Title: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Mike Irwin on October 10, 2014, 06:00:23 AM
Over the past couple of weeks the price of crude oil has been slipping quite a bit, as have gasoline futures.

Oil's down nearly $20 a barrel, and gasoline futures are down nearly 35 cents. (Home heating oil is also dropping, but not nearly as much).

Slowly we're seeing prices move lower at the pump.

At the station nearest me, a Citgo, the price for regular is $3.15 a gallon, which is about as low as I've seen it in my area.

Noticed this morning here in Tulsa that gas is getting close to $2.80 a gallon for regular and then premium (91 octane) that I use in my bike is at $3.10.  I would guess there might be a few places in the area where it is nearing $2.75 for regular.

It's down around 2.90 here, with some places as low as 2.80.

Ames, IA

I run premium in my supercharged pickup truck, so I paid $3.64 for 91 octane last night.

87 E-10 is $3.06 and 87 non E is $3.26

Des Moines, IA (35 miles south) I went there for work in afternoon yesterday.

87 E-10 $2.99
87 no E $3.19
91 $3.29

Here 25 miles north of Seattle, I filled the motorcycle up at Costco yesterday for $ 3.24/gallon of regular.  Which is down five cents per gallon from when I filled up the Ford at Costco last week.

$2.88 (down from $2.91 overnight) at the RaceWay (independent, cheapest available) down the street from me, and matched by the Shell and BP stations nearby.  Down the road about 5 miles it's $2.81.

The talking heads are predicting even lower prices "as we get into the winter months when people are driving less."  You'd think refineries and the rest of the system would know to cut back production in anticipation and keep the supply/demand ratio about stable.

Closest to the house is $3.09.9/gal for 87 octane this AM.  Very handy for many folk, so that can charge a bit more.

Can get as low as $2.90/gal or so at Sams/Costco for 87 octane.

FTR: Newer automobiles will advance/retard ignition to accommodate whatever octane gasoline is poured into them.  The admonition to use Premium is how the manuf games CAFE and EPA rules.  Likely you will not notice hte slight dip in top end performance if you use 87 octane vs more expensive 93 octane.

I wish I could in my pickup, lowest I can go without pinging is 89 octane, which some oil supplier where I live deemed too expensive to offer about a year ago, so that disappeared from all the pumps in Iowa.

I'm never going to have a supercharged/turbocharged gasoline engine daily driver ever again, well unless I get a Ford with an ecoboost.

I sort of feel old doing the "$3 for gas and we're happy about it!!!11!!", since I can remember when a gallon of gas was under a dollar and milk was under $2.

It's just kind of feeling old though, since it was only 15 years ago.

$4.12 for regular, $3.99 for diesel.

While the entire rest of the country sees lower prices, starting in JAN2015, CA is going to add a "carbon tax" (signed into law by the great conservative Schwarzenegger) that is going to drastically increase the per gallon price to the highest in the country. Apparently the law allows for a range for the increase.

No news source seems to give the same figure (partly because of the poorly written law, or maybe they did it on purpose), but the aggregate range is anywhere from $0.16 - $1.30 per gallon. This would be on top of the $0.68/gal tax we already pay. The smart money seems to be betting that they'll start at around $0.20-$0.30/gal, then play the "frog in the pot" game and slowly raise the tax to their maximum over a few years.

I remember when gasoline was 56 cents a gallon, but that was when I was a kid.

When I started paying for gasoline, I think 87 was in the 80 cents a gallon range and hi test was about a buck.

It was around 50 cents just when I started driving in 1976. It had just shot up from hovering around 25 cents for many years. This was right after "gas rationing" where you got gas on certain days based on your license plate being odd or even. Shortly after I started driving it jumped up to around 75 cents.

S.E. Az @ $3.25 for regular. Tucson, regular @ $3.15 which is the standard difference. When I started filling my own car, reg was $.15 a gallon.

My '13 Focus is like that.  The manual says it will work on 87, but higher octane is better.  Folks on the Focus forums have noticed better dyno numbers with premium fuel.  My "seat-of-the-pants" dyno indicates slightly better performance with premium as well.  Not a huge difference, but a bit more solid off the line (tis a 5spd).  I pay about $3.59 for Premium around here.  With a 12gal fill from "running on fumes" level, it's still not an expensive gas bill compared to my old 4Runner on 87octane.

I remember putting gas in my bike at $0.55. It was in the .70- .80 range when I graduated high school.
In '98 for a while it was back under $1.00 but it didn't last long.
I filled my company van last night at $2.89 but the closer to Tulsa you get the lower it goes.

Find it interesting that out in Cali diesel is lower than gas but here in the middle part of the country it runs more than gas.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: KD5NRH on October 10, 2014, 08:56:42 AM
$3.09 Monday when I filled up.  MPG seems to be down around 36 again, so I guess it's time to clean the plugs and intake, and do another pistons soak to get it back up to 38.6.

I certainly didn't expect this back in the days when I could fill up my 1983 Fairmont from dead empty, get a 44oz soda and a pack of Camels, and still get change from a $20.  Took a bit longer to earn that tank of gas, but then I was also a high school student working part time entry level minimum wage jobs too.

"In '98 for a while it was back under $1.00 but it didn't last long."

I remember that. Late summer early fall, IIRC.

87 octane dropped back to about 85 cents a gallon for maybe a week or two, then started a long progressive climb.

I can't figure our diesel prices out. There's a seasonal component of course, but it also fluctuates within that. A couple of weeks ago it was higher than regular, and a couple of weeks before that it was lower. There are also county level aspects regarding taxes. The next county over always has higher diesel than mine, even when their gas is lower, and mine is the one that hates petroleum. I'm pretty sure that's because of their local tax on diesel.

At the "local" station the premium is ethanol free.

I bought five gallons a while back (Aug/Sep ?) for the chain saw - it was well over $4 dollars/gallon at that time  =(

I read somewhere online somebody put premium in their Suburban and got 28mpg  :O  ???   =|

Bunch of whippersnappers!  Gas wars!  Used to be there was a gas station on every corner of major intersections and not only did someone in a snappy uniform - which included a clip-on bowtie and some sort of bus driver hat - pump gas into your tank, they checked your oil, topped up the water in your radiator (we didn't have no stinkin' antifreeze back then), and handed you either a box of laundry detergent that had either or a drinking glass or a dish towel inside right after they blew air into your tires.

Gas was $0.27.9/gal before the war was declared.  It could go down as low as whatever the federal excise tax was.  Cars would line up around  the block and some junior hose jockey in that snappy uniform would be passing out cold sodas (the 5-ounce size) or maybe even ice cream on a stick.  Eventually 3 stations would fall but prices did not go up much above the starting price, if they went up at all.

stay safe.

Forget the average annual salary unless you are converting way-back-then dollars to today dollars and adjust the cost of living figures as well.  In 1953 it was possible to rent a room for $5/week and for another $5/week you could get (admittedly rather meager) breakfast and dinner.  OTOH there were far fewer luxury items that the average working stiff could afford.

The real fun of nostalgia is the selective memory - only to good things get mentioned, while the rest of the stuff that made life back then the same rat-race hellhole as today is ignored.

I remember buying gas for 17 cents a gallon when I was sixteen. At that time I worked as a dishwasher making 95 cents an hour. So, I could buy 5.58 gallons for an hour of work. Maybe this is where the minimum wage movement gets the idea of $15 an hour. If so, they're wrong, as gas prices aren't a good measure of inflation.

Doesn't seem like pries have gone up much there. I remember being in France in 99 and gas was about $5/gal while at home it was probably in the mid $1 range. Worst I've ever paid was in Norway, Think it worked out to around $6,50/gal. Of course the obligatory hot dog and coke to go with the fill-up set me back another $8-9.

Saw a story the other day that oil would likely not drop much further.  A barrel of oil was up by $1.15 at close of trading yesterday.  It's up by $1.17 in current trading.  That is a fairly significant move.  Methinks the bottom has been reached.

Within the past few days, I've seen "name brand" gas (Shell, Exxon) around the Austin area as low as the $2.959 - $2.999 range, though some stations are still up around $3.199.

Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, ALL the local gas has been diluted with ethanol.

Worse, I think the EPA is meddling with mandated "seasonal blends" since MPG of both of my cars is down over past years. (Neighbor had noticed the same thing with his cars.)

Yeah... no.

A lot of people think this, but it has nothing to do with reality.

Crude oil and gasoline are internationally traded commodities, with prices affected primarily by supply and demand levels both in the United States and internationally.

How little the government can affect the price of those commodities can be seen in the relative recent oil releases from the strategic petroleum reserves. The effect on prices was extremely limited and very short lived.

$2.89 at Costco.  $2.95 to $2.99 everyplace else.  OTOH, my gas mileage just went to hell, so it's that winter mix that has a lot of butane in it (not many BTU's) and it's cheaper to produce.

I saw it at 2.69 at one Quiktrip, maybe 20 or 30 miles south of St. Louis. I think one sign read 2.67, near Eureka, but it was hard to tell.

At a couple of places, it was 2.68, for cash customers.

It's not the .gov (well, it is.  But in a round about way).  The economy is contracting (or in Obamaspeak, "Not growing fast enough"), and not just here, but worldwide.  Therefore, less overall demand and all the refineries are at +95% percent operations.

But contracting here:

Well there are a couple of refineries here in Tulsa but not sure what their output is.

As for oil production there seems to be more natural gas than oil production.  Plus as I think most here know but not a lot of people do is that most of the oil pulled from the ground here in the states isn't even refined here it is exported.  We import most of our oil in from South America such as Venezuela.

Isn't there a ban on exporting domestic crude from the 1970's energy crisis? I think I remember recently a little bit of domestic crude was allowed to be exported.

The downward pressure on oil seems to have stalled. Yesterday oil and gas were both sharply up, today not as bad, but still up.

If prices stay in the $81 a barrel range for awhile, it will take a couple of weeks for gas prices to level off, but they should stay under $3 a gallon for at least while.

Post by: Mike Irwin on October 22, 2014, 07:33:37 AM
Hard to say.

There's speculation that the worst of the fall in oil prices is done. For the last few days crude prices have held stead in the $81-82 a barrel range; same with gasoline futures.

Some analysts say that we're going to mill at this level for awhile, others are saying they expect the price to drop down to the $75 range. All of that is speculative based on what they expect OEPC to do at their meeting in a few weeks (cut production). If they don't come to a production agreement, though, prices could continue to drop.

Also...

The weekly stockpile report came back showing an unexpected build up in crude reserves and a lower than expected drawdown in refined gasoline stockpiles, so prices are trending lower this morning.

I paid $2.95 a gallon this morning, and I've seen it as low as $2.91.

Gas is headed back up fast.  Up 12 cents in two days this week.  Oil is up almost $10 a barrel over the last two weeks due to US rigs being taken out of production.  Most curious because oil production is still rising in the US, and so are oil and distillate stocks.

The oil price rise does not appear to be a dead cat bounce, though.  Back to $3-something a gallon by June?

The labor dispute is part of it, but from what I've read only a small part.  It's apparently the large number of rigs being taken out of production in the US.  Even the Permian Basin fields that don't rely on as much fracking are seeing a significant drop in rig count.

Hahahaha, they are bitching about the high out-of-pocket and health insurance costs. 

YOU VOTED FOR THE *expletive deleted*er, AND NOW YOU ARE GETTING IT GOOD AND HARD.  SUCKS TO BE YOU.

Anyway, fire them and hire the replacements.  Given the economy (and the location of Whiting near Chicago), I bet there's a Revload of folks that would love to have those jobs.

But yeah, production is dropping as prices drop.  HELLO Supply and Demand !!  I figure it will settle at around $2.50/gal.  Maybe a bit lower.  It's $219-$2.39 around here.  I filled up for $2.19/gal on Saturday.   Still pretty cheap compared to what Obama and Chu wanted back in 2008-09. ($9-$10+ per gallon)

There's a tremendous range of prices here, from one station to another. Like a 50 cents per gallon spread. Fortunately, the station with the lowest prices within 25 miles of me happens to be right on my way home. Last Wednesday the price bottomed out at $2.11. Friday it was up to $2.13. I'm sure tomorrow it'll be a few cents higher than that.

Oh, and as the "FunFact" of the day.  The reason they are on strike isn't wages, but the cost of Healthcare Insurance.  Seems their Gold-plated union policies have been "Grubered" and they are not happy about.

Road fund. I do support it because our fuel taxes go right back into road construction/improvements. Because vehicles are more fuel efficient then they were with the last increase in 1989, money was really starting to shrink and our roads/bridges are getting really bad in a lot of rural areas. Also it is a consumptive tax, you only pay it if you purchase road fuels.

I wish they would have made it a graduated tax: .03 this year, .04 next year and .03 in year 3.

I'm glad they didn't raise vehicle taxes/registration instead.

Part of the jump has been the expected seasonal jump in price caused by the change over from winter to summer blend gasolines.

The price of crude oil is still the primary driver for the cost of gasoline and other distillates, and the price of crude isn't going up all that quickly right now.

We're still experiencing a significant oversupply of crude (US stores are at or near record levels).

Unrest in Yemen is playing on the price of crude, and the Saudis appear to be winning somewhat in their game of brinksmanship with the shale producers in the US and Canada.

Another factor driving prices right now are speculators who are anticipating the biggest driving season in nearly a decade in the US, which means burning a LOT more gasoline.

Then there's the fact that hedge funds and speculators took an absolute reaming over the past year, and now they're trying to get back into the markets low to hopefully recoup some of their losses.

I think among all the regular stuff, we're being hit because of the stupid CA special blend thing and a few current refinery problems. I'm pretty sure that's why my diesel is only relatively lower when compared to CA gasoline.

There are various plans afoot to increase our fuel tax here in SC for "roads improvement". Across the board I do not support them because the SC DOT is a financial black hole...money goes into it and is never seen again.

But anybody against increasing the taxes is labeled as against improved/safer roads. "For the roads! Why do you hate better roads?" is the equivalent of "For the children!"

 I am not against improving the roads, I am very much against pointless increases of taxes that pour yet more money into a broken state government where it will be used for anything BUT it's stated purpose. How about they take the money we already give them and use it to do their *expletive deleted*ing jobs and improve the roads...show me THAT happening and then maybe, just maybe, we can talk about an increase in taxes to fund it.

It's a problem from the local to the Federal level. I think most people would not have much of a problem with the taxes if they all went to road infrastructure. The fact that on the Federal level, they can't account for nearly 50% of the tax revenue does not make we want to jump on the "raise the tax to improve roads" bandwagon. First show me what you can do with 100% of the current tax being devoted to infrastructure, then we can talk.

"cleanest" has nothing to do with it. Its creating blends that supposedly address specific air quality issues in those regions.

You have not been assimilated. You MUST be assimilated.

As with everything, the jury is out, but when I first moved to DC in 1990 it wasn't uncommon for us to have a significant number of air quality alert days, sometimes as many as 20-30 a summer.

I remember more than once seeing a brown smog haze over DC.

Don't see that anymore.

Here's an article that talks about it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2013/05/30/code-orange-air-quality-alert-for-d-c-area-first-of-2013/


And here's an article from 2014: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/wp/2014/10/03/d-c-air-quality-just-keeps-getting-better-zero-code-red-days-in-2014/

2014 was extra special in DC because it was one of the mildest summers in decades.


