Hard to agree when the graph shows the price of gas dipped slightly between 2001 and 2003 and then really started to go up in 2003 with the other obvious dip between 2006 and 2009 which was probably due to the economy tanking. Too bad the graph doesn't include through 2012 which we have all been focusing on in this thready.

Here's one through 06/2012 showing crude oil pricing adjusted for inflation. It should track (change) the same as gasoline.

I think the word SKY has been mention on this thread only once and that was "I filled up my Sky with gas today"....

This may be in the wrong category, but I don't think it's been hijacked. It has pretty much followed the original topic all through the thread.

Perhaps it belongs under General Off Topic, but it has been interesting. Gas is probably our biggest expenditure. 15 or so fill ups and you've spent the same cost as a Ho-Flow cat.

Agreed, nothing at all to do with 9-11.

I've actually stopped driving my Camaro since it only gets 14 to 16 mpg.

Gas prices have nothing to do with unrest in the Middle East?

LOL, nah gas prices will continue to go up and up and up so take the steps necessary to reduce your use of it if you can seems to be the intelligent thing to do! Complaining about it won't feed the bulldog.

Expect a turnaround from the downward trend very soon.

Unrest in the Middle East is not 9-11. They are related, of course, but 9-11 happened here, not there, and was not directed at a refinery or other oil or gasoline related installation. So it didn't impact prices.

Look at 27Rings' chart. Gas prices went down through 2001, and continued the trend into 2002. There was no upward spike after 9-11.

Prices have come down a bit lately and the trend seems to be continuing. Gas prices are still to high!. But again, they probably will probably remain high and never come down. So perhaps you should relent and drive it again before it rots like many boats do sitting in driveways unused. At least fill it up and add a generous amount of Stabil if you're not going to drive it. Otherwise it may cost you even more if and when you do decided to use it again.

We are still living with the economic repercussions of that event.

That may be related to the Stock Market being closed for a week and then dropping 685 on the day it reopened.








Heading out to fill up. The VUE gets regular and the SKY RL gets premium at $3.49.

From Kiplinger's Personal Finance...

Quote:
Then: $1.53 per gallon gasoline/$27.66 per barrel oil (Sept. 10, 2001).

Oil is a commodity with a volatile history. Prices are often driven by global demand, the stability of producing nations and the whims of speculators.

In the days after 9/11, the price of West Texas Intermediate crude rose 7% to $29.59 a barrel. However, oil quickly retreated as fears of economic slowdown trumped worries about scarce supply from the Middle East. Oil prices were little changed on the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

$3.79 per gallon for Premium at Valero this morning.
Even the better quality Union 76 is now $3.89.
This despite the conflict in Gaza
