    US crude oil production is down 40% due to Texas weather. Some refineries are shut down. Pipeline from Canada was cancelled. $3 gas may become $6 gas. Now add Green government factor. Electric boats powered by solar in a snow storm are coming to a marina near us.

    AB068C9B-002F-441D-BB37-36BE133BB7A9.png We do all of our grocery shopping at Kroger. We usually end up getting 2 to 3 dollars off per gallon every month. You can only use $1 at a time for up to 35 gallons. We will drive both cars to the pump. This is what we paid last April. 39.9 cents a gallon

    I paid $1.49 a gallon last week.

    We have a store around here that does that. One time I paid .03/gallon but then next time I went my amount off was higher than the price so they made me pay .10/gallon. They said they put a policy in place that .10 was the lowest they could go. They have a 30 gallon limit.

    Sounds unfair to me, if a smoker gets killed crossing the street his family ought to get a big rebate at least. How about all the lard asses sitting at desks, high blood pressure, overweight...how do they get punished?

    Gas around me (St. Louis) has gone up 42.5% since January 20th. The excuse we got for our $.25 overnight increase this week is the refineries in Texas are all shut down. Pretty soon it will be the "summer blends". I told the admiral to expect to pay $5.00 on the water this summer. Most we paid last year was $2.99.

    Yep. We were paying 3.99 on the water last year. Let's see what it is this year.

    Along those lines we heard the same with COVID. Last March we heard 'just wait until summer when everyone is outside and see how fast it spreads'. then when summer came they said 'just wait until winter when everyone is stuck indoors and see how fast it spreads'...lol

    Yep. I'm in Lawrence County but used to work in Warrendale. We boat on the Ohio River but our marina is on the Beaver River in Bridgewater. I don't make it to Wexford too often but I'm about 30 or so miles north of Wexford.

    Got it. My sister and BIL live in Wexford. We used to visit them quite a bit when our kids were younger. We usually stay in Cranberry. Nice area.

    New 370 Sundancer $750k base price. My 320 in 2007 equipped was $250k - I believe the 340 back then was around $300k.

    We went from $1.72 on January 20th to $2.45 yesterday. But nothing changed on January 20th, right?

    Said on the news last night that the reason fuel prices are going up is the cold weather in texas caused the refineries there to shut down and prices should be going down as the refineries are just now coming back on line. Don't know if I'm buying that one as gas use hasn't went up with everyone staying home. If Trump was still in office the high prices would be his fault.

    What about the price of other necessities such as steel? It’s way up too.

    Well, US steel requires US iron ore. Iron ore is excavated. We can’t have any excavating, so let’s buy Chinese steel instead.

    Steel is ridiculous. Went up $.25/lb. on some of our jobs.

    Everything is going up. Called inflation. Happens when the feds sign $3T handouts and start printing more money.
