How 'bout those gas prices?

Just saw $5.099 per gallon for regular gas at my local station. Hope it's temporary...

I hate to say this....... It will go go back down but nowhere near where it was at. Here in Louisiana we are averaging $4.20 a gallon for regular. $5.00 for diesel.
People at work have been carpooling and I have been ridding the bike more now that it’s getting warm and dry.

Gas prices seem to be going down slightly but as stated before I do not think they will return anywhere near where they were. The new normal.

Friend from S.F. sent me this last week. I'm so glad I don't have to commute there any more!
This was back when prices were in $6.50 range. It's now...

Gasoline prices typically trail spot-price of crude by about 35-45 days. Which peaked mid-June, so prices have been dropping at refill stations. Currently stabilizing around $3.99-4.49/gal for 87-oct.



Last time crude went over $100 was middle of 2014, but I don't recall unleaded being this high.

Here in central Louisiana gas prices have gone down to $3.00 but diesel is staying at $4.50 a gallon. My friends with diesel trucks are now considering selling and going back to gasoline.

Having a bike has saved me so much money. Taking my KLR instead of my SUV saves me $150 a month in gas. I drive 40 miles into work and 40 back. It adds up very quickly!

How about those used bike prices?

See people asking serious cash for used bikes, sometimes close to what they cost new.... 10 years ago

Diesel trucks are now being sold dirt cheap. Not a good time to sell or buy a diesel.

Gas here is now $2.75 a gallon while diesel is at $4.50a gallon. Glad I stuck witha gas truck instead of diesel like my buddies.

I paid $5.15 yesterday. Gas station across the street was $5.47. I'll cross the street for $.30 a gallon and a nearly-empty tank.

We have been around $3.90 for a few weeks.

Would like to see diesel come down a good bit. Would be nice to get the heating oil tanks filled up at a less than ridiculous price

Gas prices are tolerable here right now but only because of the state and federal gas tax suspensions. Not all states are doing this but it obviously can’t be sustained forever.
