The jobs report came out today and it was disappointing. There were only 140,000 job created not the 200,000 expected. So prices of stock declined despite the fact that there was a truce in the Ukraine. As our Fed reduces the quantitative easing, The European Union is beginning their own plan for easing despite Germany’s protest. Most of Germany’s exports are to its European neighbors so it would help Germany more than any country. Germans still remember when inflation there meant a loaf of bread could be purchased with a wheel barrow of Marks.

Gasoline is down by 1.07 cents at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel is down by 1.67 cents/gallon. Prices are:

I have an ongoing problem with a couple of websites that make me change my password every month. I have written letters to Exxon and Paragon Bank trying to explain my problem, but we just cannot handle another dog and they won’t let me reuse the same password. We must have ten or twelve by now. I have lost the count. Some people can be so insensitive to other people’s problems. That is funny expecting an oil company to be sympathetic. Duh! And the guy at the bank when I called, he choked he laughed so hard. Would you believe that. I just hung up on him after advising him to seek the Heimlich maneuver.

Bad news. Just when you think the oil god has answered our price prayers, then they bounce right back up.  Gasoline is up by 4.28 cents at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel jumped up by 5.69 cents/gallon. Crude popped up a dollar to over $93. Prices are:

Today’s Gas & Diesel Price Updates

Every morning when I rise, it seems darker. I have to look out and see if it is going to rain. I am sure we are moving every day to end the benefit of daylight saving, and Fall back, not Spring forward. My favorite story about day light savings was the lady who wrote the newspaper and complained that the extra hour of sunlight was killing her grass. It must be true. My grass is dying too. They say Benjamin Franklin thought up daylight savings while he was ambassador to France. Apparently Paris nightlife only started about midnight and went on into the early morning. Old Ben, the discoverer of lightning, as a great wit, proclaimed that Parisians should shift their clock by 6 hours, starting their merriment at 6 p.m. now DS midnight thus over by 6 a.m. real midnight. He even made a calculation of how many candles would be saved. The idea was never applied for real until WWII  for saving on electricity.

Can you stand some really good news? Gasoline dropped by 6.62 cents at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel dropped by 5.74 cents/gallon. I only get to use the ‘dropped’ when the change downward is over 5 cents. Prices are:
