As expected, yes. When the dust settles, as it were, they will go back down. DH filled our gas tank just in case.

I have no idea if our gas has gone up in the Seattle area.  I fill my tank about once a month.  I can't even tell you at what price gas was last time I filled it.

Yes, that's probably true throughout the country.  And we haven't seen the highest prices yet.  It is what it is.  Gas prices won't go down until the refinaries and roads are back to normal or close to it and that will not be for a while.

Thanks to the suggestion from someone here, I filled up everything before land fall.

I filled my tank on Aug 31. I got $ .90 off of a gallon with my bonus points earned at Giant Grocery store.  My points were going to expire at the end of Aug, so i was forced to use them or lose them.

 

Yes, our gas has gone up even our Gov't has allowed the gas reserves to be used in this emergency.  Someone will get rich.

I have $4.10 in gas points at Giant/Shell.  So $1.50 off the next two fillups and $1.10 off the third. 

 

With the Mastercard gift card deal this week, I'll probably get much more off.  Love those deals.

 

I believe that 15 refineries are off line now in the gulf because of the storm.  

 

That coupled with everyone from here to the Bering Straits filling up because of the hurricane is also pushing  the price up.

 

The only good news is, the price will go back down.

Anyone having their gas prices jump? Here in PA. I went to get gas this morning and it jumped  twenty six cents since yesterday.

Yes, ours has been rising. Doesn't PA have an incredibly high state gas tax as is?  I don't know if $3 a gallon is predicted, but it would not surprise me. Well, we are called United States so when one big state like TX suffers, the repercussions are widespread.


I think you are right Auntg, I am pretty sure PA has the highest gas tax.

We are at $2.70 a gallon here in Delaware (this is just my area only ) don't know if it is cheaper above the canal or not.

I could care less what gas goes up to.  That's why I purchase hybrid camrys all the time and this new hybrid camry I just recently purchased is getting almost 50 miles to the gallon.  I can't see ever buying a full gas powered vehicle ever again.
