Hi hatterasjack, I really like the old Amoco logo! I'd be willing to take your advice about using gas w/o ethanol. But, the MN Legislature forces 10% to be in all grades of gas here, except ethanol-free premium that can be used in special vehicles and machinery.

Excellent comment about rising cost for repairs

Go here my friend to this topic I started: I wish I could have posted more to it, but I goofed up. It's a good start and I and others can always add more there to it.

I think we're going to get lucky again, at least a little bit, at the pump and in the stores. We should see gas, oil, natural gas and diesel all come down a bit and see some good bargains on food and other goods.

"I don't know what the current 'fleet average' is, but I find it hard to believe they can get it up to 55 in 10 years. Are they counting EVs that have incredible mpgs? My cars, all built in the 90s, get 28 to 31 mpg." Getting to 54.5 isn't that hard to do. Considering I and others can get SUVs, pick-ups, vans and crossovers up to 30 to 50 mpg, and we can get V-8s up to 40 mpg and more in some cases, getting the rest up to say 50 to 75 mpg is nothing. I know that we can do hybrids in such a way that we can get 150 to 300 mpg out of them, and even more. If those at the top can't get it done, they need to step down and move the hell out of the way! Let me and others in there and we'll get it done and quick. We don't have to wait no five to 10 years for it.

Better watch out, looks like we're headed up at the pump again. Price of oil up $7 a barrel since last night. Gas is up another five cents a gallon.

Well said on the luxury trucks. Wanna be buddies?

It's true that lower pump prices channel more money into our pockets, but the last I saw was that something like 60 percent of our additional cash is going into paying down debt and into savings. Both are great, but tend to moderate the additional cash we put into consumer spending. A bigger impact on the economy is what happens in the oil patch, primarily North Dakota, the Permian Basin, and some operations in other states. Nationwide, permits for new drilling have nearly stopped. Low prices are already forcing many smaller higher cost shale firms to scale back or cease operations, and no one knows what will happen to fracking. The ripple effect will probably spread to railroads, truck drivers, hotel maids, waitresses, etc. No one knows how far it will go. Hopefully it will not lead to too much of a downturn, but there is a lot of uncertainty here. Also, we don't know how far Saudi Arabia will go to force all shale out of business, which is certainly their goal..
