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

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...d=afOlUzd30YOo

Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Spoiler!

Thanks Mr. Donger. You're a fount of information.

I assumed that the flood/refinery problem in KS was a contributing factor. But, we're talking about a difference of almost 50 cents per gallon. I have to believe there is some bullcrap associated with that.

You mean $0.30? That's not unusual.

I misspoke in my first post. My apologies, Mr. Donger The Precise. I was working on the Long Hauler's School of Art project and got distracted. The price of gas here in Nashville when we filled up was $2.87. The price of gas in KS was, as I said, $3.26/7 in some places. So, let me see ... 3.27 minus 2.87 ... carry the 1 ... okay ... .40 was the difference, you're right.

But, given the refinery issue in KS, that still seems like a lot, don't you think?

Heh, I read that Tucson has the lowest priced gasoline in the nation at something like $2.83/gallon.

I am on E right now, so the next place I go is the gas station, so we'll see for sure.

We are responsible for the oil prices because we create the demand. Americans will never learn till we have european prices and higher taxes on gas guzzlers.

No, it isn't. That Coffeyville refinery is one of the primary suppliers of gasoline in Kansas, IIRC. I'm actually surprised it isn't higher.

Agreed. Americans have an obession with things that go fast and guzzle gasoline. It will probably never change.....

For the record, gasoline demand in the US remains strong. Right around 9.5 million barrels per day.

So, just to be clear. The reason the gas is more expensive in KS is that the refinery got hosed so they have to bring gas in from other places. But 20 minutes away on the Missouri side, it's 20 cents cheaper?

For years, California has been paying more at the pump, compared to everywhere else in the US.

Now the midwest is higher than any other state's gas.

Not only that, but, don't they produce heating oil in the summer months and gasoline in winter months?

So if they were producing heating oil, why is the price of fuel, that has already been refined, now costing us more when it didn't cost them more?

Yes. Kansas gas tax is $0.07 higher than Missouri. Add in the refinery being underwater...
