WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY PAYING FOR A GALLON OF REGULAR UNLEADED GASOLINE IN YOUR AREA OF THE COUNTRY, OR THE WORLD???















U.S. Retail Gasoline Prices



Well prices leveled off for a couple of weeks, but have now resumed an upward spike!!! On top of that I bet that many of you have also observed the predicted inflation coming into play. I have been doing the grocery shopping with my wife the past several weeks, and have been amazed at how fast food prices are RISING, especially vegetables and red meat...

So please let us all know what you are currently paying for regular unleaded gasoline.

Just a new update from Broward County Florida.

In Weston regular gas is now $3.95/gal.

In Sunrise I filled up for $3.87/gal.

going up everywhere by leaps and bounds.

Don't Like a Weak Dollar? Might as Well Get Used to It


Weakness in the US dollar, which is causing everything to go up—including gas prices, food and stocks—is unlikely to go away soon as a selling frenzy hits the currency market.

The greenback is approaching pre-financial crisis lows and threatening to smash through its all-time low when measured against the world's predominant national currencies.

A combination of factors accounts for the weakness, with the Federal Reserve's easy-money policies, huge national debts and deficits and the consequential possibility of a debt downgrade because of the financial mess in Washington leading the way.

Hello GR,

Most of our stations are still at $3.85 a gal.

Hope the trend of going up slows down a bit!

Wishing you and your family a lovely and Blessed Easter Sunday!

$6 Gas? Could Happen if Dollar Keeps Getting Weaker


With the greenback coming under increased pressure from Federal Reserve policies and investor appetite for more risk, there seems little direction but up for commodity prices, in particular energy and metals.

Weakness in the US currency feeds upward pressure on commodities, which are priced in dollars and thus come at a discount on the foreign markets.

One result has been a surge higher in gasoline prices to nearly $4 a gallon before the summer driving season even starts, a trend that economists say will be aggravated as demand increases and the summer storm season threatens to disrupt oil supplies.

Does anyone remember the words of our current Energy Secretary? Remember the %'s and electricity too folks !



What did he say?



We should learn from our friends across the pond. Austerity and all. Just look and see for yourselves. Nearly 35 years since we built a new refinery, and yet our government lends 2.8 and up to 5 billion for one in Columbia,,,,,(borrowed money from China may I add) above and beyond the 2 billion for deep water drilling in S. America? What is really going on ?

Yeah, I read about S&P. Yeah, I'm scared.

3.999 for regular here in NY. Unfortunately, my MX-5 uses premium at 4.1999. I used to drive to the next town for milk and eggs, just for the fun of driving with the top down. Now I can hardly afford the milk and eggs, never mind the gas to get there.

Yup, scary stuff. But what's really scary is that so many people are so oblivious to what is going on.



Yes I agree.... and when the U.S. dollar finally collapses, and the U.S. defaults (even though many experts on CNBC said it could never happen), it will be reported in the MSM as UNEXPECTEDLY!!!

Good Morning {{GR}}!

Gas price was 3.75 Friday, yesterday it was down to 3.69. It's bad when you hurry to top off your tank at that price.

Have a Great Day!! :-)

Chain reactions ?

Not many think of the impact on the price of everything when gas goes up. Think of the farming industry just to start, then transportation and on and on. This is not going to be fun.

I found this good enough to share also :)

How many boats can travel to Venezuela to fill up and save money?

Hummmm, anyone want to pitch in on a tanker of gas from that country to resell in the US :)

Oss, Venezuela doesn't like to sell their fuel to American flagged ships, better off going to Trinidad.

20 Signs That A Horrific Global Food Crisis Is Coming


#3 Due to U.S. ethanol subsidies, almost a third of all corn grown in the United States is now used for fuel. This is putting a lot of stress on the price of corn.

#8 The tsunami and subsequent nuclear crisis in Japan have rendered vast agricultural areas in that nation unusable. In fact, there are many that believe that eventually a significant portion of northern Japan will be considered to be uninhabitable. Not only that, many are now convinced that the Japanese economy, the third largest economy in the world, is likely to totally collapse as a result of all this.

#9 The price of oil may be the biggest factor on this list. The way that we produce our food is very heavily dependent on oil. The way that we transport our food is very heavily dependent on oil. When you have skyrocketing oil prices, our entire food production system becomes much more expensive. If the price of oil continues to stay high, we are going to see much higher food prices and some forms of food production will no longer make economic sense at all.

#11 Food inflation is already devastating many economies around the globe. For example, India is dealing with an annual food inflation rate of 18 percent.

#12 According to the United Nations, the global price of food reached a new all-time high in February.

#13 According to the World Bank, the global price of food has risen 36% over the past 12 months.

#14 The commodity price of wheat has approximately doubled since last summer.

#15 The commodity price of corn has also about doubled since last summer.

