Gasoline & Diesel Fuel Price Changes

Good afternoon, Meetings all morning. The price down 1.6 cents on gasoline today. Diesel fuel is down 1.2 cents at the average rack in Selma. Tomorrow, I am going to switch gasoline pricing from 9.0 to 7.8 (summer gas) as that is most of what we are finding in the terminals presently. The spot shortages continue on gasoline. None of this has anything to do with the problems in the Gulf. Crude is down at this time by $1.59 or $68.28/barrel. That is $1.63/gallon. Prices are: AV.RACK FEDERAL STATE SPILL COST PRODUCT PRICE TAX TAX TAX With Tax UL REG 2.0234 0.1840 0.3055 0.0019 2.5148 PREMIUM 2.2250 0.1840 0.3055 0.0019 2.7164 ULS 2.0614 0.2440 0.3055 0.0019 2.6128 ULS RD 2.0576 0.0000 0.0025 0.0019 2.0620 I believe that crude is dropping because the U.S. dollar is strengthening against the Euro due to the problems with Greece, Spain, Italy, Ireland, etc. When the dollar drops, investors hedge by buying crude and gold, driving the prices up. The opposite is happening here. Today is recycling day in our neighborhood of Raleigh. I firmly believe that my wife thinks that she will go to heaven is she recycles enough. My neighbors have one maybe two recycling bins. Terri has six, and she could probably fill more. I always thought of it such a waste of my time carrying all those bins to the curb. My idea back in the 1980’s was to build a big recycling factory. The trucks of trash/garbage would go in one side and out the other sides would come glass, aluminum, organic matter, paper and cardboard all separate out by machines and the ingenuity of our engineers. Ever since that time, I feel like it is a total waste of my time. I solved this problem so why am I doing this. I had as part of the total idea, a mini-dumpster at each person’s house that could be picked up by a garbage truck. I guess somebody else worked that out nicely. I cannot believe the City of Raleigh has not done the math and cannot see that could pick up the yard waste the same way as the garbage, with the truck with the hydraulic arm that reaches out and grabs the can and dumps it into the truck. One could leave the top off and put drain holes in the bottom. DONE! My 12-year old son has taken over the recycling yard waste work for which I pay him. It is easy money, or much easier than what my dad paid me. I guess, like most parents, you want your kids to have it easier than you did, but you also want them to develop some character along the way and actually earn their pay. Easy doesn’t develop character does it? Best regards, -Larry H.

About that train wreck in Mebane. That is the reason that I believe hi-speed rail will have to be placed up on pylons because there are too many trucks, school buses, deer, etc. crossing the tracks. Run the trains down each side of the Interstate. We already own the land. I was envisioned something like and enclose rollercoaster that would travel at 300 mph with 15 minute stops at major towns, Raleigh to Greensboro, Greensboro to Charlotte. No bathrooms, no standing room. The train would bank around the turns, just like a roller coaster, but more gently. That’s just me. Enjoy your weekend, -Larry H.
