Default How about dem gas prices?

So with all this geo-political volatility, oil/energy impact, etc...gas is going through the roof. Who knows if this is is a short-term shock or soaring gas prices are here to stay....

Are these current prices having an impact on your driving habits or have you reconsidering an alternative vehicle?

I just bought an F-150 (2.7) about 2 months ago, and am already considering selling it simply because fuel was $2.27/g when I bought it. It's now $3.85 atm. I only drive 60 miles/day but we are soon moving to where it's 120/miles a day. I get I should have anticipated some fuel rise, but I dont think anyone could have expected an almost 200% increase in 2 months.

I have a work truck with paid gas thankfully. $4.29 here this morning, and I think we’ll see this until Big gas profits are revealed to be through the roof like they were a while back. And people begin chanting, with burning pitchforks, for shareholders heads. Then they’ll drop a few pennies.

Sure glad I work from home full time. My Silverado 1500 gets a lousy 14mpg, so even driving the short distance to my office in town daily would cause me to fill up once per week. As it is, I fill up about once per month now. Regular Unleaded is about $3.70/gal now, and I'm sure it will keep climbing. Last year it was about a buck cheaper.

Its a good thing both my cars have 4 bangers......


unfortunately neither are the most fuel efficient machines out there and one needs premium, the other needs at least mid-grade.....

Not changing driving habits much, everything else around here has gotten more expensive too so its not just gas.....just gotta deal with it.


I might have to give up my hope that i can drive a V8 beast before transitioning to EV's........and just go straight to EV when the time comes.....

The Costco gas lines have finally settled down, but were insane a few days ago.

I just recently went full time remote for work and it couldn't have come at a better time. I was only going into the office 2-3 times a week, but its still a 50+ mile a day commute total and my current car isn't so great on MPG.

Something with good timing in my life for a change.

Current versus historic gas prices.



It seems like I remember a time, decades ago, when people were predicting that we'd already reached Peak Oil and that gas prices would inevitably climb. Here we are, decades later, still buying gas powered cars wondering why gas prices are so high. At some point, when people warn us since the 70's that gas prices would go up to unbearable levels, and we just keep pretending that won't ever happen, it's on us.

I just talked to my co-worker and he asked if I had gassed up yet, but the first thing he said was “Damn Biden” and I just….didn’t feel like putting the effort into the conversation. Just…..stop.

Didn't you know? Presidents actually have a gas prices button that sits behind the Oval Office desk. Biden's just being stingy with his.

He’s making billions because he has all the chips being held on boats to force gas prices up while he buys EV stock and then when he has all the money he’s going to release the chips and save the day so people will love him instead of Trump.

I’m not joking. Serious as a heart attack.

The last time prices got this high we ended up in a recession. There were other factors there, but when folks can't afford gas they start spending less on other stuff.

I wish EVs were more affordable that still had descent range, so more people could afford them.

I’m not joking. Serious as a heart attack.
Wait, what? Is that an actual theory?

This would really help. We'd want to invest in incentives for EVs, and build out a nationwide charging network to support this, while also investing in renewable generation and storage to keep up with the clear increase in demand on the grid that we'll see if the country does quickly transition over.

We should've started decades ago, but the 2nd best time is now.

I heard similar from my mechanic, so I would say yes, it’s an actual theory being pushed out there.

Yeah the damn RX7 will be over $100 to fill if I'd run it down that low.

Sigh.

I had a 2007 RX-8 in California back when gas prices for Premium were over $5/gal. Unfortunately, it required Premium and only got 13 mpg, so I sold it. No way I could afford to pay over $80 per fill-up every 5 days.
