California prices rose by more than double the national average, with an increase of 11 cents for self-serve regular since Nov. 3, Lundberg said.

Well if you weren't sniffing it you'd have noticed the price went up well before the election.






The dems in PA are already starting work on legislation with a large gas tax increase.

don't blame me, i voted for Lynn Swann. but only because i thought she had a cute name.

and i paid $2.05 the weekend before the election and now we're at about $2.20. however, tho it might fit neatly in with my darker political conspiracy fantasies, i'm not convinced that any group has the ability to manipulate the gasoline supply chain for months on end.

The last tank of gas I bought was $2.02. Maybe Denver just lags behind in price changes and it will start to go up this week or next. In fact the DOE data suggests just that. Last week the rest of the country's gas prices went up anywhere from 1.9˘ in New England to 6.8˘ in California, but in the Rocky Mountain region our prices went down 2˘ (as of right now the data is nearly 7 days old). Hard to tell if politics has anything to do with it.

Not at all. I paid $2.59 at a discount station today in CA and am wondering why since we have lots of wells within 10 miles.

Actually I know why, It's because our shit county has fucked with the oil companys since day one. It seems that now it's their turn to get even. Get used to it as we are here.

Hey Jack,

Ever heard of earth day? It started here (Santa Barbara) and our wonderful county gov. has been making it extremely hard for any oil company to do anything since then. It seems that we have millions of barrels of oil here but the shits in control of this county are into blackmail and have been soaking the oil companys at every chance for fees and weird taxes and have been able to almost compleatly stop production.

This wouldn't be so bad for me if my (the north part of the county) got any benefit from their extortion.

Even though I'm getting screwed too, I have no trouble with the drilling outfits trying to make a buck. After all, everything our gov adds on is just another expence that we have to expect that will be added on to our gas prices.

What do you pay for gas anyway? I see no reason that I should be subsidizing your low prices just to carry the enviro whacko banner foward.

What do you pay for fuel anyway?

Today my price just went up to $2.69 for the cheapest regular.

There is so much oil underground here that it seeps up out of the ground and small amounts wash up on our beaches. The Chumash Indians used it to water tight their boats for hundreds of years. If some of it was pumped out it would relieve the pressure.

Now it is called pollution by the enviro freaks and as usual they are out for blood (more money for themselves).

Default Countdown To a Critical Election

Gasoline Prices in Steepest. Drop. Ever.

Jonathan Spicer

The average retail price for a gallon of gasoline in the United States plunged more steeply than ever over the last two weeks as the economic slowdown weighed on crude oil and drove consumers off of the roads, according to the latest nationwide Lundberg survey.

Prices will likely slide more, but at a slower pace, following the "extraordinary" decline this month, survey editor Trilby Lundberg said on Sunday.

"The drop is unprecedented."

They do not. They wish oil would go to $300 a barrel. I say they are getting strapped over a barrel now. Hopefully for quite some time!

ap: "Oil Jumps to Near $64 on Higher Asian Stocks"


now that the election's over oil can return to its stratospheric highs.

experts expect a $200 barrel as the new baseline in 2030.

meanwhile it climbed thru $63 today.

wow that is cheap..
it has become a little cheaper over here but nothing like that !

I guess motorists will benefit for a short while until there is a holiday..by then it will be back over $100 a barrel.