Winter air quality has also gotten better with the introduction of oxygenated fuels.

I suspect this has more to do with catalytic converters removing NOx.  Very few cars on the road without that tech now vs the early 90's.

And the gasoline was formulated to further enhance the performance of catalytic converters at various times of the year as well as account for those vehicles that didn't have them.

The primary summer pollutant is ozone in the DC metro area, with oxygenated gasolines being used in winter to cut down on carbon monoxide, which is the primary winter pollutant.

Very few things are ever "the one, the only, THE solution!", and this is one of them. It's a multi-tiered approach. You want to see what can happen when there's little to none of this approach? Beijing.

I'm personally not a big fan of a lot of what the gub does, but in the case of gasoline enhancements, I'm pretty much all for it.

Most of it will be driven by the retarded monkeys who trade oil, either through direct commodity tenders or via the large hedge funds. Many of them were hurt pretty badly in the drop over the last few months.

Hey Scout,

Great news! Itĺs time. Your new and improved BP Driver Rewards program is here. And to celebrate, weĺre pumping it up even more with a limited-time offer.

      Limited-time offer:
Earn 25ó off per gallon

for every $100 spent on BP fuel at participating locations from now until September 1st, 2015.* After September 1st, 2015, you will receive 10ó off per gallon.**


You donĺt need to do a thing. Just head to your participating local BP station, and start earning today.
No need to get a new card either ľ use the one you have. Or use your registered phone number at the pump to earn and redeem rewards.ć

The only reason I got the card was that I running low and needed to buy gas in Illinois.  Pulled into my local BP (as it was enroute and I didn't have time to drive the 5 miles to the cheapest place per gasbuddy.com),  Saw their "Say $.20 per gallon on your first fill-up and $.05 per gallon after.  Grabbed one of the cards from the flyer holder on the pump.  Used my phone to register it, and got my $.20 off.  I've used it once since to get my $.05  (I also get $.05 off at Pilot stations, but the closest one is Gary, IN on the way to my folks, which is also $.20-$.40 cheaper due to the lack of Illinois taxes.)  So this will be handy around here, should the need arise.  And also this summer when we travel.

If there are BP's in your area, $.20 off per gallon is pretty good deal.

Irag announced they are going to increase production by 26%, curious what that will do to global oil prices.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/iraq-flood-oil-market-front-143746722.html

I wonder what it will do to OPEC.  I bet, it will be Katy-bar-the-door on Production.  Venezuela is probably going to ramp up also as it's economy hits bottom and starts to dig.   And even ISIS is selling the oil from the areas it seizes, so there's no net loss when they take over.

As of right now your non-expert opinion sucks. :rofl:

Brent and WTI are both down, and gasoline and heating oil (the one that I really stress over because of Mom's house) are down sharply again.

Now that we're through the first major travel day of the season gasoline prices should hopefully stabilize a bit. To be honest, I expected the prices to rise harder than they did.

Gasoline at the station near my house is $2.67, at the station near CastleKey's house is $2.61, and in Pennsylvania between $2.75 and $2.89 where I was traveling this past weekend.

It was $2.53 when I was in Indy over weekend, and that was before I got $.20 off at BP, and another $.05 for using my USAA card.   So my net cost was $2.28.

Gas Stations here are $3.25 as of Tuesday.  I sooooooo hate Illinois.

Of the three gas station close by the house, two raised their prices .10 for the holiday to $2.59.  The third station left theirs at $2.45.  Of course, they got most of the business over the weekend.  Those two stations that raised their prices have yet to drop them back to pre-holiday levels as of Wednesday.  I'm starting to think they may have been a regular price increase having nothing to do with the holiday weekend.  If the third station raises their prices in a few days we'll know for sure.

Might be some SERIOUS spikes in gas prices over the next week or so.

WTI and Brent were both up in excess of 4%.

Gasoline futures were up over 5%, and heating oil futures were up over 4.5%

All for a US draw down of 2.8 million barrels of crude over the last week...

Actually it is supply and demand.  They are trying to forecast both in the futures martkets.  A lot of factors go into that, various wars, current and projected production levels, projected demand (like summer driving season and how the low prices may affect that), along with a large variety of other factors.

So if commodity traders have to have the ability to "possess" the commodity, then travel websites have own airlines and hotels?  NVOCC's need to own ships and airplanes?  What about retailers that don't maintain any inventory, but drop ship instead?  Should they be allowed to do it?

Ideally, yes they are. In practice they are trying to corner the market.  Think Hunt brothers and silver.  That's why the rules were changed in that market years ago requiring possession.

The Germans.  =D

If they still sell lower ABV beer cold, seems like all you have to do is drink more of it as you drive away.

Funny, I have a friend who lived in Puerto Rico for a while, and she said all the gas stations sold alcohol in containers that looked like kids juice containers for drinking on the road. I forget the name the locals called it, but something akin to "road beer".

When the local city council was debating drive through alcohol sales, it was brought up that in a town 5 miles by 3 miles and bounded on all sides by 45-55mph highways, even if one could instantaneously swallow an entire case of beer, they shouldn't be able to absorb much of it before getting home.  Thus, the real concern for DUI would still come from bars and from stores well outside the city.

You can't buy beer higher than 3.2 abv other than at a liquor store and they can't sell it  cold. Cause folks might buy it and drink and drive. Of course nothing stopping them from buy a bottle wine or cheap vodka and drinking and driving.
We should have a ballot measure to fix that in November. Your guess is as good as mine if it will pass.

Fricking gas prices are not going down like they should be in Northern Virginia. Wholesale is sitting at $1.67 a gallon right now, and we're paying an average of about $2.75. I'm seeing it lower in Arlington, $2.61, but it's much higher in other areas.

Heating oil wholesale is down to $1.539 a gallon, but the price in Pennsylvania doesn't seem to be slipping all that much, either.

They're finally building the gas station at our WalMart, so it'll be interesting to see if we finally get close to the prices 30 miles away in a town with a third of our population.  (Usually a 10-12 cent spread, though I've seen as much as 27 cents difference when it was $2.529 here.  They have a couple of overpriced stations, but three along the main US highway tend to be the lowest prices.)  That one is sort of on my way to DFW, (Adds about 5 miles on a 150 mile round trip to DFW, or 10 when going to aikido class in Weatherford to go through there and fill up.  Worth it with 35-38 mpg, especially when filling a couple of 5 gallon cans in addition to the 12 gallon tank.)

Yesterday gasoline and heating oil both spiked hard, and crude rose, based on reports from China that they've been buying more oil and their economy seems to be kick starting.

Today the situation is almost completely reversed, with oil dropping hard, and gasoline and heating oil futures giving back almost everything that they gained yesterday, apparently because late yesterday the Chinese devalued the Yuan.

I'm starting to think the unthinkable...

That crude oil could slip below $40 a barrel in the coming weeks, and with the end of the driving season and the switch back to cheaper blendstock gasoline the price at the pump could drop quite a bit more.

Well, Pilot was $2.349, but Granbury Racetrac was $2.189.  Just seems crazy to have that much variation in about 20 miles, especially given that there was a $2.529 station along the interstate in Weatherford with a $2.399 one right across from it.  Have to wonder if people are really not willing to cross the street to save $0.13/gallon.

"Just seems crazy to have that much variation in about 20 miles,"

It's not uncommon in this area to see that much variation in stations that are across the street from each other.

When  I first moved to the DC area there was one station, an Exxon, near the intersection of the George Washington Parkway, Route 123, and near the Chain Bridge.

Not a remote area by any stretch of the imagiation, and not that far from any number of gas stations less than a mile away...

Yet the gas at that Exxon was always 40 to 60 cents a gallon more than any other station in the area.



There was also an Exxon near where Mtnbkr and I used to work. VERY heavily traveled area in the heart of Tysons Corners, near a lot of office buildings, I66, and major auto dealerships. That one always had a 20 to 40 cent mark up over the Shell station that was literally right across the street.

The town I grew up near is on I-10 West of Houston.  The stations along the interstate were always 5 to 10 cents higher than anything even a couple hundreds yards off the interstate. 

There was also an Exxon service station there.  They were always 10 cents higher than everyone else.  Few local people ever went there.  It is out of business and torn down now.

Yup.  Another example - There's a Hess at the corner of John Marr and Little River Tpk/236 in Annandale; just up John Marr at Columbia Pike is a BP.  The BP is *ALWAYS* about $0.40/gal higher than anywhere else, including the Hess a block away.

I don't know that I've ever seen a car there, in the 9 years I've lived in NoVA.  No idea how they stay open.

Yup.  Another example - There's a Hess at the corner of John Marr and Little River Tpk/236 in Annandale; just up John Marr at Columbia Pike is a BP.  The BP is *ALWAYS* about $0.40/gal higher than anywhere else, including the Hess a block away.

I don't know that I've ever seen a car there, in the 9 years I've lived in NoVA.  No idea how they stay open.

It's funny when passing through Mineral Wells on US281; there's a pair of stations, one on the north side and one on the south that are regularly $0.15 cheaper than the others, but they use old mechanical pumps so you have to go in and prepay.  There's never a line for the two pumps at each of them.  Even with MW's relatively poor population, (the averages don't do it justice, as there are a couple of disproportionately expensive neighborhoods where house values are 7-8 figures, but most of the town is in the low to very low five figures) people won't take an extra minute to save $2 on a fillup.

Oil of course forms the base for the price of gasoline and all other distillates, but gasoline itself is a traded commodity, which adds another pricing mechanism into the mix.

Another "why's it so more expensive here" story.

The station near my house, a Citgo, is about $2.65 a gallon right now. Around the corner, on a very busy road, are a number of stations. The Sunoco is about the same price as the Citgo, the Shell a bit higher.

Near Castlekey's house about 10 miles away prices are running about $2.51 a gallon (there are 4 stations in very close proximity - Liberty, Sunoco, BP, and Shell. The Liberty is usually the cheapest by a few pennies, and the Shell the most expensive by a few pennies. A half mile away on the same road is an Exxon, which is normally about 15 cents a gallon more expensive. It's the only station that's visible in that area, so that probably drives the price somewhat.

Near where I shop, on a very busy road, is an Exxon. Again, it's the only visible station for about a mile or more in either direction, but certainly not isolated at all. Last night it was still sitting at $2.99 a gallon, and I suspect that it's going to be at that price for a long time.

It seems that in this area if a gas station isn't in eyeshot of another station, the price immediately jumps by 10 to 15 cents a gallon.

Crude oil, by itself, has virtually no applications other than being converted into refined materials.

WTI and gasoline futures are getting pummeled today.

Gasoline has slipped below $2.50 a gallon at a couple of stations in my area.

I heard an industry analyst on WTOP radio saying that he expects gasoline to drop below $2 a gallon in the National Capitol Region.

The recent headline that absolutely killed me is here: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-08-17/algeria-calls-for-non-opec-output-cut-to-stop-oil-price-slump

Essentially, the head of Alergia's oil production (I think) has called on NON-OPEC producers to cut production to shore up prices.

In other words, he wans non OPEC producers to surrender market share that will be immediately grabbed by OPEC.

And just HOW would the "Big Bad 'Bama" do that?

Everyone seems to think that the President, PERSONALLY (and no matter who the President is) has a big valve in the Oval Office that he can turn to control the supply of fuel and crude oil.

Because there's no state agency that controlls production, as there is in Russia and Venezuela or the other OPEC nations, the government can't arbitrarily screw with production to produce a short-term event.

If EPA tried to shut down refineries on an arbitrary whim, the Federal court injunction stopping that action would take maybe 8 hours to be issued. It's happened before, in the 1970s, when Carter's Energy Czar (IIRC it was him) tried to do a massive quasi-nationalization of production, storage, and refining in response to the OPEC embargos.

It didn't work.

It's looking very possible that crude oil might break through the $40 a barrel barrier today.

Gasoline futures are continuing to drop, nearly 15 cents a gallon in the last two days.

China's stock market/economy continues to wallow, and we're getting ready for another big selloff in the early going for the Dow.

Noticed that oil has dropped well below the $40/barrel level finally.  I wonder if the drop will accelerate now that that psychological barrier has been crossed?

The true drop in gas prices are going to come right after Labor Day, aka "Everyone Stops Driving Because All The Little Shits Are Back in Skool Day."

I think oil has an outside shot at closing below $38 a barrel today, but more likely above $38, maybe even slightly above $39.

Gasoline and heating oil futures are getting absolutely pummeled right now, down 6 cents and almost 5.5 cents, respectively. The heating oil number is the one that really interests me because of Mom.

Liking the lower gas  prices but even though we all hate them the US oil producers are starting to feel the pinch. I don't see them going too much longer without additional major workforce reductions. If OPEC and friends can hold out long enough to shut down our domestic production then just a little longer so that it won't be just a matter of flipping a switch and turning it back on and we'll see $100 a barrel again.

The lowest price I've seen locally is $2.52 for regular. Other stations in the area range from $2.57 (two) up into the $2.80s. Saw one station up-state a couple of weeks ago that was $2.41.

For awhile the price was dropping about 2 cents a day. The $2.52 price has been in place for a week or two now, so I sort of think it may have bottomed out.

"If OPEC and friends can hold out long enough to shut down our domestic production then just a little longer so that it won't be just a matter of flipping a switch and turning it back on and we'll see $100 a barrel again."

Except... there's absolutely no sign of any will within OPEC to do anything more tham pump. And Iranian oil hasn't even been factored in.

OPEC members are engaged in a huge amount of infighting over market share right now, which gives them even less incentive to cut production.

Some of the headlines coming out of OPEC have been hysterical bordering on inane.

Algeria last week called for non-OPEC members to cut production... in other words, cut their own production and allow OPEC members to re-establish a stranglehold on production.

Then, just a few days ago, Iran called on OPEC to take steps to secure and bolster oil prices... while at the same time saying that they're going to pump every drop of crude that they can to grow their market share.

I'm sure I know what Saudi Arabia's response to that would be... MOAR OILZ! PUMPZIES! PUMPZIES! FASTER, PUSSYCAT, PUMP! PUMP!

Over the last 20 or so years OPEC has stopped being an effective framework for controlling oil prices, or even supply and demand.

Oil is back above the $40 psychological barrier this morning and still rising.  Gas is up six cents wholesale and climbing.
China's government intervened in some fashion in the market (the story did not say what form the intervention took) and the Shanghai Composite went from a .7% loss to a 5.3% gain in the last hour of trading.
If China's stock market truly stabilizes, then the oil and gas markets have likely hit their bottom as well.  Much of the downward pressure on oil prices has been driven by perceived weakness in Chinese demand.  It would not surprise me if this is where the speculators get their herd mentality back in sync and drive oil prices slowly upward again.

"It would not surprise me if this is where the speculators get their herd mentality back in sync and drive oil prices slowly upward again."

Except that there are several other gorillas in the room right now, too:

1. Massive global stockpiles.

2. Continuing overproduction, which will generally only get worse with a rise in the price of oil, which makes it more profitable for marginal producers to produce.

3. Iran. Iran has already said that once its markets reopen it's going to pump as much as it can as fast as it can to establish and capture market share. The likely Saudi response to that is going to be PUMPZ MOAR OILZ! It's very likely that they'll get tied into a supply war with Iran.

What we're seeing today, I believe, is a move by traders to get into any commodity class that they can to grab some quick profits. Same with precious metals today, and most other traded commodities. I suspect that this is nothing more than a rather temporary upwards correction.

