Vanity - Gas prices went up 14 cents TODAY
09/08/12 | My own lying eyes

Posted on 09/08/2012 4:53:04 PM PDT by P.O.E.

Bought gas in NJ noon today at $3.559. On the return trip, around 6PM, price was $3.699.

I'm pretty sure it's because of pending QE3, but I'm no expert.

I expect the price of everything else to soon rise accordingly.

I've been putting this sticker on gas pumps:

"Somehow we have to figure
out how to boost the price of
gasoline to the [$8-$10/gal]
levels in Europe." - Barack Obama's
Energy Secretary Steve Chu. Had enough yet???

I've sized mine to fit twelve to a sheet of bumper sticker stock...

Went up 10 cents on Long Island between mid-morning & mid-afternoon. Noticed the price at our local Shell station on the way home from breakfast - $4.09. About 5 hours later, passed the same station - $4.19.

Drove from way downeast Maine to the midcoast area (150 miles) today and saw prices from 3.809 to 3.999.

Overall, prices have gone up in our area about 20 cents over the past week or so.

It’s always slated to go DOWN after Labor Day; the futures always reflect the expectation that people are finished with vacations since school has started, decreasing demand. That it should be up that much is horrific.

SoCal was $4.25/gal yesterday for the low end, up about .10 since the last fill up.

OT: Was told yesterday by reliable source that Los Angeles will be bankrupt in 2014, even though Villaraigosa said it won't happen on his watch. I guess that means the day after he leaves office next June. A few months ago, the LAPD Police Chief said his department has taken a $120 million budget reduction and can't pay officers overtime.

We're moving out of state, hopefully before the election.

Facts and reality don’t matter to the Sheeple. Obama gives good speeches, is “cool”, and you’re a racist if you don’t vote for him. When stacked up against all that, what difference do little things like the economy and personal finances make?

The price of everything is already rising. Around here, chicken feed is up 33% in the last month alone . . .

Democrats see no connection between rising gasoline costs and the price of goods and services to voters. Filling up a gas can for use in the lawn tractor or rototiller is easily more than $20.00 now.

My husband agrees with you about the $6.00 per gallon range by November - maybe that's what it will take for the liberal jack@sses to bring their messiah's message home for them.

There won't be any morey to spend on entertainment, and that will leave those Hollywood and celebrity types without customers and give them a sweet but painful lesson about the importance of capitalism.

For about ten minutes after the RNC left Charlotte, I let myself feel hopeful.

Today I read the full August 22 updated report: Analysis of CBO's Updated Budget and Economic Outlook. I had previously only read the conclusion and was starting to freak out. The actual report is frightening. I'm getting into accelerated action (i.e., moving out of California).

From the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget site:

$3.89/gal unl-reg to $4.19/gal unl-prem to $4.29/gal diesel in South Central Pa.

I also hope it goes to $7-8-9/gal, if that gets that POS out of the White Hut/Crib!

Bureaucrats don’t like it at all, BTW. High gas prices slow the velocity of debt that they consume for their jobs of preventing production.

Yep. Avoiding fuel costs probably allows them to better stock up on firearms, ammo and brains.

Now it doesn't go down until after hurricane season.

Got in under the wire in South Jersey. The sign had already been changed to 3.89 but they hadn't re calibrated the pump so I filled up for 3.71.

Not a peep about gas prices and Afghan war dead now.

I’ve been paying about $3.75 a gallon in Overland Park, KS.

I noticed prices went up substantially around the time of the Hurricane, but they’ve been stable since. I haven’t checked the price today though.

Obama gives good speeches

The thing is that his speeches have no connection to his actions, policies, or reality in general. In fact, his speeches often contradict his earlier statements and speeches. And certainly the promises he made.

I don’t think the $6 would matter. Was sitting in the cockpit of our boat last night talking with 2 of our neighbors, one is a lib. He agreed with us on all points but still said he will vote Obama. I don’t think anything will change their mind.
