Late week surge in energy may be buzz-kill

GasBuddy Blog -- If you didn't see the markets Friday, I'll tell you the news. Your 401(k) probably took a jump in value. A sizeable jump. But with the move higher, commodities also took a leap, including crude oil and gasoline spot (spot meaning the price paid by wholesalers on the spot) prices.

The biggest single day gain in three years by oil will probably show up at the pump in the next 48 hours in some Great Lakes states, mainly Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. These states are at highest risk for a big jump. Also at a slightly lower risk of a big jump: areas of Illinois (my neighborhood station already rose 10c/gal), Wisconsin, Minnesota, St. Louis.

Up as much as 60 cents here since Monday. Lowest priced stations were under $3 Monday morning. Now all are resetting to $3.599, after jumping to $3.399 Monday noon.

The Federal Reserve must be printing money again, diluting the dollar.
Oil is traded in dollars; therefore, it takes more dollars to buy oil.

And yesterday morning Speedway led the charge with a $.25 increase in the Chicago southland area. So far other stations are holding steady in the 3.39 - 3.67 range.

Wondering why they're just talking about a price increase in the Great Lakes area - the entire country will likely feel it. Just take a few more hours to get there.

It shouldn't go up because that is August futures prices. Greed by the oil companies will make it go up.

Get down to 'somewhat decent' fuel prices and off it goes again. Maybe, this is a temporary bump and things will continue the slow slide at the pump. Is 'coming out of the closet' Barry (aka – vampire/ghost hunter) in the background doing something about prices at the pump?
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Gas jumped from $3.06 to $3.27 yesterday afternoon in central KY. The newest rise in gas prices has started. Upward and "forward" (new obama election slogan) to new higher levels are on the way.
