    After the deal with Iran, the price of oil per barrel dropped drastically, but we have seen in the past that other factors control the price of gas ie refineries, holidays etc. Anytime they think demand will go up. :hammerhead:

    They were claiming since we (in Florida) don't have a pipeline, we have to rely on transport ships to bring refined product to the state. And since it requires a ship under US flag and US crew working on it, there's a shortage. Claim it's cheaper to ship to Africa from the US than from Gulf Coast to Gulf Coast. Yeah, all of a sudden this is a problem :rolleyes:

    Now to get the rest of the southeast in on the game, since Colonial pipeline services most of it, they claim refinery problem. Face it. Someone gets poked in the butt every year. Sometimes it's west coast. Sometimes it's the northeast. Sometimes the midwest. This time it's the south with a bulls eye on Florida.

    I believe its $4.75 in NY state so I like to cross the border to fill up when I can, but here in Canada its up to $1.32 per litre, which works out to $4.99 per gallon, for regular gas. Deisel was $1.40 per litre which is $5.29 per gallon.
