    Grandson #4 (last grandson) graduated on Thursday and the party was yesterday at a park. I didn’t think that many people liked him. Maybe it was the free food. In any case I went as a guest but did help a little with the cleanup.

    $4.45 a gallon for RUG, PUG is a buck more. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

    $3.45 for RUG is the cheapest in my neighborhood. What rich place do you live in?

    My wife says that this is my favorite day of the year- Monaco, Indy, and Charlotte. I'm watching Charlotte on a delay because Indy had the severe weather. This year the Nürburgring 24 HR is next weekend, along with the Detroit IMSA race and the Illinois NASCAR race, but at least they are spread out some.
    I remember when there was no live television coverage of any racing. Every year I would listen to Indianapolis on the radio while I prepped my Monte Carlo Q-Ship for another season of cruising and informal speed contests.

    Monaco was a bust, this year. For the first time since F1 was held in 1950, the finishing order of the top ten was exactly like they started the race.

    There are never a lot of lead changes at Monaco, but at least there was a bit of drama with the red flag and the strategy regarding tire degradation- plus it was great to see the hometown driver take the win.

    Forget lead changes; I think there were a single digit number of overtakes during the entire race, and all of them were at the bottom of the field.

    I respectfully disagree about the red flag on lap 1; everybody changed to the tires they wanted and kept them for the remainder of the race. Everybody was running slow lap times to save their tire wear, and those drivers who did pit a second time did so with enough gap between them and the car behind them that they didn't lose track position.

    IMO, the size of the car has ruined the racing at Monaco. I don't want to lose the race due to the historic nature of the circuit, but it was hard to watch.

    It would be nice to see them get a bit smaller, which would also limit the amount of aero they could have.

    Agreed - It's been a "procession" for last 15-20 years. Senna's 13th to second feat in Toleman during a rain would be impossible today, no matter how bad the rain is.

    But, how to fix it?

    Can't make the track any wider. Could make the cars smaller with the new regs for 2026, but I suspect that the FIA is too far down the path to make any major changes like that.

    Today was a good day for cycling but a missed opportunity. I was less than a mile from home when a camouflaged 2025 Expedition passed me. I caught up when it was stopped at a light, and I found a spot to pull off that got a good angle, but the light was changing before I could get my phone out to take a pic.

    Could I have sold a pic to the car mags? Probably not but it was only today that someone captured one in Dearborn. Same camo job. https://www.motor1.com/news/721303/2025-ford-expedition-spy-photos/amp/

    Smaller cars could be a possible fix, but they can't be as small as previously due to safety requirements. I'm wondering if there is a way to change the course and add a longer straight somewhere, but even that may not help. Monaco is arguably the worst track now in terms of sporting/competition value. But you can at least catch a glimpse of a multimillion dollar yacht parked in the marina on yours screen, real marina not that fake blue stuff in Miami :wink: .

    So I didn’t get in the posting party about last week’s (attempted) Marathon gouge here in Louisville, but now that I have seen several stations below pre-spike prices, I can reflect.

    First of all, it didn’t stick. Last Wed afternoon and Thu morning, more than a few went from 3.79 to 4.39 for RUG. But by Fri morning nobody was left above 3.99.

    Second, not everyone played. Some never went above 3.99.

    Third, there are a lot of conspiracy theories about price hikes tied to events. Which to me are how supply and demand works. I’m not sure if this debunks them, or would fuel (no pun intended) new ones, but looking at graphs on GasBuddy, the three most recent “bottoms” in the local price chart happened during and just after Thunder Over Louisville, the Kentucky Derby, and the PGA Championship. Things that make you go “hmmmm.”

    I remember trying to get a brochure when the Mustang redesign came out in 2015. Not only didn’t my neighborhood dealer not have them but seemed totally uninterested in even speaking to me. As a consequence, when it came time to buy I went to a different store 20 miles away.

    They noticed, they just didn’t care.

