Fuel Prices
« on: May 05, 2022, 07:42:59 am »
I was at the pump yesterday and diesel was $5.19 per gallon. Gas was $3.53 
What are prices in your area?

$4.15 for regular and around $5.15 for diesel.
Last year diesel was 30 to 50 cents more than gasoline. Now it is around a dollar more. Why is that?
When I was a kid diesel was always cheaper. Now with environmentalist medaling it is way more. Every time the price of diesel goes up, everything else has to go up.

You guys pay high prices always!  Last time I was over there I was amazed at the cost of all your fuel.   :shocked:

The shocked emoji doesn't adequately portray my shock. 

We're at like $3.98 here.

Hi Ben,

Diesel over $5.00 a gallon. Boats, trains, trucks, tractors.....

Apparently, we care as much about our economy as the Venezuelans did when they were spiraling down.

I just got this:

What You Need to Know: Monday, May 9
 
The Russian invasion of Ukraine and new spending driven by the $110 billion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will place more price pressure on construction projects in the coming months, according to a pair of industry reports.

Skilled Labor Tops Economic Concerns: Despite concerns about the economy, more than half of Central Massachusetts small businesses planned to increase hiring in 2022, according to a recent survey by Leominster-based Fidelity Bank.

You can't expand without WORKERS! This administration will do anything to weaken the US further. They know that even when they get turned out of office, any new administration simple CAN'T roll it all back.

Do you think Trump Can? How long would it take?

This is kind of a neat site for tracking prices.

We have some of the highest prices in the country.  I think only CA beats us.

Thanks Sal. Diesel was $5.49 per gallon today in the Northeastern area of my State today, (closer to the Alabama Line).

Thanks for the price tracking site Kathy...
