The discount gas stations are mostly charging $4.01 for RUG. I filled at Costco for $3.85. The lines were too long yesterday when it was $3.77. Diesel has not gone up much. $3.99 to $4.09 most places. A lot of our ARCO stations are now called USA Gasoline. Some ARCOs holding under $3.90.

I think they are trying to get Obama's attention on the Keystone Pipeline project. He is a slow learner. Or does not give a rip if gas prices are hurting the working folks.

One argument is that Keystone XL will divert crude from the Midwest to the Gulf. So my gas prices will catch up and pass yours.
But yeah, the election is over so POTUS can approve the rest of it now (the southern section was already given the okay) and not worry about losing the election.

I thought this Keystone pipeline stuff was OBE. As I understand it, the pipeline company changed the routing to satisfy aquifier concerns and Nebraska gave a thumbs up to Washington to proceed. The new pipeline will help clear out stockpiles in Oklahoma when completed, but I wouldn't count on it reducing gas prices here. The whole purpose of all of this is to reverse flow and allow oil into the gulf refineries which can then be exported. Remember, we're now talking about the US as a net energy exporter shortly. All this will really accomplish is making WTI oil similar in pricing to Brent crude.
I'd like to be able to fly a thermal sight over some of these refinery storage tanks. How much you want to bet they are pretty full right now? No, there couldn't be any possible manipulation going on???
#697 of 960 $4.00/gal is back...

around these parts, at least if you want premium. My Ram takes 89, which is usually priced closer to Premium anyway, so I'll try not to let it get below half a tank, and alternate between 87 and 93 when I fill up.
Today was 87 day, so it was "only" $3.599 per gallon. I didn't notice if 93 was over $4/gal at this station, but I have seen it at others.

Filled the Sequoia first time since October. Costco fill price in 10/17/12 $4.39, price at Costco today $3.93. It spends most of the time in the garage with the old LS400.
#699 of 960 Prices High and Climbing

"SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Gasoline prices at the pump have climbed every day for the past 21 days — and they’re not going to let up anytime soon.
On Thursday, the average U.S. price for a gallon of regular gasoline stood at $3.555, making it the most expensive average ever for that day and the highest level since Oct. 26 of last year, according to AAA...."

Do you put Stabil in the tank? I've heard the ethanol goes bad in about 6 weeks.
That could ruin your day...

I don't even watch it anymore. Nothing I can do about it, and I'm going to fill anyway, so no sense in getting worked up over it.

I have not put any additives. I did just put 20 gallons in a 25 gallon tank. So most is fresh. It does sit a lot so I may put some in. I hate our CA crap gas anyway. I will be making my trips to the desert very soon so it will get some running time.
