Jumped 20 cents per gallon overnight in Elkhart. Surprised me this morning. It always seems to jump faster than it falls, too. Might be a Solyndra tax.

Sounds like a refinery outage to me. When the price goes up in parts of the country, but not in others this is the sort of thing that happens.

Saudi airforce tax. It’s to offset the disruption of oil markets when the Saudis and Israelis drop the 57 super bunker busters down the Ayatollah holes venting fresh air to their nuclear sites.

Could be your winter gas blend arrived and it reflects some of the price increase. Winter blends are always higher. If there is also a shortage of winter blend, that would drive the price up as well.

It’s only $1.95 here in Texas.

Of course, here we pump it out of the ground right into our gas tanks. That’s only if you drive a diesel, though; if you’re running a gasoline engine, expect to pay about two bucks a gallon.

And of course I’m lying out my ass...

I read in the WSJ that at current prices, driving on nat gas is like buying gasoline @ $1.50 per gallon.

No wonder Honda just just put on a second shift @ the plant here in Indiana that assembles nat gas Civics.

3.29 to 3.54 downtown and 3.39 to 3.55 at station on I-65.

I did a Gas Buddy check and the same price jump is all over Indiana from Indianapolis northward and across Ohio on I-70. and there was one story online from South-west michigan for 30 cent increase. Too big of an area for a single refinery shutdown.

If you follow the spot contract prices each day, you can see it has gone up over 20¢ in the last week.

Retail prices seem to follow spot prices up within days, but take a few weeks to follow them down.

Here in Central Illinois, gas prices went up 20 cents. Went from 3.29 to 3.49. I always look on www.gasbuddy.com. Tells you all the gas prices of each individual gas station in all the states. It also warns you when gas is going up.

It took months for gas prices to match the drop in oil prices, however the slightest little blip in the other direction and the increase is instantaneous.

why can't people figure out that superstar quarterbacks (Manning), baseball pitchers, corporate execs, entertainers, etc. are paid huge anounts of money because so very few people can do that job. If you don't like it, don't patronize their product......I don't know what you do for a living, but I'll bet that a higher percentage of the general public could do your job just as well, or better, than you do it whereas only a handfull of people in the world could possibly sucessfully operate Ford Motor Company! If I am in charge(and I have been on a smaller scale) and someone runs my company and provides it a 5 billion dollar quarterly profit, I'll kick him/her a couple of million in bonus bucks!

The rage against “Wall Street” and CEO’s crossed over to conservatives when the bailouts occured. IMHO that was planned by Obama. It is easy to place blame on CEO’s with million dollar bonuses as their company tanks. Even easier when my tax money pays it. But I/we need to remember the government was the one bailing them out.

And as far as increased prices, when you just print more money that will be the result. And not allowing us to drill for oil doesn’t help with the gas prices.

Now that the banks paid back TARP, at a profit to the Treasury, are the bonuses okay?

Gas spiked from 3.23 to 3.46 Wed afternoon here in Evansville IN., for no known reason.
I remember in my youth, gas would rise 3 cents on Thursday and drop the same on Sunday, like clockwork. Now the gas goes up a quarter and drops by a few pennies per day for a week, until the next spike.

First off - I think the bonuses were okay in the first place. Those were agreements in place between the company and the person.

And I know that it has been talked about how all of the TARP money has been paid back. I have read that may be true of the large banks, but the smaller banks and other firms like AIG, GM, etc. it seems not. And a lot of it is pretty confusing to me. (Like your tagline says - that’s me!) But it looks like lots of wheeling and dealings to make it look good on paper.

All I know is that with the bailouts came lots of talk on FR how these CEO’s, the banks, etc. were evil for still handing out those salaries. And I think that was an intended consequence. The other intended consequence was for the companies to have to rely on the graces of the government more.
