Just learned from a reliable resource (my wife) that gasoline in my area will go over 4 dollars a gallon. It has been steady at 3.25 for 4 days which was last week at 2.85. I'm pretty much fed up with these companies jacking the prices. Over the past 8 years I have been keeping mental notes of the gas pricing strategies in example 2 steps up, one step down, 2 steps up etc. No matter what these companies say. There is no real shortage on oil. They regulate the flow of production and price. For example, about 5 years ago there was a tremendous drop in gas prices which many Opec and other organization were ticked off about. The reason for the drop was because Russia could not shut down their pumping facilities over the siberian winter. Shutting down the pumps during that time would of course ruin all the pumping engines. Prices did not rise again until the following spring. As an individual I have concluded to search for an alternative for transportation. The cost in commuting to work alone justifies my reason to get a EV. Furthermore I am boycotting purchasing any other goods from filling stations, quick shops to the best of my ability. Ya, it won't deal out any impact to these companies, but I'll save money by shopping elsewhere.
