What is mostly driving the price swings are speculators in the wholesale gas futures market. This market volitiliy has been getting worse with each tax cut.

The investment class has basically run out of things to invest in. They aren’t investing in bricks and steel, so they invest on paper.

Go on…

Bit of WW2 trivia (well before my time): One of the early forerunners of what became the Armed Forces Radio Service was a broadcast station out of Thule with the call sign KRIC, which the local G.I.s asserted stood for “Keee-Ripes It’s Cold”.

It might be that you live in a state where you pay sales tax on gasoline, in which case the price would vary by jurisdiction.

I’m jealous of your solar panels. Our roof gets too much shade, which honestly isn’t a bad thing this time of year.

Yeah, cuz I’m sure the Greenlanders envy our healthcare and pension system.

Oh, cheez, I thought it was snark (I didn’t know who Shapiro is…)

We should all just accept that we’re going to live in the last half of the nineteenth century. Presumably, it will end when someone shoots an archduke, or something.

I can at least tell you the price difference is due to “zone pricing”. I found an internet explainer …

Makes a lot of sense, zone pricing that has prices 40/50 cents or more different a 1/2 mile apart… makes sense, NOT. I could maybe see different towns, 10 or 15 miles apart.

Yesterday, I40 on north side of highway, exit heading west, 2 stations at $2.29. A single station, same firm as on north side, at the exit heading east, therefore the south side of the Interstate, .57 miles separate stations, the price was $2.69. Some zone pricing.

Well, he often parodies in his crude way his notion of a typical president, a “stiff,” by standing rigidly straight and talking in a pompous tone. He thinks he’s “fun.” And I imagine if you’re a clod like his minions you take it that way. I’m surprised nobody’s ever likened his appeal and niche to that of Howard Stern. They both explicitly validate people for whom crudeness and vulgarity are virtues of necessity. “I’m just bein’ honest, man,” all that.

Denmark should offer Fat Ass a swap:

We’ll give you Greenland, which you’ll end up turning into a shithole, if you’ll give us Texas, which we will turn into a prosperous socialist nation.

So, of course our president falls for a 10th century viking marketing ploy designed to sucker families from Iceland to come to warm, sunny, wooded “Greenland.” Yeah, this guy knows real estate.:rofl:
