Angry Get Gas Now!!

Because of Katrina, they had to shut down the big oil refinery....gas is now going up and over $3.20 a gallon! Hubby called and said there is a line going around the block by his work to get 2.57 and they were changing the prices as he was getting gas! It's only going to go up more!

Yup, over US$70 barrel now.

We're paying around AUD$1.20 / Litre (US$3.41 / gallon) for Regular Unleaded. The southern states are paying more and I shudder to think what they're paying in the bush!!

Yaaaay for motorbikes!




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

I paid 2.69 on woodward and 10 mile sunoco. No line, nothing. That three dollar stuff is garbage. The worst part is I still did see some gas stations trying to get 2.89-2.99/ gallon. I thought price gouging is illegal.

Every year it's the same old BS, Refinery Issues and "Summer Blends". First of all, FIX THE FRIGGEN REFINERIES! I remember seeing a map of all the special blends by state a few years ago. You could probably fix this issue by finding the common denominator and just amking that formulation! It's amazing how ridiculous this is getting....We've been lucky over the years to have gas as low as we have. It'll be European pricing in no time!

It's Labor Day week-end as well so of course they are going to jack the prices up during a holiday week-end. Everyone's going up north one last time before winter comes.
