$3.10 in Central Florida.

re: High-Octane gas. Down here, Sunoco specializes in keeping one pump of it per station for racecars and other applications. Don't know if you have Sunoco in Vegas. It's the NASCAR nation around the South.

That's all we bought in the late 60's
when gas was 30 cents a gallon.
Sunoco 260, it was racing fuel right
at the pump. We ran it in the big
high performance V8 Dodges and
Chevy's.

$80 a barrel and work crashes to a stop

8 coil crews work out of my shop.... every crew was in the shop today with no jobs on the board for over a week

Time to catch up on some preventative maintenance I guess


oil companies are not going to spend million per well to break even or even lose money bringing the oil and gas to surface.... let it AGE a bit more and wait out a increase in price.


interesting video if you have 10 minutes on a oil well drilling that went wrong

Just like gold mining, drops below 1200 an
ounce and the major mining companies
close down.

ONdealer, by my maths, that's $4.66C/gal ($4.11US/gal) for gas in Niagara Falls. With that significant of a price difference, do people regularly cross the bridge just to fill up?

Yes. I don't.

It's a two minute drive to my gas station. My gas tank holds 18 gallons, and I normally fill up 15 gallons. To save $12.30 US ($14 Cdn), I must drive 15 minutes, each way to a good gas station, plus deal with the border crossing which can take anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes, each way.

So, allow for an hour. And it costs me about 3L of gas to go back and forth, so I am only saving about $8.50 USD.

Spending an hour of my time to save $8.50 is a waste of time.

Other people do it. They may have NEXUS, so no border wait. And they have time to kill. I'll always fill up if my car finds itself in the USA and time my gas fillups to those anticipated entries.
