Bad news...gas is going to get expensive

OPEC deal to cut production = higher prices at the pump. Lots of other countries following suite...not good.

its going to go up faster than that... anyone who owns a gas station is looking to make profits immediately... gas here in SC went from $1.81 three days ago to $1.99 this morning.

It takes a little while before it catches up, but this has been a long time coming. Gas is definitely going to go up though. The market has already spoken and suppliers will pile on. Hopefully it's not really bad.

I doubt it will last. Gas prices hurt the general economy too much. Once we get the new admin in place? The market will rule...

It will go up a lot in the short-term as speculators get excited and purchase futures, but then it will fall to a more reasonable real market-driven level. But yes, I'd expect gas to range anywhere from $2.50 - $3.50.

I guess this is gloating now, but my daily driver is a Prius. You can pick up a 3 yo used electric car as a DD for $9-13k nowadays too!

^^^ This! Do you guys not remember this??? Luckily I didn't have a V8 that craved premium 3 years ago, but it did peak over $3 right after I got my car. It will ok guys, especially once the new administration takes hold.

I got 30mpg on a 100 mile trip with my 2SS A8 last night. Burned real gas, not the food-mixed gas.

Once new sources of oil are opened up in the US, OPEC will be irrelevant. This is their last gasp.

Good thing I didn't cut it close enough on budget to worry about gas prices. If you have to worry about gas prices, you shouldn't buy a Car that gets bad gas mileage to begin with. I'm not saying OP did, just that it's a bad idea to purchase a performance car if you ever have to worry about gas prices affecting how you budget.

That's why I am keeping the Camry. This car is not built for long daily commutes.

This bad news was already written on the sticker before you bought the car bud.

The last thing on my mind was fuel economy or gas prices when I bought my ss. I could care less unless it gets to 5$ a gallon plus lol. My car is my dd and is down getting cammed and supercharged as we speak. If it gets that bad I'll just pick up a 2011 Audi S4 or something.
