When Oil was at $140.00 a Barrell I was paying 4.09 a gallon. A Barrell is now selling for around $100.00 a 40% decline. Where is my 40% reduction to $2.46 a gallon.

I wish our town had gas. Everybody is out here. Gas, if they had it would be 3.79-3.99.

It does make me wonder about the pricing. When Ike headed towards our gas sources, prices shot up over 4 bucks a gallon. Over 5 bucks at a couple stores. Now the storm is gone, Our town is out of gas and prices remain below the 4 dollar level, which is great. But you would think with our area being without gas, prices would shoot over the 5 dollar mark at the 1 or 2 stores that get it. They only have gas for a hour or so and bam they are out.

And in California, we're paying less than we have in months. I think the folks in Georgia are paying more than we are now.

The shortages might be somewhat related to the anti-gouging laws in effect here in GA, NC and elsewhere. I found some regular gas this am at $3.97, and was happy to get it. I actually carried my empty gas can w/ me in case my fumes did not get me to the station and I had to walk the rest of the way. This sucks.

You better stock up on gas now. Everyone should have 24 gallons on reserve at home for crisis situations. I wonder how many people even think about it? What if the gas crisis goes nation wide? I don't think our economy can stand another hit. It could be the one thing to push this economy over the edge. Why are our gas reserves at the lowest since 68'? What's up with that. It seems like the perfect storm is brewing out there. Like I said, it could be a long cold winter for America.

I'd rather run out of gas than keep large amounts in my garage. The likely crisis would be a nice little house fire.

Georgia's now the highest prices in the lower-48. Recent years we've been about average or a little better, but that was due mostly to special blends required by the EPA b/c of Atlanta's terrible pollution, and gasoline taxes have gone up in recent years. Before any of that, Georgia used to have some of the cheapest gasoline in the country, along with New Jersey.

We'd probably have more gasoline now if the governor had not instituted price controls (under the name of "anti-price-gouging laws"). There's been a run on gasoline b/c people are afraid of running out, which causes us to run out. If price was allowed to float on supply/demand, people would only get enough to get by for a few days in hopes that prices will soon drop, and then everyone would have some gasoline available to get to work. Instead, with price controls everyone is hoarding and causing the stations to run out faster than they can get in new shipments. And then everyone complains about it. Brilliant.

I was thinking the same thing about a month ago. I remember $100 oil = $3.00 gasoline. I felt it was just lagging a bit as it sometimes does both on the up and down, but then the hurricanes hit the gulf and changed everything with refinery outages.

You're right that Georgia used to have the cheapest gas. I remember in the late 80s, I was living below Macon, and working on a job in Washington State. When the job was over, and I drove home, the cheapest gas I encountered on the entire trip was at the station around the corner from my house in Georgia.

I was telling Susie the exact same thing over the weekend. I wonder how many folks are taking their gas cans and filling them too. That is a huge fire hazard.

I hear there was a guy sitting on the side of the road with a trailer full of 5 gal cans full of gas. He was selling to anyone who needed gas. He was not gouging, I think its 20 bucks without the can, and 25 if you need to take the can with you. He was just trying to help out the folks with no gas. WOW, but what a road hazard pulling all those gas cans down the road. The highway patrol shut him down, but couldn't move the trailer until he sold all of them. So they let him sell out and told him not to drive on the roads with that trailer full of gas cans.

Just filled up.........3.99 a gallon. First time I have been able to get gas since Monday of last week. This place did not limit the purchase as with most places putting a 10-20 dollar limit. So I got a hundred bucks worth.

I have had gas in my garage for my lawn mower for years. Why all of a sudden would this be a fire hazard? Does gas combust on its own if it sits for a length of time? Where do you store your gas for your lawn mower?

It always has been a fire hazard. Sometimes the back fire off a lawnmower will make everything you own history. I have seen it happen. Its nothing new, but folks stock piling cans full of gas can be awful dangerous. You should not store gas anywhere that is attached to your home. Gas should be stored separately away from your home or garage. Not many folks store their gas like this until they see a house fire caused by a gas can exploding. Pretty horrific.



PS: I keep my gas out in the back yard in a small wooden yard box.

Think I paid $3.49 on Friday for ethanol blend. Reg. Unleaded was $3.59 in north central Iowa.

I bought premium today on my bike at $3.69. It's hard to believe you get a smile on your face when you see these prices.

Our paper has an online edition. They have started reporting which stations have gas. And which do not............You can tell by the survey most are out of gas..........

24 gallons wouldn't be a LITTLE fire.

I'm another of those who would never keep 24 gallons in my garage unless I had plans for starting some fires (where did the '24' come from, anyway???). I live in the Midwest and we are not experiencing shortages or price gouging with gas. From posts here it sounds like problems are occurring mainly in the southeast portion of the country. News reports I've read and heard indicate that much of this is due to Ike and the reliance on off-shore drilling as an oil sorce for the south/southeastern portion of the country. (I'm no expert on these matters - this is just what I've read and heard on news). jerryphilbob - you make it sound like we are looking at worlds end here???

I hope you have that gas stored safely, preferably outside and not in your trailer (in case of a leak).
