    Fuel prices are sure to rise after the oil companys read this!

    I currently pay $2.73 in Tucson Arizona. Thought we were low until I checked out SLC's prices -- about $.25/gal less. Amazing. But our lowest octane is 89 while Utah's is 87. Utah's 89 octane is on par with our prices.

    Nope. Just like to look at it optimistically and be glad I'm not paying the $360-plus I was paying not that long ago!

    @ xscribe

    I suppose you enjoy paying an exhorbitant amount of money to the oil companies. Ripping off and gouging consumers, particularly for a necessary product, isn't all that commendable, regardless of what you might think or be able to afford. As if the recession wasn't bad enough, we have to suffer the political consequences of those who should have been born in horse-and-buggy days.

    Who took that survey, claiming that Utah has the lowest prices?

    Mesquite, Nevada today: $2.72 at Maverik
    Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona last week: we never paid higher than $2.77
    Kingman, AZ: $2.89

    All you had to do is wait for it, and you knew there would be a negative comment. Congrats! Things are never good enough for some people!

    I have records....that show that on February 2 2009 in St George UT, Gas was $1.78 for 87 Octane, down from the "record highs" the summer before of $3 and $4 per gallon. So by some peoples logic gas goes down following an election of a new president and goes up after a couple of years in office. I remember an article from 1978 that proclaimed the end of the world because gas jumped to a $1 a gallon....why the fluctuation? in social and economic...because in the 80's we started importing more oil to save our reserves on federal "public" lands. Have we used up those reserves or not???

    They are NOT LOW right now. They should have been about $2.75 last October, then dropped for the winter. Gasoline is not a true supply/demand commodity (wish it were) and those in power don't care if it skyrockets.

    Thanks to the media trumpeting this story, you'll see prices go up again very soon. Thanks for nothing....

    Card well played Screwdriver....

    I could have sworn we were promised $5 a gallon prices by not just a few of the regulars here - remember - part of his secret agenda that only a few on the right new the real story on..... still waiting on the and Gold at @2,500 by the end of Obama's first term.

    That said, one of the things in life you can count on is the price of Oil going up in the summer time.... so just have patience and the regulars will be back in force again, with their theories and all.

    Don't hold your breath, screwdriver.

    But be ready to duck for cover when they start to go up again.
