    Still don't see where I insinuated that anyone was JUST blaming them. I was merely providing logical reasons why the local operators reduce prices, which some here chose to ignore, only blaming them for illicit tactics when they increased prices. See the first few pages of this thread to get a nice reminder of when prices were half of what they are today. I didn't see anyone thanking the station owners then.

    There's little doubt the major oil companies get the big share of the profit pie - that shows up every quarter in those earnings reports we all hear about.

    So in the mean time....we just watch the numbers go up these days in rapid fashion. Ironically, Mrs HDTVFan just came back from getting gas on the way home, and told me it went up again 2 more cents a gallon (today alone) at her "regular station" from this morning's price. :shrug:

    Last night, when I saw my needle dip below "E", I didn't have time to stop at my neighborhood gas stations, which were charging $3.07 to $3.09. Today, I just had to pay $3.37. I lost $8 because I didn't fill up yesterday.

    For me it's below, as I read reversed!:D

    But recalling where each and every poster lives, or looking it up, even for the FP's, is a time waster. I figured out where MM lives, but forgot. Also the gent who puts in longitude. Also forgotten now. Then there's the guy on the roof, and someone who claims he knows but no one else will. Sometimes they report on the weather where they live!

    In some cases, location adds to the thread, where relevant; it's certainly not always or even frequently so. It takes only a moment to change one's profile info.

    As we know, location matters when comparing prices. Here's an updated gasoline tax comparison by state:

    [​IMG]
    Chart from these folks.

    As you can see, there is a 33.2¢ per gallon tax difference between my state, California the highest, and New Jersey, just to pick a state.

    You can also subtract the tax to get a feel for the difference in the wholesale price of gas from region to region reported here by our members.

    Prices up to $3.25 here as of yesterday. Yuck.

    Glad I save 10 cents a gallon more via either Kroger or Costco.

    According to the local news, at this same time last year...it was $2.58/gallon in our area.

    Almost everyone is charging $3.19 in central Texas. Most went up about twenty-two cents last week, in just a couple of days. :(

    Reading these reports I am not going to complain! My area (SE suburbs of Denver into rural area) just broke $3.00 last week, and the increase was less than $.10, from $2.97 - $2.99 to $3.05-$3.06

    According to the Sacramento Bee this morning:
    If most of that 77¢ one year increase holds or is a base from which the prices will continue to climb, this will have a significant impact on our economy. Chunking out an extra $15+ a fill up is a major expense for many working families. If two workers in a family do that just once a week that will be an extra $65 a month or $780 a year.:eek2:

    I hate you!!
    Just today I get the "Reserve" notice (ie, I am almost out) and see prices within a few miles of me go from $3.80 to $4.19 (hi-test, yes, but regular isn't far behind.)
