How much of that is tax compared to the fuel taxes here in the USA?

    Paid $3.41 at VA/NC border yesterday; it was about 10 cents more central VA (northern VA is crazy - 40-50 cents more).   But I don't buy fuel in No Virginia.

The last time I was at the Flyin’ Hooker, I filled up with a 1/2 tank and it came to well over $350.00.  While I was refueling this guy in a sticks n staples motorhome says to me, “Nice bus.  What year is it?” and I told him the make/age/and particulars. 

Then he says, “What are you doing?” (because I am on the drivers side and the bus is fueling on the opposite side)  And I say, “Well, I am toppin’ it off.”

So then he says, “How come you are on this side, shouldn’t you be on the other side?”

I just smiled and replied, “Who the @##@#@#*! wants to look at that?”

It is interesting, I read an article yesterday about how China has dropped their oil importation by at noticeable percentage and how they think it will cause a glut on the market.  Today I read about how much gas is going up because of demand for oil.  Someone is lying!

Regardless of any glut from lack of Chinese demand, oil prices have gone up in recent days due to the Egypt situation and are causing gas prices to go up.  We were paying around $3.25 earlier in the week and I saw as high as $3.59 today.  I paid $3.36 at Sam's Club today.

Gasoline and oil demand have been going down in the USA due to the economy and people buying vehicles with better MPG.  I have a 2012 Grand Caravan that gets at minimum 5 MPG better than the 2000 version of the Grand Caravan and I have a slightly bigger engine to boot.

Within the next year all the "*%holes speculators that have been duped by big oil into driving oil prices into the biggest bubble since housing are gonna get caught when oil corrects itself and drops to $30-$50 then guess who will come running to the American taxpayer for help? All the big Wall street firms that created the bubble in their sociopathic greed. Remember these words.... "TOO BIG TO FAIL".    

Sound familiar???

P.S.  It wouldn't bother me a bit if all the folks that live outside of the states would quit telling us all how "easy" we have it. We buy more oil in an afternoon then most countries buy in a month and some of us think socialism and government taxing the hell out of us is not the answer. I've yet to hear a person on the board from the states compare the US to Canada or England. Too apples to oranges for me.

we're not spoiled...we're just trying to make sure you have a place to average out or beat the price of fuel at your home... Grin

Whenever diesel drops to $4 here (which is not very often) I say three Hail Mary's and top up the bus.   It's too bad I'm not closer to Tijuana, otherwise Pemex would be getting more of my money.

I feel bad for the Canadians,  they come south and buy THEIR oil for less than they can buy it at home for!
