How stable are the gas prices in your neck of the woods, With a stroke of the pen the great savior has put the rise on fuel products, and added probably 25 thousand or more to the un-employment line and ticked off our northern neighbors not to mention the coming tax hike on gasoline, home heating oil and petroleum products. Here the regular gasoline prices went from 2.29 a gal. to 2.56 a gallon in about 24 hrs. Come on man give me a break.

I'm not going through this discussion again, but here's a link for historical fuel prices. I promise that either side will be able to pull data from here to further your point.

The bottom line is that the President doesn't really have a lot to do with gas prices. If you think they do, boy are your going to be disappointed by the real data.

Maybe not the rise and fall in prices but a lot to do with the supply and a independent country not reliant on foreign countries for crude. As to your research and data that can be tinkered with to justify different situations so well. Ask the European countries how they like their fuel and electric prices. Hope not but get ready as I stated 4 dollar a gal. bye mid summer hope it stops there. I firmly believe the grand scheme is to keep folks close to home struggling with day to day issues in their lives. You know total control = SOCIALISM

Just out of curiosity, are you old enough to be on Medicare?

What do you think about Medicare? Should we abolish it since it’s literally socialism? But only for the old? What about social security? That’s socialism, too.

Should we, as a nation, abolish Medicare and social security?

I mean, after all, why should I pay taxes for benefits to old people?

Gas prices will soar. Thousands losing jobs. Borders being opened to who knows what. Not even going down the gender road. In 2 days time America is well on its way to being the weak ass doormat to the world. You better learn to speak Chinese. Take some ownership of what you have down and doing instead of hiding behind graphs.

$2.09 looks like the average in my town according to Gas Buddy. I couldn't tell you how stable that is though. I fill up once every other week whether I need to or not. One of the perks of working from home - gas prices do not concern me anymore.

Truth, I get it, but it's different for us. We are a family of two so our grocery/essential/non-essential needs aren't as high as for other families. Fluctuations in fuel prices don't set off budget alarms like they did ~Katrina when I was commuting and fishing a lot. When gas spiked to ~$3.50/gallon that was very noticeable at that time filling up an F-150 and a bass boat every week. Nowadays, not so much.

I get that but from someone that goes through a tank off gas a week and more during softball season an extra $1.00 or so per gallon hurts.

Ali, I am not old enough for Medicare, but I did retire at 60, house paid for and live a comfortable life. Now as to the social security worked my ass off since I was a very young lad, worked in jobs that most folks would cringe at, built upon experiences to better my work options, paid into the social security program and now It is paying me, Along with a very nice retirement. So I suggest you go to work pay your social security dividends so I can get my check every month. Nothing SOCIALIST about it, look at it like a retirement account that you pay into. Now as to the Medicare situation how you going to like it when your party says that's all you have for yourself and family, no more private health insurance. Remember what the ho said before becoming The other idiot behind the first one. I will assume you are a younger age, that demands everything be given to you on a silver platter, I want it I want it now and I do not want to work for it, you know the I am entitled crap, The immigrants have or are going to edge you out buddy your idiotic president will see to that.Your kind will be as lemmings when this **** is finally established bye the democrats, only what 3 days and done started the crush on the country. I like you Ali just as the rest here but all best pull their heads out of their As!!! and realize what's happening.

Certainly. I've been there. I saw gas less than $2.00 around here at some point recently, but can't recall what it was. Our current $2.09 is definitely higher, but still seems very cheap at the moment.

You guys are really worried about a gas increase effecting a softball season and fishing,how about the folks that need to go to work and support a family you know rent, mortgage, feed and dress the kids maybe a bit left over to rent a movie that sort of thing.

So Social Security and Medicare is not a form somewhat of Socialism ?? Interesting concept . Didn't Democrats create them both? Funny how your views change as we age !! The Government takes your money and you have no choice as to how it is "invested" , I think I should have some say in it. Can't have it both ways , Bingy !!!

^^this^^ Sigh...most folks on here just don’t get it. As to the keystone ...yeah, bummer (worked w TC a bit over the years, good folks), just means we’ll truck/train more. And, if we get a bit more lift in crude prices more US workers/companies in the Bakken can get back to work. Covid is raging...tough to schedule reliable head counts on a rig (land or sea) when folks are getting sick left and right.

Also, you wanna see a crisis? A sustained sub US $2 pump price will leave the global low priced producer as the last man standing.....

In what part of the country did prices go up 27 cents in 24 hours. Fantasyland??
I bought gas 2 weeks ago and it was 2.20. I bought it today. It was 2.25. Lower Upstate NY.
Gas prices have been steadily rising, with a short level off in between, since mid-May of 2020. All while Bone-Spurs was president.
Shouldn't you be railing against the Retrumplicans for that???

Gas prices went up to 2.96 (US average) in June 2018. Where was the outrage then? For comparison, they are currently at 2.38 (US average). Spare us you fake outrage...

PA gas prices went up an average of less than 2 cents over the past week. So like I said, Fantasyland.

18 cents over the past month and up 74 cents since April.
Once again, where is your outrage at Bone Spurs and the Retrumplicans????
