How is the fuel price where you live?

Boy howdy that's a lot of gasoline ! .

When I was a pump jockey we had three old battered pumps in a row on the island and gas was .50 cents / gallon, our old pumps didn;t go above .35 cents / gallon so we sold it my the half gallon and many customers wanted to argue endlessly after getting their gas but before paying of course...

I remember Price Club, I thought it wonderful but never had sufficient funds to shop there .

So many things have changed .

Before I left CA I had an Arco station just blocks from me. That's just about all I used for 18 years. Bikes, cars, lawn equip, etc. Never had any issues. I've had plenty of people tell me to avoid Arco, but I never saw any reason to. I think they're the 5th largest oil company. Or, were.
I tested the E10 gas against non-ethanol gas as far as mileage goes just a few weeks ago. No difference. Definitley not worth the extra .30 gal.

As often is the case, if a thing works for you, go with it .

In my case I was talking about older carburated engines .

Even then as long as the engine was used almost daily few problems occurred .

Other than owning our puppet in chief, you're right. The Biden crime family took in $11 million while and just after Joe's stint as VP, mainly from China, Ukraine, and Russia. I'm sure he doesn't owe them anything in return. That's just a start

China has nothing to do with it .

The Biden admin started restricting oil production in the US on day one. And recently pulled 3 huge oil leases. IIRC, 2 in AK and 1 in LA. Or vice versa. That cannot even be argued. So provide us with some of your un-willful ignorance. Now why don't you look into the big push for electric cars. BTW they aren't "green" or enviro friendly..at all. I know cnn tells you differently, tho. Look into where most of the minerals and such, that have to be mined, come from. CNN won't tell you that either.
Come on, give us some of your old guy "truth."
Or you can just spew some Bible passage, or some nonsense, like Kirby does when he can't come up with an intelligent response.

You gonna tell us that none of the shit going on is Bidens fault too? 42 year high inflation, baby formula shortage, illegals flooding the country, not to mention they were being scattered, by aircraft mostly, throughout the country, WW3 on the horizon, etc? The shit-head-in-chief said that he is going to unite the people, unite the country, the buck stops with him and on and on...... Then he promptly blames anyone and everything.....like a real leader.
I know that you'll dodge and deflect....but, can you at least tell us one, maybe 2 things this rotting bag of oatmeal has done for the regular, middle class citizens of this country. I'd love to hear it.

Gas Morgantown WV....4.599 ($5.00) a gallon.....biden is dragging our country in to the third world they want...how does someone who did nothing for 47 years get in this office? Was President Trump's below $2.00 a gallon gas that bad?was bringing jobs back to America that terrible? Was cutting the ties that bound us to foreign dependency so horrible?This administration is a catastrophe,a joke,and an embarrassment to our country.

I want someone to tell us what positive that he's done for the regular folk. He hasn't taken responsibility for anything. It's funny that during the Trump admin, EVERYTHING was the fault of the prez. Now??? Meh.... So, if it isn't Xoes fault, it is still happening under his watch. And he's doing nothing to reverse course. Whether its incompetence or something else, then he needs to go. He's obviously not all there. He's been a lying, career corrupt, criminal politician, butt-fu****g the US taxpayer for at least 40 years. He's not a very intelligent man, and he's a damn racist and bigot. His voting record and some of the stuff that he has said over the years, proves it. The racist stuff that Trump has been accused of saying/doing pales by leaps and bounds, to what Xiden has actually done and said. NOt to mention he's voted for every war/conflict throughout his entire career as a corrupt shitbag.

The shitbag said this just the other day.
I'm sure that Kirby will poo-poo the source as it doesn't fit his narrative. But, the quote is all over the 'net and print news.

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” he said at a press conference after his meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Now, the moron in chief is gonna empty the national diesel fuel reserve. WTF?????? What's gonna happen when winter starts to set in? A lot of people (like in Michigan) need fuel to heat their homes. Not to mention, Michigan, Kirby, you're rolling blackouts are coming soon as the weather warms up. You voted for this shit..own it!

Tell us one + thing he's done. And don't go with "he got Trump out" Cuz he didn't. His pals in DC and their pals in the "news" bidness, and with the help of the cheating DNC (they have a history of cheating. I'm sure you have no idea) all contributed to Xoe getting to the white house, while he hid in his basement. 330 million people and we end up with this creep. Good grief! All of this cuz of the manufactured hate for one man. Pretty damn pathetic.

Politics aside, I paid $6 a gallon for regular today which kinda put things into perspective. My 'ol van gets 10 mpg which means it costs me 60 cents a mile to go anywhere. My Honda fit gets 33 around town, which costs me about 18 cents a mile to drive the thing. My Harley gets 45, which costs me about 15 cents a mile. My 140 CT70 gets about 80, which costs me about 8 cents a mile. My monkey is the champ getting 130, which costs me under a nickel a mile. I now find myself just grabbing a backpack to run errands around town, gas prices be damned. We're fortunate this isn't the vintage Cadillac forum.

I'm kinda surprised that I dont hear about fuel trucks getting hijacked. Years ago we did have out here that there were racecar trailers parking over the gas station tank filler caps. Turns out they had been converted to pump the gas from the underground tanks.

I worked the gas station at Costco. We kept those tanks locked and alarmed. A tanker holds about 8000 gallons, or about $50,000 retail. That's not a lot of money based on the amount of risk, but these days, who knows.

Yep ;

In the 1973 shortage a Chevron station owner and son hijacked his delivery and dumped it into his tanks then thought they'd get away with it.....
