Re: god **** gas prices!

I think Huntsville is the only place in the country that had gas prices go up more than half a dollar.

I think some local idiot started a rumor gas was going to hit 5 dollars a gallon by the end of the weekend and this morning there was mass chaos at pumps. More than half the gas stations here are out of gas.

Re: god **** gas prices!

The gas station manager told me he gets his gas from Houston and Houston is pretty much shut down. Thats his reason.

I'm sitting here at the bar at Ruby Tuesday watching the pandemonium at the Wal Mart gas station across the street. It's total chaos.

Re: god **** gas prices!

Riley just declared a state of emergency in Alabama because of price gouging.

Here are some pictures of the wal mart mark was talking about and a few others.

I found gas for 4.69 in one place here for Regular.

Whenever there was talks of snow, even an inch, people freaked out and bought milk and bread when I lived in PA. If you didn't get to a store quick enough, it was sold out haha......that sucks with all the gas price gouging, those guys should be punished for that crap. I just filled up for $3.79 87 octane in Long Beach. I hope they don't jack up the prices cuz im commuting 100 miles a day right now, haha.

$4.59 here
Yikes! that's almost as much as I was paying when I first moved to California. It hurts when you have to fill up at that price

It's ridiculous, here. I think that the grocery stores have some kind of a deal with the forecasters. Which I don't get the break and milk thing. If I know I'm getting snowed in, I'm buying tequila and beer... :dunno:

Well I just heard birmingham is already above 5.00 a gallon. My parents heard it from a nurse at the hospital. From what I have heard most gas stations around here will be around 4.60+ in the morning.

That was us this afternoon. Mama and I were driving down the main drag on Gloster St. and saw it.. 'higher than diesel? Did they put that sign up wrong?'

Then we saw the pandemonium up town.

Argh.

Re: god **** gas prices!

They reported last night that gas would hit $5 a gallon today so everyone around here went ape **** and flooded the gas stations...so everyone is out of regular again. I got gas a couple hours ago for $3.89 for 93....regular was $3.62 or 5.

Yeah, some speculator said it could reach $5 and the rumor just spread. The stations jacking the prices are just gouging right now...The price of oil is down to $100 a barrel right now, if it wasn't $5 a gallon when it was $140+ a barrel, it sure as hell won't be at $100 a barrel.

Oil falls to five-month low, settles near $100 - Oil & energy - MSNBC.com

It is just price gouging at it's finest. They claimed it would hit $5 with gustov as well, and it didn't. I didn't take the cobra to NY partly because the rigs were going to get drilled by gustov. There would be a much better chance of it going up than with Ike because Ike isn't going directly over top of the rigs like gustov did.

Re: god **** gas prices!

Yeah there was only about 2 gas stations, around here and they were packed with gas prices at $4.50 all the other stations were $3.67-$3.78 and they were empty. The funny part is 1 station had gas for $3.67 and it was empty. The station next to it had gas for $4.50 and were packed. I was like WTF
