Fuel prices


Lazy WP

Recommended Posts

I know you farmers are pretty much at the mercy of the market when it comes to buying fuel. I can pass the increase on to my costumers, somewhat, but these 20 to 40 cents swings in the market makes doing business a challenge. 
I fueled in Hastings Nebraska Friday morning for $4.36. Yesterday I was going to fuel and it was $4.68. 
It would be nice if the speculators would get out of the gas and fuel game.

Every commodity is facing uncertainty levels that have not been seen in many years. It is a very risky time for the producers of these commodities too. If you’re a speculator in a market that is having price swings like this, you’d have to be crazy.

  Don't take this the wrong way but the speculators are going nowhere.  They are in part responsible for the upward swing in grain prices.  Long term there is no market for 12 dollar per bushel wheat or 17 dollar per bushel soybeans as the consumer cannot absorb those prices long term.  The pay raises in the private sector are not there to do that.

Okay, so what is driving the markets? It’s not the so called war in Ukrain. Anyway not for fuel. Diesel was already headed up before Russia did its thing. 
I saw diesel priced $5.46 this morning. Same station had gas price of $3.64. National chain with lots of loyal drivers who fill there.

  Like I said the speculators are going nowhere so they are in fact a part of what is going on.  It means speculators will influence the markets to varying degrees.  Not sure what you are trying to get at.  Can we agree that most consumers cannot handle 4.15 gas (here) and 12 dollar bacon indefinitely?

And to add to that. 

Denver is 70 cents per gallon higher than North Platte at the pipeline.

Before taxes. 

They did this last year also. Got up to a buck a gallon higher.

Trucks from Colo and Wyoming are coming here to fill. 

Actually hauling it out faster than they can pump it in. 

It makes no sense at all. 

But the long lines and outages sure take time out of my 24 that I don't really have to give.

They are already blaming "big oil" for the increase in oil price, so, how long before the MEDIA puts the blame on farmers and ranchers for "high food prices".  

After all, the MEDIA have conditioned the cidiots that not only are farmers and ranchers "raping the land", and abusing their animals, but that they are getting rich by doing so, thanks to government subsidies.

  The blame is already on the farmers depending on what news source a person uses.  And the volume will get turned up as we head into the later part of the year.

Difference between the FOURTH letter of the alphabet, and the 18th letter of the alphabet, AND Nebraska does NOT have the stoners of Colorado's Front Range, setting the policies of the running of the state.

Agree, but to the individual who can think for himself and see through the smoke cloud, it is not working.

instead of forcing the higher prices at the pump (only assuming because I don't know what it is out there) they are hauling it in from here. 

Still higher because of transportation costs but not that much. 

Before I started hauling fuel, they used to have "zones", so if you lived in the "Denver zone" you couldn't leave and come in to the "North Platte zone" and get fuel. I wish it would go back to that. Then the people would be directly affected by their local decision makers.

And, that smoke cloud is NOT entirely made up of the brown smog that obscures Denver from view, IS it?

And you are giving the stoners of Denver and the Front Range, far too much credit for the ability to "think for themselves".

As an aside, the INABILITY to "think for oneself" IS a pre-requisite for becoming a member of the MEDIA

Guess I was giving credit to those breathing clean air looking in to the smoke cloud, not those generating it.

It won’t be long after the last coal fired power plant is shuttered that the posts will be about “the high cost of electricity”. 

shuttered is not in the vocabulary the euro pc word is obliterate .

Check the facts anything going non operational is to be permanently obliterated.

here the mines have been collapsed into the rivers and our "local" power plant is sold and under contract for cidioteville dioxins and all.

high cost will be followed shortly by,obliteration of the little producers and simply no power to be had off the grid

so you peasants cant travel to the elite utopia .oasis.

once we are moved to electrical mandated devices they will then move us to exorbitant prices for kwph so charging a car or home heating and everything else thath requires electricity will be controlled and restricted by THE MAN. Power/Control is the agenda it doesnt matter how they get it done, they just are using GREEN/Climate as a distraction to motiviate the ones that are gullible enough to believe the initiative. The rest will fight it but like the election we will lose. 

We will be forced to submit to it all someday or become martyrs but im praying the rapture comes first

Paid $3.79 at Sam's club in Allentown, PA this morning. One other private off brand station was at the same price. Every other station I passed on my 150 mile road trip today was $4.19 or higher.

i just heard on the news relief is here and going to get better by the moment - I rarely watch it but my wife decided its been 6 mos or so and thot we should indulge before wheel of fortune to check the weather - B was on there and just quoted they are down 18% since their highest price to date and should keep falling

That has to be the cheapest fuel in PA.

The gap between diesel and 87 octane gas is crazy.  Diesel shows now signs of going below $5.
