Pump prices are falling
Fuel Fix ^ | September 23, 2013 | Zain Shauk

Posted on 09/23/2013 10:10:57 AM PDT by thackney

Gasoline prices are at their lowest level since early July and are expected to fall further, according to an analysis from GasBuddy.com.

The national average for a gallon of regular is $3.47, down 34 cents from a year ago, according to AAA.

The average price for a gallon of regular in Houston is $3.23, down 37 cents from a year ago, according to AAA data.

Because refineries are running at high rates and consumer demand likely will be down from last year, prices will continue a gradual decline, GasBuddy.com Chief Oil Analyst Tom Kloza said in an email.

Several refuelling stations in Houston are currently offering gasoline for less than $3 a gallon, according to data on GasBuddy.com.

The falling prices for U.S. gasoline is coming as oil prices remain high, above $103 a barrel on Monday for West Texas Intermediate domestic crude.

If oil prices fall, that will push gasoline prices even lower, Kloza said.

Maybe Pennsylvania didn’t get the memo? Haven’t noticed. I’m sure it will be back up to $4 again when Obama finds out. I was talking to someone who just got back from Ireland. The gas there is the equivalent of $12/gallon! That is our future if we let these lunatics continue to occupy our government!

As the Obama economy continues to faulter, and people have no need to travel to work, or can afford to travel to shop, there will be less demand for gas and prices will fall even more.

The 2.99 gas in Texas is indicative of the economic downturn.

Yes - I had $3.21 in Denton, TX Sunday. I’m not very knowledgeable about the fuel industry, but seem to recall that refiners are required to make different fuels for winter months. If so, and I hate to be negative, would assume there will be another supply issue to drive prices back up.

Didn’t get the memo in Reno either. At least not yet. Maybe they’re switching over to the “winter blend”. LOL! In any case, the lowest I found in the last several days is $3.69 for regular.

SO far, EVERYTIME this kind of message comes out, gas prices drop for 10 days to two weeks THEN, they CLIMB again under some manufactured news or tied to news such as Libya, etc.

EXPECT more of the SAME when the MSM tells us once again... "Prices at the Pump Rise UNEXPECTEDLY on news of _________"

Don't worry folks.
Washington will find a way to get those gas prices back up in the $3.50 range quick enough.

In Richland we actually had a station @ 3.38 a couple of weeks ago while most were in the 50s and 60s, now that station is in the 50s and most are in the low 60s. So gone up here.

I am still waiting for the damned outrage! I am biting my tongue every time I fill up. No one seems to give a crap that we are paying insane gas prices for 5 years. No one cares that unemployment is never going to go below 7 or 8 %. No one cares. No media hysteria over these issues. Amazing how brainwashed Americans are. If the media doesn’t tell them to care, they don’t care.

They didn’t get the memo in Fishers. IN and the surrounding area. We came home from work last Wednesday evening and most stations were around $3.29 a gallon. On the way to work the next morning the same stations were $3.59 a gallon.

I saw $2.99 at an Exxon Station in Alvin, Texas this weekend.

Wow. We were thrilled to see a "low" price of $3.66 here in northern Connecticut this weekend.

Fortunately a local supermarket chain here (Stop & Shop) has Gas Points Rewards... we accumulate points by buying groceries, then drive a few miles to Massachusetts (slightly lower gas taxes than CT's), and usually fill up both cars for about $2.89/gallon. That's the price when gas here is about $3.89+.

I often make a fairly loud point of speaking up at the supermarket checkout about the outrageous food and gas prices "lately" (I don't even mention the past 5 years nor do I mention Obama).

People at the checkout look at me like I have 3 heads... like I'm some kind of nut job. (I do live in CT, though, as I said in my previous post)

I think you nailed it - if the media doesn't tell them to care, they don't care.

Thackney,

I thought gas prices always typically fall after Labor Day and the summer driving season.

“No one cares that unemployment is never going to go below 7 or 8 %.”

Use the true U6 data; the U3 data is BS and doesn’t factor-in all the people who’ve stopped looking for work, because there is none.

It’s closer to 14%.

I would applaud you. I am disgusted that as an American I can no longer afford to eat a steak because the do-gooders think they’re doing good by taking cattle feed and stuffing it in our cars and lawn mowers! Because the same do-gooders want to stop fracking, off-shore drilling and exploring/drilling for oil in the damned glorious tundra! I walk around the supermarket mumbling “you have got to be fracking joking!!!” No one is talking about the food prices and the causes. No 20/20 and 60 minutes to be found on anything that is actually wrong or corrupt in this country.

The feds are pumping in a trillion dollars/yr into the economy, and there is unrest in the middle east, if gas prices are dropping it must be be decreased demand. Strange with our robustly rebounding economy.
