Gasoline at $4 Coming to a Pump Near You, Unfazed by Rising Tab

Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Spoiler!

Iowa has a state tax of $0.20 on gas.

Kansas is $0.24

Kansas has a higher tax on diesel than Iowa by a few cents, so something else is up there. I think Kansas has a few refineries that refine diesel, too.

Anyway, swings of ~$0.20 aren't unusual in metro areas. Look around on gasbuddy.com and you'll see.

I remember when the Dems got Ketchup bottles out to make fun of Reagan cutting some school lunch subsidy or something.

Now it is Tire pressure gauges.

Interesting. I didn't realize states swung so far on their respective taxes.

BTW, I was talking about the Missouri side of Kansas City.

3.99 a gal. and crude has fallen to $91/barrel. WTF? How the hell can gas rise 40-50 cents in 2 weeks while oil is falling? Paging Donger...

Because gasoline prices follow crude under normal conditions. It will drop.

And, the retail average isn't $3.99.

$3.83, which is artificially high due to Ike. It should, and will, be around $3.60.
