The average price of a gallon of regular is now $3.87, the highest recorded price in March. The average price is up nearly 4 cents from a week ago, and over 30 cents from a year ago, according to the Department of Energy, as more drivers face gas prices of $4 a gallon or more across the country.

Last week, the average gas price was $3.83 a gallon, the previous record according to data going back to 1990.

The West Coast was once again the most expensive region with an average gas price of $4.23, up almost 2 cents from last week, with an increase of over 37 cents from a year ago.

This is not directed at you. But I am tired of hearing the republican candidates stating that the president has no control over gas prices.

Sorry but I am not buying it and I hope Americans are not buying it.

The president makes the prices go up and down all the time, maybe not directly.

But by his actions or inactions or his radical thoughts broadcasted along with his cabinets actions and loud voices.

Sick of it basically.

I am trying to find out what the actual cost was in November 2008 because I know it was not what I paid today. All I can find on the internet is how prices skyrocketed in 2008 even the triple a sight cant’ or won't devulge the actual price.

Hmmm...wouldn’t it be a scream if Wall Street and the Oil Co.s WERE, ahem, messing with the prices?

What a delicious way to piss off 90% of the country with such high gas prices. We all know the blame always goes to the Pres now matter what the algae scum sucking media says...

Actually good for the economy. Those gas station managers go out and spend all their money on stuff, boosts retail sales.

Filled up today @ $4.39. Doesn’t affect me the way it does others and as I filled up I wondered how it affects those who can’t really afford another hit, unexpected, to their monthly budget.

Weekly Retail Gasoline and Diesel Prices

Data back to 1993, it can be sorted by type of gasoline and you can select the area down to some states.

Those gas station managers are buy at high wholesale prices.

The Refineries are buying high priced crude.

Government is making out pretty good on high taxes for the crude however.

Sometimes, when constructing or using extremely complex simulations, we encounter a “tipping point”, when a variable exceeds a value that we planned for in our assumptions, and wierd things happen. Increase the highway speed of a tank, and you all of a sudden lose the war, for instance. (Tanks got too far ahead, battle didn’t happen, enemy survived to attack later, then wiped us out).

This is called “structural variance”, although you will never hear a climate modeler admit that it exists.

I think our economy will hit a tipping point at about $5/gallon.

Hold on to your hats.