US gasoline prices should continue to decline in the near term because we're very close to the move to winter blendstock, which is cheaper, and Labor day is the end of the heavy use driving season.

In other words,  I may not be bearish, but I'm certainly not bullish.

Get it while you can.  It will start back up soon with the $8/barrel increase in oil the last three days.

Maybe, maybe not. There's a strong overcost bias built into the price of gasoline right now.

With oil trading in the $40-45 a barrel range you'd normally expect to see the price about 50 cents a gallon lower on average.

If this recent jump in prices of both wholesale oil and gasoline is, as I suspect, rather short lived with the pending end of the summer driving season, I'm thinking any jump in prices will be minimal and short lived.

I hope you're right, Mike.  However, most of the recent rise in oil prices was, in my opinion, speculators reacting to the govt's fiddling with GDP growth numbers last week to make them look better than they truly are.  I suspect we have hit bottom for this go-around.  Oil will be going up for a while until the reality of .gov's fiddling with GDP numbers becomes apparent and market forces reassert themselves on prices.  How far prices will rise is anybody's guess.
At some point gas will have to follow if the rise in oil prices continues.  Perhaps with the downward pressure caused by the end of the summer driving season, we'll see gas prices stabilize rather than increase.

Yes, it was. And that desire to rush into the oil markets based on a positive report in the US can be quashed by yet more economic woe coming out of China, more reports on how glutty the oil market is, how big US stockpiles are, etc. Happened before, it will happen again.

Right now we're still in a situation that favors a downward trend, especially if Congress approves the Iranian nuke deal and they start moving oil into the global markets.

Forgot to mention that the station I filled up at yesterday morning for $2.399 had dropped to $2.359 yesterday afternoon.

And the Citgo near my house had raised the price from $2.499 to $2.519. But, on the weekends, they knock 6 cents a gallon off, so right now it should be $2.459.

Your analysis may be closer than mine.  I was reading this afternoon that Chinese investors have little confidence in their government's ability to continue propping up their stock market.  There are a lot of international investors with the same sentiment.  It could get interesting.

Every analyst report I saw/read over the weekend considers what happened last week to be a momentary blip in the general downward trend for oil.

A few are even predicting low $30s high $20s as the eventual bottom.

OPEC blinked, wants to talk to other producers about achieving "fair pricing", and "The Energy Information Administration trimmed its U.S. production forecast by as much as 130,000 barrels a day for the first five months of the year as it switches to a new survey, the agency said on its website."
Oil immediately spiked $2.22 over where it had started the day, after being down $1.60 a barrel earlier.
The ride gets bumpy from here on out as OPEC loses their influence over pricing, and US oil production cycles up and down with the bouncing oil prices.

I figured OPEC would have to slow their pumping at some point.  They've been eating into their currency reserves at a substantial rate. And while they have enormous reserves, more than the other OPEC members, those reserves won't last forever.  There comes a time when their fight for market share becomes too expensive.
It's going to be interesting, following oil prices after this.
Wholesale gasoline and other refined product prices shot up today, too.  Well, the cheap gas was nice while it lasted.

$1.93/gallon in Spotsylvania, Va this afternoon.  Self serve and the you-don't-have-hold-the-lever-thing was removed.

Back in the day  :old: when we were still squeezing petroleum products out of the dinosaurs as they lumbered past, there were things known as "gas wars".  Anywhere from 2 to 4 stations at an intersection and all of a sudden one of them would start trying to force the others out of business by lowering prices, increasing service, and increasing the premium giveaways.  One of the better ones got down to charging only the federal tax (some stupid law prevented them from paying even a portion of it), three 3 guys in snappy uniforms with clip-on patent leather bow ties and pisscutter or bus driver hats charging out at the sound of the bell to wash your windshield front and back plus at least the driver's side window, check your oil and scald themselves pouring water from a galvanized can into your radiator, deflate your tires to the recommended cold pressure even though you had been driving all day, and hand you a box of laundry detergent with a part of a dinnerware set, a box of dishwashing detergent with a dish towel inside, toys for the kiddies, and if you went to the right station a new toothbrush in crinkly plastic and what we now call a travel size tube of either Ipana or Colgate toothpaste.  After all that was taken care of the head guy of the crew would ask if you wanted any gas, and if so ethyl or the other stuff.

Of course, this might involve waiting in a line that made the 70s embargo conga lines look like speed skating.

Those were the days when you could ride your bike down to the gas station and drive over the air hose repeatedly until the owner came out and threatened to call your parents.  And when you could either bring your leaky inner tube and get it patched and filled for anywhere from free to a nickle, or buy an inner tube (that might or might not burst on you when you were out over your head at the beach) for a dime.

I worked at one of those stations around 1968 at a corner in Lawton OK. We didn't have a station across from us but in order to pull the business from closer to town we would lower prices. We got down to 12.9 cents per gallon for about 2 days before we had business and could start raising prices again.

I didn't wear a spiffy tie but I was expected to show up in clean clothes and a button up shirt ( I am not sure we had anything else back then). Pump the gas, wash the windshield and offer to check the oil and tires.

"I figured OPEC would have to slow their pumping at some point."

OPEC really isn't saying anything about slowing pumping right now. The want to enter into discussions with non-OPEC producers to "support a fair price for oil."

What that really means is "You MoFos get the fudge out of the oil business and let OPEC sell all the world's oil."

Personally I have a very hard time seeing that this will go anywhere quickly, and I think a lot of analysts are feeling the same way. While OPEC is a block and professes unity, each nation desperately wants to protect its piece of the market. OPEC has production limits in place, which are routinely violated by almost all of its members because they're trying to capture as much market share as they can.

Remember, back when the price of oil started falling, Saudi Arabia made it very clear that their intention was to pump like hell, let the price fall, and hopefully drive North American rigs, especially shale oil, out of production.

I think the ONLY reason that they're broaching this right now is because Iran is getting ready to jump back on line if the nook agreement is signed and sanctions are eased, and Iran is the only nation that can really give Saudi Arabia a run for its money production wise.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: RocketMan on September 01, 2015, 05:32:40 AM
Saudi Arabia is between a rock and a hard place with regard to oil.  At some point they are going to have to cut back on pumping to drive prices back up.  With Iran about to jump back into the market (if the nuke deal is signed, which is a definite maybe), they may have decided to forgo the market share war and move to cut production and prop up prices.  They need the money for all the reasons discussed previously.
Also, SA has hit the bond market recently to fund their budget deficit to lessen the draw down on currency reserves.

One of the articles I read mentioned SA has already internally decided to cut production and wants to get the rest of OPEC on board through these discussions.  Another said that SA just wants to start the discussion in that direction, with no indication a decision has been made.  It would be nice to know which was the more accurate.

I suspect most OPEC members would like to see a production cut to drive prices higher as many of them are in much more serious budget straits than SA.  I would bet SA could pretty easily herd all those cats in the same direction right now, with the exception of Iran.  Iran is a wild card, as they desperately want more market share to make up for what they have lost due to the embargo, but they also want prices to rise.  Somewhat mutually exclusive desires given the current market (and very dependent on the nuke deal).  Iran needs pricing north of $100/barrel for their own budget reasons, but that goal may not be attainable.

Can OPEC exert as much clout to maintain higher prices long term?  Probably not, what with increased production world wide by non-OPEC members, including the US.  OPEC's influence is certainly waning.
At this point I am wondering if this price spike event will mark the beginning of the long term oil price oscillation we discussed earlier in this thread.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Mike Irwin on September 01, 2015, 05:56:19 AM
Saudi Arabia figures that they're sitting on more than enough hard cash right now that they can push smaller producing nations and independents like US drillers out of business, or at least make it so costly for them to do business that they'll shutter wells, and they can swoop in and pick off the market share.

They know exactly what they're doing is an enormous game of brinksmanship. They're not dumb people.

So far its working to a degree. Venezuelan oil production is plummeting at a staggering rate due to socialist lack of maintenance (can't spend money maintaining the rigs, we gotta give the people lots of free *expletive deleted*it!), Russia is getting to the same position, a bunch of US wells have been shuttered, etc.

Right now it's complete and total speculation as to what the Saudis are going to do. When they want to be, they can be very cagey.

"Can OPEC exert as much clout to maintain higher prices long term?"

We're seeing entirely new language in the oil discussion -- fair price.

That's only started popping up in the last few months or so.

I have no doubt that I know the Saudi definition of "fair price" -- a price more than enough for us to make a profit and control market share, but not high enough to make it profitable for US/Canadian and non-OPEC drillers to make a profit.

As I said, they are playing a very fine game of brinksmanship. It's a game they know how to play, and one that they're pretty good at.

Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: RocketMan on September 01, 2015, 06:47:38 AM
One thing for sure, Mike, whatever happens will be interesting to watch.  That "fair price" language is new.  I hadn't made that connection yet, even though it was in the stories I read.
While they still have enormous currency reserves, SA has still hit them pretty hard waging this war for market share.  I don't recall the details of the last projection I read, but there was mention that SA would likely not maintain this gambit for more than a couple of years at the outside.  I think that is behind their recent large bond sales, the first since 2007.
Another concern for them is that they have no other real industry to fall back on when the oil runs out.  Diversification is something they are only now beginning to look at.  SA is going to be in real trouble long term if they don't figure something out.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Mike Irwin on September 01, 2015, 07:53:30 AM
Of course they've been hit hard. They factored that in. They knew that they'd have to draw down their currency reserves. They want to replace the money they made with $100 a barrel oil with money they make from $72 a barrel oil AND the extra market share that they capture.

Their bond sales are another indication that they're digging in for the long term. By financing debt, as opposed to paying it, they get money up front, which keeps them from making even bigger drawdowns on their hard currency, and spread the cost over a longer period of time. Yes, they pay more, but they're figuring they're going to win this, or at least come out in a very advantageous position.

The fact that they can play this game for a couple of years is a LOT longer than anyone else can play it. If you're going to war, you generally want to go from a position of strength, and that's what they've done.

As of right now OARP has given up most of yesterday's gains.

$1.76 yesterday...$1.69 last weekend.

I literally can't remember the last time I saw gas at $1.69. 1999 maybe?

2003-2004 IIRC.

1999 gas in Iowa was $1.17-1.34. I was self employed as a carpenter, so I kept records of all my expenses.

Okay, you just provoked me into logging on to "Gas Buddy".  They show Costco prices at $2.45.  We dropped our Costco membership years ago when the closest one to us became a "business center."  Sam's Club is showing up at $2.49 to $2.75.  Except at the one close to us.  Then there are a few at 10 to 15 cents less than $2.99, but they are all far enough of that I'm not going to spend the time (traffic!) and miles to get to them. Especially with an 11 gallon tank.  I put 7 gallons in it yesterday.  Driving across town to save a buck or less ain't gonna happen.

Gas Buddy shows the highest prices (regular) running from $3.21 at a 7-11 to a Sinclair at $3.39.

In or near MY turf, $2.99 is the best I'm gonna get at the moment.  I would find it hard to believe that we pay more because we're in a higher income area.  Our household is pretty average.

Refinery maintenance. Preparations to manufacture “summer blend” fuel. A refinery workers strike. Gasoline supply speculation. An explosion and fire at yet another refinery.

Time to revive this.

The price had been holding pretty steady for a couple of weeks, but it's now on the way down again.

The station near my house is still at $2.15, but the stations near where Castlekey lives are down to $2.03 after having been stalled around $2.13 for the better part of a month.


Even better, the price of heating oil is down significantly this year. Last year it was costing Mom upwards $3.70 a gallon, now it's under $2.00. Still way too damned expensive.

OARP is dropping today. West Texas was down well over $1 a barrel earlier today, and gasoline and heating oil were both down over a penny a gallon, but all are recovering somewhat now.


Selling some of the strategic oil reserve isn't going to have much impact now. By 2018 most analysts suspect that the glut will largely be gone and prices will be back up.

Per gallon.  The price showing on the pump changes.  I filled up for less then $40.  They have had that going for a couple months now.  Maybe I should ask if the credit union should be raising the savings account interest rates instead.  I am not sure who is eating that cost.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: KD5NRH on October 27, 2015, 01:43:01 PM
It's nice getting change from a ten when filling a five gallon can.  (Or more often, putting the few remaining cups in the car's tank.)  It's even nicer that $20 will pretty much fill my tank unless I had to push the car to the pump, and that that's enough for over 400 miles of open road driving.  Even with my long weekend drives to north Dallas, I rarely do over 250-300 in a weekend, and that would assume either two activities in very different places, or a not-very-convenient place to sleep on someone's couch...and nobody to carpool with from Granbury or Weatherford.

Dropped to $1.99 at a station near Castle Key's house, and also $1.99 at the station down the street from me.

Within a day or two at least two of the three other stations near Castle Key will be at $1.99. The Shell station is always a couple of pennies more, but they have the gas rewards program with Giant food in the area, so I'm sure people are paying a lot less.

I'd get my gas there, but when I'm going through in the correct direction it's always way too early for it to be open.

It was 1.99 when I left NC last week. It's easy to find 1.79 here in Dover-New Philli Ohio.

A couple of years ago I would have bet we would never see gas below 2. Surprisingly, people here are not happy about it, since the oil money has been a large economic force for the past 5 years, and as oil prices fall, all the exploitation business is drying up.

Good reason for each person in the household to have a separate card and divide up the shopping list to put points on each.

Not that it would ever be relevant to me; the car only holds 12 gallons, and I rarely carry more than the 5 and 2 gallon can, so I max out at 19 plus what the filler neck holds.

West Texas Intermediate crude has broken below $40 a barrel, and it looks like it's going to stay there; down almost 5% for the day. Pretty much the same for Brent.

Even better, both gasoline and heating oil futures are down over 6 cents a gallon.

WTI is above $36 right now, with a day gain of $1.01 a barrel at the moment. But it's been quite volatile, so that might not last. Or, it might skyrocket.

Seemingly innocuous bits of news are causing monkey madness on the commodities markets.

The one I'm particularly happy about is heating oil. It's at $1.14 and change a gallon right now on the futures market. It was in the lower half of $1.09 a gallon earlier. If this warm winter weather holds out in the North East (largest market by far) it should continue its downward trend very nicely.

If other commodity prices are any indication, no.  Copper prices are now down by what, 40% from their last peak?  Finished copper containing goods like wire haven't budged.  I keep looking at SEU for installing a new meter base at the house, plus Cat6 cable for some network stuff.  SEU actually increased over the last few months while commodity copper moved down significantly.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Mike Irwin on January 03, 2016, 06:22:48 AM
The primary reason why wire prices haven't budged yet is because housing starts have been pretty steadily picking up, so there's not been a tremendous slackening of demand.

When something is based on a traded commodity -- copper is used to make pipe, wire, etc. -- those products don't fall in price nearly as quickly as when both the base product AND the finished product -- crude oil and gasoline -- are both market traded commodities.

Gas prices are all over the board around here.  While out and about they ranged from $1.97 (1.77 with car wash) to $2.27.   If there's still a $.20 difference then I might just get a car wash when I fill up.  Espscially since they have been salting the roads around here.


And then I came across this (http://news.yahoo.com/exclusive-saudi-arabia-says-cut-flights-trade-iran-150946423.html).*  Which will probably send gas prices every which way again.  Up - due to more ME "tensions".   And Down - due to SA and Iran trying to undercut each other on oil prices.

