Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

The 80's? It was at or under a buck in the late 90's.
You'd think this would spurn some public transit projects but it doesn't seem to have done a lot.

$1.00 in the 1980s is the same as $2.82 today, apparently.

That's because public transportation sucks and no one wants to use it.

Not to mention that it's an all or nothing deal when it comes to enough routes and timeliness. Having lived in Europe where it's a way of life, you can get anywhere, pretty quickly, very cost effectively. When I just entertained the idea here in KC, I found the assholes running the place wouldn't even bother to help me figure out the best way from Lee's Summit and back each day. Fail! Then, when I figured it out myself, I'd have to have a clock-punching 9-5 job for it to be effective. Well, no!

So, they need to quit looking at public transportation as a charity ride for certain cross-sections of KC, and just get it in everywhere. Slow growth just won't work.

And last, having little from the airport to the market/downtown/Crown/Plaza are killing the area for many conferences. Try those on for size first, and not buses.....real light-rail cars like DC has.

Short of that, **** them, I'll drive and have my corporate conferences elsewhere.

Refinery Issues, Summer Blend Send Gas Prices Soaring

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/06/...rices-soaring/

CHICAGO (CBS) – Chicago area gas prices jumped 25 cents at some stations in one day this week, thanks to a double-whammy of refinery problems and the switchover to summer blend gasoline.

WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports, with a gallon of regular unleaded now going for an average of $4.70 per gallon, Chicago’s gas prices are even higher than Hawaii’s.

Gas Buddy analyst Patrick DeHaan said BP and ExxonMobil have said maintenance being completed at Whiting and Joliet has restricted local gas supplies, just as refineries switch to the more expensive summer blends, and driving demand picks up for the holiday season.

“Unfortunately, it may get worse before it gets better, but in the next two weeks or so, we should see some relief, starting that is, in the next two weeks,” he said.

DeHaan said several stations raised their prices by a full quarter per gallon between opening and closing on Wednesday.

Daniel Vargas fills his vintage Camaro with premium. That grade carries a premium price, even in northwest Indiana, where gas is normally cheaper.

A gallon of premium was going for $4.89 at one Merrillville, Ind. gas staion.

“Northwest Indiana is not the place to get cheap gas. In fact, there’s no cheap gas and there hasn’t been for quite some time,” DeHaan says. “Tighter gasoline supply combined with these refinery outages creates a very tight situation for supply. And what happens? Econ 101 says prices go way up.”
