WTF how can they keep changing like this.... I am gonna go broke soon paying for gas... Not to mention I heard close to 4 dollars???? WTF

The cheapest ive seen so far here in the Detroit metro area is $2.79, and im sure when I step out of the house today it will have floated up ever-so-slightly more.

it just bites that they raise prices when the gas they have already bought cost them less when they bought it. besides, i would think that the oil at the refineries has also already been paid for so the increase in a barrel of oil should not immediately cause the price from them to go up. but i geuss that's why the ceo of exxon got his 500 million bonus when he retired (that amounts to an extra $120,000 per day he worked for the company)!!!

Supply and demand.

Demand in China and India is skyrocketing, and that drives up the price. If you want to lower gas prices, nuke China.

Gas prices can't go much higher because crude oil prices are approaching that of oil made from corn or other renewable resources. However, expect them to continue to rise until that infrastructure grows.

Paranoia. People are adding a large risk premium to the price of crude oil based on events that have never happened, and that have a very small chance of happening.

Market manipulation by speculators and oil companies.

But mostly speculators.

You could call them war profiteers.

$6.41 a US gallon for "standard" fuel over here (about 89 US octane), more like $7 a gallon for anything better or for diesel.

I get a nice price variety since I commute through 3 states for work (just a temporary thing, thank god). PA is about $2.70, NJ is about $2.60 (with the NJ-imposed "bonus" of full service), and some parts of NY are over $3. Some places in Suffolk County have regular for as much as $3.10. I dodged it narrowly by filling up at a Hess there for $2.97 a gallon. Maybe I should be moving to NJ sted NY!

Just this morning the station I normally fill at was posted at $2.739. Last night it was at $2.699.

I expect it will go up before I go home.
