Futures rose yesterday to $30 a barrel. The BBC reported they fell back to the $27 range this morning, about where they were before this situation occured.

The Oil Cartel has also pledged full support to keep prices stable and if necessary release their reserves.

My guess it is local stations being greedy. Wholesale gas prices are still in the 80 cents range, and fuel and heating oil are around .76 cents was this mornings report.

Here in Michigan a few local stations raised their prices as high as $5/gal. The local oil companies and distributors have frozen prices and the prices at the pump seem to have stabilized around $2/gal. The Michigan Attorney General has promised a vigorous investigation into anyone who is found to be price-gouging.

No change in gas prices in my wee little town of Madison, CT. Too bad, I was all ready to ream out the owners of the local 7-11 type stores.

I found a station selling gas at $1.39.9 this morning after that Act of War, the same price before 9/11/01. Many stations raised their prices 5 - 10 cents overnight, the high being around $1.54.9.
Someone should let them know Afghanistan exports terrorists not oil.

Yesterday a Texaco retailer in OKC raised prices to $5.00 and a Citgo in Tulsa raised to $2.60. The state Att'y Gen stepped in and shut them down. Today they are refunding people's money.
The largest independent retailer of private label Sunoco gasoline is selling for $1.50.
Lines yesterday, none today.

Prices in Massachusetts, just outside of Boston are steady. Regular unleaded at about $1.44/gal. No lines or increases.

$1.32 per gal. for regular at Texaco here in Sugar Land, Tx. It was a $1.29 last week, I guess I can live with that since I know Texaco needs the money after looking at their stock.

In Suburban Chicago I just paid $2.10 for Premium. Regular is running between $1.80 & $2.00. These are not jacked-up prices, but close to what we've been paying all summer.

Paid $1.84 last night in Oak Lawn (south suburban Chicago, long lines), down from $1.92 early yesterday AM, before the tragic events. Couldn't believe that prices actually fell! My daughter is in college in Macomb (western Illinois). Prices there went up about 30 cents yesterday to about $2.00, but are down to $1.74 now. A town near Macomb was already at $3.00 by 5:00 yesterday, with threats to raise to $5.00, as their on-hand supply dwindled. Wondering what marine fuel in New Buffalo is doing -- we're pulling the big boat this weekend, and will need to refuel both tanks. My thoughts and prayers . . . -- lks

Sam Walton must be rolling over in his grave.

I went to Sam's last night(9/11/01) and their regular gas had been marked up 23 cents per gallon over last weekend. In LA we have a law against price gouging. It was enacted after we had $5.00 per bag ice after a hurricane. When I called Sam's, their manager told me that they had been instructed by their home office to markup the gas. The manager called them and told them no one else was marking up gas. They were then told it was okay to lower the price.

So much for Wal Mart being on the consumer's side.

When I got home today, I had a message on my answering machine. Sam's called and said that they are sending a $10.00 gift card due to the increase in gas prices. I have no idea where they got my name or number. I hope they did this for everyone who bought gas at the higher prices.

Gas price in Groton, CT- Brewers Marina $2.13/gal on Saturday. Glad I'm still on a trailer- paid $1.44/gal today in New Britain, CT. I'm sure marine grade gasoline is worth the 50% premium! laff

$1.38/gal in Atlanta, that is about right I guess. It goes up and down so much here lately it is hard to keep track. I have seen over $.10 difference on the same day between stations depending on where they are located. Kelly

We were in New Brunswick this summer and the prices were .71CND per liter. I roughly figured it was equivalent to 1.61USD per gallon. So it sounds like it's really up now. Is that about 2.05 USD?
By the way, hope to make it to Nova Scotia next summer.

If anything, prices at the (auto) pumps seem to have fallen back a bit this weekend.

"Today, ExxonMobil announced a $5 million donation to meet immediate needs
and a three-to-one match for contributions from employees, retirees,
dealers, and distributors worldwide up to a total of $20 million. The
funds will be directed to agencies and charitable organizations, designated
by the Company, that are assisting surviving families of the injured and
deceased rescue personnel and responding to other needs."

Gas prices have actually moved downward a few cents since last week in parts of NJ. Averaging $1.40 North and about a $1.30 South in the state is what I have seen.
