Here We Go

Gas was "only" $4.09 at a station in Ohio so I topped off my big van and then also my wife's minivan, thinking prices might climb more today. Then I got home and saw this....



This is more psychological than anything else but watch oil prices scamper upwards today.

It might be time to break out the Ron Paul "It's happening" gifs....

  1. Hit $4.09 a gallon down here in South Central Ohio along the Ohio River last night. Could see another increase next week. Just wait till summer!

  2. Our Government has lost it's way, no longer representing the people. The USA is responsible for all of the BS going on, the proof is out there. Jimmy Dore has a great 30 minute video of how we got to this point on YouTube that is worth the watch. https://youtu.be/1H0rCqaGtJw

    I think back just 3 years how great things were going and now we are here on the brink of a global disaster. I believe this all started with Trump appointing his 3rd Supreme Court pick and his re-election was almost a certainty, the Left and their global allies set into motion operation COVID which has led us to this point. Mass formation psychosis is real and is being spread by every major network, social media, local news stations, am/fm radio, podcasts etc.

    1. I read that article too and it sounds ominously plausible.

  4. I was out on sunday and gas was 1.549, last night 167.9 a liter.
    That's quite a jump.
    Diesel was 181.9 a liter. Prices won't go up in grocery store from this? Right?
    I wonder how long this can last.

    1. It is going to be a double whammy on food prices

  5. Here in the Oregon Outback (tm), this morning's posted price is $4.57. That's up $0.52 in less than two weeks. We know it's all politically generated and deliberate, but it continues to amaze me that TPTB have that much authority (whoever is pulling the strings behind the puppets). The only hope I have is that their Hubris collapses from Nemesis, and that political authority can be reversed. It's going to take a long time to fix though.

  6. Last Weds/Thurs the cheap stations here in DFW burbs (Walmart, Murphys, etc.) were still $3.29 - $3.35 and the big names were $3.59. Yesterday the cheap ones were $3.59 and the big names $3.89. I don't plan on going out today; but tomorrow expect to see them break the $4.00 mark. Problem is you really cannot store gas here - almost no houses are built with basements due to the clay soil and the climate/summer heat is brutal on anything stored in a shed or garage.

    1. For us we usually fill our vehicles 3-4 per week because we drive for a living so while we have some extra stored at home, we are at the mercy of the price at the pump.

  7. I posted in the comments section of this very blog on March 2nd, that I'd paid $5.09 the night before, which was a .10 jump over just a few days. Today, at the same station for the same grade it is now $5.59. That is just shy of 10 cents a day increase. Will we be paying $8+/gallon in a month? If we're lucky that's All it will be by then...

    1. I expect to be over $5 by the end of this week and Indiana normally is pretty low cost compared to other states.

  8. Between $3.79 and $3.99 a gallon down here in San Antonio. We are about to top $4 a gallon for the first time ever.

  9. Here in the upstate of SC, which has usually been close to the lowest prices in the country, we're up to $3.89...$3.99 in some places. Before Biden, we were down to $1.69/gal.

  10. Though it was by no means a great movie, it seems that Americathon is once again relevant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27PuuDuQNq0

  11. The American Empire is so angry about Russia invading the Ukraine that pResident Depends, or, more properly, whoever is sketchily animating his shriveled husk, has decided to cleverly destroy said empire.

    Here's a little thought experiment. Russia has LOTS of oil. Their cost per barrel to extract it is around $10 US. Suppose they offer crude at, say, a nice profitable $30 or $40 to any buyer -- payable in any currency EXCEPT the US "dollar?"

    Hmmmmm ...

  12. It's $2.20 a litre down here in Australia. So, $9.24 a gallon. You're not the only ones getting hosed.
