Okay, so I'm jealous. I just filled up at $2.84 per gallon. But at 70 miles per gallon, I can't be too jealous. If the exchange rate would get back to 40:1, I'd be paying $2.51.
I'm often wrong. But I'm not always wrong!

That all sounds Grate Fit'. However, what happens if you have another one of those many, many Thai accidents, like the one you had earlier this year? Was it worth the difference, just to have to scoot around completely unprotected?

Just curious.

No it's not worth the difference, but when I arrived in Thailand 3.6 years ago, I didn't want to buy a car. Even now when I have an old Nissan pickup, it's just for big shopping chores. I got my first real motorcycle in 1964, and this is number 11. Automobiles are just so boring. I got stuck in traffic recently and the usual 15 minute ride took 50 minutes, but in a car it would have been two or three hours - just to go across town!

Quote:Oils Prices Sag to About $54 a Barrel


Tuesday January 9, 9:08 AM EST



LONDON (AP) — Oil prices fell about $2 a barrel Tuesday to their lowest levels in 18 months in a market expecting more mild weather and rising inventories in the United States.

Temperatures in the U.S. Northeast have been above normal this winter, curbing demand for heating fuels in the world's largest heating oil market.

Market watchers are also looking for a rise in U.S. petroleum inventories in this week's government report.

Light, sweet crude for February delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped $2.04 to $54.05 a barrel in electronic trading by afternoon in Europe. The front-month contract last closed below $54 a barrel in June 2005.

February Brent crude at London's ICE Futures exchange fell as much as $1.96 to $53.64 a barrel.

Traders said a break through key support levels triggered a wave of sell orders.

The Nymex oil contract slipped 22 cents to settle at $56.09 a barrel Monday after falling nearly 8 percent last week.

Monday's session was volatile, however, as prices rose as high as $57.72 on reports that OPEC oil ministers are considering another cut in output, and worries that a dispute between Russia and Belarus could result in energy shortages in parts of Europe.

The halt to the flow of Russian oil through Belarus had supported prices Monday, but ample supplies in Germany, Poland and Ukraine were expected to keep refineries running.

Nigeria's oil minister Edmund Daukoru discouraged talk of any immediate action to support prices by OPEC, which recently resolved to cut output by 1.7 million barrels per day.

"Let's implement the 1.7 million fully then we'll see if there's a need for additional cuts," Daukoru told Dow Jones Newswires.

If OPEC announced another production cut — on top of the 1.2 million barrel-a-day reduction that began in November, and the 500,000 barrel-a-day cut set to begin Feb. 1 — analysts say prices would likely rise. Still, OPEC's previous cuts haven't been able to keep crude prices above $60 a barrel for long, largely because many traders doubt that the cuts are fully enforced.

Forecasters expect temperatures in the U.S. Northeast to drop to normal levels over the next couple of weeks.

But heating oil futures fell more than half a cent to $1.5498 a gallon on Tuesday while natural gas rose 6.2 cents to $6.440 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Analysts surveyed by Dow Jones Newswires expect U.S. petroleum inventories to rise in government data to be released Wednesday by the U.S. Energy Department. Crude inventories were expected to climb an average of 820,000 barrels, the survey showed.

Crude stocks normally fall this time of year, but with imports rebounding from a recent slump, inventories are likely to rise, said analyst Phil Flynn of Alaron Trading Corp. in Chicago.

Petroleum product stocks are expected to increase for the fourth straight week. Distillate stocks, which include heating oil and diesel fuel, are seen rising by an average of 1.9 million barrels while gasoline stocks are projected to increase by 2.5 million barrels.

Still dropping. How far will it fall?

Quote:Oil Prices Fall Below $52 a Barrel


By MADLEN READ

NEW YORK (AP) -- Oil plunged below $52 a barrel Thursday to its lowest price since May extending a sharp decline that has been led by dampened heating oil demand, but which could save consumers money on a more widely used fuel: gasoline.

Crude oil has tumbled by 15 percent so far this year in a huge sell- off that was kicked off by investment funds last year, and then stoked by a historically warm U.S. winter that has left supplies of heating fuel barely touched.

Global Insight energy analyst Kevin Lindemer said that typically, for every dollar the price of crude goes down, you'll see a corresponding 2-2.5 cent drop in prices at the gas pump.

With crude down by around $9 from December, drivers should be paying about 20 cents less per gallon in a month or so, he said, if crude prices hold at current levels. The average U.S. retail price of gasoline was $2.281 on Thursday, down a cent from a month ago, according to AAA.

Is this the Real October Surprise,......in reverse? Are Those High Gas Prices Ever Going To Come Down?

What is interesting is that higher gasoline prices are just what the Bamster stated he wanted to occur. However, the month before the election just may not have been what he had in mind. But its too late to change one's mind not, because it is economic fact, and it is hammering him as just one more ToT event. And of his own making as well.

But lets look at a chart to gain an idea as to historic gasoline prices, from 1979 to today. I found this chart of the price scale of Texas Super-Unleaded over this timeline. It shows 'actual price paid', 'city average', and most important, a running average in '1979 dollars'. Either way one slices things, the 2008, and 2012 prices are indicative of what is hurting the consumer.

But note that the overheating economy under the last year of Junior also added to the severity of the recession, because it caused a slowdown in business activity, due to abnormal energy costs.

On the other hand, once the recession hit in full force, the price dropped to the point where it was under $2/gal the day the Bamster took office. And note the steady increase of gasoline costs, which was exactly what Obama stated publicly that he wanted. So he has gotten his wish. And now it is time to pay the piper.

Its going to take an awfully unknowing, uncaring, or 'In your Face Leftist' voter to enter the voting booth and vote for more of the same thing for four more years. Oh, and I also forgot the part about the Masochist Voter as well. S5
