What a Hoot!

Sence the Ethonal Mandat have you seen the prices of Corn Products?

I could buy 5 ears for less then a dollar.

Now lucky to find two worm ridden ears for the same.

Ethanol lays waste to most synthetic rubbers used in car and trucks.

Crazy Chit here.

Yeah Don yw, and I like the chart page too. http://pure-gas.org/chart It seems to be up to date. But I wonder why a lot of big cities not mentioned in the state listings. I see a lot of Conoco in Texas so I wonder if that means all Conoco's sell straight gasoline. If you search you might find one for South America.

Yeah, I didn't find that out until I clicked on the "detail" link for each station, the detail section will give you updates on each location which are posted by the general public.

So there maybe some of the stations where it isn't marked up as much if you not in an area like mine that has a lot of boats.

I also found that some of the "untainted" fuel is the "Plus" gas and not regular grade

Pretty sad how the government has to meddle in big business... in this case the oil industry. They are too busy taking profits to see how it affects all of us on a daily basis. They have expense accounts that pay for fuel or this crap would end... But to be honest i complain at every fill up but it never stopped me from my 300 mile prospecting trips every weekend... The first step in correction of this problem is possible on election day....

I was going to say, this has been going on with Propane for as long as I can remember, You take a 5 gallon propane tank in, If you only need 3 gallons to top it off, your going to pay for a min. of 5 gallons. its like that here in Mariposa, Monterey, or other towns in the screwed up state of Calif.

Fellow Conservatives:

This is U.S. Senator Jim DeMint.

You may remember the slogan "It's the economy, stupid" used by Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential campaign to make the point that George H. W. Bush had not adequately addressed the economy.

Clinton's political strategist, James Carville, posted the phrase inside campaign headquarters as a way to keep the team focused and on message. The phrase later became the de facto slogan for the Clinton election campaign.

The slogan is relevant again in 2012 as Americans consider Barack Obama's dismal economic record, but if you consider yourself a freedom-loving American, I have a different slogan for you.

"It's the Senate, stupid."

Most Americans are focused on the presidential race right now, but winning the White House -- as critical as it is -- won't be enough to save the country we love without a strong, conservative majority in the United States Senate.

  • Without a conservative Senate, we won't repeal Obamacare.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won't balance the budget.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won't secure our borders.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won't stop the bailouts.
  • And without a conservative Senate, we won't enact the pro-growth policies needed to get America back to work.

If you're reading this letter, chances are, you follow current events more closely than most and you probably understand the point I'm making -- winning the Senate is key to restoring America's greatness.

The simple fact of the matter is this: a Republican president without a conservative Senate is a waste of a Republican president.

A president can campaign on good policies, but he doesn't write the bills. As long as liberals are in charge of writing legislation, it will be difficult for a Republican president to sign the right bills into law.

Does anyone think Harry Reid will ever send a bill to the President's desk to repeal ObamaCare? The answer is "no" and that's why I am focused on sending strong conservatives to the Senate who will make that a reality.

As we head down the home stretch of the most important election in our lifetime, my challenge to you is this: keep your focus on electing true conservatives to the U.S. Senate. These Senate races aren't getting the same media attention as the presidential race, but they're no less important.

This is why I founded the Senate Conservatives Fund, an independent, grassroots organization that helps elect principled leaders to the U.S. Senate, and it's why I so strongly support its efforts today.

SCF has endorsed eight standout leaders in 2012:

  • Josh Mandel (Ohio)
  • Ted Cruz (Texas)
  • Jeff Flake (Arizona)
  • Richard Mourdock (Indiana)
  • Deb Fischer (Nebraska)
  • George Allen (Virginia)
  • Tom Smith (Pennsylvania)
  • Dan Bongino (Maryland)

These candidates share a strong belief in the principles that make America great and they understand the critical role the U.S. Constitution plays in preserving our freedoms.

These candidates support all of SCF's policy goals, including:

These leaders also have records that prove they not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk. And they've all shown the courage to stand up to their own party's leaders when it was necessary to support and defend our principles and values.

So if you agree that winning a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate is vital to our nation's future and if you're willing to engage in these races even at a time when the media ignores them, then please do three things today.

  • Sign up for SCF email updates so you can stay informed.
  • Make a contribution to help SCF's endorsed candidates. Without financial support, these candidates won't be able to get their message out.
  • Forward this email and encourage your family and friends to support these outstanding Senate candidates.

Thank you for your commitment to principles of freedom. We live the greatest country in the world and if we work together in smart and effective ways, I'm confident we can preserve it for generations to come.

Respectfully,

Jim DeMint

United States Senator

The Senate Conservatives Fund is a grassroots organization with more than 100,000 members that raises money for conservative candidates running for the U.S. Senate. SCF is an independent organization and is not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.

What I find amazing is the price of diesel fuel for my truck!

Diesel used to be just be a byproduct of refining. Now that they have to get all the sulfur (and, as a result, the lubricity) out, then put additives in at the distribution center (because Jet A and Diesel go down the same pipes from refineries to distro and additives would screw up Jet A)... the damned cost is through the roof!

What a load of malarkey! That one price has done so much to detriment the economy because everything you bought in your house, and the house you're likely in, was delivered by a truck using diesel.

The price of diesel has gone up as much as $4 in the last 5 years. It has been holding relatively steady at +$3.25 over what it was, and should be, thanks to not only the economy (vicious circle), but also largely because of the EPA mandate to Ultra Low Sulfur (ULSD, 5ppm). Never mind the havoc it has played in the fuel systems of trucks built to run LSD 500ppm fuel. I've had to get new injectors because of lubrication issues.

I now spend an extra few cents per gallon to add in additives to ensure proper lube.

I went BioDiesel for a while and loved it for both the fuel and $1.23/ gal. But I dang near had a Federal case against me for not paying $0.18 / gallon tax. And AZ BioDiesel is always out when I need fuel.

This subject always gets me pissed off

:2mo5pow: GAs is over $4.60/gallon , now, in this state of "boutique" gasolines. Average of $0.30 jump in prices overnight. THe number of people hypermiling on SAn DIego fwy's is going up fast!

REfinery problems and maintenance to get ready for the switch to cool season gas has led to shortages here in Cali. EPA is a boondoggle with their ethanol gas- driving up fuel costs, decreasing mpg, increasing fuel costs, increasing maintenance costs, and now they want to go to 15% ethanol :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: :2mo5pow: .
