It appears the Joe administration is breaking federal law...sigh! 😢
They like breaking stuff like the constitution, and everything else they touch.

And Delta thinks it's #GREEDYCAPITOLISTPRICEGOUGERS" that done it like Lyin' Biden says. RollEyes

$4.12 0ff I-4 in Polk County yesterday.

It went up to $4.49 her in Orlando in like two days. Funny thing is that Bocca Raton has a $.75 gasoline tax and the prices there yesterday were only $4.49 too. Maybe they suspended their gas tax?

Florida gas averages climb to new record

Orlando Sentinel

The price at the pump this week in Florida may cause some drivers to fume.

Florida hit a new record this week regarding the average price of regular unleaded gasoline, which now costs $4.40, according to the AAA Auto Club. That’s 3 cents more than the previous record set in March. Prices in Orlando are helping to push the average up, with the cost hovering at about $4.42. The Orlando average jumped up 12 cents between Wednesday and Thursday, according to AAA.

Florida’s costliest gas remains in Monroe County and the cheapest is on the Panhandle.

Orlando is keeping up with the national average, which is currently resting, at the time of this report, at $4.42. Leading the nation in costliest fuel prices is California at about $5.85.

The rise is due to the high cost of crude oil, which was near $100 a barrel last week and closed Wednesday around $110.
“With the cost of oil accounting for more than half of the pump price, more expensive oil means more expensive gasoline,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “These prices are creeping closer to those record-high levels of early March.”

Exacerbating the cost further is a decreased amount of gasoline stocks and an increased amount of demand for it, AAA said.

The high price of oil is largely because many buyers are refusing to purchase Russian oil due to its invasion of Ukraine, according to the Associated Press. The European Union is considering an embargo on oil from Russia, which is a major supplier, the AP reported. Those pressures leave less oil to go around.

Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil remains above $105 per barrel, according to AAA.

As the war Russia is waging on Ukraine continues and gasoline demand continues to grow, experts are not expecting relief at the pump soon, the AP reported.

Associated Press contributed to this report.

Joe Stranosa says he didn't do that, you see it's everybody else's doing,.and there's nothing he can do to bring prices down on the gas, food, and everything else because it's everybody else's fault.
Got that?

$5.55 for reg, Chevron, southern Oregon coast.
Other stations .05 to .10 per gal less.

Keep waiting for it to come down, but.....

What is sad is me sitting here hoping it somehow comes back “down” to $3.50/gal.
Strange times.............just hope we somehow return to some semblance of normalcy. But not sure we are capable of such

It's like that old timey flagellation thingy, it's the price you must pay to atone for your carbon sins against Gaia,
but it'll be your salvation on the 'Incredible Transition' from Fossil Fuels. So says Joe Stranosa. Amen.

This one makes no sense: I paid $5.99 for regular at Costco in Phoenix and then drove to Prescott which is a small town 90 miles away and the price there is $5.57 per gallon.

Gas, oil, LP, etc and energy prices are not set by what they have sitting in the tanks at your gas pump. It's strongly influenced on what they expect to pay in the future. Also taxes are a huge portion f the $ amount that you pay

Then add in seasonal requirements that force refineries to make different flavors for summer blend and winter blend stuff.

Dallas area - $5.26 for premium.

But on the lighter side, only 12 cents per kWh.
So 350 miles is about 9 bucks.

15 minutes to add 175 miles. But they clip you like 18 bucks……

After 175 miles I need a break anyhow.
Besides we would be taking the wife’s suv for a long trip (v6).

Went by a couple gas stations today, almost broke the $5 barrier. $4.98 for cheap stuff.

E-bike is still sort of "free" (I don't notice any electrical bill increases from plugging in my bike). As I understand it the local city buses are currently free - they are replacing the bus fare meter thingies in all the buses so it's free until the new ones are installed.

Oil companies are reporting record profits for the first quarter (2022).

I would bet a serious discussion of nationalizing oil production would slow down and/or reverse price increases.

That statement would make a lot of environmentalists happier than an otter eating a clam while swimming on his back. And without doing it in an oil slick.

Of course they are have you seen the prices? Additionally, production costs are the same as several years ago. Oil companies just reap the rewards (or suffer the fate) of a speculative market.

You know they don't set the actual pricing for crude, etc... right?
