Something is going on in AZ. Diesel is MUCH more expensive near where I live.
Every time I fill up it seems to have jumped at least a dime. It's already expensive as it is and nobody really cares.
Part of that is because the panhandle borders some of the lowest selling states. Georgia and S. Carolina are two but Alabama is lower too. The west side of florida tends to have lower prices than the east side too. Prices actually drop as you head down the west side, going back up at about Sarasota and prices start going down about Ft. Pierce on the east side as you head up.
I usually make sure I fill up in Valdosta, Brunswick or Dothan and then can normally make it on one tank all the way down to Port Charlotte, over to Miami and back up to about Ft. Pierce where I will put in just a little. Greenville SC has the lowest prices in the US on the most consistent basis.

I sure hope you make that drive early in the morning. That is brutal at rush hour!
I work on Brickell Key and rented an apartment on Brickell so I can walk to work -- did not count on the humidity, I am sweating like a pig by the time I get to the office after a short 10-15 min walk.
I used to walk across the bridge to Brickell Key to get lunch when I worked in the Bank of America (701 Brickell) building. I now work a few blocks away. It is a small world.
I drive during rush hour. I have breakfast with my kids at school from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. and then drive to work. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes usually (a little longer if the draw bridge is up). I leave late enough to miss the brunt of rush hour. If I leave during rush hour it is really brutal.
Main point I was trying to make before Morethan went off on his usual off tangent diatribe trying to prove a non-existent point to no avail.
If you are to believed, you are not a child. Do you suffer from mental illness? I am running out of possible explanation for your insane posts.
You started the thread with:
'Wal-Mart Says February Sales "Total Disaster" '
You cannot be writing about your original point.
Subsequently, Sec13 gave a wrong reason for gas prices going up. I responded:
"Gas prices are up due to global recovery (increased demand) and several refineries temporarily being shut down to switch over to the summer blend of gas (decreased supply)."
Sec13 and I went back and forth a little on this. He had the sense to stop arguing the point. You came up with:
" @ your wannabe T Boone Pickens Persona."
That then started a back and forth regarding gas prices where you had an overwhelming desire to show how you can pretend to know something about a subect of which you are ignorant and make a fool of yourself. How did I take this off on a tangent, moron? What non-existant point was I trying to make? YOU, moron, picked the argument when I made a totally valid and the relevant point. I gave facts to counter this point that you are making. If you do not like being put down, don't start an argument by leading with your chin.
The thread speaks for itself. Lying about what happened is futile other than perhaps making you feel better about yourself and smoothing over your insecurities.

your boy runs it, he cant do it, results show it.
Do you have a FanofSC to English translator?
Your omission of source product (Brent vs. WTI) in this comment makes me think that you don't have a complete understanding of why West coast is more expensive.
Gas prices....the way to kill the little guy. You think rich people care what the gas prices are??? Quite a few families out there are making decisions between paying for insurance or filling up the gas tank. Not to mention that gas prices also affect every other every day commodity that people need. I have a hard time believing there is anyone in Congress or the White House who empathizes with the everyday American. If they did, something would be done today. Supply, Demand, Refineries, Taxes...all I hear are excuses. There are solutions and ones that can be implemented tomorrow, not ten years from now.
I agree that gas prices disproportionally hurts people barely making ends meet or not able to make ends meet. People that make more are not going to have their lives changed by higher prices. People making less have to make decisions (e.g. less gas or less groceries).
Just anyone missed this discussion in the thread about February retail sales...
Below is a link to an article about Wal-Mart's February sales.
From the article:
"Bloomberg reports that during a presentation at an industry conference today, Wal-Mart CFO Charles Holley said that the slowdown in sales they observed in late January was actually "not disastrous," and that sales normalized by the end of February."
As I wrote at the time, we merely needed more refineries to come back on line. They have. Gas prices are starting to drop now.
You did not like excuses. What did you want? Government to subsidize gas?
