    Default gasoline questions

    Ok, I did a search and did not find what I am after.
    Does anyone know of any govt angecy or company that has forcasts for gas prices for the next few months.


    Also what is wrong with the state of kansas. I now work at a hardware store near the state line. I ventured over to missouri to buy gas and it was 12 cents cheaper.

    I now want to live in missouri.

    Your state to state price variation is due primarily to different state gasoline tax rates. Place where the gas tax is high, usually offset with a low tax on something else. Pretty much a wash in the end.

    The nightly news recently reported that OPEC has plans for our gas to be $4.00 a gallon by this time next year. I hope they are wrong, but if it's that high in London and other places that are a lot closer to the oil wells, I won't be surprised if it happens here. I payed $2.29 for diesel the other day.
    There goes the neighborhood.

    Our gas prices in Missouri are a little cheaper due to less taxes, like Dennis said. But we have personnel property taxes on vehicles, so it does all come out ion the end

    They had a "gas sale" the other day at the highest priced station in town...the "sale" price was $2.19 And to think when I started driving a short 10 years ago, it was 99 cents a gallon...

    Won't happen, if it is $4 here, it would be around $10 in europe with all of their taxes, and they won't let that happen. The North Sea still has plenty to be drilled, OPEC won't push too hard.

    I've always thought it was funny how people will drive to the next town or state even to get gas cheaper. It's really silly I think. Even for the larger trucks which take 30-40 gallons to fill you might save yourself 5 dollars.

    i.e.

    *Gas is .12 cents cheaper in 1 town over ($2.00 instead of $2.12)
    *It's 5 miles to and from that gas station
    *Your truck gets (a liberal) 20 MPG

    So you fill up 40 gallons, you saved $4.80
    You also burned half a tank of gas to and from the station.
    So at $2.00 a gallon that cost you $1.00 (plus time) to make that trip.

    Total savings = $3.80

    Is it really worth it?
