Today I filled up the tank on my 2017 RM. It was about 1/4 full. It cost me $31.50 CAD or $24.25 USD. Yikes.

LoL, still a discount price.... actually here in f.ckin germany.....

1 liter premium is around 2.10 Euro
1 US gallon is 3.785 liter
So... 7.95 per US gallon....
Roadmaster when near empty filling up about 5 gal.

So a full tank is 39,74 US-$.

Cu,

I was so glad that I was able to fill up at US prices in Germany.

This cost of gas to go to work will really motivate them to go to work~ Not!

My dad was a Petroleum Engineer and I still monitor his email since he passed. He had subscribed to a "Daily Oil Rig production count". The total worldwide daily number has declined the past year or so. Production down, supply chain interruptions, economy cranking back up and a supply shortage appears by magic.

Just remember. The average gas station makes about 20-35 cents on that gallon of gas if they are lucky. I just got my fuel cost price list for my store for today. It didn't go down any.

Hmmmm... what has changed in the last 2 years that would cause things to go to shit like this....
Hmm, lets see...
  • Millions more driving with a return to onsite work (Demand up)
  • Air travel back at 2019 levels (Demand up)
  • Production still decreased from 2020 and 2021 (Supply down from 2019)
  • A war in Ukraine
  • Oil companies making record profits last year and 1st quarter of this year
But sure, there are likely more reasons to point to that will fit people's agenda.

Move to Venezuela. Gas is free there. Imagine the bitching that would go on if we had to pay Europe prices...or Ukrainian prices.

The same people used to drive to work when gas was under 2 bucks a gallon.

Air travel isn't back to where it was when gas was under 2 bucks a gallon.

Yep, production is down... hmmm, I wonder why?

A war in Ukrai e would not affect our fuel prices if we were still a net exporter.

Capitalism, supply goes down prices go up.

You seem to point out everything except the real culprit. Ther are about 27% of Americans still feel that way.
