Re: Gas prices....................................

BTW, I heard some dude on CNBC this morning say gas prices are headed to $1.15 a gallon. Thats the kiss of death. It will probably shoot straight up from here.*

Re: Gas prices....................................

I spent the last week in El Rito, NM and drove back to Mesa, AZ today. Gas ranged from $2.999 to $2.399 per gallon. Lowest prices were here in Mesa. That is really rare. Normally, the only time I pay more for gas than here at home is when I travel to California.

One station locally is selling a gallon for $1.99, with most places selling regular in the $2.20 - $2.27 range.

Hawaii gas gap widens with Mainland
Pacific Business News (Honolulu) - 7:45 AM HAST Monday 18 Sep
U.S. average self-serve regular has fallen 50 cents a gallon in less than 40 days, to less than $2.50. Honolulu gas prices have fallen less than 14 cents, to $3.12.
For more than a week Hawaii has been the only remaining state with average pump prices above $3 a gallon, and the gap between Hawaii and second-place California has widened in the past week from 23 cents to 38 cents, with Honolulu regular 22 cents more than Los Angeles regular.
AAA Hawaii put Honolulu self-serve regular at $3.11, Hilo at $3.33, and Wailuku at $3.51.
West Coast city averages, for comparison:
Seattle: $2.79.
Portland: $2.80.
San Francisco: $2.90.
Los Angeles: $2.90.
San Diego: $2.84.

Re: Gas prices....................................

Four days later and everywhere I look I see gas for less than $2.20. There are a number of places you can buy it for less than $2 and one station is at $1.93. This has to rebound soon I think, but at the rate it is going down now I wonder how low it will go.

Re: Gas prices....................................

The only upward forces I can see on prices would be a hurricane in the gulf or more pipeline issues, a break out of violence in the mideast threatening oil production, OPEC cutting production.

However, if you are skeptical about the prices coming down because the elections are coming up, then we could see a rebound the second week in Nov

You are right - I don't think I was thinking when I wrote that last post as much as I was emoting. The slide in prices has been dramatic, but after thinking about it I don't want to attempt to pick a bottom on the market.

I don't have a clue what prices are going to do, but I'm not a believer in that particular conspiracy theory.

The hurricane season has been a non-event for the GOM, and from what I read anything developing in the nearterm will most likely hit the east coast or veer back out to sea. As for the stability of oil producing nations your guess is as good as mine. How low will OPEC watch the prices go before they try to impose some production cuts? It's not an exact science - especially when member and non-member states are inclined to fudge their numbers - but I think that they will try it at some point if the prices continue to drop. Crude is sitting at just under $61 this morning.
