Gas prices today, in and around Macon Georgia are $3.71/$3.89. This past week I have had to go to 5 stations to find diesel fuel, and several stations, at any given time are out of reg. gas or mid. grade and premium. It is reported worse in the larger cities. The Governor has said it is a self induced shortage, but I have seen no lines at local stations, traffic/business seems to be at a normal rate. Well I am just wondering how supply and demand figure into today's gas prices and availability. I also wonder how this will affect the heating oil market, seems like this is the time of year they usualy build up fuel oil inventories. It would seem that after hurricane Ike, we really got reamed at the gas pump. We had a thread on the subject that had some excellent input https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=188274, but now that there truly seems to be a production shortage, the prices seem to be stable. Maybe the big corporations are too afraid to jack the prices, in the shadow of this wall street bail out. What are you thoughts on this??