    A few days ago I came out of the market to find a lifted Tacoma parked next to me at a crooked angle only half way into the parking spot. With it sticking out into the isle it was a chore to back out since it blocked the view of the lane.

    The drive must have been in a rush to get a special on chicken wings or something and tossed all civility to the wind.

    Here in Nova Scotia and all the other east coast provinces of Canada, we have had govt gas price regulation for many years. It was instituted after public outrage by the behavior of the gasoline distributors became too loud for politicians to ignore. Unlike many other knee-jerk political decisions, this one actually seems to work.

    What led to the original outcry was when the media uncovered how gas prices locally were fixed/changed. It had been a bit of a mystery because there was almost never any variation from brand to brand and prices changed without any seeming rhyme or reason at every station at the same time. Turns out there was one distributor (IIRC, Petro-Canada locally, which ironically enough was once owned by our Federal govt before they sold it off) which determined the price and any changes to it. A person there made the change decision and then notified (apparently with a phone call believe it or not) every other player locally what the new price would be, and within an hour or a few hours every one on them was reset. Usually they went up more than what market conditions dictated and would slowly drop a couple of cents over the next few days. The most outrageous event was after Hurricane Katrina when they took a huge jump even before the full impact was known, which got the public very worked up since our fuel didn't come from anywhere near there (here it comes from a big refinery in New Brunswick, another in Montreal, or from Europe).

    The regulatory regime now resets prices every Friday based on the NY harbor spot market price or some such publicly-available trading price, and unless there is a huge jump or drop during the week, it remains stable. People seem happier.

    While I don’t doubt collusion exists, down here I think there are other factors in play. Many station properties are owned by oil companies who lease them to individuals. These individuals are required to sell the lessors “brand”. While they are free to set prices themselves they also have gas sales quotas so sometimes slow business will result in price drops to meet the quotas. Different rents also affect prices.

    Around me that makes for wide variations in pricing; as much as 50 cents a gallon for some locations.

    Between some of the stories I heard out of inland NC after Ike in 2008, and knowing that Marathon Ashland has a distribution monopoly on reformulated gas in the Ohio Valley I wonder if it’s not more coercion than collusion.

    In 08 while the rest of the country saw falling prices as the speculator bubble collapsed, everything near the Colonial Pipeline stayed high because there was a supply problem. Wilmington gets most of its supply by barge, but when the pipeline was down wholesalers from Raleigh were bidding up the prices so they could get fuel. Our gas was pricey but at least we had gas. There were still shortages inland, like 1974-style gas lines for the stations that did have fuel.

    I often notice that gas prices are higher at stations right off the Interstate and for gas stations far away from the next station.

    Our area prices are typically cheaper by $.15-.25 gallon than neighboring Charlotte. Part of that is the SC state tax per gallon is less. Because of the proximity to Charlotte, many from there cross the state line to fill up. Deeper into SC prices are even lower by $.15-.20.

    Our area prices are typically cheaper by $.15-.25 gallon than neighboring Charlotte. Part of that is the SC state tax per gallon is less. Because of the proximity to Charlotte, many from there cross the state line to fill up. Deeper into SC prices are even lower by $.15-.20.

    Another nice thing about vacationing in Myrtle Beach is the gas prices are a lot better than anything found on the way down or back. Although anywhere outside of PA seems to be a bargain. :#

    When pumping gas in SC, I almost feel like I’m stealing.

    Has anyone used the various headlight clearing kits that remove the hazing deteriorated layed on
    plastic headlight housings?

    I am tempted to try one for my Cruze.

    I did it years ago and it came out pretty good. I recommend using a power tool for buffing because it takes a lot of time.

    I used a kit on our CX-7. Lots of elbow grease, but I was satisfied with the results.

    I don’t know about that.

    I had a good view of a table of good looking ladies at the table next to ours while we were at dinner tonight. No water though.

    I don’t know what the market is like in that area but it doesn’t look like you should have a problem selling that house in the shape that one is.

    Good luck.