It is here in Iowa, big news all over the state about it over the weekend. Now this is the price off the truck, small retail outfits that fill grill bottles are going to charge more because they don't go through inventory like the residential/commercial delivery folks do.

Ag marketers are urging farmers to buy propane now for next year's grain drying. When you go through 100,000+ gallons of propane for drying, nickels and pennies make a difference on your bottom line.

Central CA, $2.45 for regular and diesel, except holy cow, diesel was $2.07 at Costco this morning. I usually shine on the line at Costco for the lousy couple of bucks, but for that cheap for diesel, I think I'm going to get in line.

I need to check and see what propane is right now. The guy didn't fill up the tank when he was out last week (which he usually does, once a month except in Summer) so I have to wonder if they're waiting to see if the price goes back up so they can charge more next month.

Oddly enough, the price at the station near me went back to 1.89 a gallon (from 1.84.)

The president (any president) has the same control over oil prices as he does over the stock market, which is virtually none.

Far too many mouth breathers think that there's a great big valve in the Oval office, and at a whim the President can go in and turn it to control prices.

Oil, gasoline, and heating oil are internationally traded market commodities, the prices of which are set by the actions of market traders. Yes, they can be influenced by the words of a national leader, but unless that national leader is the head of one of the heavyweight oil producing nations, the influence isn't going to be all that dramatic.

Mostly agree, though there is the small valve connected to national reserves that can and has been turned on before.  There's only so much a president can drain from the reserves though. I don't know what the maximum price effect that it can have time-wise is, but I would suspect not more than a year or so, and that would still be tied to market forces. I can't remember how big an effect it had when the last Bush did it.

Also, I think the strategic reserve valve only turns one way, to artificially reduce prices in a high market.

BBBBBBBBBBBBBWWWWWWWWWWWWWWHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahah!

The last two releases from the reserve were in 2005 (Hurricane Katrina supply domestic pumping interruption) and 2011 (disruptions caused by the Arab Spring movement, and matched by a similar release by IEA nations).

In both cases the price of oil was trending sharply higher. The releases only slowed the upward spiral, and only for less than a week, if that.

The reality is that a release from the SPR will do nothing to contain oil when it's in a climb mode being fueled by level production and rising demand.

No problemo. Also, I wasn't promoting their use (not that you said I was). I think using the strategic reserves in that way is stupid. They're called strategic for a reason, so I don't like to see administrations using them for crap like temporary price relief for consumers. It's a short-term solution that ends up making free market corrections take longer.

If you were to calculate in the costs of dragging out a price rise by slowing it down, it might actually end up costing consumers more money.

A more routine transaction involves short-term borrowing from the reserve.

Companies can make withdrawals from the reserve to smooth out ripples in their supply and production schedules so that they don't have to reduce operations, or even shutter, a refinery. Shuttering a refinery is bad juju, because it can take weeks to get one fully operational again.

Those withdrawals are then "paid back" to the reserve from shipments.

If things keep going the way they are, I'll probably have oodles of time.

My commute is a whopping 5 minutes from the new house I bought last June.

And of course, it was all on the Bakken Shale boom, which was supposed to be "temporarily" deflated by the Saudis.

And it looks like the bottom is falling out of the market.  Gas around here is down to $1.48- $1.52.  Over the border in Indiana it's $1.42.    There used to be a $.30-$.60 a gallon difference between the two states...

Oil was at $33/barrel and falling according to the news on the ride in this morning.


Doing some cyphering, if they could get 55gallons of gas from a barrel of oil, that's a cost of $.60/gal, figure refining, transport and taxes and "BIG OIL !!!" is making jack squat these days...

There is a convenience store chain, Quik Trip that has a promotion with the local grocery store chain that for every so many dollars you spend at the grocery store your get cents off a gallon of gas, up to 20 gallons.

There is no limit as far as I know as to the number of points you can accumulate, but once you swipe the card you lose the points and have to start over.

My daughter works at one of the grocery stores and she gets a 10% discount at the store and her purchases counts to for points.  So we win both ways.  =D

Giant Food in Washington, DC, metro has the same kind of rewards program with Shell, I think. I don't take advantage of it nearly as much as I should, but most of the Shell stations around me are a pain in the butt to get to and their prices are higher than most of the other stations.

The Safeway near me has its own fuel plaza, and you get rewards for shopping there that can be used at the fuel plaza, but I hate shopping at Safeway, so I rarely do unless I need something specific.

I'm not well versed on things like this, but can the Emperor do that without going through Congress?   Given what has happened the last 7 years, doesn't mean I don't think he won't try to.

I know he can't change the tariff rates, those are setup by Congress and petroleum products are too well defined in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule for Obama to start calling Oil "Elephant tusks" or some other such thing to get it bumped into a higher tariff category.

But can he use the EPA or perhaps some other minor agency to do to oil what he's doing to coal?

I really didn't expect that we would see that kind of price again in my lifetime.

Also this morning I passed the local independent cash-only station, where the price had dropped to $1.639. I stopped at one of my regular stations and topped my tank for $1.759.

Saw one analyst report yesterday that posited that gasoline will remain below $2 national average at least into 2017.

Iran and Saudi's are talking about playing nice, hence the rise.

However, it's doubtful it will rise too much.   Everyone is pumping as much as they can to make money.  Russia, to prop up the ruble, American drillers are pumping just to cover their debt service, Iran needs cash to build infrastructure, and Venezuela is a basket case.

Prices will probably stay low for the foreseeable future...

Post by: Mike Irwin on February 17, 2016, 05:21:48 AM
That's the big if. The Iranians have already said that they're not giving up any attempt to capture market share, which is a pretty good indication that they're not going to be onboard with this any time soon and they're going to pump like hell.

And, the Russian-Saudi-Quatari-Venezuelan agreement was to keep pumping at January levels, which are just a skosh below record production territory, which is going to tend to keep the glut, well, glutty.

Then there's also the fact that coming out of February and overall oil demand drops pretty hard for two to three months until the start of the summer driving season.

Finally, Venezuela is in such desperate financial straits right now that their only true option is to pump as much oil as they can, even if it means the per-barrel price continues to go down, and they know that they're screwed on that front, too, because their production has been plummeting.

They're facing the perfect *expletive deleted*it storm that could literally drive them to collapse, all because everyone knows that the Socialist cronies of the president can do a MUCH better job at running an oil company than can those bourgeoisie capitalist pig "experts!" And maintenance money? Screw that, you don't need to maintain this stuff! Give it to the people in the form of more free *expletive deleted*it!

Went by my favorite station at about 1:30 this afternoon on the way to a meeting at work.  The price was $1.59.  Passed by again on the way home at about 3:15 PM and it had jumped to $1.74.  Immediately went and filled up across the street where it was still $1.61.
No idea if this is a temporary bump or a permanent trend upward.  Most likely a refinery went into a meltdown or something.

RBOB has gone from 0.92 to 1.07 over the last week or so.  It's the refineries switching from the more expensive winter blends to the more expensive summer blends.  Or they are shutting down for maintenance.  Or someone accidentally spilled some gas at the local ARCO station.  Who knows?

Oil and gasoline futures have been on a frigging rocket the last week or so. Lots of freaking investor chimps who have taken a pummeling in the futures markets the last year or so just hoping beyond hope that oil producers are going to start setting production limits at the meeting coming up Sunday.

But none of them are taking into account Iran, which has categorically stated that they're going to do everything they can to pump their wells to capacity, and if anyone else surrenders market share by adopting quotas, they're going to grab it.

Production ceiling talks in Dhoa collapsed this afternoon after Saudi Arabia refused to agree to any deal that didn't include Iran.

Iran wasn't at the meeting, and has categorically stated they intend to pump as much crude as they can to capture market share after sanctions were lifted earlier this year.

This could get really sporty in the futures markets over the next couple of days...

I don't understand this at all.

There's not even a hint of an oil output deal being finalized after it collapsed yesterday, there's no strong indications that oil usage is going to go up any time soon, and Iran is planning on pumping as much as they can, and the monkey brained aholes who do futures trading are trying their damndest to erase the losses in overnight trading.

There's simply no fundamental support for it. Oil should have continued its drop, and yet it's stabilizing.

And some issues in Nigeria and Canada that are dropping their respective outputs for a while.  I think all are contributing.
Kuwait's output is supposedly down by a third or more.  I say "supposedly" because their oil folks are claiming otherwise.  The accuracy of the information is questionable.

We're back down below $2 a gallon.  $1.99 at my usual station as of yesterday, but the Exxon across the street has dropped to $1.99 also.  That usually presages another drop at my usual place.
Saw $1.94 over in Newton last night when I went for dinner before work.

Prices have been slowly sliding the last couple of weeks in my area. Yesterday the Citgo near my house went from $2.11 to $2.05. The stations in Arlington that I talk about regularly have also dropped, but are in the $2.09-$2.11 range still. I figure it will be a couple of days before they drop, as well.

The crude and gasoline futures are taking a complete pummeling this afternoon.

$2.16 here in W.

I don't understand gasoline pricing at all.

The lowest price I've seen in the last week or ten days in my usual area of operations is $2.04, at a station that sells name-brand gas and is one of a regional chain of convenience stores. Today I went by another outlet of the same chain, about 15 miles north, and their price was $2.26.

Tuesday, I went to a meeting upstate, about 25 miles from home as the crow flies. Entering town from the west, I went by four or five stations that were all at $1.98. I stopped and filled up at one that's a regional brand name. On the other side of the same town, not more than three miles away, another station of the same brand was at $2.06.

I was in Pennsylvania this past weekend. Prices along the way ranged from $2.13 to $2.29 in Mom's town.

Yesterday I saw $1.99 at one station in Arlington, VA, in the afternoon. By the time I drove past again yesterday evening, the price had gone up 6 cents.

All of this is a response to the recent run up in oil prices caused by the panicky f*expletive deleted*tards stampeeding to buy oil when Saudi Arabia said "well, maybe a setting some controls would be a good thing..."

Of course, those buttmunches are totally ignoring Iran, which has repeatedly said "Go ahead, you infidel-loving pig mongers! Freeze your production and we'll waltz in and take over your market share!"

And, now, all of a sudden there's some REALLY ominous supply news coming out of China, the peak gasoline/oil usage season in America ends in a few weeks, more American rigs are reopening, and all those monkey *expletive deleted*ers are going "OMG! I was a fool! Why don't these buildings have windows that open so I can leap to my shameful death?"

I don't recall if we've brought it up before in this thread, but when people are posting prices for regular, are we assuming 87 octane unless someone specifically states 85? Until I take trips out of state, I always forget that you can get 85 as regular in a lot of places, and 87 is mid-grade in those states.

87 with 10% ethanol is the gasoline I have been giving a price for. 87 sans the ethanol is about .30 more per gallon.

We used to have 87 sans E, 89 with 10% E and 90-92 with or without E. A few years ago, they said the 89 10E was too expensive to mix 87 + 10% E, so they went to 85 base and added 10% to bring it up to 87. 89, 90 and 92 octane went away, now we have 91 and it varies from station to station is it is pure gas or 10% E.



Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?

In CA we have 87 (up to 10% ethanol),89,91 (or maybe 92?). Don't know if we have any other octanes in BFE locations. Those are what I normally see off the highways, etc.  I know there are E85 stations around, but I don't think that many. I remember back at work the enviros always wanted to use E85 but there were never any stations near the office.

In Idaho a lot of pumps have four gasoline grades: 85,87,89,91 (or maybe 92, I can never remember the top in these parts).

I used to use 85 in the Trooper when on road trips and it ran fine. I haven't tried it in the 4Runner, and the new truck with the turbos has an 87 minimum.

But back to my original point, depending on the octane and composition of the regional "regular", I reckon that's going to affect a lot of our comparisons here.

There is some really weird stuff going on with gasoline prices here in Northern Virginia.

The station near me is currently sitting at $2.14. It's been bouncing around like mad the past few weeks, but has been trending upward.

The one station near CastleKey where I'll get gas was at $2.15 a week ago, and is now at $2.03.

Oil prices have been bouncing around lately -- they shot up last week when Saudi Arabia and Russia started getting all huggy and kissy and started talking about production limits...

Of course the monkey brained aholes who trade crude started pissing their pants that "OMG! OIL'S GOING TO GO UP AND UP AND UP AND NEVER COME BACK DOWN AGAIN!!!" and drove the price up accordingly.

Then reality set in, nothing came out of the OPEC meetings or the Borscht-Sand Dune confederation, and prices have been pulling back.

The station near me is currently sitting at $2.14. It's been bouncing around like mad the past few weeks, but has been trending upward.

The one station near CastleKey where I'll get gas was at $2.15 a week ago, and is now at $2.03.

Oil prices have been bouncing around lately -- they shot up last week when Saudi Arabia and Russia started getting all huggy and kissy and started talking about production limits...

Of course the monkey brained aholes who trade crude started pissing their pants that "OMG! OIL'S GOING TO GO UP AND UP AND UP AND NEVER COME BACK DOWN AGAIN!!!" and drove the price up accordingly.

Then reality set in, nothing came out of the OPEC meetings or the Borscht-Sand Dune confederation, and prices have been pulling back.

Also 3 more billion barrels of crude was discovered in Texas.

But that was offset by some dork in Nebraska accidentally spilling a quart of oil in his driveway.

I wonder how oil prices are going to be affected by the guy who blew his engine and coated my Subaru with a fine oily mist this morning?

Meanwhile I paid $2.09 because I needed a car wash anyway and that "saved" me $.20/gallon

There are reports of stations in the area running out of gas.  The latest news story I read today says the pipeline is still weeks away from being operational.

Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: lupinus on September 18, 2016, 06:15:30 AM
Still 2.09 this morning when I ran to the store. Station that ran out yesterday was still out when I passed it on the way to the store. Was getting a delivery when I passed it about fifteen minutes later on the way home.

Looks like any outages should be temporary and most if not all of the effected states have waived driving hours rules for delivery trucks, which should make getting gas trucked in a bit easier and more reliable.

We've assumed no reason to panic, but fill it up at a half tank or top off when reasonable and we see a good price protocols. I fully expect if stations running out of gas becomes a little bigger problem, that there will be more issues with idiots swarming a station every time they see a tanker making a delivery than actual problems caused by the disruption in the pipeline itself.

Gas prices here have been odd, the past week. Most stations are at ~2.12. There's just a few that are at ~1.96 (and a whole bunch that are at 1.75, down south of town). There's two gas stations on either side of the road from each other, and they've been at 2.12 and 1.96 for a week.

The two gas stations I pass by daily (Brookshires (grocery) & Murphy) usually have the same prices.  Prices at both have been jumping around the last week - up to $2.05, next morning down to $1.95, next morning back to $2.04 and again back down to $1.94.  Today it was back up to $2.07. 

Of course I needed gas on the day it was at $2.05.

Colonial pipeline workers managed to blow up their pipeline yesterday in central Alabama.  This time it was about a mile from where the same pipeline broke in September, driving gas prices much higher in the SE.
Seven workers were injured, hopefully not too seriously, but there is no word on their conditions.  Homes were evacuated up to three miles from the site of the explosion.
Prices still haven't recovered to their original levels from the last time that pipeline went down.

In general, we always seem to be 20-30 cents higher than the next highest state. In fact looking at gasbuddy, I'm even seeing Chevron and Shell prices about fifty miles East of me down to $2.10.

