There was an oil refinery fire back east, and we have to add to the supply that goes back east.
Now that is what they tell us. My guess is maybe their profits went from say 10 billion down to 9 billion and they need to re-coop those losses. What ever the real story is, we should all just get used to it. It will never change.
My recent coyote hunt trip costs me a bundle. $65 to fill up the first day, $56 to fill up the second day. When I got home on the third day, it was $60 to fill up. Oh well, that's what I get for buying Chevy's 6.0L engine!!
Takes a little while longer to get from place to place, But I'm thinking about getting a good old fashioned hay burner. Of the four legged type. This fuel stuff is kicking my tail in all sorts of bad ways. 2 weeks ago we had fuel at $2.11 gal. now its up to $2.50gal. Not as bad as some of you but, still startign to eat into my pocket pretty good. Got to love capitalism adn the control the Oil compaines have over all of us. They know we will throw a fit, but cant actually do anything about it other then that. we are way to much of a mobil society for that to change.
Talk about the good old days. When I was 10-years old (1965), I distinctly remember gas was $0.24.9/10 at the local Texaco. Every Friday afternoon, I'd look under my step-dad's recliner and our couch cushions, in hopes of finding a quarter. If I was lucky and found one, or the equal amount in change, me and my buddy would walk to the gas station with a 1-gallon gas can on Saturday morning and fill it to the brim for 25 cents. We would then ride my buddy's mini-bike all weekend on that 1-gallon of gas. Thinking back, those were some of the best years of my life.
