BALL's thread about gas pricess got me thinking... what are the prices in yalls area? The US national average is $2.39... but a year ago it was only $1.86!

Regardless of whether it's diesel, Regular or Supreme what are YOU paying per gallon? Kind of curious to see what this gear head group is shelling out.

BTW... "A forecast from the Energy Information Administration projects that retail gasoline prices will continue to average above $2.10 per gallon on a monthly basis through 2006. Diesel is expected to average above $2.20 every month between now and the end of 2006, according to the EIA.

Should crude oil prices drop below our forecast over the next 16 months or so, we could see retail gasoline and diesel prices drop below $2 per gallon, but absent such a dramatic drop, it does appear that retail gasoline and diesel prices will remain above $2 per gallon for the foreseeable future."

Re: GAS PRICES: What are you paying? (Tripod-R)

As of right now or when I go home this evening
this morning at the truck stop it was $2.459 regular, thank goodness the V-Strom runs on regular


If it holds true like the last couple of days it'll increase 5 cents by this evening.

Re: GAS PRICES: What are you paying? (BALLS)

In north Florida regular is 2.64, Mid. is 2.75, and Prem. is 2.86 a gallon and Diesel is 2.68. The funny part is 24% is Govt. Tax, 11% is state tax, and 7% is local tax

Re: GAS PRICES: What are you paying? (superduc21)

It jumped from $2.59 to $2.75 for regular here yesterday. If the price of oil goes up and then the price of gasoline goes up, I can understand that, but why are all the oil companies setting record profits?
Why doesn't the Fed step in and do something?
We are all just pawns to these mother phuckers. I hate them all.

Re: GAS PRICES: What are you paying? (superduc21)

You sure it's not 24 cents, 11 cents and 7 cents?

And I guess you were OK with having roads to ride on, just not OK with paying for them?

I'm fortunate enough that my company moved 4 miles down the road from home this year. I used to drive 28 miles a day. I haven't pumped gas in two weeks..... I'm actually contemplating riding the Duc to work everyday instead of the car, that way, I probably won't have to refill for a month....

It's % and the gov. gets the majority of it. The state and local isnt the prob. I didn't think federal grants pay for local roads. It is usually the counties. My question is why is diesel so high when it is just a by-product that is left over when they make gas? They have a "new" diesel that is made from used cooking oil that is maybe half the price of regular diesel but the fed will not let them mass distribute it. Gas prices are nothing but a monopoly.

Re: (superbike2001)

Almost $3 a gallon for super where I live in the state of the double tax. I'm thinking the state govmint is loving all the extra sales tax it is collecting. Diesel is $3.20 or so a gallon. Just in time for everybody that took advantage of employee discount pricing and bought a new monster viagra truck. I'm seriously considering getting the registration current on my old CL100 pit bike and riding it to work. 80-90 mpg.

Re: (jbraslins)

Hey you haven't got it that bad. Where I'm at it's about $1.02 a litre (Cdn $). That works out to about 3.37 US per US Gallon.

In Canadian terms it's $4.63 CDN per imperial gallon
...almost time to buy the electric bicycle.

Re: (patman)

Yup. Diesel aint the cheapest fuel out there, but the gas mileage defiitely makes up for it. The first few months I owned my Duramax in the middle of 2003, diesel was at a whopping $1.58 a gallon back then.

Those were da days...

Re: (Tripod-R)

I did have to laugh at a humans perspective. Here I was a week ago feeling like I was getting a deal at $2.45 a gallon while filling my truck because all the other stations had gone to $2.59. If someone asked me if I would pay $2.45 a gallon a couple years ago I would have told them I'll walk first.

The economy is booming! Consumption is up. Diesel consumption is up 6% over last year. With the economic growth in this US economy companies are producing more and more products, and those products need to be shipped from coast to coast. We have limited gasoline refining capacity in this country, about half of what we had 20 years ago. Demand is up. Consumption in India and China is up.

Wouldn't you expect profit to go up as sales increase? More sales, more profit. Makes perfect sense. Don't confuse profit with profit margin. Oil companies are careful to hold the line on margin in a market like this because they don't want to be accused of price gouging. What we're seeing is Capitalism at work. Refiners will build more cracking plants as the demand rises and the investment can be paid off in a reasonable period. That is if government regulations allow the construction of new refineries...

Oil is nowhere near "Record" prices. Oil will have to go over $90 a barrel, and gas will have to go over $3 a gallon to break the "record" of the Jimmy Carter 1980's.

You want the government to step-in and do something? That's called Socialism. No thanks. If you're mad, write your elected officials and demand business-friendly regulations on the refining industry.

Re: (Phil 998)

I hear ya Phil. My wife and I went to visit my sister in California roughly 2.5 years ago. Supreme was $2.25 a gallon and I had to pick my jaw up off the ground.

Of course now, when I leave work today, I'm going to have to fill up at $2.28/gallon for diesel.



Nothing is as bad as VP Ultimate4 though. Makes Supreme look like a BARGAIN!

Jeff, ya lucky bastard, I have to go fill up @ 2.59/ga when I get off work.

I may just have to get off my "track only" high and put the 600 back on the street....
