Costs have taken a great bounce. Gasoline prices rebounded by 5.36 cents/gallon at the average rack in Selma. Diesel prices moved up by 1.66 cents/gallon. Crude rebounded by $2.45/barrel now $83.12/barrel. It is interesting that West Texas Intermediate is only $1.35/barrel less in price than Brent crude, not the $10 it has been historically. Could it have something to do with those 15 refineries in Europe that were shuttered trying to compete with finished products from the U.S? They quit buying the high price crude so the price dropped to become more competitive.

I want to see the dollar rise, finally, after all the QE’s. Crude is traded in dollars. The higher the relative value of the dollar, now about 85 cents against the 10 major currencies, then our gasoline and diesel fuels prices should drop, giving the whole country a “tax credit”, both companies and individuals. We shall see………..

I am reseeding my lawn which was killed by brown rot or some such. The only place grass was growing was in my brick walk where I did not want it.

We will be working on Monday, full office staff and Driver Team.

Gasoline is down by 1.93 cents at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel is up though by 1.72 cents. I would expect diesel fuel/heating to be going up with Winter coming. Gasoline consumption is dropping in this country with the newer engines and lighter vehicles.

One of my pet peeves, I make a lot of mistakes dialing the touch telephone. And the reason is I also use a ten key calculator too and they are exactly opposite. My fingers learn one and then makes mistakes on the other. I would really love to buy a phone with keys like a calculator. That’s just me.

Surprise, we got another good drop in prices. Remember the oil guru Tom Kloza  gave 13 reasons why prices would be lower in the Fall than the Spring. Gasoline dropped by 6.4 cents/gallon at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel slipped by 2.07 cents/gallon. Prices are:
