The corn crop has come a cropper. Guess the price of gas is going up. Huh?


Yup, our gasoline in this state normally has about 10% ethanol. Noticed some of the local stations are slowly reducing their prices, one penny at a time. This is after the prices went up 10¢ in one "fell swoop"...

Yikes, a large number of the local stations have raised their prices to $3.74. Prices have risen about 25¢ a gallon for many stations the last month.

Really helpful when this area depends on the tourist trade for much of their profit during the summer.

I'm trying to figure out how come the fuel prices have increased. Oil prices have been bouncing between $88 and $92 a barrel. Ya think the speculators are having their fun? Looks like the price right now is $91 and change. Gasoline prices range from $3.74 to $3.79 around here.

We jumped 15 to 16 cents in Central Florida. I heard there is a shortage due to refinery problems and pipeline problems in the midwest. Now I heard that a weird looking rare beetle is going to delay the Keystone pipeline for up to a year. They are going to have to relocate the beetles. How would you like that job?

Don't get me started, Bumpy. Corn crop is devastated, yet EPA mandates a huge percentage of it to go into ethanol production. That will force other grain prices up even more. People in third world countries will die of starvation in even larger numbers than they already do, all so that the EPA can continue with its radical economically destructive behavior.

Mod, can I say that?
