    $3.84? Ppppfffftttt! I'm paying $4.62 here! I'd kill for something under $4. I agree with Jan Durzynski, we are being trained. They have to progressively raise prices to make money as the Dollar continues to lose its value. Otherwise, we'd still be paying 25cents a gallon.

    Still $4.20+ per gallon around Chicago...I'd be happy to see $3.70 again.

    It never ceases t amaze me the excuses they (oil companies) use to justify raising the pump price. The wall street traders and speculators need roemoved from the oil market. No one should be allowed to play fast and loose with a commodity needed by millions for every day life.

    When the demand for gas decreases the price will go down. It doesn't make any sense trying to find a logical explanation because there isn't any. Gas prices are not regulated by any agency that sets national standards or whatever, that's all. Another thing that will go without logic or common sense is why the price of Diesel is higher than the price of gasoline(petrol), and whatever the reason behind that is, it seems to only happen here in US. BTW that's not the way it is in Europe or Latin America. I drive a 2012 Prius today and I'm using one half the amount of gas I used to. If the rest of the drivers did the same, then producers would have to either cut production by half or selling the extra at a lower price, which is what I find more

    I must add that its similarly crazy over here. Also: Its $9.50/Gallon here. Stop your winging, former colony.

    @Matthew: How far is the average commute over there in the former colonist country? Over here it may range from 60 to 160 miles

  • fb_519418559 avatar Adalberto Posted: 9/11/2012 8:11pm PDT

    likely to happen. You will see that plus millions of incentives to bring you back to using gas guzzlers.

    ONLY $3.84? Come to Connecticut! We're paying $3.99 and that's at the cheap no-name gas station! Hang in there! You KNOW prices will DROP just before election! It's ALL a game!

  • fb_599454693 avatar Jan Posted: 9/11/2012 9:31pm PDT

    Why would it drop before the elections? Since when do the oil corporations support Obama (even though they should since he's expanded drilling more than any other president)?

  • fb_599454693 avatar Jan Posted: 9/11/2012 1:11pm PDT

    We're all being trained :-) $3.69 would seem cheap now and anything below $4 will be god sent next year. Exxon would fail if it didn't grow its profits every quarter and our consumption is falling every year, so the equation is rather simple.

    Meanwhile, have you heard either Presidential candidate mention how they're committed to getting Wall Street out of the oil speculation business?

    I've always been skeptical about fluctuations in prices at the pump. I find it interesting that at the first sign that Isaac would enter the gulf, prices everywhere rose. Now that it's passed and the refineries are operational, why aren't prices lowering just as fast? I'm certain that gas prices are a complicated matter, but there seems to be no obvious logic, or accountability, for fluctuations.
