Agree warmovies. The price used to spike right before a holiday weekend. Now it spikes 2-3 wekeends before a holiday.
Plymouth, MN 4.39 gas, 3.82 diesel - use gas buddy!!!!
Also heard 2 refineries went offline in Chicago area recently. Gas should be lower as USA has huge refining capacity compared to other countries. The trucks and the trains are hauling tanks of crude out of SD all the time. I am convinced that crude oil is being sold overseas instead of taking care of the homeland. It is more profitable to sell it overseas is the only reason.

I agree altho' I have a gasser. There's nothing we can do about the price of gas or diesel except bitch, so why bother? Either pay it or go home and park it.

If it is going overseas, and I'm sure it is, it's because we don't have enough refining capacity. The last major refinery was built in the 70s and we didn't have the various gas blends by season and state. It was just leaded, unleaded and premium. Thank your neighborhood tree hugger.

My friends from Germany find it amusing that we are unhappy at $4 a gallon. They said even 20 years ago that was a good price in Bavaria.
