    Just wondering what gas prices were in your area. Heard rumors that Springfield Ill. was at $2.79, southern Ill. was going to $3. Haven't been out of the building to find out what it is in St. Louis yet today.

    my dad owns two mobils in CT. he received two faxes stating to prepare for a panic on gasoline. the second stated gasoline in CT was going to be allocated. since a lot of the fuel around here comes from the NY harbor, prices are expected to increase due to loss of offices in NY and ban on waterway traffic right now. i guess we will have to play the waiting game.

    Refineries are being shut down due to the terrorists attacks. Simple supply and demand

    just got a report from the gas station. we keep getting faxes of price increases as i write. usually only price increases come in the morning. i think the supply and demand theory is going to hurt the price. only time will tell.
  6. It's $5+ a gal now in St. Louis MO

    Good thing I just got 1,500 gal yesterday morning

    I filled tonight at $1.43. I would expect that prices will go up up and away within a few days.

    I filled all my tanks up tonite (just to be safe...for a while!) at my local station for $1.35/gal. I was scared about all this $3-$5/gal stuff, and it all looks to be a hoax.

    Time will tell.
  10. I have just got word from a friend . If you see gas prices that are outragous, call your Attorney Genaral! Price Goudging is against the law. Report them. In the mean time I have no choice but to pay those prices.
