Bumpy Ride

SDP  4-30-12
It was quite a bumpy ride for gas prices this past month. In early April, prices shot up every day. Regular unleaded at this station reached $3.99/gallon for one week but never broke the $4 mark. Then, prices suddenly started dropping. Now, regular unleaded is $3.77/gallon which is 16-cents cheaper than one month ago. I wonder what Memorial Day weekend will bring.   Reminder:  One more day of voting for the 2nd anniversary SDP photo then the poll will close.  Look to the right and cast your vote now!

Ours have dropped a bit too. We are around $3.69

This is about the price we're paying also, but a road trip 150 miles north on Friday saw one place where it had dropped to 3.61.

I live near Palm Springs, CA and our gas is $4.27 a gallon. I did see ONE station where it was $4.18 this weekend. It HAS been this expensive for a long time because California has lots of gas taxes on top of the price.

Overall, I have found that once gas prices rise they do not fall again permanently. The 70s taught us that!

All of this when the oil companies, benefiting from multi-billion dollar subsidies from U.S. taxpayers, are raking in billions of dollars in profits the great majority of which they do not pay taxes on. (Sorry about ending a sentence with a preposition!).

Another interesting thing I just discovered. The Villages is about 35 miles south of where we live in Ocala. Gas in The Villages is 20 cents less. Figure that out!

Here in Tallahassee, I found it for $3.69 on Sunday; I basically did a dance!

I don't leave a lot of responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Bumpy Ride". And I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or does it look like some of these remarks appear like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I'd like
to follow everything new you have to post. Could
you list of the complete urls of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
