They get a little higher, but they are not connected to gasoline prices.  Natural gas = heating for home, oil = gasoline.  My take.

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

Some people heat their home by burning "heating oil", which is a petroleum distilate a bit heavier than gas.  My understanding is that this is most prevelent in New England (though I grew up in a home in South Carolina with this kind of heat). 

 

The amount of petroleum used to making heating oil will not be turned in to gasoline, thus it reduces the supply of gasoline and tends to drive up the price.  Some of the things that drive up the price of gasoline (e.g. the cost of petroleum) may also drive up the price of heating oil, but they are not directly tied together, because an increased supply of one may mean a decreased supply of another, etc.

And to be more on topic, my last fill up got down to $2.549.  The one before that was at the recent local high of $2.599.  There are several stations who sell it for as much as $2.699, and then there are those on the interstate who ask even more.

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

Thanks for clearing that up (we only have natural gas here).

 

Our prices get higher as you drive towards downtown/business district, and avoid corner stations with NO competition! Smiley Very Happy

Gas was raised yesterday from $2.70 to $2.85. Smiley Sad

 

Figured they just wanted to gouge the Halloween weekend travelers by 15 cents/gal. Smiley Mad

Ours has been declining lately.  Did not see any spikes due to Halloween since it's not a typical travel holiday.

Yeah, realize Halloween isn't a big travel holiday. But seems like around here any holiday will do for a gas price increase. Wouldn't doubt they even raised the prices on Arbor Day.

Probably just their weekly increase pattern here. They raise prices about every Weds/Thurs and often lower them on Mondays. That way they can nail all the weekend travelers. Smiley Mad

I remember prices as low as $0.249 during gas wars in the 60's.

 

I passed a sign for $2.469 on my way to work this morning.

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

Yeah, gas wars were cool!  And all the freebies you'd get for filling up...STEAK KNIVES (for SomeJoe), drinking glasses; stamps to collect for redeemable goods.

 

We talked about this before on the ORIGINAL Gas Prices thread that got deleted in the merge. Smiley Mad
