This is a topic that should be monitored AND discussed as we watch gas prices go up and the domino effect...

In my area, BP is selling regular gasoline at $3.19 per gallon.

NORTH CAROLINA GAS PRICES (Look for your state's gas prices at this link.)

Ah, well, here in my town, the gas at the corner is 3.02 per gallon for regular. But the average for the state is about 10 cents a gal cheaper. We have this fantastic thing here where the three gas suppliers all agree with each other and set the price, regardless of the market and we all get screwed and have to pay whatever the stations post. I can drive about 30 mins west and get gas for at least 10 c cheaper, sometimes up to 20 c per gal cheaper. It really pisses me off. The owners of these three gas suppliers each are members of the local governments, one is a county supervisor, one a city councilman and the other I can't remember at this moment, but he's something. Its a deal that has been going on since I was a kid. Ahhh, the good ol' boy system at its finest.

The not readily obvious effect of the above prices is the cost of diesel. Diesel fuel prices impact the cost of everything we buy since it is the lynchpin of delivery transportation.

[url=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12400801/]Pump prices hit a new record high
Crude briefly tops $109 a barrel as dollar continues to fall

[/url]

NEW YORK - The cost of filling up the family car jumped to a record high Tuesday, adding to the challenges consumers already face with falling home values and rising food prices.

Gas prices at the pump rose overnight to a record national average of $3.2272 a gallon, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. That's a tad higher than the previous record of $3.2265, set last May.

A year ago, rising demand and a string of refinery outages had raised concerns about supplies. Now, the soaring price of crude oil is the culprit, propelling gas higher even though supplies are at 15-year highs.

The cost of diesel is forcing the 18 wheelers out of business because of a combination of a lack of demand for their services and the cost of supplying their services.

So the elite get 18 wheelers for pennies on the dollar. Nothing happens by accident.

I know a guy who has forty five 18 wheelers sitting around. They are working skeleton crews.

Did I mention that I don't trust the elite?

They are not all idle. Just a lot of them.

I think the "kick their ass, take their gas" crowd would have waxed less enthusiasm if they had known what I knew would happen.

Reduce Your Driving Costs by 25% or More

The cost of commuting, running errands, or vacationing by car has risen sharply with higher gasoline prices, but you can significantly lower your driving costs with these gas-saving tips:

Don't drive a gas guzzler. Do you really need that SUV? Six cylinders instead of four? How about that big pickup truck?

Keep your car properly maintained and tuned. A poorly tuned car can use more than 25% more gas.

Use steel-belted radial tires. They increase gas mileage up to 10%.

Don't use high octane gas unless your car is pinging and knocking or you have a high-performance engine and the manufacturer recommends premium gas.

Check your tire pressure weekly. For every pound of underinflation, you can lose up to six percent in gas mileage, so if your tires are five pounds underinflated, you'll use up to 30% more gas.

Don't top off your tank when pumping gas. On a warm day, gasoline expands and can overflow.

Don't warm your car up by letting it idle. The engine warms up faster when driving than it does when idling, and idling wastes about a quart of gas every 15 minutes.

Save fuel by combining errands into one trip and avoid backtracking whenever possible.

Wasteful driving habits can double your fuel consumption. Develop gas-saving habits, such as:

Always accelerate gently.

Watch traffic ahead of you so you can anticipate slow-downs and avoid stops.

Coast up to traffic jams by lifting your foot off the gas pedal instead of approaching at full speed and slamming on the brakes. It takes 20% more gas to accelerate to normal speed from a full stop than it does from four or five miles per hour.

Don't drive too fast or too slow. It takes 20% to 30% more gas to drive at 70 mph than 50 mph.

Maintain a steady speed on the highway. Avoid getting stuck behind slow cars where you have to slow down to their pace and then speed up to pass.

Food prices are real problem. They will start orbiting this year due to:

1) Fed printed so much money they refused to print the results. This amazing expansion in the M3 money supply is a guaranteed inflationary engine.

2) Cost of fuel effects the price of food.

People spend a lot more on food than gas.
