Gas prices are increasing again. The increase in oil prices play a role but this is around the time when the summer blend is being refined again. They will probably be going up until early summer. Still cheap though. Hopefully we stay below $3.

I doubt if prices will go up steeply anytime soon. For one, the world economy is seriously slowing down, with some major emerging markets in deep recession and China's growth is said to be hugely exaggerated, slowing the demand. At the same time there is still significant overproduction, especially with Iran joining the international oil market. If you need money desperately, you don't care if your oil is sold at $ 20 or $ 80 per barrel.

Seems to me that after all these years of telling the same tales about why the price of gas is rising the oil companies could come up with a different story. AND we customers should be use to it by now.

Why Midwest Gas Prices Are Now Among the Nation's Highest

Quote:
But why is our region seeing the higher prices? According to Triple-A Nebraska, oil refineries in our area are going through seasonal maintenance checks, which means gas is harder to come by.

"We have to keep in mind they're dealing with explosive products, so to keep their employees safe they do the checks," says the AAA's Rose White. "If they find any issues, their production might be down even further, which further tightens their supply levels."

AAA data shows the average price of regular unleaded gas in Iowa is about $2.02. The average for Cedar Rapids and Waterloo is $2.00, $1.92 in Davenport, $2.13 in Des Moines, and $1.95 in Sioux City. The national average is $1.94.

"We shouldn't have any shortage issues and with crude oil prices remaining about $38 a barrel right now, we should still see very favorable prices," says White.

Despite the strengthening Canadian dollar which should lower retail fuel prices they are increasing

previously it was possible to buy at 78-79.9 cents CAD/L in the Hamilton area
today nothing in that area less than 89 and typically more like 95 cents
The Greater Toronto area meanwhile is generally between 89 and 99 cents/L

Yes.

Now

91 > 1 Bs/L -----> 0.15$/L
95 (super) > 6 Bs/L ------> 0.95$/L

Before

91 > 0.071 Bs/L ------> 0.01$/L
95 (super) > 0.097 Bs/L -------> 0.02$/L

Bs = Bolvar (official money)

Prices are going up indeed, I've already seen motorway service areas at € 1.60 per liter for Euro 95 in the Netherlands.

Fuel here in Cedar Rapids is $1.92 to $2.05 a gallon for unleaded a 10% ethanol blend. Oh some stations are now selling 15% ethanol along with 85% ethanol also know as flex fuel. the 85% s about 20 cents a gallon cheaper than the other blends.

edit in case anyone wanted to know Diesel is running about $2.29 a gallon. Very few diesel cars in the US..plenty of Diesel trucks however.

We just made a short road trip to southern Illinois about 631km one way or 392 miles and the fuel there is much higher in price. Regular unleaded is $2.14 up to $2.29 a gallon.

My car got about 30 mpg for the trip.
