I had to go to a Doctor Appointment some 25 miles away and watched prices at the stations I passed go from $3.589/gallon all the way down to $3.229/gallon but not in any rational manner. They went down and up almost at random between those two prices often at stations separated by less that two miles from one another traveling mostly on interstate expressways.


Ohio has always struck me as weird in terms of their prices versus others. I use the turnpike along the south side of the lake fairly often, and it has crazy prices by default of a captured market, but sometimes Columbus is quite reasonable as well as the I-70 corridor, and other times just as bad as everywhere else. Except Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania seems to always be awful. I usually fill up in Ohio, try and avoid doing it in Pennsylvania, and then hit Ohio again on my way west.

During a chaffeur job for the wife last night, I was required to roam north of my usual stomping grounds. Noticed that prices for gasoline seemed a bit higher where I was, and paid closer attention to all fuel prices all the way back. Turns out, while the prices to the north were higher in general, it appears to be that there has been some backsliding of Go Brandon policies responsible for prices going down in my previous reporting. I would say there has been a + $0.05-$0.10/gal uptick in local regular unleaded since the lows I last reported.

It is obviously Sleepy Joe's fault. He has somehow managed to drive the price of crude higher over the last month, resulting in higher prices. The insidious plan was undoubtedly contained on his laptop. After the political party that can't shoot straight figures out how to vote in a leader (at least it occupied them enough so they didn't send out a smoke signal for help to sack the Capital on the 2 year anniversary of the last time they tried out that tactic) maybe we can move on to more interesting political topics like Sleepy Joes plan to deliver dropping gas prices in time for Christmas, but allowing them to rise the month after, for some illegal reason or another.

Upon a recent reconnoiter within the last day or so to firm up the recent increase in the neighborhood. After inspecting the usual stations, I'd estimate that local prices i.e. those I've been checking before, are up somewhere between $0.10-$0.15/gal regular unleaded.

Stop Brandon, stop!

More pain at the pumps in 2023

Declining refining capacity becoming more important factor in high gas prices.

The price of regular gasoline in the U.S. is more expensive than year ago levels, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), AAA Gas Prices, and GasBuddy. In its most recent gasoline and diesel fuel update, which was released on January 23, the EIA pegged the U.S. regular gasoline price at $3.415 per gallon. The fuel update highlighted that this figure was $0.092 higher than a year ago.

And of course it is way more expensive then the day Biden took office.($2.17/g) And now that they have depleted the SPR they can't sell that oil again to China so now market forces come into play and we can expect $4.00 or even $5.00 gas in the next year or two.
I'm surprised the Democrats don't realize that that is going to cost them a lot of votes come 2024.

Ahhh, the old Blame a politician game, like a demented pedophile somehow controls the world's oil price. I can just see him now, sitting in the oval office plotting the demise of the American project. Ha Ha Ha

Of course I blame that one politician that has control over the last marginal barrel of the world's oil supply.
His dream of replacing fossil fuels is OK but he forgot, not surprisingly considering his declining mental ability,to get the alternative up and running before cutting off the working supply. ,
