gas stations, as of last night, here's what we pay:

    87 Octane: 3.07
    89 Octane: 3.17
    93 Octane: 3.27

    At Exxon, BP, Shell and others, the price is only two cents higher.

    With such low, low prices, I was able to fill a half-empty 96 Pontiac Formula at Shell with 93 octane for 24 bucks.

    I felt so great at having some money left over, I decided to stimulate the economy with a 5 dollar car wash.

    $2.94 in St. Louis metro. Better keep trending down too. Jerks. I bet everyone who rushed to buy a Dodge during their $2.99 gas guarantee racket are sweatin.

    Glad to see they are dropping when I left prices were still upper 3 dollar range. I admit it has been nice not having to put gas in my car at all as I haven't driven in a whole month now.

    My friend's wife is a finance manager for Chrysler and she said that was the biggest incentive failure in the history of automotive sales.
    It was either $2.99 gas or 0.99% financing, and very few people took the gas (or even bought a Dodge for that matter). It goes to show you that the people of America are really not that stupid....nah!

    The cheapest gas in my area yesterday was $2.89.9 for regular, but it's been falling fast for the last few days. Hopefully it will keep falling because I know where I can get a great deal on a slightly-used Hummer.;)

    Yep, I would guess that within a week SUV sales should pick up again.

    The only thing about this whole thing is that the gas is coming down now when a lot of the guys up north here are thinking about putting their car away for the winter. I am glad I don't have to worry about storage :). Because as long as the roads are nice I can still take advantage of the cheaper prices and take the ol ranchero out for a cruise :).

    You guys are lucky. 29 stations in a 10 mile radius of me range from $3.36 to $3.50 for 87 octane and up to $3.90 for 91. On top of that we get up to 13% ethanol.:( My 11:0 to 1 Cleveland don't like that.
     
  13. Price dipped again. 2.99/3.09/3.19 up here. So down in Ft Walton, probably 2.94/3.04/3.19. Monday should look pretty good too.

    We are still high here $3.26 last night, and about $.10 of that is local taxes going to the local bus system that no one rides.

    I filled up the van at $2.97 yesterday, they're still falling too. Ol' Pud's gonna cost me around $22 to fill up next time, whenever that is.

    BTW, last time I filled up the van at $3.89 or something, it cost $15 more to fill it. That's a case of beer, y'all.
