  • Of course. They are gonna keep going up. Did anyone really think they were gonna stay down?

  • Yes. It is going to keep going up too. This happens every time a new president takes office...a fall and then a rise

  • I figured this would happen. The last couple days I've heard on the news that the cost of oil has gone up per barrel again, so this is what is going on.

  • It went up 10 cents on Friday from $1.45 and $1.55. The kids have been sick so I haven't went anywhere since Saturday.

  • The price decrease for gas was temporary. With the fighting going on in Gaza, there is going to a significant increase soon. The lower prices were a relief while they lasted. We are up to $1.79 a gallon for regular in Florida.

  • Yes. OPEC agreed to limit production about a month ago to combat deflation. That is why the cost is going up. It will fluctuate for the rest of its existence in my opinion.
