    Gas stations here went from $2.579 to $2.699 LITERALLY overnight here. This was a few days ago as now they are all in the $2.73 or so range.

    Crudes been at $80 per barrel or so. Crude goes up as our dollar weakens against the Euro. Oil is priced in U.S. dollars. When our dollar falls it attracts foreign investors to buy more oil. As this happens, oil becomes more expensive for refineries to purchase which gets past down to consumers in higher pump prices. Barrel price shot up to $84 the other day but has dropped a couple back down.

    Our money is falling because investors expect the feds to buy bonds to boost our economy. BUT this should weaken out dollar even more.

    So lets see if my simple mind can figure this out. Boosting our economy makes gas prices shoot up, consumer travel and overall spending slows. I'm still working on how the "boost in our economy" comes out of all this.

    My un-economical mind predicts a very gloom six-eight months coming.

    The price of crude oil in other currencies is the same. The Arabs want an extra 10% if they are paid in Obama's funny money.
