With the fuel crisis on the west coast just starting to get back to normal, the east coast is undergoing a major catastrophy. This summer the midwest had their crisis. The only place that has not been really affected this year is the rocky mountain area. With the current blizzard conditions in Montana, N. Dakota, do you think this is the area that will put upward pressure on the price of gasoline?

You need power for the pumps. It will take a awhile for the coastal areas to recover from this storm.

I don't recall any crisis here in the south east ;-)
The EAST coast isn't in a crisis, just the storm hit area.
There will always be regional differences do to regional dynamics and conditions.
You paint with rather broad strokes, my friend.

It is hard to predict exactly what mother nature will do at any given time.

>>...the problem is sufficent delivery to the east coast.<<

Coupled with needless price controls; i.e., anti-gouging laws.

CactusBob does have a point - BioDiesel (B-100) can be run in the older diesel engines, but one major drawback is that it is sensitive to the cold.

Feel like you have no control ?

you can do something about it , your next car or truck should be a older diesel

learn about and make your own fuel , WVO , bio-diesel , VO .

you don't have to be a slave to someone else

it takes years and a lot of work but it's worth it

but it is work .

so ....how much do you hate fuel prices ?

I think there is always something out there that could potentially affect gas prices. Just have to go with the flow of it and hope for the best.
