2.80 here in fla

look for fuel prices to be around 5.00/ 6.00 a gallon within the next couple of years.
big oil (companies) has set the stage for the price increase. i know it sounds far fetched, but it will more than likely happen. i know a guy that has been in the business for forty years, he knows the business inside and out. i did not beleive him a few years back when he said fuel would be 3.00/gallon. was
1.50 then.

Gouging

One of the guaranteed ways to piss me off is to start talking about the price of a gallon of diesel...or gas. The cost of a gallon has more than doubled since buying my first Stroke in '03. It's ridiculous as I'm sure we all complain about it.
I spent $80 Friday for 30 gallons...$2.64 per was the cost ($2.54 with my .10 cent Kroger discount). I saw it yesterday for up to $2.89 per gallon around Cincinnati. It had been at $2.41 up until last week where I buy most of my diesel.
The SOBs are going to really bend us over at the pumps this summer fellas. Better take KY lube out of bedroom and put it under the front seat of your truck.

what you guys call gouging is some of the best fuel prices in the world......if you adjust the price of gasoline from 1930 to may first of 2006 for inflation in the US.....we should be paying a touch over 6.75 a gallon.......most places in europe pay 6.50-8.00 a gallon for diesel. i dont like the prices either....but that kinda makes it seem not so bad in comparison.

Above was just to make a comparison....but what really ticks me off is when people start bashing the oil companies because of their profits. last time i checked companies were in business to make a profit....and the oil companies total profits are for manufatcuting, shipping, selling of gas, as well as the fact that they have thier hand it TONS of other things.....from glue and rubber sales to motor oil........any who even implies that the oil companies are making too much needs to re think his view on capitalism and stop thinking that just because we are the most oil dependant country, we deserve our fuel cheap. alright.....im off my soapbox.......all just my opinion.........Marc

this article should shed a little light on the oil business (link at bottom), as the charts show, oil is on the low end of things costing more.
i dont have a prob. with companys making money, after all it helps create jobs, i just would like to see more of an investment made in america to provide more skilled jobs (from all business sectors), which helps boost the economy, which equals people spending more money, which equals more money for business's, instead of sending jobs oversees to try to save a few cents.

i travel the backstreets of the super information highway ; i usually find most of the "goodies" while searching for a simalar subject, not expecting to come across what i find as a result. as i am sure everyone knows, there is just about everthing on the net, finding it is the hard part. for example, i found the 7.3l tech. manuel while searching for info for the rallys forum...
