View Full Version : $100+ to fill up!

10-25-2005, 04:26 PM
Just filled up the truck.. $3.24 a gallon.. Cost me nearly $105!
Cheapest in town, others are as high as $3.49. Gas remains at $2.59.

I put on ~400 miles per week.. Looks like I need to change my ways or I'll end up broke and on the street :o [tapdshut]

This is getting ridiculous with nearly a dollar spread between gas & diesel..

I HATE IT but not enought to go back to a gasser

I got stuck in between Austin and Houston the other night. Chevron $3.469 and $101 to fill up. Last time I paid over $100 was many years ago, filled up the 1 ton GMC 2-20 gallon saddle tanks, 60 gallon aux tank in the bed and boat 2-20 gallon saddle tanks. I can't remember for sure, but I think was around 125 gallons and $132. Dam its hell getting old.

right now they are saying gas could be going below 2$ gallon pretty soon, right now its 2.25/gal here. not one word has been said about diesel [verymad]

Around here gas is down to 2.05 and diesel went up 2 cents and is at 3.19... It sucks...

The Energy Information Administration said supplies of distillates -- which include diesel fuel and heating oil -- fell 1.6 million barrels for the week ending October 21. Analysts had predicted a drop of 800,000 barrels, according to Reuters.

Heating oil alone fell by 900,000 barrels to 55 million barrels. Despite the fall, stocks were over 4 million barrels higher than this time last year.

Some stations around here have regular unleaded for $1.999 now. [verymad]

At least my wife is happy filling up the Magnum. [eyecrazy]

The JERK oil companies have figured out that we love our diesels, and are going to make us pay for it!

Figure this: (hyphthetical)
Diesel = $3.00 Gas = $2.00

Diesel gets 20 mpg
Gasser with near equivelent pulling power gets 10 mpg

Diesel 35 gal tank = $105 fill up and 700 miles
Gas 35 gal tank = $70 fill up and 350 miles

We're still better off, but they'll probably raise diesel prices until we're equivelent to gassers.[verymad] [verymad] [deadhors] , but I'm still [verymad] [verymad].

i want your 700 miles to a tank!

Did you see the word "hypothetical"? [whistle]

On the other hand, if I drive mine right, I get almost 20 mpg. :)

If it goes down below $2.00 for gas, I will make my dad start driving my truck since he goes 2 miles to work and 2 miles home from work every day.... I go 40 miles to school and 40 miles home from school...... Start puttin some miles on the 1500 again......

$1.12 a liter here...$4.26 a gallon!!!!!

In USD thats $3.70 a gallon.

Last time I "filled up" (low fuel light was on, ended up putting in 27 or so gallons), the pay-at-the-pump cut me off at $75 bucks.
Had to finish that transaction, reswipe the card, and put in another 12 bucks worth.

This was about a month ago, when fuel was .15 cents cheaper.

I haven't let it get much below 1/2 tank since.

Try filling up a 275 hp tractor that burns 150 gallons a day and see how you feel.
Even with tax-free fuel it hurts. Can't raise the price of farm products to compensate, the middlemen who supply America's supermarkets will just buy foreign.
It's a no win situation.

Anymore when the pump cuts me off at $75 I just hang the nozzle up. No since in wasting the money. Put as little money in their pockets as I can.

But you will be back at the pump faster then the guy that put $100 in the tank...but its a non issue...we will still use the fuel and thats what they are using to get away with this.

I noticed on CNN there is a discussion about all the record profits.

I really wonder what would happen if all the big rigs parked for a week.

That ought to bring it inline a bit...but I doubt that would EVER happen.

Oil companies win...as usual
Alternatives are important now.