Boy have I seen a HUGE variance in prices in Northern Virginia the last couple of days....

Right now the Citgo near my house is $2.07.

The Sunoco, Shell, Libery, and BP near CastleKey's house are in the $2.11-$2.15 range.

The Exxon I've mentioned a number of times, the one near where I shop, is at $2.59.

But the winner of the "Are you out of your *expletive deleted*ing mind" price is the Exxon station on Dolly Madison Boulevard in McLean, Virginia, near the entrance to the CIA campus and the George Washington Parkway. It's the only station for several miles, so they think the have a captive audience, I guess...

They want $3.19 a gallon for regular unleaded, and $3.69 a gallon for premium. Those are both, by far, the highest prices in the entire Commonwealth. My guess is that they have the concession to fuel the CIA fleet, so they are taking advantage of it.

On my way back yesterday I paid $2.29 a gallon. Once you get out of Mom's county the price drops by over 10 cents a gallon, or more, depending on where you are. Never understood that.

Perhaps that county has a gas tax?

OARP took a big hit last week, and today it's trying to recover everything it lost.

On the plus side, the price at my local station dropped a dime today, to $1.99 a gallon.

Gas jumped 18 cents this area today.  Granted it's a little early, but I wonder if it is in response to the rise in oil prices and the OPEC production cuts.

Gas prices in the KC area seem to be running $1.89 - $1.99 a gallon depending on which side of the state line you are on.

Missouri having the cheaper prices due to less taxes.

OPEC reached an agreement today to start cutting production in an effort to bring the glut down.

Oil, gas, and heating oil futures went through the roof.

I like this article!

https://www.yahoo.com/news/oil-price-rally-likely-short-lived-opec-deal-102013182--finance.html?ref=gs

Essentially it says that the price spike is not going to last because the cuts that OPEC enacted, if they are followed to the letter, aren't enough to end the glut AND it's likely that the price rise will, in the short term, lead to reactiviation of US wells that had been shuttered due to low prices.

Prices had been slowly dropping around here. Wednesday I filled up at one of the two lowest price stations in my area of operation. Today (Friday) at 06:30 a.m. the price at one was up 4 cents since Wednesday evening. I'm sure that's due to the OPEC announcement, but it's obviously an artificial bump because the oil that will really be subject to the higher OPEC prices is still in the ground.

I don't get why people expect the oil/gas already purchased to remain at the lower price. If the commodity is worth more, it's worth more, right? What does it matter if it was worth less before? What's artificial about the price increase?

Only that when the price of oil drops, the price of gas already in the pipeline does not fall immediately.  The hysteresis only works in one direction.

Exactly. It's the old addage of up like a rocket, down like a feather.

The retail gasoline market has very thin margins.

When the price goes up, companies are quick to raise the price because they make more on the gasoline that's on hand.

When the price goes down, they don't want to drop the price quickly because then they'd be upside down on the gas that they have on hand.

It's not uncommon at all to see the price drop right after a tanker finishes filling the in ground tanks.

I paid $2.79 for super in Jersey last night. The biggest spike I've seen was when they bumped the gas tax about a month ago. It was presented as a 23 cent hike everywhere from Christie's mouth, to every media outlet I saw. It was however written as a percentage, so it was only 23 cents when gas was $2. As bad as that bump was, when they switched to winter gas last week I immediately lost 40 miles per tank.

Heard on the radio the other day that prices will likely start heading back up soon as we switch from the more costly winter blends to the more costly summer blends of gasoline.  I am still not sure how that works.

"as we switch from the more costly winter blends to the more costly summer blends of gasoline.  I am still not sure how that works."

PROFIT!

Yeah, that's a running joke.

The problem is that refineries are going to be shutting down for spring maintenance starting very soon. But that coincides with the rise in demand because people start driving a lot more as it heads toward spring.

The combination of the two generally sends prices up. So it's not a more expensive spring blend (the winter formulations are more expensive because they're oxygenated, IIRC), it's just a supply/demand capitalism kind of thing.

Prices have been bouncing around like crazy.   One day the BP I go past is $2.39, the next day it's $2.25.   It's like playing a roulette wheel, when it's time to buy gas.

Then I go past the Shell station about a half mile, in the same town and the their prices are the exact opposite. 

But I do have gas discount cards for both that gets me anywhere from $.03 to $.10 off per gallon.

Just up the road in Comanche, there's a Mobil two blocks from a Valero, and the Valero never fails to be at least ten cents cheaper.  At this point, I'm thinking the Mobil must be a front for something, because nobody buys anything from it but they're still paying to have someone at the counter anyway.

Ha ha. You forget it's pinko central. High local gas taxes. There's a few processing plants, but they don't make gasoline. It's all first stage oil processing and natgas.

But yeah, otherwise what you said usually holds. Gas is cheaper in Bakersfield for sure (not sure they're cheap enough to live there  =D ). Places like up through the 395 corridor above Bishop it gets crazy because those are some long hauls. I just looked at Gasbuddy and it's $3.50 in Mammoth and $3.99 in Bridgeport.

Gas prices have been holding fairly steady here in Virginia. There's been a slight downward movement at some stations, slight upwards at others.

The big news is that OPEC's attempts to whittle away at the surplus is looking more and more like it's a failure. US stockpiles, as reported yesterday, were at their highest level since the 1980s, and crude, gas, and heating oil futures paid big time. WTI was down over 5%. The downward swing is continuing today.

Another critical factor is that it's now appearing that US shale oil production is becoming financially viable in the $50 a barrel range now that all of the low volume, high cost producers have been weeded out and their assets and fields sold to the more economical large-scale producers.

You have to wonder if there's some middle east OPEC oil sheik just crying his eyes out, knowing that the middle east stranglehold on oil prices is close to being broken for good.

Paid $2.34 here yesterday.   I catch snippets on the radio of Oil being in the $53 a barrel range.

And Mike is right.  The US oil industry is consolidating as the high-cost inefficient producers have either been bought outright or the assets sold via bankruptcy to lower cost producers.

With DAPL and Keystone moving ahead, along with the prospect of a Trump administration literally open the floodgates to production in areas previously off limits, the price of oil will probably stabilize if not drop a bit as more production makes it to market.

I'm looking forward to a return to "Free Collectors Glass with every fill-up" days...  ;)

Thanks to gov Moonbeam, we in CA will soon be paying an extra 12 cents in base gas tax with an additional "variable" 17 cents. Also around an average of $100 more on annual vehicle registration. All ostensibly to fix the roads even though they refuse to guarantee the money won't go into the general fund (where it will likely be used to help pay for the damn train and bail out the state employee retirement fund).

I'm glad I sold my diesel last year because that's going up 20 cents. Electric cars will pay $100 per year to use the roads (which actually, it's about time they paid something).

Here in Virginia I think it's about $50 a year.

CA is probably one of the highest states in the country. It's a progressive (or maybe regressive?) tax. Both my vehicles cost in the mid $30Ks new and first year registration was around $350 on the 4Runner and $450 on the truck (commercial registration). It goes down from there every year to some base (which I don't remember, but it's not cheap either). I paid $279 for the 2014 4Runner this year. Guess it'll be around $350 next year, back to where I started. The new "additional fee" is based on the value of the vehicle and runs from I think $25 - $175.

CA is probably one of the highest states in the country. It's a progressive (or maybe regressive?) tax.

Seems like it would make a lot more sense to go by weight, with possibly some extra fee over a certain horsepower, since those are the factors that determine its actual wear on the roads.  Of course, that would have a lot of motorcycles paying under $10/year, (and would put an instant BS flag on any bicycle registration scheme, because under $1/year would obviously not cover even the paperwork printing costs) so we can't have that.

New, newer or older?

Registration is pretty much the same no matter what you have (as long as it's a passenger car). Right now it's about $40 a year.

Motorcycles are just under $30 a year.


Where they get us is the annual personal property tax (cars, boats, motor homes, etc.).

That varies from county to county, and is based on a set fee per $100 value of the car that year. The county where I live sets the rate at $4.75 per $100 assessed value. Fortunately, some years ago we got car tax relief, which cut the amount we pay back considerably.

In Michigan, on Jan. 1, The Stupid Party, which is in charge of the legislature and governors office, added about a 30% bump to license plates, so I'll be paying nearly $40.00 MORE per year for each of my 2 vehicles.  Plus they increased the gas tax by about a dime a gallon.  Here's the rub.  We voters turned down a ballot proposal a year ago by a 75% margin for that exact plan.  Part of the reason was that the legislature and governor would not guarantee that 100% of that increase in taxes and fees would go into road repair exclusively, which is obviously necessary.  They wanted to divert about half of the money into horse trails, hiking trails, bicycle paths inter alia.  Duh.

Give you 3 guesses what they are doing now with this increase that we said a resounding NO to.  About half of the increase in going to road repairs. The other half is going into the general fund and now they are whining that they are a couple billion dollars short of road repair money.  I'm not a violent person but beatings, whippings, being put in stocks and having garbage thrown at them and then being tarred, feathered and carried down to the local river and chucked in sounds pretty good to me right now.

Passenger car registration is $101 (plus $2 "convenience fee") for the renewal sticker.  $196 if it's a plate for a new vehicle.

Looks like we are higher here in SC. Gas tax is lower (more on that in a minute) but personal property taxes/registration...I paid $660 for my truck ($32k purchase) for the first year. Back when I got my last truck, it was already 9 years old but still $280 for the first year and then would only a little each year till it finally dropped off the "rape the owner in the ass" age and dropped down to $75ish the last year I had it on the road. Next year my truck is supposed to drop down to around $400 but then I get to pay an additional $60 since I moved into a small town...

Raising the gas tax is exactly what they want to do here too. The politicians and their supporters claim that it will "collect more revenue from the tourists" and they also claim the roads are in such dire shape so as to be the worst in the nation. And if you dare object to paying more then it becomes "WELL WHY DO YOU HATE GOOD ROADS???" and so on. Of course not only do the politicians want to give more money to the black hole that is our state DOT, they want to get their hands on that revenue stream for all their pet bullshit projects.


If they actually needed more money to fix the roads, I am not opposed to giving them some more ONCE THEY SHOW SOME RESULTS WITH WHAT THEY GET. Use what they get already up, THEN we can talk about additional fund raising...that MUST be spent on roads. Until them I am not voting to raise taxes in exchange for vague promises.

Illinois has the worst roads.  The roads in SC remind me of the roads of Germany, they are very well maintained and pothole free.


One thing we did that infuriated TPTB is pass a constitutional amendment last November that requires that all monies collected "for Roads" (Bonds, gas taxes, etc) can only be spent on roads.  There has to be a separate fund (they money can't go into the General Fund and squandered).  So their hands are tied.


When you want to bitch about paying $310 for tags, it's $103 here no matter the age of the vehicle.  http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/vehicles/basicfees.html

Where we get nailed in on sales tax (10% in Cook County, 8-9% in the collar counties), and property tax.  My 3Bdrm, 2Bath ranch on .28 is $6,000 a year.  And that's AFTER the Disabled Veteran's and Homestead discounts.  A quick search of the Milton Township assessor's website shows that my neighbors, all will fairly similar sized homes, are paying anywhere from $7,500 to $10.2k in property taxes alone.

We do have a flat 3% income tax, but TPTB want a "Grand Bargain" to raise the income tax (either to 4 or back to 5%) while they "freeze" the property tax (rates), which for those of us paying attention is a pig in poke.  Yes, the rates for each taxing body are frozen, but we'll keep raising the assessed value of your home to squeeze you for more money.

Back in January 2011 they pushed through a record temporary income tax  increase that raised the income tax rate on individuals to 5 percent from 3 percent, and on corporations to 7 percent from 4.8 percent.  They promised that they would use the extra money to pay down the debt.  The debt was around $50billion in 2011, the increase expired in 2015 and the state  is now $154billion in debt.  https://www.illinoispolicy.org/policy-points/illinois-31-6-billion-tax-hike-where-did-the-money-go/

The only reason the tax increase expired is because Pat Quinn lost the election for governor.  Had he won, he would have been dumb enough to sign legislation making it permeant.  Then Speaker Madigan could pin it on Quinn and call it the "Quinn tax increase",  However, Republican Bruce Rauner won.  He would veto any increase, and even though Madigan and Senate President Cullerton had Super Majorities in both houses, if they overrode the Governor's veto, they would then won the increase and the D's would get killed in the next election.

But they are back at it, trying to raise the rate once again, in this "Grand Bargain" they are trying to hammer out.  Meanwhile, we haven't had a budget in going on 3 years.  Madigan is trying to paint it as Rauner doing this, but under our Constitution the House creates the budget.   THe Governor can only make recommendations.  But the Governor does have the line item veto, so that's the main reason Madigan won't send him a budget.  Because Rauner has pledged to cut the pork and waste, and Madigan would have to override and then explain why spending $12 million on studying cow farts and other such bushwah is a priority.

Meanwhile life goes on with no budget.   http://www.mystateline.com/news/illinois-state-legislators-sue-to-get-paid-their-salaries/614842886

Wow. I would have never guessed SC having registrations that high.

I would theoretically not have much of a problem paying gas taxes or registration fees for transportation infrastructure, but whether local, state, or federal, it never happens. You can never get the politicians to guarantee that they will only use road taxes for roads, nor would you ever get them to reduce taxes if they build a surplus. Further, you can never get them to show how 100% of previous infrastructure taxes were used for infrastructure. Mostly because they weren't. Between bloated administration and bait and switch on the money, I would guess only 25% or so of the tax money collected for roads goes to roads.

I was in Pennsylvania over the weekend.

Prices ranged from $2.55 to $2.69 a gallon for regular unleaded.

It used to be that Pennsylvania and Virginia had virtually identical gasoline prices.

Then Pennsylvania started electing a series of communist dicks to the Gub's mansion who started ramming through moar taxes on gasoline because, well, it's a good thing! Believe me, I'm from the gubmint and I'm here to help you!


I think the latest several rounds of Democratic tax increases goes a long way towards explaining why Trump won Pennsylvania.

Prices are starting to drop again.

Crude oil and gasoline futures prices have been dropping fairly steadily, but slowly, but and today are getting absolutely hammered on news that US production is up, the OPEC cuts are ineffective, and China is looking as if it's moving into a government regulated slow-down.

Prices peaked about 2 weeks ago at the Citgo near my house at $2.35.

Since then they've fallen back to $2.25 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Some analysts are now saying that OPEC's only hopes are to extend their production cuts pretty much indefinitely, make even deeper cuts, or a combination of the two, while other analysts are still saying that the market will balance out and the glut will ease by end of the year.

Then there are there contrarians who are saying that OPEC is screwed no matter what, because there's more than enough free capacity in the American market to counteract pretty much any move OPEC makes.

3 minutes from the Sheetz are two gas stations that are right off the interstate. $2.29 at them.

I'm amazed that they can make money. It can't be local business, given people can drive 3 minutes in any direction to find a cheaper gas station and I wouldn't think there were that many travelers to make the extra 30ó profit per gallon worthwhile.

Oh hell, that's nothing.

There's an Exxon Station here in Northern Virginia. It's outside the smallish town proper, near the CIA headquarters, near the entrance to the George Washington Parkway, and the last gas station before you cross the Potomac and the only gas station in sight.

OK, given all that you know it will carry a premium.

The stations in the small town proper, less than 2 miles away, run $2.19 to $2.30 for regular.

