We went from 3.49 on Friday at lunch to 3.74 when i got off Friday at 4 pm.

It's 3.79 now.

25 cents in a couple of hours? They just raising prices because their bored?

There was even a thread about a guy questioning if 4 dollar gas was killing everyone else like it was killing him

Despite the fact that it wasn't even 4 dollars for premium at the time

People love being hacks


How do you know the guy was not paying nearly four; not everyone lives in the same state as yourself.

And I am so glad you seem to have no problems with the gas prices, so therefore by your logic you are not a hack.

That is idiotic. Gas prices are higher due to inflation that weakens the dollar. These newly created dollars make their way overseas and help to bid oil prices up.

If you don't think gas prices are an indicator of the economy you should just leave this thread.

I changed the OP picture so you can calm down and stop acting all fair minded about gas prices and so above everyone else in words and intelligence. You really try to hard at seeming independent when you are being a dick.

The other picture was probably an estimate of how high it goes before Obama gets us all weaned off and somehow forced into his failed energy plans.

Not everyone has low gas prices. LINK

He said high gas prices are an indicator of a strong economy. I said that is idiotic.

I have no idea how you misconstrued what I was saying.

So you put up a picture, "probably an estimate of how high it goes before Obama gets us all weaned off and somehow forced into his failed energy plans" in a thread about gas prices going up $.51, and you want to call someone a "dick"?

I want to know what happened last November when gas prices were supposed to be over $5 according to conservatives last summer.

Gas prices swing - get used to it.

Here are some factors affecting the price of gas:

Demand for the product.

Value of the dollar.

Reserve supply/production capacity.

Political situation in key petroleum producing regions.

It can be?

I didn't misunderstand you, you just don't know what you're talking about.

Gas prices swing, get used to it?

So the 'political situation' you cite; has nothing to do with Obama, the EPA or the feds?

It's the local politicians fault? Bush's fault?

How DARE you blame Obama!

:More pseudo-intellectuals will arrive to this thread and blame Bush and local politics. NOTHING IS OBAMA'S FAULT and they refuse to denounce both political parties.

KEY HERE: is they defend democratic ideals and Obama NOMATTERWHAT:

It's a commodity Cajun. I don't complain about pork bellies either. Do you really think that any President has control over gas prices? What specifically was Obama doing last summer when prices were going down?

Really? So you're telling me that the economy is better now than it was under Clinton or Bush?

Its called inflation


I guess another indicator is the GDP number





And FTR, I wasn't blaming Obama, I was making fun of his statement and how he spends anything negative as a success of his administration.

I know exactly what I am talking about.

P.s.. The guy I was responding to said high gas prices IS an indicator of a strong economy... not that it CAN be.

There is a difference.

Also, do you support the notion that rising gas prices right now are the result of a strengthening economy? If so, explain your position.

Shale gas can make us much more of a "key petroleum producing region" if our political situation improves, so good point.

I just said it's one indicator

And I noticed you and everyone else dodged the question about what happened when everything crashed in 08

Gas prices went down

The fact that a bunch of people in the gulf south are bitching about gas prices is rather silly

Upstream development which greatly supports the economic engine of the gulf south relies on gas prices to be "high"

Well it's not a bad sign that's for sure

It means that the price of crude oil is high. And we currently produce a lot of oil. Good for trade.

I can say this much. If gas prices go down to 1.50 anytime in the near future, it won't be a good sign.

Do you think it would be?

He claimed 4 not nearly 4

And at the time even So Cal prices weren't that high

And they don't get any higher than California prices
