Gas Prices On The Rise For Tri-State

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — When it comes to gas prices, what goes up isn’t supposed to be going up.

The price at the pump has jumped about 20 cents in the Tri-State Area the past three weeks, with New York topping the $3 mark for the first time since May.

Normally at this time of year the cost drops because the summer travel season is over.

Analysts blame a number of factors, including a weak dollar which pushes up crude oil prices.

    Gas prices are on the rise alright but have you checked home heating fuel costs recently?

    Got a fill up the other day…$3.33 a gallon! WOW! And it’s still October!

    Stupid half arsed reporting again. Gasoline prices are up because the libturds have increased the mandate for ethanol content in the gas mix from 10% to 15%. Ethanol costs more than gasoline.

    Ethanol also takes one gallon of gas to make one gallon of “environmentally friendly” ethanol. So you have already burnt that gallon of gas into the atmosphere so that you can burn another gallon of ethanol into the atmosphere afterwards. And since ethanol has a lower BTU than gas, you’d need to burn more ethanol too.

    And another price increase since this new ethanol mix mandate: corn prices jumped 15%.

    Typical libturds. Short on brains and science. Long on rhetorics and political correctness. And any stupid, they’ll ram through. Here’s waiting for those stupid little cars you drive to have their fuel pumps rotted out by the corrosive ethanol.
