Record High Gas Prices?
 
I was just wondering I anyone has been seeing any record gas prices in your area? Pittsburgh is at $3.19/gal that is 2 cents short of the record high hurricane Katrina spike in 2005 of $3.21 (it only lasted a few days).

Just about everyone will be seeing records this summer it is just a matter of time.

I know darin told me he just spent the most ever for gas, *shrug*

I filled up about 2 hours ago, and 3.19 was the gas price, but I got it at Buy Low and my mom works there. She found and got 5 coupons off 15 gallons of gas and I ended up saving 65 cents per gallon, making the gas price like $2.56 a gallon.

So basically I've figured it out, go there to buy stuff, save more money on gas, and pay significantly less for gas than I would normally. It's a brilliant plan :thumbup:

I am usually pretty conservative with my gas price forecasts. Here it goes:

USA average will be consistently in the $3.40 to $3.60 range from May to September. Possible near $4.00 spike (that won't last too long). Oil will continue to be $100+ a barrel.

I cant predict 2009, but it doesn't look good. I don't know if the election will keep gas prices artificially low this summer either (it may be a possibility).

The price in Regina SK this weekend was $1.139 a litre ($4.328 a gallon), still a ways away from our record of $1.279 a litre ($4.860 a gallon) last summer. More incentive to ditch my cars and live car-free soon! :) I filled my tank 7.459 gallons today for $32.

Let's see... 23 gallon fuel tank in a Jeep Grand Cherokee. That would be a $99 fill for a vehicle like that, yikes!

A fair few Canadian drivers I've spoken to lately are mentally preparing themselves for $1.50 - $2.00 a litre ($5.70 - $7.60 a gallon) gas this summer. We're sure optimistic aren't we?

The recent spike, for the US, is a result of a refinery explosion about a week ago - that on top of the normal cycles of bad oil news etc. I believe the explosion was Feb 18.

Prices jumping a dime today, from $3.39 to $3.49. Decided they're only going to go up for a while (but I could be wrong) so filled up car, pickup, and a few gas cans. Spent $140. :( Good thing I won $40 at the casino! :)
