    I have been on the road the last week in Las Vegas, Southern Utah (Bryce Canyon) and the Death Valley region of California. The most I have paid is $3.99 for regular. The average seems to be $3.89. The highest price I saw was a Chevron in Furnace Creek, CA at $5.67 a gallon! They weren't pumping any gas when I drove by.

    Obama isn't my favorite :)lol: ) but he's got nothing to do with gas prices. It takes years if not decades for any policy to take effect.

    Stop right there, please.

    This isn't a thread about our President, it's a thread to commiserate about high gas prices and brag about having a Prius (ok, that last part is just for me.)

    Let's keep the chief executive out of it, ok?

    And Congress, and The Supremes, Red, White or Blue states, Parties, etc.

    Now, I just watched a "How It's Made" documentary made in 2009, in which they state that the (Audi) diesel engine they're showing gets 30% better mileage than comparable gas engines.

    Commentary?

    All I know is gas had dropped down to 3.889-3.949 on my way to work (passing several stations) and it was 4.169-4.179 on the way home 9 hours later. Except at one station who still had 3.889 posted and at least 40 cars waiting in line (some blocking the highway). My last fill up was Saturday (3.939) ... hopefully sanity will return at some point.

    Can I throw is out there. If we produce more the middle east decides to just produces less the price per barrel stays the same?

    It's way more complex than that. Way more. Though in the short term that could be right. Longer term, that'd probably put more pressure on prices.

    Right now CT is averaging $4.17/gal. It'll be $5 in no time. :(