This little Exxon?

Unleaded regular is THREE NINETEEN a *expletive deleted*ing gallon.

I've heard it said, but have never seen it confirmed, that that station is, far and away, the most expensive station in Virginia.

You must be wrong. They don't price gasoline "wrong" nowadays, not for long. Gasoline pricing is very sophisticated. I would say if the price is 0.30 higher in that location...then the price really is 0.30 higher.

Apparently that info hasn't hit stations around here, gas is up 50 cents over the last month... Boomhauer, my parents moved to Anderson in December and were a bit shocked by the registration costs for their cars. I had to remind them that their property taxes were less then 10% of what they were in NJ, and on a bigger house at that. Plus, next year once they qualify for the senior exemption, they'll be around 5% of what they paid up north. At least you guys get an offset.

Prices seem to have stabilized in Northern Virginia in the $2.20 to $2.40 range, depending on where you are.

Oil and related products are taking a huge beating today, though, with WTI falling below $45 a barrel.

Looks like all of Saudi Arabia/Russia/OPEC efforts to cut production and bring the price of oil up to the $60 a barrel level are generally failing, as it's just giving American producers a re-entry level.

And this is my sad face for OPEC...  :rofl:

Looks like prices may continue downward for a while.  Apparently Libya and Nigeria have managed to re-start production, adding a total of 500,000 barrels a day to global (specifically Atlantic) output.  China is buying less than what they have in the past.   And there's a large tanker filled with crude floating off the west coast of Africa looking for a place to off-load.  Which is a sign that the glut is nowhere near ending.

Here's a pretty neat website that will make you weep with jealousy or catatonic with shock at the average price of gasoline around the world.

This view should show US dollars per US gallon, but you might need to mess with the settings... http://www.globalpetrolprices.com/gasoline_prices/

I think the only thing that's keeping pump prices up right now is the impending 4th of July holiday. Expectations are for a HUGE driving holiday this year.

I just have a hunch that if OARP doesn't skyrocket this coming week we're going to see a big drop off in pump prices right after the holiday.

Somewhat related, last time I drove to Ohio I got 26mpg. I filled up with E85 as an experiment and got only 21mpg. That actually required me to stop for gas one extra time so I wasn't thrilled. I have seen E85 as cheap as $1.6x out in the country but only slightly cheaper in town where I presume they gouge for the green cred. Either way I don't think I'll be running it.

I get that, but since it's a global commodity we can (and do import less, we used to import over 20% of our oil from Commiezuela.)  And since it's a global commodity, we can import from other sources and/or produce more of our own.  And once DAPL is on-line, the through put from the Dakota's will increase, as it'll be no longer rail car capacity dependent.

Prepare for a spike in gas prices.

Gulf coast refineries are shutting down production because of Harvey.

Gasoline futures have been rising most of the week.

This afternoon one station I pass regularly had jumped a dime.

Yesterday my local Citgo was $2.25, this morning around 5:30 when I stopped it was down to $2.21; this afternoon when I passed it on the way home it was up to $2.26.

I think the prices are only going to get worse until they get the refineries along the gulf coast back in operation. As long as there's no major damage it shouldn't be too long of a spike, especially with the end of the driving season coming.

Funny thing is, the prices will drop quick once the refineries are back (although that may be awhile).   On the radio this morning is that crude prices are dropping because the refineries are off line.   So there's a bottleneck now in the market.  Producers have no place to sell/send the crude, expect to see more ULCC's and VLCC's swinging at anchor. 


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Mike Irwin on August 29, 2017, 06:22:06 AM
Yep.

Ultimately, that is going to keep gasoline prices in check, because something like 70% of the cost of a gallon of gasoline is the cost of the crude oil.

And, it will be a triple whammy for gasoline prices, really...

Post Labor Day, refineries coming back on line, and the crude overabundance of crude isn't going down nearly as much or as quickly as OPEC had hoped.

And, possibly a fourth whammy in there... It's looking like compliance with OPEC's pumping freeze is at 75% and falling.

We've gone up at least 45 cents since two days before Harvey made landfall.  The biggest parts of the increase was just in the last three days.
Several more refineries in Texas announced they were shutting down today due to more flooding, including the two biggest players.
I expect gas will be north of $4 a gallon in this area before it starts heading back down.

Get ready for even more and faster hikes, it looks like.

Futures are already up another 6% this morning, and there's no indication that it's going to be stopping any time soon.

Wholesale prices are up over 40 cents a gallon in about a week and a half. Some are predicting by the time this all shakes out wholesale prices will be in the $2.25 to $2.50 range, and average US pump prices will be topping $3 a gallon.

I still have 3/4 tank of gas.  I think there are stations that have gas now.  Also, our company had a Hurricane prep action of getting a portable gas tank and diesel tank delivered and filled prior to landfall.  Those are available for employees. 

It will be interesting to see how fast everyone gets started up.  If the plants didn't get flooded, they can restart more quickly.  If they got equipment or motors submerged, those will take some time to get back running.  I wonder how many maintenance and motor shops got flooded.  Motiva in Port Arthur is one of the large refineries and they shut down pretty abruptly when Harvey made landfall over there.

And at 07:30 this morning it was at $2.46.

At this point the stations are just gouging. The gas in the ground, in the delivery trucks, and in the tank farms waiting to be trucked to the stations has all been there since well before Harvey and before the refineries shut down. It didn't cost 13 cents per gallon more for the gas they're selling this morning than it did for the gas they were selling yesterday morning.

"At this point the stations are just gouging."

You give the stations far too much credit for being able to set their own prices.

Most often they can't, or they only have a penny or two's ability to vary the price based on the price it's charged by the wholesale supplier.

Independent stations have the most flexibility to set their own prices (naturally), while those tied to a large national refiner/distributor network (Shell, Exxon) have the least flexibility and often receive the price they're going to charge at a given time from a regional office.

And, fluctuating prices for a market traded commodity is a hallmark of a capitalist market driven economy.



Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Scout26 on August 31, 2017, 09:53:44 AM
True, but gas is becoming scarce.  Which means the price will rise.  Basic economics.  Supply and demand.   So that gas that is in the ground, in the trucks in the tank farms is mostly all there is.  No more is coming to them via pipelines, because there's no more (or a lot less) being produced.   The rising price will encourage them to get back on line faster.

Remember during the Ammo Panic.  You could take ammo that you had paid $X for to a Gun Show (or On-line) an sell it for (many) multiples of $X.  Same with retail stores, as supply remained stagnant, but demand skyrocketed, prices got stupid crazy.

Economics.

You're right, I did write "the stations," and I should have left it more open-ended. Someone is gouging when the price of any product that has already been manufactured and is already far down the distribution chain suddenly jumps in price.

On the other hand:

I don't think the station I was driving by had one delivery between 08:00 and 10:00 yesterday, another delivery between 10:00 and 2:00, and yet another delivery between 2:00 p.m. yesterday and 07:30 this morning. It's a busy station, but it's not three deliveries within 24 hours busy.

Agreed.

But that still says absolutely nothing about the station's management/ownership structure.

Are they part of a regional group, a small independent, a national franchise?

Were the prices going up out of synch with other stations in the area?

For example, during the 9-11 attacks there were verified reports of gas stations around the country suddenly raising prices by as much as 5 DOLLARS a gallon. IIRC, for the most part every one of those instances was an individual manager seeing the news and trying to capitalize, and virtually none of them were part of a distributor plot.

That's gouging.


What you're seeing?

You're seeing an interesting little exercise called (IIRC) Capitalized Replacement Price.

Sure, the gasoline in the ground has been paid for, but with wholesale prices rising by 10 cents a gallon or more a day, and when your profit margin on a gallon of gasoline is often less than 1% per gallon, you need to think about whether you can actually afford to replace the gasoline that's now in the ground.

That's why you're seeing prices rise.


In short, I guess boils down to this...


Everyone things capitalism is wonderful.

Until capitalism actually starts acting like capitalism acts.

Then they all become screaming market interventionist commies.

It's becoming scarce in San Antonio for the time being which is a bit troubling. My work truck and my wife's car are both topped off, but depending on my schedule, I could burn through a tank of gas or two in a day easily.

Here (between Dallas & Tyler TX) the local Murphy was $2.19 at 1000hrs.  Two hours later I went outside for a break, the price was still at $2.19.  As I was getting ready to exit the truck 15 min. later the price jumped to $2.25, before I was able to shut the door it was $2.35 - with long lines.

Seems as if someone had started a rumor about a gasoline shortage, due to the refineries down south being shut down, and there were higher prices and long lines all over the DFW & outlying areas.  From what I heard, the problem with that rumor (beside the chaos caused) is that the gasoline in this area comes from Oklahoma.

Today starts a new options contract period, and prices are backing off a bit.

Colonial says that their pipelines in Texas are going to be fully restored in a few days and the first refineries have begun the restart procedure. Still going to be a long haul as it won't be known for at least a few days how much damage there is at refineries that were in the major strike area.

But, I think the worst of the price jumps are over for the moment. We're probably going to see residual jumps in pump prices for a couple of weeks but, hopefully, by mid to late September we should see pump prices start to slip.

It'll bubble only as long as it takes the refineries in Houston to get pumping again.

This is true.  The unknown is how long it will take to get the refineries and pipelines back in shape.  Motiva, the largest refiner in the country, is refusing to predict how long it will take them to get back online.  They just don't know the condition of their plant at this point, and won't know until they can get their teams back onsite to evaluate and start repairs.  It's likely the same for all the refiners that were forced to shut down.

Another unknown is the spare parts and materials situation.  Will there be a shortage of replacement parts needed to get the plants back up and running? What kind of stockpile of day-to-day spares and SPOF parts did the various refiners maintain?  Did their spare parts stock suffer damage from the flooding? What is available off-the-shelf from distributors and manufacturers?  Manufacturing lead times and transportation issues will also play a part in how soon many of the refineries get back up and running.
Lots of unknowns to figure out in the next few weeks.

Today starts a new options contract period, and prices are backing off a bit.

Colonial says that their pipelines in Texas are going to be fully restored in a few days and the first refineries have begun the restart procedure. Still going to be a long haul as it won't be known for at least a few days how much damage there is at refineries that were in the major strike area.

But, I think the worst of the price jumps are over for the moment. We're probably going to see residual jumps in pump prices for a couple of weeks but, hopefully, by mid to late September we should see pump prices start to slip.

My $4 buck a gallon prediction may have been hasty, but gas north of $3 gallon wouldn't surprise me at the rate it's been increasing.  Most of our gas around here comes via pipeline from the gulf coast.  Prices spiked pretty good when the pipeline went down twice last year.  Once because it started leaking, and once because a heavy equipment operator damaged the line and caused an explosion.  He died in that incident if I remember correctly.

"but gas north of $3 gallon wouldn't surprise me at the rate it's been increasing."

As I said yesterday, there are those who are predicting that, especially if damage to the refineries is severe, or the re-entry to production becomes a problem.

You'll definitely see areas where it goes over $3 a gallon. Hell, there's a station in Virginia, an Exxon, where regular unleaded hasn't been below $3 a gallon in over a decade. They're the only gas station for about 3 miles in any direction and sit right before the entrance to the GW Parkway, so they're trying for the desperation gas purchase, is my guess. But that's neigh on gouging as far as I'm concerned, when your average daily spread is north of $1.20 a gallon as compared to other stations in the area.

I started this thread on 10 October 2014.

Didn't think it was that long ago...

But on that date the price for a gallon of regular at the Citgo near my house (where I tanked up this morning, was $3.15.


The high for WTI crude in 2014 was $105 and change a barrel.

When I started this thread it had dropped into the lower to mid $80s, and since the end of 2014 has consistently traded below $60 a barrel, even dropped into the high $20s for a short period.

This chart http://www.globalpetrolprices.com/gasoline_prices/  that Mike Irwin linked to awhile back says gas is only three cents per gallon in Venezuela.  Road trip!
For some reason, I doubt the gas in Venezuela meets US standards for emissions and other stuff.  I am not sure I want to put that in my truck.

I thought I read somewhere that gasoline in Venezuela comes from the US?  They ship crude to the US and Citgo sends back the refined products(s). 

Yep, 95 Octane most US would run like crap as they need at least 97-98 Octane.

Up another dime (at least) to $2.65 - $2.75 in this area, and spot shortages developing.  A cow-orker had to go through three stations on the way to work today to find one that had gas.  I ran across a station today that would only sell for cash, no debit or credit.
Bought some extra gas cans and filled them today in case spot shortages get worse next week.  We'll start topping off our vehicles after every drive until this blows over.

Crude was slightly up, and gasoline futures slight down, yesterday.

That's apparently from the news that the one pipeline company, Colonial, is saying that their pipelines weren't damaged badly and that they're getting gas flowing again as well as news that at least a couple of refineries have begun to restart operations.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: Scout26 on September 03, 2017, 09:34:11 AM
While driving around yesterday:

Waterman- $2.49
Dupage County- $2.57 seemed to be the price at the majority of stations I saw.
Elmhurst - $2.77 (I believe that was just over the Cook County line)

Prices seemed to have stabilized.  I would hope given that there are three refineries in the Chicagoland area; Exxon Mobil in Joliet, Citgo in Lemont, and BP in Whiting, IN., I would think this area wouldn't be very hard hit when it comes to shortages and huge rice increases.

Most of our gas comes via the Colonial pipeline out of Texas.  It was shut down for a period post Harvey from what I read, though it's since been cranked back up.
As a precaution Friday I increased my stock of gas in storage just in case there were still shortages this week.  I have to get to work, and my wife needs to visit her Dad twice a day to look in on him.  He has Alzheimer's.
I expect the shortages will let up later this week as more gas is shipped up this way via the pipeline.

The Citgo near my house is holding at $2.61, but I'm thinking that's going to drop a bit the next time they have fuel delivered, which judging by the patterns should be either this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

2.49. It's kind of funny as most stations were 2.49 +/- a few cents with a few outlayers upwards of 2.69.

Before Irma the gov mentioned reporting price gouging, iirc anyone over 4 bucks a gallon. Almost instantly and EVERY station seemed to settle on exactly 2.49. Even in the different sections of town where you tend to get a cluster of this price or that price.

Up a bit here. Actually a good bit because the new gas taxes went into effect 01NOV. However, that date was carefully planned by the commies because that's also the day that stations in CA can start selling the cheaper Winter blend, so the increase doesn't look as bad. IIRC, there will be another tax hike next year, and that, coupled with Summer blends, will be much more noticeable to the sheep.

My go-to gas station is at $2.93 for 87 right now. According to Gasbuddy, the average price in CA is currently $3.25.

We'd dropped to an average $2.22 around the area about three weeks ago, when it jumped 15 cents to $2.37 overnight.  It's slowly dropping again, about a penny each drop, right now hovering around $2.34.  My guess is for a bottom this go-around of $2.29.
OPEC and the IEA released conflicting forecasts for oil demand today.  The IEA expects demand to drop next year by roughly 100K barrels/day, while OPEC expects demand to increase by a similar amount.  Oil futures are down $1.28 for WTI the last I looked today.  I expect prices will recover next week with WTI back to $58 or so a barrel.
OPEC is expected to announce later this month the extension of production cuts through at least March 2018, and perhaps to the end of next year.  That should get us to around $60 or so for WTI early next year.

Up a bit here. Actually a good bit because the new gas taxes went into effect 01NOV.

