OUCH . . . GAS PRICES . . . What Did You Pay Last?

V-Power Premium at the Local Shell Station was $3.199.

NOT GOOD since that's up about 50 cents since the last fill up!

Chevron 92 just jumped from $3.65 to $3.82 in 1 week. Tesoro Refinery went down on Oahu and no time frame for repairs set, so everyone else takes a jump and it's Thanksgiving week coming up, so it's gouging time.

Thumper and I own an earthwork and asphalt paving company in Phoenix - we would be considered an upper middle to low high volume subcontractor in the area. I just asked her what our fuel bills per month were a year ago, and what they are now. Wow!

Including red diesel (for the yellow iron), white diesel (for the over-the-road trucks) and gas for the pickups:

Last year: +/- $ 50K per month
This year: +/- $ 75K per month

Allowing for a 5% increase in volume (sales) of $ 2,500 per month, our net increase in fuel costs is $ 20K per month from last year at this time. This increase is comparatively equivalent to last year's sales in the fall months and this year's.

Add to that, the fuel companies' terms are net 15 days for payment, and we get paid (on average) 60-90 days after we bill the general contractors (less 10% retention, which the general contractors pay after they receive final payment - which, if you're paving a WalMart, can be one to two YEARS after we complete the project).

We're in the wrong business.

I think $3.02 but I am not sure

The prices at our two local stations can vary by several cents, several times a day. I expect them to just start posting the prices on a dry-erase board for ease of changing the prices.

Those collection agencies charge 25% of the invoice total. It costs less to wait.

AND, try that with WalMart - you won't work for them ever again.

Paid 3.099 for 89 (on my Silverado) just 2 days ago. It's been going up a few cents every day over the past 2 weeks. That's the thing I hate most is that the filling stations jack the price up constantly even though they're not getting product delivered - they're charging more for what they already had in the tank!
