Default Gas Prices

I just drove from the Naval Academy in Annopolis Md to DFW yesterday (5-13) and the entire drive the most expensive gas by more than 20 cents was in Texas. Correct me if Iím wrong but if we produce and refine more fuel than those other states we should be cheaper. I paid 40 cents less per gallon in Tennessee than any place I found in Texas.

Maybe it depends on where youíre at or what day or what quality (brand name not actual quality) of gas you were looking at.

The current AAA national average shows Texas at $4.12 andÖ
Mayland $4.43
Tennessee $4.18
Pennsylvania $4.59
Virginia $4.28
California $5.92 (I just threw them in for grins)Ö..

Ö. and so on.

Production don’t mean as much as location and the income of said location. As with any good sold. The more money that area makes… the more they will spend on what they want

While California is higher and cost of living is higher… the wages and willingness to spend is higher…. It all washes out…. That’s why minimum wage increases do ZERO

I was in New England (Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont) last week. The fuel prices there were all over a dollar more than fuel prices in Texas.

2 weeks ago Illinois and Texas were the highest priced gas going to Rend Lake. This week going to lake Washington in MS Texas had the highest priced gas. Maybe thatís to make all the new Kalifornia residents feel at home?

Can't understand why democrats think they're helping the poor. Gas prices are about to keep the poor from going to work. Maybe that's the game plan?

I have about 15 gal gas for my mower in the shed. Due to the severe drought in my area, the grass is not growing, means I don't have to mow. Guess where my extra gas is going?

Looking at gasbuddy, just at a glance, I'm not seeing any major variance. 3.80-4.20/gal seems to be pretty common afaict. Even moving east.

I can tell you for a fact, though, for diesel, texas is still some of the cheapest around. Paid over 5/gallon for the first time last week. That $803 fillup hurt.

Picked up my 2022 F-250 April 29th from Huntsville Texas and itís got 422 miles on it. Still riding on the tank the dealership filled it up with.

Iíll ride my company car for a while.

Itís already started. Theyíve been blowing and going as hard as they can. Just canít find drill pipe and equipment needed to drill much more than they currently are. When that inventory improves then we will see a bigger uptick. Iím probably saying something you already know. If I recall youíre in O&G?

Weíve been talking about drilling more but it appears that some parts may have to be hot shot from Louisiana and thatís gonna complicate things. The closest supply house closed down that we sourced from.

I think many of those states suspended state taxes on fuel.

Considering that is where Texas gets the vast majority of it's income - sales tax and fuel tax, I doubt we will see that here. Also, many if not all of those states have significant income taxes.

Companies charge one price for fuel - it's the add ons that create the variability.

PutinÖplease go ahead and drop a couple tactical nukes and be done with Ukraine. Time to move on. Maybe we could get our 44 billion back too.

Whereas I understand why Russia is fooling around in Ukraine to induce resource draws on West. Its working well. 44 billion is on the way to sink in a hole.

Found a price mistake in Temple!

The 7/11 at the SW corner of IH 35 and Loop 363 was $3.79 for unleaded. Good thing as I was almost empty, but still put a little over 40 gallons in!

No one less was lower than $4.09!
