Gas Prices Still Rising
>snip<
``We've set a new price record in Florida for unleaded - exactly $1.80 for unleaded for the state average, $1.95 for midgrade, and premium is $1.98,'' Laskoski said Wednesday.

And we're still a month away from the peak summer driving season, which starts with Memorial Day weekend, when retail prices of gasoline trend higher. Does that mean that like California drivers, Florida motorists soon could pay $2 a gallon for the regular gasoline most cars use?

``I have to say that's possible,'' Laskoski said, ``simply because all of the conditions that have driven prices up don't seem to be changing.''
>snip<

In Palm Harbor, Mark Lourdes of Tarpon Springs had no problem with paying $30 to put nearly 15 gallons of premium gasoline into his Ford Explorer. He's cutting back in other areas instead.

``With gas prices in mind, I tried to save money on my phone bills by switching to a better long-distance plan,'' Lourdes said.

4. Just checked today..
In my part of Fairfax County, reg unleaded around $1.79, and mid to high premium around $1.89 and $1.93.

I compared an Exxon and Shell on my way in to work and they weren't exactly the same prices, but those were the general prices.

We've seen prices this high before but geez.

8. Oil prices vs profits
Why don't we ever see articles concerning obscene profits realized by the oil companies? Based on company reports, here are just a few profit figures for 2002 and 2003; Exxon Mobil $11.5 billion and $21.5 billion, Chevron-Texaco $1.1 billion and $7.2 billion and BP Plc $8.7 billion and $12.7 billion. This begs the question, "how much profits are enough?" Ever aspect of our daily lives are dependent on these companies' products. Those profits, yes that $$Billions, come right out of our pockets.

10. be wary of ethanol
Some gas stations (like Sunoco) put ethanol in their gas which is good for the environment but otherwise bad. You'll get more miles out of gas without ethanol.

11. Rochester is about 1.80
PA is lower than NY because of gas taxes. I pity the fools who live in California.

14. Ethanol
Well, maybe where you live, ethanol is an option, here in Missouri, 10% ethanol is virtually impossible to avoid.

Prices here (for mid-grade) shot up from 1.77 to 1.88 in the last few days.

16. I ask because we're seeing record prices in FL
Our son's GEO Metro gets close to 50 mpg, and our Neon gets right at 30.

But it still hurts since my husband uses a work van and has to put quite a few miles on it daily.
