Gas under $1/gallon

 

I just checked Gas Buddy and there is a town in Wisconsin where unleaded is $0.999/gallon. Devlan, WI.

I live near Eau Claire, WI where is recently dropped to $1.499. Too bad we can't go anywhere.

Oil futures down to $10 barrel

Oil futures down to $10 barrel for May so the big boys will cut production to stabilize the price. $10 a barrel is less than it costs it to get to the refinery (including the crude).

See story at:
https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/mexico-ends-oil-standoff...

This means gas prices will drop some more, but will soon go back up probably.

FYI: Crude was over $60 a barrel last year.

p.s. on the gas prices--Costco in PA, is LITERALLY cheaper than the Costco in NJ. Normally PA is at least 30 cents more.

NJ used be at least 30 cents cheaper, average price, not at discount places like Costco. New Jersey increased the gas tax by 23-cents per gallon around 2016 and while it is still cheaper than PA, who has the highest gas tax in the country, it is now only 10 to 15 cents cheaper normally, at least in the Phila/central-south Jersey area.

Bought gas in Mt Laurel NJ as late as January, and it was over 30 cents less than Costco in Glen Mills, PA.

Today, 4/10/20, Glen Mills, PA, is literally cheaper.

In Edison, NJ, Costco is 7 cents less on regular, and 26 cents less for premium, today, 4/10/20, v. Glen Mills PA.

It's south NJ that always has monkey business. Like Admiral Wilson being almost the same as PA all year.

What are the prices, that always helps:

Mt Laurel NJ $1.979 $2.389

Glen Mills PA $1.959 2.359

Edison NJ $1.889 $2.099

Wilmington DE $1.659 $1.859

It's Mt. Laurel NJ, south Jersey, that's out of whack

My experience has been different in the Philadelphia and nearby NJ area. My job takes me across the bridges frequently.

SHAME

In Florida right now and live next to Disney. Drove into Speedway yesterday and 2 of the three stations were shut down. Gas is $1.74.

I was the only one on the road with the exception of Disney security and a few Police cars
WDW is a very eerie ghost town.

Everyone STAY SAFE.

That's pretty much everywhere these days. A few days ago I saw this video of Philadelphia, PA taken with a drone. I don't know the day or time of day, but the areas in this video are almost never this quiet during the daylight hours. One highway through Center City can take about 3 minutes to travel in the middle of the night, during the day that same highway can take 30 minutes or more.

Cheap gas

I saw on Gas Buddy that Merritt, BC had a couple of stations selling gas for $0.699 a liter, which converts to $1.89 US a gallon.

And from the UK

Unleaded petrol is about $5.63 a gallon at the moment (£1 a litre). Lowest it has been for about 18 years!! Trouble is you can only do essential journeys, so can't take advantage of it.

$1.79 here in western North

Generaly batteries sulfate about 2 weeks

You should run about 30 minutes every week just to be safe. You can go take drive, the only exposure you might have is gassing up and the contaminated pump nozzle handle. Carry a bottle hand germ killer in your vehicle year round. We always clean up after loading Groceries at store, gassing and such and wash up at home after putting up groceries. Been doing that for many years now, I quit shaking hands in the 60's, guess I knew COVID-19 was coming.

chit chat

Chicago area still over $2.00 bucks a gallon. I now keep a box of nitrile gloves in the car. before getting out of the car put one on and fill tank. Peel it off and put in trash after refueling and before getting back in car.

Cheap gas is great, but it

Cheap gas is great, but it will sure go up as soon as we can drive again. Sure hope this goes away this summer as SARS 1 did and never returned.

an

historic deal to cut output was reached. Like anything else, what effect other than to put upward pressure.

Again, up to about 2 months ago we could buy center cut pork chops for $1.79/lb. I don't know for sure but that sounds like a price my mom would have paid in high school. I even thought isn't a pig's life worth more than that?

When it's an open market, it's not one-sided the way that some make it out to be, imho.

My experience has been different in the Philadelphia and nearby NJ area. My job takes me across the bridges frequently.

were exact prices when posted, and until March, my job too took me over the bridges daily. It is what it is, no biggie. It's not like we're trading gasoline and have to agree what the price is.

To inject some subjective comments, many of my colleagues who live in the city of Phila and worked in my office, would say, I don't get gas in NJ anymore there's little difference (sometimes it was 5 cents in Pennsauken, where it used to be 20, ten years ago, and 30, one year ago).

If we compare Wilmington to PA, nothing has changed. It's south NJ that's changed, because it's substantially more than central NJ (I consider Edison NJ to be central, funny people in south jersey call that north jersey lol)

$1.649

Where I live in Central Virginia but like some have already said, in a month from now when I need to fill up my tank next I may care.

Remember, oil is still less plentiful in the ground every second (being a finite resource and not abiotic). People should burn it based on that knowledge, not just fickle price swings.

What does this mean, just curious.

The scenario to me with oil, is similar to hogs.

If what you mean is that the price really doesn't mean a lot, I would agree, look at airports full of idle jets. Look in one's own garage and driveway, vehicles that sit idle for months at a time. There isn't any need to burn anything.

Gas under $1.00

Just purchased gas yesterday.
Prices around WDW range from $1.59 up to $1.67.

Price is going back up

It's an annual thing. As you go through spring and into summer where more people will be driving and vacations the price of gas goes up.

I was barely knee high to a grasshopper back then, but can remember it too. As nice as that price sounds though, keep in mind minimum wage at that time was $1.60 an hour.

It's been almost 2 months

It's been almost 2 months since my first reply (on March 26) and Southern California gas price maintains above $3 at some gas stations while most gas stations (in SoCal) have dropped under $3. You can't get gasoline under $2 by the way.

I don't understand how those gas stations can stay in business selling gasoline at the highest price possible while some of us have difficulty paying rent and bills.

What I don't understand is how two stations on the same corner can have a 5 to 10 cent a gallon difference AND the higher one will still have a few customers, not as many as the lower one though. And I've seen this quite a few times.

Yup I saw a few cars

Yup I saw a few cars refuelling at those gas stations that charge $3 and up. I guess money is no object to them.

I have done that too but only when I'm out of town and my low fuel warning light has been on for a long time. I don't mind spending a bit more once or twice to avoid pushing my car.

Dang It.

Maybe the net exit will be cheaper. No, maybe the next one. Shoot, I have to take this one, no matter how much it is!

Refuelled at 76 gas station on April 19 at $2.64 per gallon for a total of $39.

325 miles later (May 20), low fuel warning light switches on. It is time to refuel but the price is the same today.

that's why wife is hitting gasbuddy on the phone

My favorite stations are ranging from 1.29 to 1.69. Granted, one of them is dropping off of the list because they are charging $0.15/gal more for credit card and it's easier to go somewhere else that charges the same as their cash price while not having to go inside.

I used to be able to hit MORE button when I search gasbuddy.com and it keeps expanding search radius. I can no longer hit MORE button to get more search hits. I miss that feature.

Check and see if that station charges the surcharge for Debit Cards. A debit transaction, using your pin, is the same as a cash transaction. It wasn't have to wait for a clearing house and the dealer gets his cash at the end of the transaction.

Here in Northern IL I see

Here in Northern IL I see the prices are creeping up a little but still reasonable. I filled up my truck at the start of lockdown and my mileage for gas has been measured in gallons per month lately.
