Price of Gas in your area

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
It is amusing at how excitedly happy people are that the price of gas dropped to $2.49 in our area ( at the highest, it was somewhere around $4 something).

"isn't gas cheap?" is what I hear... like everyone forgot that it used to be waaay less expensive.

When I see it somewhere around $1.99, then I'll chime in and agree, "yes, gas is a fair price now." Is that ever gonna happen?

I hear that So. Cal pays the most for gas. I am just curious to compare with others.

What are you paying for a gallon?

Wow! I just checked gasbuddy.com and about 15-20 minutes up the highway from us we've got one of those $1.99 per gallon places :roll:. The Arco EVERYONE goes to (I mean lines snaking in from all directions with no one coordinating the traffic and place-taking at the pumps) is $2.09. For the longest time I heard that we here in Bellingham, WA had some of the highest prices because we're so close to the Canadian border. Their prices are even higher and the loonie has been doing great against the US dollar, so they come here for gas. The local stations seemed to be charging what they could get from visitors and the rest of us had to deal with it.

still decreasing it was $1.96 last night......so it's now between $2.06-$1.96, which dispels the myth that it was a ploy connected with the election.

I don't know the expression you used in the first part there, but I do know our prices are a lot lower than in Europe in general. SUV's were really popular here in central Oregon, but then so many people were trying to get rid of them recently and had a hard time even selling them.

$3.79 in AK? I wonder why it's so expensive in a major petroleum-producing area.

On Nov 9th, I filled up at $171.9/gal. $16 for a fill up from just below a quarter tank :bounce: :bounce:

I can still remember paying $0.17/gal a long time ago.

Does AK have refineries or do they just produce the crude oil. Without refineries they have to ship it out and then ship it back. Lotsa oil burned for all that shipping :D

The problem with Alaska is that unlike the lower 48 states, it has a really poor transportation infrastructure. If you look at a road map for Alaska, you'll see a lot of places where there aren't any roads. For that matter, the definition of "rural" in Alaska means "off road." Roughly 30% of the state population lives in rural areas that are only accessible by water or air.

Want to buy a gallon of milk in Barrow, Alaska? It'll cost you $9.89 per gallon. A half pound of lunch meat will cost $7. A ten pound bag of potatoes costs $14.99. . Electricity costs $1.17 per kilowatt hour, 11 times the national average.

A gallon of unleaded gas in Barrow costs $10 per gallon.

Although air freight can be flown into Barrow year round, cargo can only be shipped via barges during the summer.

jbd and D.C.
we are on an island in Southeast Alaska. So our fuel is barged in. I think now we are using off a barge from several weeks ago?? But, Anchorage which is near the few refineries in the state is @ $3.09.
We actually aren't that expensive on many things, being only about 600 miles from America.But food, milk is $7.00 a gallon now and produce has went through the roof.
Since we only have 30 miles of road a tank of gas lasts me a long time. But worry about poeple with kids feeding the little dudes.
The comapny I work for sails out of Seattle area, I can really see the difference at Safeway there and here.
Hang in guys, we are gonna be O.K.! Ya betcha, couldn't resist, sorry!!

Where I live in Manor/Elgin, it was $1.99 when I filled up the other day. In Taylor (not too far way from Manor), it's $1.79. In Austin, the cheapest I saw was $1.99. Think I'll move to Taylor. :lol:

Oh yeah .. this is in TX.

Wow, and to think I "was" happy at 2.39!
As far as Alaska goes, almost nothing produced in Alaska gets processed in Alaska. So much of it goes elsewhere, processed and trucked back in hence the cost.
