Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

yep. I do. I've seen price quotes an hour old be wrong.

Shouldn't that word be "posted?"

I had to drive quite a ways to find 4.15 gas last Saturday, most of it was 4.39 around here.

Midwestern states skew national gas price average
By Mark Huffman
ConsumerAffairs.com

Gasoline prices are headed up again, but maybe not as much as the statistics seem to suggest. Surging pump prices in five Midwestern states may be distorting the picture.

Last week motorists in Illinois and Indiana were shocked as gas prices jumped more than 40 cents a gallon almost overnight. There were similar price surges in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.

While consumers fumed, industry analysts explained a pipeline rupture and equipment problems at three regional refineries were mostly responsible for the hike. While gas prices were rising in most states, the increases were nothing like these five states experienced.

On Sunday the average price of self-service regular was $4.05 a gallon in Illinois. That makes Illinois gasoline the second most expensive in the nation, behind Hawaii.

The price increase in these five Midwestern states has pushed the national average price of gas higher than it might have been otherwise. The AAA Fuel Gauge Survey puts the national average price at $3.61 a gallon. That's up 12.5 cents a gallon in the last week.

Prices rising just about everywhere

While the affected Midwestern states have seen prices at the pump rise at an abnormally rapid rate, prices elsewhere are rising, just at a more moderate pace. States like South Carolina and Mississippi, where prices are lowest, have seen price hikes in the last week of about 13 cents a gallon.

But in expensive states like Oregon, the price hikes have been even slower. The state-wide average price in Oregon is up three cents in the last seven days. The average price in North Dakota hasn't budged in the last week.

Analysts say prices in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin and Michigan should fall just as quickly as they went up. When, however, remains less certain. Prices generally begin going down after Labor Day.

I thought that pipelines never ruptured. And since they don't lets put one right in the middle of our drinking supply.

He wasn't trolling - he was just being himself. When he started getting his shit pushed in he changed his tune.

Are you channeling Frankie or something? I knew that you'd have an emotional response, so I provoked it. There really isn't any need to get all bent out of shape over it. I was just having fun.

Crude is up to $95.00 today, BTW.

Believe it or not, I found Gas this morning in Crosby Tx, right outside of Houston, for 3.28 regular unleaded.

The rest of the area is averaging about 3.39 and Houston in general is averaging about 3.42. NEVER thought I'd think those prices were good, but I have been "conditioned" to believe they are.

You're a ****ing douche. I don't really know why you've gotten a free pass for so long, but it is what it is. For a douche, being douchy is fun. For the rest of us, though, it's just you being a douche. You're like the bitch in the Billy Joel song - she never gives in, she just changes her mind.

Seriously, **** you, you miserable prick.

I'm not sure what you mean by getting a free pass, but okay. And, no offense, but you are the one who sounds miserable. I'm actually a pretty affable chap.

If jerking off over the price of oil is happiness, yeah, I guess you're just regular bundle of joy.
