ReTired1stTimer

Here in north central florida, we had 2 separate upward spikes totaling close to 35 cents a gallon for regular grade. the local Circle-K 1/2 mile from our house is now 2.42 gallon. the closest Walmart, about 4 miles away was 2.43 yesterday, Saturday, 3-2-19. how the heck can they increase it like that at intervals so much? they are still making millions at the lower prices, just sucks they being greedy. the rich get richer and the lower to middle class Joe's like us have to be the ones to suffer. still, it is lower than 2-3 years ago, and glad I don't smoke, never have, never will. this means the two trips we will be going on will cost more than we expected this summer, but hey, you wanna play, expect to pay. anyway, we'll figger it out. glad to be here. this forum is ..AWESOME. learn so much from you all everyday I log on here. thanks again and enjoy your days ahead.

I'm outside of Lancaster, and gas is ridiculous here. Thankfully I travel to NJ or MD several time a week and can fill up there..

I live in southern Maryland and chose to use BJs, with $0.10 discount using their Master Card or SAMS which both are cheaper than WAWAs and sometimes when in VA south of the Metro DC area even cheaper than MD.

Fuel prices go up, then go down. It's been a rollercoaster for decades.

We really don't pay too much attention to it. The price has to go up substantially for an extended period before it affects most folks bottom line and they have to change their spending habits.

But, it doesn't stop us from complaining about it. It is frustrating to be at the mercy of politics and big corporations.

If fuel prices are at the ridiculous stage, we still travel with the RV, but tend to stay longer at destinations.

Regular: $2.61 avg.

Diesel: $2.95 avg.

We've seen it lower. We've also seen it higher. We don't complain too much as we have no State Income Tax or Sales Tax. Our state fuel taxes are still the lowest in the nation, so we hold our tongues. Besides, our roads take a beating from our winters.

Scam

Here in Ohio gas prices are a scam, prices jump every week .30-40 cents and back down to where it was when it went up. Now our Gov to pay for $1B in road shortage repair money has decided tat the current .28 cents per gallon state tax is not enough. He wants to increase tax another .18 cents. Money we will never see again. Only is we could make sure these crooks in gov. used the money they say it is for.

I figured out my wifes and my yearly gallon consumption and this .18 cent increase will cost us $214 a year. That brings us up to around $500 a year just in gas sales tax. I look at how many cars are on interstate 70/75 and wonder how much the state is really going to take in.....

$1B shortfall over the next couple years totaled. I know someone is going to say you should live in California and complain. Before it is said. THAT IS WHY I don't live in that state.

Saw on the news the other morning... the Governor of Michigan wants to increase the fuel tax to $.70/gal? A news crew was interviewing this old boy at a gas station about it, his reply was "It's pure Michigan".

To be honest, I made sure I retired with enough money that a few hundred extra dollars a year won't make a difference to me. I don't sweat gas prices at all. In fact, higher the gas price, less people on the road.

LOL I know what you mean! When Kartina drove up prices, it was almost 4 bucks a gallon here in SC...I was loving it, the town I live in was looking like 1978 again on the roads! I loved it! I have always had two vehicles, one a gas sipping beat up Corolla and when I drag the Camper a 2500 Diesel.
Im no fool and my ego is small enough that I dont need to be "seen" in a big truck each and every day.

Hey if I was the oil company I would be socking it to folks too, after all we have seen high prices in the past and as soon as the gas drops folks run right out there and get another Chevy "Subdivision" , so I find it humorous when folks complain about gas prices, when essentially they deserve just that, high gas prices

Gas around here has gone up 12-15 cents/gallon in the last 3 weeks.

The last time I checked, the US uses around 392 million gallons of gas per day. If the price goes up 1 cent/gallon, the industry makes an additional $392,000 each day. Times that by 15 cents and the industry is raking in an additional $5.88 million per day. And they can (and do, I think) do it on a whim. Doesn't take long for them to pay for their big bonuses or those lobbyists in DC.