Prices in my area are hovering around $3.29 a gallon.
Also, I hope everyone knows we Californians did not vote for that gas tax. It was imposed on us.
I've been reading about repeal efforts taking place. Now that's something I would vote for. They use that "But we need the money to repair the roads" excuse every year to jack up taxes on something or other.  :mad:

Hickory, NC.  Several other stations followed that jump today to $2.38-$2.39, but the ones that jumped yesterday fell back 13 cents today to $2.26.  Like you said, no market reasons for the changes.  Maybe a glitch in the pipeline, short term strike at the depot, who knows?

Two gas stations a half mile apart on US 29, on my way into work in MD this morning right off the Capital Beltway:

BP, $2.559/gal

Sunoco, $2.419/gal.  You can literally see the Sunoco up the hill from before you get to the BP.


Really, BP???

That's also really weird, because in Arlington, near where I drop Seren for doggy daycare, the Shell is $2.49, the Liberty and Sunoco are $2.39, and the BP is at $2.33.

All four are within a block of each other. The Liberty and Shell are literally next door to each other.

The independent station near my office came down from $2.79 to $2.69 yesterday. Their gas prices have always been the highest in the area, but for some reason the Springfield, Virginia, area is typically 10 to 15 cents more than other areas I travel in the state.

Gas has been crazy around here.  It goes up to 2.69, then down to 2.50, then down to 2.40's and back up to 2.69.  It's around 2.35 now.  We took a drive over toward Lake Michigan on Monday.  We went through a little town called Zeeland.  One station on the corner was. 2.29 and the one across the street was 2.72.  I've noticed that the smaller towns out in the counties have gas cheaper than in the Grand Rapids municipal area.

$1.94 for unleaded is the cheapest in my area yesterday (SE TN).  The $0.20 per gallon increase has been fairly common in my area. Seldom is it $0.01 or $0.02/gallon any more.  It is $2.17 at the station that is close to my house.  Gas tends to be higher along the main highway I live off.

Another weird price bump here.  My usual station went from $2.21 to $2.31 overnight, and has now dropped back to $2.19 two days later.
Most other stations followed suit.  And those that lead on the price increase have now dropped back to where they were previously just two days later.
A small few never increased their prices at all.  The Love's at US231 and NC10 just dropped from $2.20 to $2.16, with no interim increase.

The stations near my house has always been pretty close to others. The Citgo went from $2.39 to $2.41 the other day, while the stations in Arlington near Castle Key have all been dropping, and are now in the low $2.20s. I don't understand that one.

I was in Central Pennsylvania last weekend, and man, the communists in charge of the state's finances have really put the screws to the subjects.

Lowest price I saw was in the $2.60s, highest price I saw was $2.89, both for regular.

Pennsylvania, by a pretty wide margin, has the highest state gas taxes in the nation -- 58.2 cents a gallon, which is far higher than even California's -- and that's on top of the Federal tax, and every time you turn around the commie in chief is bitching about how the gas tax needs to go up again to pay for all the *expletive deleted*it he wants to give away for free, I guess.

And you wouldn't believe how much higher PA's diesel fuel tax is... It's insane.

I'm seriously rethinking my desire to move back to PA after I retire.

The station near my house has been considerably higher than the stations in Arlington where I drop Seren for day care. I paid $2.21 in Arlington yesterday morning. When I passed the station near my house yesterday morning it was $2.35 a gallon.

Last evening when I got home? It had gone up to $2.39.

Just not sure what's going on with gas prices, as it's NEVER been that far out of whack, and the gas in Arlington is normally more expensive.

I hadn't been paying much attention to diesel prices since I sold my diesel, but holy moly, at Costco today I saw they were selling it for $3.49. That means regular stations are likely closer to $3.60-3.70. I think for a good while before this, it was neck and neck with 87.

Gas finally crept back down to $2.27.  It went back up to the $2.39 - $2.49 range last week, depending which station you were passing.  Then again creeping back down just a few cents, as low as $2.37.  Back up to $2.49 yesterday at my "go to" station, and then it shot up to $2.64 today.  I read the sign wrong.  It's still $2.37 at my go to station.  However, across the street at the other two stations it's $2.44 and $2.45.  At the Love's down by the DC it's $2.49

It's been steadily creeping up around here.   I paid $2.72 the other day.  There are many stations that are at $2.99. mostly because they are afraid to break that $3.00 psychological barrier.

Meanwhile, Russia and OPEC agree to continue production cuts (which is killing Russia's economy as Oil exports are down and that's a big part of Russia's economy).

Holy crap. $3.15 in Southeastern Idaho.  I couldn't believe it so did some news searches. Idaho is apparently the 10th highest state right now and the highest in the Rocky Mountain region. Prices went up nearly 50 cents in the last month.

Man, I think I'm selling half of my BP today and taking profits. Three year high and I bought it for $28.60 during that mini-crash in FEB of '16. I'd consider selling it all, but it has that juicy 5% dividend. I'll buy some back if oil takes a big drop again, otherwise just hold it and see if the other half hits that high of 2007 again.

$2.95 at my go-to station, both this morning and this afternoon.

Friday (May 11), it was $2.84 when I went by at around 8:00 a.m. Went by at around 3:00 p.m. and it was $2.95, so the price jumped 11 cents in 7 hours. That's the biggest fluctuation I've seen (in either direction) for as long as I can remember.

After several months of going up, gasoline is finally going down at SOME of the stations in the area.

I paid $2.69 this morning. The Citgo near my house, though, is still stuck at $2.83, and the Exxon near where I do my shopping is still at $3.29 (ludicrous).


OPEC is meeting today to talk about expanding production limits.

So, of course, crude prices are going up today, which makes no sense because it's a given that OPEC will expand output, just not by how much.

Yep, and crude, gasoline, and heating oil futures are continuing to go up in spite of the prospect of increased supply.

And it still doesn't factor in the increasing American production.

June 21 -- My usual "go to" station was $2.979 for regular unleaded. The two no-name stations near the VA hospital were both $2.999.My [former] second choice station was $3.129. That's a Gulf station, operated by a quick stop type franchise. Curiously, I also went past another of that same franchise's stations about 20 miles north, and that one was at $2.999. I have no idea why two stations run by the same company and selling the same brand of gas would be so far apart on price.

Prices had been creeping up again around here, slowly, to where they were a few months ago -- in the $2.70s for most stations to in the $3s for the unreasonable ones.

Well, that may change somewhat suddenly.

The increasing trade war has WTI crude and gasoline futures down by over 5 percent each today, and more than a few of the analysts I'm reading think that's going to continue for a while as prospects of the trade war harming production become clearer.

Been driving a Ford  CNG Fucos  at work. What a piece of crap set up.
Only has a 200 mile range and the nearest CNG station is almost 10 miles out of my usual route in town.

That's 50 cents a gallon higher than the station near me. The reason I think they can get away with that at that station is that it's the only one along about a 5 mile stretch of major road.

Oil is over $80 a barrel, and OPEC is standing pat on production even with the upcoming loss of Iranian oil in the market.  Venezuela is a basket case and only getting worse.   Illinois probably produces more oil then VZ.

Anyway at $80 the small(er) American producers will be pumping out oil along with the shale producers.  Just what the Saudi's fear most.  The good news is that there's been a lot of consolidation so American producers don't need insanely high prices to make a profit.  Their breakpoint is around $55-$60 a barrel (or less in some cases), so the glut that OPEC is worried about come spring, may happen a bit sooner...

Brent's over $80 a barrel, but WTI, which sets the US trading standard, is $73 and change right now, so given our ramped up production, prices aren't as bad as they could be.

But, I'm expecting oil prices to stay high for the time being, unfortunately.

Two days ago (October 12), my usual #1 station was closed for alterations. The [now former] #2 was at $3.129 (which went down to $3.109 a day later). The no-name station down the hill from the VA hospital was $2.939, as was a Shell station on the same block.

By the way, this is all for E-10, regular grade. There is no ethanol-free gasoline sold at automotive pumps anywhere in my state. A few hardware stores sell it in sealed 5-gallon cans -- for around $25/can.

That's why I stated "automotive" pumps. I don't know what the marinas sell. I do know the airports will not (maybe cannot) sell to anyone except directly into an aircraft.

ALL [automotive] pump gasoline here is E-10. Your "normally E free" may be normal for your state, but it isn't "normal" everywhere.

$ 3.15/gallon yesterday at the Marysville Costco, 40 miles north of Costco. Ethanol-free gas is very hard to come by here in Washington.  There are a few listings on pure-gas.com, but last time I checked, there was only one auto pure gas supplier in the state, who gets it from a refinery in Wyoming, or something like that.  Airports and marinas will generally not sell it if it is not being pumped directly into your airplane or boat.

Hmm, Gas prices today. on Roosevelt Rd in Wheaton/Glen Ellyn.  Mobil and BP $2.65/gal.  Shell $2.63.   WTI is just below $70 and Brent is just over $80.

Interesting articles in the WSJ a few days back.  There plenty of oil, it's just in  the wrong places.  Not enough transport (both pipeline and rail) to get Canadian oil to the East.

Meanwhile, China has cut back on imports from the US.  From 350,000 bbl per day to almost zero.  Oil is not subject to Chinese tariffs.

It's been dropping here a bit the last 2 weeks.

It's still $2.75 at my local Citgo, but it's down to the low $2.60s at the stations I pass regularly in Arlington.

WTI dropped below $70 a barrel this week, so hopefully we'll see some additional reductions.

...wait, it's Friday isn't it?  Nevermind.


2.779 at Costco.  On the way there I saw E15 for 2.509, which is a good price but I don't like to put that much ethanol in the 2010.  (I do use it sometimes in the 2015 if the prices difference is that much)

$2.879 for regular at a station in the opposite direction from where I usually get gas.

Had an appointment at the VA hospital on Wednesday morning. On the way to the hospital, price at the former #1 station was $3.099. On the way home two hours later, the same station was $3.069. Prices do seem to be dropping, even while the media tell me that prices are going up because TRUMP!!!!

I've been driving around 110 mi round trip the last week, taking a couple different routes between Canton & Tyler TX.  Been seeing prices anywhere from $2.39 to $2.89 for E10, from $2.89 to $3.29 for diesel. 

We recently got a car that'll use E85, but I haven't seen any available on any of the routes.

Yes, 85% ethanol for flex fuel vehicles. My last work car was a flex fuel and since I work in agriculture I was required to only use e85 in it. It is still fairly rare to find in Iowa. I wore that car out and got issued a new one, it isn't a flex fuel, but has e10/15 label in the fuel cap. So work requires me to burn e10 or e15 depending on availability at the gas stations.

Since new flex fuel vehicles are getting harder to get, the e85 pumps may no expand as quickly as they were.

There's a lot of E85 in Minnesota.  Not sure why it's more prevalent here than in Iowa.  It's a decent source of denatured alcohol, but I haven't tried using it for shellac thinner.

Minnesota is more progressive than Iowa.

Most BP, Kwik Star and Hyvee gas have e85 here,  but not every town has those. I live in a town of 27,000 and there is only one e-85 station in the city limits. There are 8 ethanol plants within 45 miles of town and a pipeline terminal 5 miles away.

I noticed $2.59 today.  A couple weeks ago it was $3.13.  The over $3 prices don't usually last long, only a day or so.  It usually jumps from around $2.79 when it jumps over $3.  Been steadily declining over the last week.

When I was working, Obama passed some dumb ass regulation that required 75% of all fed.gov vehicle fleets to be composed of some kind of "alternative fuel" vehicles. I ended up having to order E85 vehicles from GSA to comply, even though there were no E85 stations within 1000 miles AFAIK.

It looked good for his alternative energy policies though, plus considering how many vehicles the gov buys, they were able to show an uptick in sales for flex fuel vehicles, even though probably only 5% of them actually used the "flex" fuel.

I wonder if they actually built an engine designed to run on e85 if mileage would be a lot better? There is so much loss with a gasoline engine compared to the energy value of the fuel (gasoline) used. There has to be a better way.

My experience with running 90% E-85 for 140,000 miles was lower MPG, but I had more power at the wheels. I had a 2013 Chyrsler 200 with the V6. I had close to 300hp and it loved he higher octane of E-85.

I got a buddy who builds twin turbo 4 cylinder cars, gets over 700 horsepower of then, loves e-85 to power his cars.

No apparent reason?

Well, when you realize that Pennsylvania has the HIGHEST gasoline taxes in the nation, at 58.2 cents a gallon on top of the Federal 18.4 cent per gallon tax, it becomes very apparent.

In 2014 the state gas tax was 31 cents.


Compare that to Virginia's gas tax, which is 22.4 cents per gallon.

Government at all levels has been kicking the can down the road on everything they possibly can.

We've had (collectively) the worst governance in the history of the country, running off of accumulated capital and borrowing against the future to spend as much as possible in the now.

Apparently, we're planning to screw over the succeeding generations as much as we possibly can.

Prices are continuing to slowly drop here in Northern Virginia. I paid $2.51 for regular this morning on my way to work. It's still at $2.65 at the Citgo near my house, though.


Prices should continue to move lower over the near term, I think, given that crude had its worst month in 2 years in October.  That's being primarily pushed by concerns that the trade war with China will drive economic growth lower plus Saudi Arabia's plans to pump more crude.

This past weekend I went to Mathew County, Virginia, to visit friends who just moved there.

Gas prices were between 20-30 cents cheaper per gallon over Northern Virginia. Before I left town I tanked up for $2.24 a gallon.

For God's sake...

Gas prices in Arlington, near Castle Key's old house, are on par with prices in Mathews county. I paid, IIRC, $2.27 a gallon to tank up at the BP on Saturday.

Prices in Fairfax, including the Citgo near me? $2.65.

It's amazing that less then a month ago, the WSJ column on energy prices was predicting higher oil prices due to the loss of Iranian oil, the continued decline in Venezuelan production and the Saudis hitting their ceiling of maximum production ability and now, oil prices are in free fall.

China has stopped import of US oil (IIRC 300,000 barrels per day), s we have that "glut" on the market.  In addition, the consolidation of shale and domestic producers after the previous price collapses "thinned the herd", and allowed the more efficient producers to obtain those assets.

Now we have this: http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/texas-is-about-to-create-opecs-worst-nightmare/ar-BBPWgMM?ocid=ientp

Plus when we went through southern Illinois going to and from Johnson County, I saw every pump running.  Usually they only are pumping when oil prices are high and they are shut down when prices are low.   So here we are with prices dropping and they are still pumping.  That's a real change.

Oh, and I prices I saw at the usual stations I pass on the way to work today were uniformly $2.29.  I will not be surprised if prices drop below $2.00 in the near future.

Nice.

The station near my house is now down to $2.43. Still WAY too damned expensive. I'm thinking it's a case of "rich county/town" pricing.

The Exxon near where I do my grocery shopping, which is the only station on that strip for several miles in either direction, is still sitting at $2.99 a gallon.

According to GasBuddy the lowest gas prices in Virginia is $1.77 a gallon and the average is $2.22. That's for regular.

In the last two trading days WTI, the US benchmark for crude oil, has shed almost $6 a barrel and at the moment is trading at $46.17, its lowest in a year.
Gasoline and heating oil futures are following the price of oil and both are also at near lows for the past year.

And, there's really nothing on the horizon to really turn it around.

Thought I'd revisit this...

