Gas now above $5 gal again in Las Vegas

Las Vegas gas prices surge past $5 a gallon again

By Mick Akers
Las Vegas Review-Journal

After weeks of decline, gasoline prices in Las Vegas have spiked 24 cents in the last week and have topped $5 a gallon again.
The average retail price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas Monday in Las Vegas was $5.09, according to AAA data. That’s up sharply from the $4.85 average seen in the Las Vegas Valley on Sept. 19.

Issues seen at oil refineries are mainly to blame for the recent gas price surge.
“Gas prices across the West and much of the Midwest have been on the rise due predominantly to oil refinery maintenance both planned and unplanned,” said John Treanor, AAA spokesman. “It has all affected oil supply.”
The national average for a gallon of gas is up 5 cents in the last week, sitting at $3.72 Monday.
The recent behavior in the gas market across the U.S. is one Patrick De Haan, lead petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, hasn’t seen previously.
“One of the longest gas price declines on record has finally come to an end after 14 weeks, with gas prices shooting up in several regions amid myriad refinery issues from the West Coast to the Great Lakes and in between,” De Haan said Monday in a blog post.
“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a wider gamut of price behaviors coast to coast in my career,” he added. “A slew of unexpected refinery disruptions, including fires and routine maintenance, have seemingly all happened in ashort span of time, causing wholesale gas prices to spike in areas of the West Coast, Great Lakes and Plains states.”
The recent price spike could be just the beginning for areas on the West Coast like Las Vegas, as De Haan is forecasting future increases.
“Those areas could see prices spike another 25-75 cents per gallon or more until issues are worked out,” De Haan said.
Statewide the average price for a gallon of gas hit $5.10 on Monday, up 19 cents in the last week. The average price in Nevada is up $1.19 compared to the same date last year.
After a string of days with prices at $5.61 per gallon, the record high, gas prices in Las Vegas saw a steady decline between June 17 and Aug. 15, according to AAA data tracked by the Review-Journal. The price then fell again daily between Aug. 16 and Sept. 12, when prices began to creep back up.
The recent increases come even as oil prices have fallen to levels not seen since the beginning of the year, Treanor said.
“Important to mention that oil prices are now down below $80 a barrel for the first time since January,” Treanor said.

Your welfare check comes in hand, doesn't it?
I’m sure you’re more familiar with government checks than I am. I just pay taxes, you’re welcome.

If you’re having trouble affording gas I can lead you to resources to help you manage your finances and career.

If you don’t want help, work harder. Welfare is hardly any money.

Stop whining and pick yourself up by the bootstrap.

Maybe if you stop eating avocado toast, drinking Starbucks, and major in a useless major at University of Phoenix… you’ll be able to afford gas
Do you even own a gas burning automobile?

I do and I don‘t sit around lamenting the gas prices. When I bought my first rig a 1965 Olds Cutlass Supreme ($600) gas was 0.30 a gallon. Shit has constantly gone up since then (1970). That’s life, you can either waste your time and energy worrying about it or go forward and adjust your habits. I drive a lot less now and find that I have more time to read, play golf, hang with my pups, walk a couple miles a day, swim, cook, watch sports gamble on line….The less time you spend whining about things you have no control of or pointing fingers at one political party or the other, the more time you have to enjoy and appreciate what you do have.

Well, I knew you had a gas burning automobile and we have got to have fuel, a damn LOT of fuel and $5 diesel that's burning a hole in the balance sheets so forgive me of what you call whining. I guess I should do as you but to many mouths depend on what we do.

Enjoy
