Angry Gas Prices Keep Soaring

Gasoline Prices Near Record Levels

The Daily Auto Insider
Wednesday, March 3, 2004
March 2004


The national average price of unleaded gasoline rose to $1.72 for a gallon, up nearly three cents from a week before, and just shy of the record $1.75 per gallon recorded last August and moving toward record levels, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing higher crude-oil prices, strong demand and reduced refinery capacity because of converting production to summer-month blends and routine maintenance.

Some regions are already facing or are nearing those record high prices. The Energy Information Administration reported the average price of a gallon of unleaded regular was $2.11 in California and $1.83 in New York.

The WSJ also reported that gasoline-market observers say gas prices are likely to continue to rise through May. "We certainly have the potential for [a national average of] $1.90 to $2 a gallon prices in the late spring, early summer period, assuming oil prices stay where they are," says George J. Gaspar, an oil analyst with investment firm Robert W. Baird & Co. in Milwaukee.
Yikes this is getting really bad.

Your thoughts.

You know I was going to make a thread about the gas prices. There fuckin rediculus. I don't really know how much a gallon is to a liter, so its hard for me to compare prices from Canada to the U.S. But some gas stations over here had their gas at 83 cents today, and its only going to go up the closer the weekend comes. The cheapest it went down this week was 74 cents. And that was for like a day and a half.

It's starting to rise where I am too, there's this gas station around my area and everyday that I drove passed it, the price kept on rising .2 cents a day, in 2 weeks it went from $1.90 to $2.10 and thats in two weeks. I don't know why it's rising, I thought the price only rises in winter and drops in the summer

Yeah, gas prices around here fluctuate so much, one day they'll be 0.65/L then the next day they'll be up at 0.80/L.

I remember back in the day when gas would dip into the 0.50/L range, but those days were over a long time ago.

Nowadays it's uncommon to see something less than $0.70/L

Yeah I've seen gas stations no more than 100 meters apart with huge differences in prices.

Last week I while I was stopped at an intersection on one side I saw a gas station with 0.75/L and the one right across was 0.65/L.

The damn gas prices around here jump 20 cents on every weekend, the current price is $1.84 per gallon. It pisses me off to no end, but I have to have a car to get me to and from work, and until I can afford an alternative they have me by the proverbial short hairs.