Since the last post a couple of months ago prices topped out in the $2.79 range at the Citgo near my house and have retreated to $2.69. There are still some outlier stations, like the Exxon I've talked about, where the price is still over $3 a gallon because it's the only station for about a 4 mile stretch of busy road.

Over the past 2 months crude has drawn back, dropping almost $10 a barrel, and gasoline futures have been trading consistently lower. In mid to late April it topped out around $2.10 a gallon. Today futures are trading around $1.75 a gallon.

Even better, Bloomberg energy is now predicting that not only will prices start to slump in the coming weeks, finally catching up with falling futures, but given the softening international economy and ongoing trade issues, the IEA is expected to predict a much lower demand in 2020 than was previously expected...

$ 3.09 on last Saturday at the Marysville Costco, 40 miles north of Seattle.  That is a drop of about $ 0.15/gallon over the past two weeks.

We peaked at around $2.85 at a small number of stations in the Hickory area, though $2.69 was more the norm.  Now we're around $2.29 most places that we buy.

Also, at least if the news is to be believed, refineries in the Rockies always shutting down for one thing or another create spikes.

2.499 in town, probably 2.30 something out on the interstate. We're weird because the filling stations on the interstate have a constant gas war with each other. Town is 7 miles from I-35, so no gas war here.

Probably maintenance.  The WSJ has been reporting that the stocks of crude and especially distillates here in the US have been climbing for the past several weeks, putting pressure on storage capacity (and prices).  If they have full tanks, they can shut down until stocks deplete, and they can get some maintenance in.  

I paid $2.70 at the Pilot in Carol Stream on Monday.

We've been bouncing around between $2.95 and $2.70 for several weeks.  The nearby gas station I go to, has been price cutting everybody by at least 30-40 cents a gallon.  It was $2.77 at 3 places I drove by today and $2.48 at my station.  The other day he was $2.54 and everyone else was $2.95. 

This morning I hit it just right and got into an empty bay before 3 other guys could.  Filled up the truck and 3 gas cans for the mower.  Usually every time I drive by the 4 bays are full with at least 3 vehicles waiting behind in each bay.  I am a bit puzzled by that tactic and the owner of the station has been doing that for over a month now.  Maybe he's laundering drug money and can afford to take a big loss on gas...or the other guys are gouging.

Yeah, everytime I drive to Ontario, OR, I see it's about $0.25 more per gallon as soon as you cross the border. Though with OR, I'm not sure how much of that is enviro taxes and how much is paying for someone to pump your gas.

So I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm sure I saw that price difference over the last month at least, but going there yesterday it was only three cents higher than here.

Holy crap! I was moaning about a 10 cent a gallon jump at the Citgo near my house... It's up to $2.699.

All of the long-term predictions are that it's still a bleak outlook for oil producing nations and that we should see steadily declining prices once the Iran thing settles down.

Been awhile since we've looked at this.

Oil prices have been bouncing around quite a bit this summer and fall, but gasoline prices haven't really moved that much.

The Citgo near my house is still sitting at $2.55 a gallon. I found a Sunoco near my new office that had it at $2.34 a gallon, but after the Saudi refinery attack and price jump a few weeks ago it went up into the .$2.40s.

What really surprised me is that after the Saudi attack crude and gasoline futures prices skyrocketed. I was expecting a fast run up in gasoline prices, but that never really happened.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?
Post by: RocketMan on October 06, 2019, 02:17:48 AM
We saw a bump of ten to twenty cents after the attack on the Saudi facilities, but like in your area Mike, it took a week or better to kick in.  The bump wasn't consistent, with differing increases around the area, and some stations took quite a bit longer to raise their prices than others.
It was strange given that historically price increases due to supply disruptions have been pretty much immediate.
We reached high thirties, low forties for prices, and they have since dropped back to low thirties, high twenties pretty much everywhere.

Gas prices continue to move in very weird ways... And the price of oil has been sine waving between about $53 and $57 for a couple of weeks.

The Citgo near my house seems to be in an odd cycle of randomly changing the price between $2.39 and $2.45 a gallon. Only those two prices, nothing in between. And it seems that it will change 2 and 3 times in a single day.

The Exxon near my office, which is one of the cheapest stations I've found in my area, jumped up to $2.44 a gallon last week. This week it started out at $2.39.

Yesterday it dropped to $2.34.

Today it's $2.29.

The Sunoco a street nearer to my office?

It's been sitting resolutely at $2.59 for the past 2 weeks.

And the Exxon near my house, the one that's the only station on about a 5 mile stretch of road?

Still over $3 a gallon.

Wow, 2 months since this was last looked at, mainly because gasoline prices have been incredibly stable despite a slow rise in the price of oil.

That's turned around the last few days...

Oil has been dropping steadily over fears of the Chinese economy under the threat of Kung Flu, and heating oil and gasoline futures have been plummeting.

Still, the Citgo near my house is stuck at $2.35, but given the week's movement I don't see that holding much longer.

In the past couple of weeks, and due mainly to the fears of the Corona virus, the price of oil has dropped around $10 a barrel, and the wholesale price of gasoline has dropped by about 25 cents a gallon.

On Tuesday, FINALLY, the price of gasoline started creeping down... a whole 3 cents a gallon at the station near my house, to $2.32 a gallon. I'm still wondering WTF is going on that crude and refined gasoline can drop that much and there be virtually no movement at the pump.

Despite the general softness in the oil market the past couple of weeks fueled by Corona, gasoline, at least in my neck of the woods, has remained stubbornly sitting right in the $2.25 to $2.45 range, with one outlier station (the Exon I've talked about) still sitting at $2.99 a gallon.

Hopefully that might change in the next few days because, despite OPEC efforts to reach a broad agreement to cut 1.5 million barrels of production a day until the end of the year to prop up prices, it's being reported that the effort has failed because the Russians wouldn't agree to it.

Right now WTI is down 7.5% and flirting with dropping below $42 a barrel, and I'm seeing some short term predictions that, if OPEC doesn't reach some kind of agreement and Corona keeps spread, it could drop into the mid 30s.

Of course, that could all change in a heartbeat if OPEC and its nonmember partners reach an agreement.

Some are suggesting that this is a strategic move on the part of the Russians to help thin out some of the competition, including US oil shale. Those Ruskies wouldn't play that kind of hardball, would they?

Crude oil has fallen off a cliff over night. Saudi Arabia and Russia have both indicated their intention of conducting a price war.

WTI crude is currently sitting at 31.84, down over 20% from Friday's close.

Brent crude is down about the same.

Gasoline futures are off 24 cents a gallon.

This could get really interesting over the next couple of weeks.

We're at $1.97 now at a few local stations.  I'm curious about how this will shake out over the next few weeks.  Saudi doesn't have as much clout as it once had to conduct oil price wars.

The price at the Citgo near my house FINALLY dropped yesterday, from $2.29 to $2.19. That's the first solid drop I've seen in gas prices in Northern Virginia. All of the other stations are sitting where they've been for weeks, even though the price of oil, and the wholesale price of refined gasoline, have dropped by nearly 50%.

I know industry people will say "well, the cheaper oil/gas have to work their way through the system. The product that's in the system now is the higher priced product so we can't drop prices yet.

But... that sure as *expletive deleted*ck don't keep them from ratcheting up prices fast as anything when wholesale prices go up, even though the cheaper product is still in the system.

My old truck driver contacts remember when crude was $30/bbl, and diesel was $1.20. Of course they think it's a conspiracy that it's been hovering around $30/bbl for quite a while but diesel prices haven't dropped much.

I still remember when diesel was always cheaper than gas, so people bought diesel vehicles because the fuel was cheaper. Diesel has been more expensive than gas for how long? So the economics changed somehow for some reason.

West Texas Intermediate is trading at $25 and change right now and it's looking like it could drop below that today.

Several companies/analysts have predicted that oil could, for a period of time, drop into the teens if the Saudis and Russians don't come to some sort of agreement and also if Corona hasa a big impact on the summer driving season.

Gas buddy says that they lowest price in Virginia right now is $1.49 a gallon.

 I agree there are more useful sources for actual information on the net.  So don't look at me, I didn't start this thread.

The OP:

Over the past couple of weeks the price of crude oil has been slipping quite a bit, as have gasoline futures.

Oil's down nearly $20 a barrel, and gasoline futures are down nearly 35 cents. (Home heating oil is also dropping, but not nearly as much).

Slowly we're seeing prices move lower at the pump.

At the station nearest me, a Citgo, the price for regular is $3.15 a gallon, which is about as low as I've seen it in my area.

The takeaway?  Pump prices have fluctuated, but seem to have dropped about a buck/gal in 5-1/2 years.

The Citgo near my house has finally dropped a bit more. It's now sitting at $2.15.

I've seen a couple of places in Northern Virginia that are as low as $2.09.

The Exxon near where I shop? I've mentioned before that it's an isolated station, the only one for several miles in either direction so they think they have a monopoly?

Still sitting at $2.99 a gallon.



Meanwhile, in Castle Key's neck of the woods, it's generally around $1.79 a gallon.

I paid $1.89 in Fredericksburg, VA, right off I-95 on my way down, but it was 10 or more cents a gallon cheaper at several other stations on that stretch.

Man, as of yesterday my local station is at $2.55 - only a 5 cent drop since this crash started. I just don't get it.

How far does fuel need to be trucked in and how many times is station replenished each week? Shorter trucking distances and fuel turnover will allow for faster drop in prices. Also depends upon the prices at the terminal.

Our cheapest stations probably have fuel delivered every 2-3 days and our fuel terminal is 7 miles from my house, ethanol plant is 2 miles form my house. About as cheap as you're going to get for trucking.

Crude was skyrocketing...

Then, things seemed to hit a snag, and the price start falling...

Mexico refused to agree to its share of the cuts.

By close of trading, the price was off 7.5%, back to $23.19 a barrel for WTI.

And they're heading back tomorrow for another day of talks, but reports are that there's still a lot of trouble in paradise...

Rush Limbaugh was discussing this on his April 20th show.  In the immediate future, oil has plummeted .... but if you go farther out into the future they recover.  It's believed that demand will rise again with recovery,  which isn't unreasonable.

Great news if it happens. When I recently complained about it (again), I learned Trump doesn't have carte blanche to just do it. So hopefully congress cooperates on this. I mean, it's a win for the fiscal hawks, and even a win to the AOCs that want to stick it to the oil companies.

Does he really need permission from congress if the oil is free?  (or the receiver is paid to take it)  

Appropriations bills need to start in the House, but if the amount is $0 I'd think he could do that out of petty cash.  Certainly he has a small descretionary budget.  Or he could solicit a donation from someone stuck with May oil contracts and no place to put it.

Appropriations bills need to start in the House, but if the amount is $0 I'd think he could do that out of petty cash.  Certainly he has a small descretionary budget.  Or he could solicit a donation from someone stuck with May oil contracts and no place to put it.

I'm guessing the amount won't be $0. My understanding is negative prices factor in having to build additional storage plus transport costs. The SOR would handle the storage part, but I'm betting the gov will pay transport costs. Which seems reasonable to me.

Since this is the Federal government, the cost of $0/bbl oil will probably be $100/bbl or more.

Is there actual storage facilities for the strategic reserves, or do they just buy oil to be left in the ground? I heard about salt domes in LA being used for storage, but it could just be hearsay.

See the wiki. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_Petroleum_Reserve_%28United_States%29)  The oil is stored in underground salt caverns mostly in Louisiana and Texas.

I got .50 off a gallon at Kwik Star/Trip, that will make for a cheap fill up, now if I can use up my tank before the .50 expire.

.50 off?  Where'd you get that, from buying all those packs of bacon last month?  (I'm serious)  I have not seen any good discounts, but I was out of the state for over a month so may have missed the flyer.

Thanks.  I didn't miss much then.  Their pizza is okay but not that great and a bit overpriced, and my tank only holds 12 gallons.  Not worth it to save at most $6. :)  A good deal if you really like their pizza.  Or have a 30 gallon tank.

I paid $0.419 today, but that was with some Kroger discounts.  $1.319 without.

Filled up the truck and two 5 gallon gas cans for under $15.

The station that'd gone up $0.01 last Thurs or so dropped from $1.48 to $1.38 yesterday.  Right now I don't anticipate it going much lower around here (N. TX) - but who knows?

We're seeing $1.49 to $1.59 around here, with the exception of one station up in Caldwell County near my FIL.  SWMBO saw them at $1.40 yesterday after she had already bought gas elsewhere.
That station has been a bit of a maverick with their pricing recently.

Still $ 2.09 at the Marysville Costco, 40 miles north of Seattle.  Although Costco has a new sticker on the pumps, and I can now see that with State and Federal gas taxes, $ 0.694 cents per gallon goes to taxes.  Approximately a third of the cost of a gallon here goes to taxes.  I had read elsewhere that Washington state has something like the first or second highest state gas taxes in the country.

Small town just off Hwy 80 in N TX was $1.48 this afternoon, 15 mi away on the other side of I20 it was $1.45 - for the cheap stuff at both. 

Looks as if it's going to settle around there for now, prices have been up and down only by a penny or two over the last couple of weeks or so.

Still over $1.85 in my area, closer to $2 at most stations.  Not very far west of here it's supposed to be much cheaper, though.  Living in Northern VA comes with a lot of unnecessary premium costs.

That Exxon station I've talked about numerous times in the past?

The one with ridiculously high prices because it's the only station on a several mile stretch of road?

Their price NEVER moved a penny.

It's still sitting at $2.99 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Not that far away the price is over $1 a gallon less.

I'm betting they sell VERY little gasoline.

I can't imagine why stations would pull that crap when finding a gas station with a reasonable price is just a Siri/Google shoutout away.

$1.89 at Costco, while it jumped to $2.29 at my local stations. What the hell, man?

It's usually about 15 cents more at my station than Costco - 40 cents is wack. All I can figure is because both the stations in town are on a minor artery that people take through Idaho and to a couple of neighboring states,  maybe the stations want to cash in on Holiday traffic.


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?

We've seen price increases of about 21 cents/gallon in this area.  We're now up to $1.73-$1.75 around here.
Kind of expected since oil has gone back up over $30 a barrel.

Price at my local Citgo is now at $1.95 a gallon. I think as things slowly start to reopen and people start to travel again the price is going to jump pretty quickly.

Perhaps that station is really a front for a money laundering operation, drug lab, human trafficking, etc.  They don't want customers; just a very few (and stupid ones at that) to maintain the image.

$1.54 Tulsa area. The lowest I saw locally was $1.38 and it sort of hung there through the bottom falling out and once the bottom was over it jumped up to $1.54 and has stayed there for several weeks. Typical for around here is at least weekly fluctuations but rock solid for longer than normal.

Oddly enough, last weekend the price at my local Citgo went from $1.95 to $1.89. Well, that's not odd because they do 6 cent off weekends.

But that IS odd is that the price never went back up. It's sitting at $1.89 (or $1.83 if the 6 cent weekend is in force).


Title: Re: So what's everone paying for gasoline?

Just 'cause it's been forever since I last saw this:

They just refurb'ed the local Murphy's station.  Fewer pumps to make room for a small store rather than the original shack.

They added non-methonal nozzles to all the pumps, at about $0.50/gal more than the 10% stuff.  The 10% is at $1.89.

The odd thing is the price for diesel is at $1.70.  I don't remember the last time I saw diesel for less than gasoline.
