    Will the Saudis force down the price of oil to slow down our current oil boom?

    New shale oil discoveries “are threats to any oil-producing country in the world,” said Prince Alwaleed in an interview with The Globe and Mail. “It is a pivot moment for any oil-producing country that has not diversified. Ninety-two percent of Saudi Arabia’s annual budget comes from oil. Definitely it is a worry and a concern.”

    According to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), fracking (and horizontal drilling) has resulted in the United States becoming (in 2010) the world’s largest natural gas producer. Also, in October 2013, domestic oil production surpassed the amount of oil imported into the United States for the first time since 1995.

    In addition, because of fracking, America is projected to surpass Saudi Arabia and Russia as the largest oil producer in 2015, according to the EIA.

    In 2008, the United States was producing 5 million barrels of crude oil per day; because of fracking, America is now producing 7 million barrels per day.

    Paid $2.65 a gallon for regular.

    We've been doing a lot of the ailing in-law's shopping the last couple of months and using our affinity card, but I had no idea the grocery kickback was up to $.84 cents a gallon. Held a bit over ten gallons so saved enough to pay for half of dinner tonight at the diner.

    Usual price is $3.49.

    Burned through the cheap tank fast on a long day for day surgery for the MIL.

    Coming home I filled up for $3.20; not too shabby for this part of the world. Saw some E85 for $3.09 - wondered if it was kerosene at first.

    I've officially lived in the UP too long now. Pumped the gas and cleaned the glass wearing my light ski jacket liner, barehanded, baseball cap. The bank thermometer down the street was reading minus 2. Dry pavement and beautiful clear skies; looked like northern lights conditions but no aurora spotted.

    Dime bump up to $3.59 for RUG this morning.

    Doing a shopping run out of town here in a bit and need gas. It was $3.47 last night but all the pumps were occupied so I've waited. My luck it'll pop a dime (the news has been saying Michigan was going up 9 cents this week).

    The price of RUG at the local grocery store station jumped .15 from Sunday to Monday ($3.099 to $3.249). Fortunately, I filled up on Sunday and should be good until next weekend.

    What's up with that?

    Lucked out, station stayed at $3.47 and I got a dime off with my affinity card, so it came out to $3.37 a gallon. The out of town stations were mostly around $3.39.

    Prices headed up after long time under $3.50. Cheapest Costco filled today $3.59. Shell local station $3.83. Diesel $3.89 at Mobil I used last fill up. They must use a lot of water in the gas here. So the drought has caused the price to rise so much.

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,561

    Our local stations were a couple of cents cheaper than the out of town ones yesterday (found a good Mexican place an hour closer than our usual one). Guess the local station hasn't gotten the word yet. Didn't get out that way to check today, but I'd be surprised if the locals didn't bump up today.

    My friend in west Texas told me their gas jumped twenty cents overnight. RUG there is $3.25.

    I've seen a couple of pretty big jumps here in Colorado in the past couple of weeks as well. Went from $3.099 to $3.249 overnight, then another increase to $3.359 earlier this week.

    Yea, we bumped up a dime to $3.69 here two days ago. There MUST have been a good reason... like water is wet, fire is hot, or something like that

    Gas prices jumped because Exxon flip flopped on fracking. Hm, guess it was just the CEO of Exxon that's joined the nimby's in complaining about a fracking water tower in his neighborhood. Exxon CEO Joins Suit Citing Fracking Concerns (WSJ)

    @gagrice, so really, you're right. They do use a lot of water making "gas".

    Interesting also that Dick Armey is in on the lawsuit. Reminiscent of the Kennedy's blocking Wind Farms in their neighborhood. Then it could just be a big ugly water tank like some in San Diego. We had a huge blowup over the ugliest tank you can imagine about a dozen years ago. They should have built their ranch out near Dubya and got off the utility grid.

    lol, missed that about Armey. Sure is funny how people turn green when it hits their backyard.

    Most months I spend more for water than Electricity, gas and diesel. If we were on city sewer it would be double. Averaged about $110 per month for water. Since buying the diesel Touareg I have averaged $84 per month on gas and diesel combined.

    We run around $75 a month and about half of that is for the bond stuff to pay off infrastructure improvements. Boise was essentially free, other than filters for the well water, but I sleep better at night being on city water. Several wells failed in our neighborhood in the decade we lived there, and they aren't cheap to replace.

    Messy weather here so still haven't gotten down toward gasoline alley to check the latest prices.

    This discussion is back btw; had a glitch moving it over to the new platform:

    How does gas at $4 and higher impact you?

    Prices went up, but just a couple of cents. I was expecting a dime. Now selling RUG for $3.49.

    Went by Costco yesterday and they are now up to $3.65. Diesel holding at $3.85 with Shell diesel dropping from $4.09 to $3.95. Did someone say that Shell bought Valero? Our local Valero is now a Shell station. Right on I8 and expensive, RUG $3.93.

    @PFFlyer, we did get to enjoy a bit of the propane shortage last month. Went out to my in-laws back yard yesterday to check the gauge.

    Snowshoes and shovel were required to gain access to the top. :)

    Speaking of propane. My dealer is charging $3.75 right now. One dealer is gouging at $6.05 per GGE. Costco has a big sign selling Propane for $2.59 per GGE. any tank up to 100lbs. Makes you wonder if there is a shortage or just playing games.

    Ha, gas was up a dime today at my usual station to $3.59. Getting low on fuel so I went down the street. That station bumped diesel up a dime to $4.09 but regular was still at $3.49, so I filled up the Subaru. Eleven gallons so I saved enough to justify buying a lottery ticket. :p

    Up another dime to $3.69 for regular.

    Oh, the last propane order was around $2.50 a gallon so that crisis must be over.

    Yesterday, went by a Citgo station $3.699 for RUG. Next to it was a Shell station charging $3.939. :s

  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,871

    We're apparently not going to budge off of $3.69 here (probably just jinxed it too)

    That's what it was at home. Down here in the Detroit/Port Huron area most stations are $3.85. I managed to find some Speedy for $3.75 this afternoon and saw a couple of spots for $3.73. Diesel is mostly $4.25.
