Gasoline & Diesel Fuel Price Changes

Good Monday Morning,

 

We have another exciting week ahead of us. Man, it is getting hot down South and summer won’t officially start for another week. June 21st is the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year. One would think that, as the days become shorter, that the 21st would be the hottest day of the year, after which the days should become cooler. Yet, that is the first day of summer? It probably has something to do with the earth’s tilt and a buffering by the oceans. Gasoline prices are down today by 1.5 cents at the average rack in Selma. Diesel fuel is down by 1.27 cents. Crude oil is up $1.70 at this time from its close on Friday  of $75.48/barrel or $1.80/gallon. Prices are:

Notes:

When I give the change in gasoline, I only look at the Unleaded Regular.

When I give you the change in diesel fuel, I am always looking at the ULS or on road (though today they are  both exactly the same).

When I quote the crude oil price, I am using as a base, only West Texas Intermediate, the world standard for ‘sweet’ crude.

The Cost with tax is what Hopkins Oil would pay today at the average rack (oil company supplier) in Selma.

 

Enjoy your week,

I was driving back up I-40 from the coast last evening with just my yellow lab. He was having a panic attack. My son says it’s my driving. I set the speed control on 78. For a while I was passing most cars. After about an hour, cars started to pass me, some of the ones that I had passed. During the next hour,  almost everyone was passing me, most of them doing at least 85. I felt like I was being run over. One old Buick went by 90+. Governor Bev. must have been saving some on her budget, not a blue light special anywhere, not one all the way back to Raleigh. There seemed to be a ‘if he can do it then I can too feeling’ and they followed each other in droves. That was fine with me. I like to have those ‘rabbits’ running on ahead collecting the speeding tickets that I might have gotten.  Go for it!

 

Enjoy your week,

Gasoline & Diesel Fuel Price Changes

Good morning,

 

Gasoline prices at the average rack(oil supplier) in Selma are up 2.8 cents today. Diesel fuel is up 1.9 cents. The job report came out at 8:30 this morning. The market was expecting 600 thousand new jobs. The report was 430,000 instead which seems good at first blush, but it turns out that 411,000 of those jobs were temporary census takers. The Dow futures immediately dropped 100 points, literally seconds later. Crude is down from its close yesterday by $1.32, at $73.29/barrel.

Hopkins Oil has rehired one driver as reported earlier. We have another driver trainee starting Monday. He will concentrate on lubes. This will free up the lube driver to move up to our spare ten-wheeler when needed or one of the ten-wheeler drivers could move up to the transport. Simply put, your service should get a lot better, assuming the terminals remember to order enough product and don’t run out as they did last month. Prices today are:

Most of the jobsites will be drowned out today. I had over 2 inches of rain at my house this week.

The webhost has fixed the problem with our site whereby the fuel prices, the columns were scrambled. You can now view them in color as above. I greatly recommend my web designer, Don Freeman with Uncle Jake Media. The service and quality are good and the prices fair.

 

Have a good day.

It looks like we are due for rain much of today. I will walk my dog tonight instead of this morning. My wife informs me since, she has some Apple Stock, that Apple is the 2nd highest capitalized stock traded second only to ExxonMobil. I never thought I would live to see Apple pass Microsoft. One can tell that Gates has retired.

 

Enjoy your week,