#16 The commodity price of soybeans is up about 50% since last June.

#17 The commodity price of orange juice has doubled since 2009.







World Bank president: 'One shock away from crisis'



For all those that believe Glenn Beck was a crazed loon, it is appearing more, and more likely that he will be right on in his predictions of a global economic collapse.

Hello GR and all,

I did not have to "fill up" today but saw another sign for $3.85 gallon...


Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

g'morning GR and everyone

here in jacksonville, we're hanging tight around $3.78, give or take a few cents. I have not seen anything over $3.79, well not yet anyways. Our prices have not gone up this week.

But then again, WTI is not jumping up $3 a day, like it did last Friday. we'll see how the weekend goes.

Sorry to hear about others. (shakes head sadly) I gotta go to Wallymart today; I'll pop a coupla pre-emptive valiums and get thru it somehow.

Study: Gas prices will be 40% higher than last summer


Funny thing that this is suppose to be a study of gasoline prices for this summer.... However, judging from the observations posted here, and elsewhere, pricers have ALREADY surpassed this forecast!!!
Member Since: Julio 4, 2005 Posts: 204 Comments: 8802
I just paid $3.83 gal and most places were closer to $3.89 and $3.98...
regular is now about to cross into the $4/gal mark here in Broward County.

Gas $3.81 today. As much as the gas prices aggravates me (because it is unnecessary!), the food prices are really what is scary.

Chew on this FACT:

Inflation Actually Near 10% Using Older Measure

After former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker was appointed in 1979, the consumer price index surged into the double digits, causing the now revered Fed Chief to double the benchmark interest rate in order to break the back of inflation. Using the methodology in place at that time puts the CPI back near those levels.

Inflation, using the reporting methodologies in place before 1980, hit an annual rate of 9.6 percent in February, according to the Shadow Government Statistics newsletter.




So if you have money in a CD, earning 2% interest a year, congratulations you are LOSING over 7.5% value on your savings a year!!!

You live in a county named Lee as well?
I wish the Lee county I lived in had as good an unemployment rate!

Why the drastic variations in your states unemployment rate from county to county?
I saw rates as high as 21%.
Something in your county/or the other counties is causing a difference.
Hummmmm?
Gas prices must be lower in your county.
Snicker:O)

Gas prices here are ridiculous!
$3.75 to $3.89/gal
Whats your counties sales tax rate?
Lee County Florida is at 6%.
Well at least the price of milk is keeping up with gasoline.
Milk and toast are now too expensive for me.

Too bad the corn used to feed the cows is being used to create pollution causing Ethanol.
And the net result is the price to transport my bread is going up.



Sales Tax here is 7.5%I believe...gas is 3.59...milk is 3.70...bread is 1.89...rent runs 550/a month...home prices for a new home are in the low 100s for new...70s for used...in the AVERAGE hoods....land will run ya 12-18k per acer developed...or 6-10 undeveloped ...more you buy the cheaper it is...all this is in the county,,,not in town.

Published: March 25, 2011

Lee County’s unemployment rate dropped nearly half a percentage point in February, while the statewide jobless rate remained unchanged, according to data released Friday.

The area’s unemployment rate decreased from 8.3 percent in January to 7.9 percent in February. Lee County has the fifth-lowest jobless rate of Alabama’s 67 counties.

Neighboring counties Chambers, Macon, Russell and Tallapoosa all had double-digit unemployment rates in February.

Meanwhile, the state’s unemployment rate remained static at 9.3 percent after enjoying modest decreases over much of 2010.

“Our unemployment rate for February remained stable and did not increase, which is something we’re always glad to be able to say,” said Tom Surtees, director of Alabama’s Department of Industrial Relations

As of late this evening, name brand regular unleaded here in NOLA area was averaging around $3.75 a gallon...

If you search around you still could find unbranded unleaded for $3.59 to $3.67 a gallon...

I was speaking to two gasoline station owners today, and they both told me that there suppliers have informed them to expect regular unleaded to average around $4.00 to $4.10 a gallon by EASTER WEEKEND here in the NOLA area...

They also were not joking when they both indicated to me that the national average for regular unleaded would be near, or at $5.00 a gallon by July 4!!!

That will just do wonders for the general economy, especially areas relying on tourism...

I don't think we'll see $4.75 here by June 1st, GR. That's a lot. But by the end of summer? Depends on gulf activity- in my area, we seem to respond quicker to gulf storms than we do per-barrel costs.

BUT, I can only speak for the Jacksonville area, of course. Other areas will probably see that price, I don't doubt it.


I hope you are correct!

Even tho prices fell a tiny bit (WTI) I still saw $3.77 to $3.87 on the way home from work. (had been $3.72 over the weekend) I told co-workers, probably $4.00 by June 1st.

I wonder if I will be right.


June will most likely be closer to 4.75 US average IMO.
