Don't Look Now...
 
...but gasoline and diesel prices are creeping up on $3/gallon again.

Shows that current US average price is equivalent to the summer peaks, which is unusual. All else being equal, I thought prices usually slumped after the summer.

Looks like we'll be seeing quite a few more members on the forums!

We'll see!

I think prices have to top 3 bucks - big psychological price point - in the US before we'll see any noticeable change in the amount of people around here.

Traffic has been remarkably steady spring, summer and fall. (Even with the price of gas having gone up from about $2/gal since April.)

Where the heck did they have sub-$2 gas? Not in these parts...

Last winter it dropped to $1.39 a gallon here.

I do believe that the general populous is desensitized to gas prices again and you're right in the fact that $3 might be the new panic marker, or even $4 per gallon :eek:

I remember when people :eek:'ed out over $2 per gallon gasoline... :turtle:

I agree with Tom. I don't think we'll even hear much when it hits $3 again.

Usually, but they've always got some lame excuse. They said in the paper today that it is because the holidays are approaching.

See what happens when "hyper" miling goes too far? .. even the gas tank fails. :rolleyes:
