It's sad, because the price continues to drop on the international market, the Per barrel price is very close to 100 now and still falling.  It's too bad that the greed that this is a part of couldn't be curtailed in some way, the pump price has always been tied to the market price of crude, this is completely against that principle and purely motivated by greed and the urge to take advantage of the people that are being hit by Ike.  This is gouging in the most horrendous way ( I put that word in for slow rider, he likes when I use a big word now and then, even if I don't know what it means).lol

Gas prices today up here in Minneapolis are still pretty stable.  Good thing I just filled my TDI Golf yesterday and won't need to fill again until maybe Oct 1st.

I'm hoping damage from the hurricane is minimal since I'm doing 4,000 miles in my bus in 10 days.  Maybe the $5 a gallon we were planning for earlier this summer will come true.  (Hope not!)

There will be episodes and incidents that will keep fuel on peoples minds but the gas price will drop until the Nov elections are over.  Tongue Then it will skyrocket till people scream and then it will drop back to just a little higher than it started and most will breath a collective sigh and forget about it.  Huh

My prediction,

John

All the media has to do is say BOO! concerning gas price/ availability & everyone runs out to fill their tanks with gas. The sudden rise in demand causes local outages. Then neighboring areas get spooked & the panic spreads.

After Katrina, the media was reporting the pipelines were flowing at only 60% of capacity, fueling continued panic & stress. What they didn't report was that 60% was normal capacity & production was back to normal.

Sure, there will be limited production as a result of the storm, but we could weather this easier if we didn't panic & rush out to 'get it before someone else does'.

Just my thoughts . . . .

What is supposed to have caused it? The prices in Spartanburg seem to be steady.

I am confused. Why is gas supposed to jump about $1.00 in one day?  That in itself would be a record jump.  What is happening tomorrow to make it go that high? A hurricane will not make it jump that much at one time.

It's just good old fashioned price gouging.

I don't know that it changed - it was $3.33 in Greenville this afternoon? Might be some local rip offs?

What Cliff said +

Supply & demand.

People lining up to get it.

If we ALL said "no thanks, I'll walk (or take vacation or time off w/o pay or whatever)" Then the prices wouldn't go or stay that high.

When enough charge more & we still buy it, the rest raise their price so they aren't left out.

It was $3.619 this afternoon on my drive home from Spartanburg to Greer & Nancy said the prices from Greenville to greer weren't much different either.
