Well, how about the poor idiots out in Kalifornia. Average is $3.73 out there.
Highest in the nation and they already talking about raising state gas tax even higher. https://www.gasbuddy.com/USA

More people are back working again with more money in their pockets. Confidence in the economy is higher than it has been in years.
I’ll pay the extra .20-.50 cents per gallon if it means i keep my job.

Clearly you’re not aware that everyone in the oil industry is part of a price fixing cabal of evil, and are therefore absolutely worthy of disdain.

Most of the guys I know that whine about diesel being a $1 higher trade in their $70K truck on another $70K truck about every 2 or 3 years. Good gosh.

Most of you Urban warrior deer hunters should just sell those big ol’ diesels and hire someone to haul that cottonseed and corn out to your ‘Ranch’ a couple of times a year.

I was going to do that but then my cottenseed corn dealer just raised his prices to deliver so I guess I’ll be keeping my $70k truck for 4 years to make up the difference.

I worked with a guy once that would drive 15 miles to save 3 cents a gallon, on gas.

I'm with bloodstick, I happily pay more for gas if it means I have a job.

If 20 cents a gallon, or even 50 cents a gallon determines whether you eat or buy gas, you might be living a bit outside your means or need to adjust your spending a bit.

Any time a govt has attempted to "stabilize" an industry it has crashed big time. Their last attempt was to stabilize healthcare and oh my effing lord did that work out great. Housing through Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac had the whole world lose its retirement plan in 2008. The problem with trying to make things better through govt interference is you are employing the very last people you would ever want making those decisions the power to make them. Also, mathematical laws of economics prove you cannot to any meaningful degree do so without destroying said industry.

Maybe you need to find another vehicle? I don't mind dealing with a slowdown in the oil industry but I don't want to hear you ***** and moan when gas prices are higher.

Did you do anything to attempt to save while gas prices were low? Have you traded your vehicle in for a more fuel efficient one?
