Reuters is reporting the Texas oil refineries could be down for up to 9 days depending on damage, repairs needed and power. that could keep gas prices up and cause them to spike higher as well.. some reports are hinting $5.00 plus per gal soon.
glad I drive fuel efficient cars..
this might get rough for a bit and I was thinking with gas prices heading down the trip to Florida and OLCC the end of the month was going to cost less.. maybe they will get back on line soon and we get back below 4.00 again....
We have been shopping at the Safeway because you earn a .20 cent gas discount per gallon each and every time you spend $50.00 in groceries. If you are going to spend $100.00 at the store, break it up into two purchases so you can receive two .20 cent gas discounts.
$3.13 (with the 3 cent discount) at Wal-Mart last night. it's the cheapest gas around usually. Over $60 to fill the tank. At least it usually lasts me 2 weeks or so with just local driving (sotres, school, etc.). But still....
DH commutes an hour to work each way. He fills the tank on the CRV every 5 days. He's going to need a raise soon just to pay for gas!
Our gas has been steady just under $3/gal for over 6 months. I've seen it go up a few cents this week with crude hitting $100/bbl. after the Egypt unrest and concern about Suez Canal. Gas will be going up. It's good to keep the tank full as this tank is cheaper than the next one will be.
So far we can still fill the Prius for under $25 and that's good for almost 400 miles. My Chevy pickup is $60 to fill every 250 miles. Needless to say the Prius gets the most elective use.
