Pain at the pump: Gas prices keep rising



Published: Thu, February 21, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

Ron Catale of Poland fills up at Big Apple Supermarket at Albert Street and McGuffey Road on Youngstown’s East Side, which had gas 12 cents lower than the Northeast Ohio average of $3.81 per gallon. Catale is among many Mahoning Valley residents feeling a pinch at the pump. According to AAA, gas prices have jumped nearly 45 cents in the past month.

Staff/wire report

Youngstown

As gas prices have increased around the area, so has frustration among many Mahoning Valley drivers.

According to a AAA report, the average price of gas in Northeast Ohio is $3.81 per gallon, 19 cents more than the previous week. The increase has created irritation, inconvenience and a search for the best prices in town.

At Big Apple Supermarket at Albert Street and McGuffey Road, gas was set at $3.69 per gallon Wednesday, nearly 12 cents lower than the area average. It’s one of the reasons Steve Corbett of Liberty went there to fill his tank. The comparatively low price gives his wallet and weekend plans little comfort, however.

“I go to Cleveland often, but now I got to think twice before I start traveling anywhere,” he said. “In the summer, I’m expecting an increase [in gas prices], but not this time of the year.”

Ron Catale of Poland stopped at Big Apple to fill his tank after attending a funeral Wednesday afternoon. He said drivers have little choice but to pay the price.

“If you don’t have gas, how are you going to get to work?” he said. “Your are kind of held captive by the whole thing.”

He said the price increase is affecting his wife more than him. Catale said his work is only a couple of miles from his home, while his wife travels to Salem every day.

“Thankfully, it’s only one of us who has to drive far to get to work,” he said. “I don’t know how a lot of people do it.”

Just a few miles south at Gateway Gas Mart on Market Street, gas was $3.74 a gallon. Though the gas prices were slightly higher than Big Apple Market, some customers shared the same frustrations.

Ernestine Marshall of Youngstown works in the health-care sales industry and stopped at Gateway on Wednesday. She said her job requires her to travel often, including trips to Akron a couple of times a week.

“I have to limit where I go now,” she said. “I’m spending so much on gas that I just try and stay in the area for business right now.”

According to AAA, rising prices are being propelled by more expensive crude, regional refinery issues and the approaching switch to summer-blend gasoline.

“Right now, things are tight worldwide,” Ray Carbone, president of New York commodities trading firm Paramount Options, told CNN. “Refineries going down, unanticipated maintenance and higher demand ... going into driving season.”

Two-thirds of the cost of one gallon of gas comes from the price of crude, which has jumped 10 percent in the last two months, according to the Energy Information Administration.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio is roughly $3.80, according to AAA. The state average is 15 cents higher than a week ago, and nearly 50 cents more than the same time last year.

The state average is a nickel higher than the national average of about $3.75, which is also 15 cents higher than a week ago.

The national average has risen 45 cents in the past month.

The survey said the lowest average price for gas is in Wyoming, where a gallon is $3.18. Drivers in Hawaii are paying the highest average, $4.28 per gallon.

That's because obama is in bed with big oil. Where are all the democrats who shouted that bush was in bed with big oil when prices rose? they are pretty quiet right now. Oh it also doesn't help when your energy secretary says that we should be paying $8.00 or $9.00 per gallon while being driven around in a government limo.

If oil prices were down it would be supply and demand, or facility maintenance or unrest somewhere in the world. But we still export more 100+ millions gallons of gasoline a day while giving these companies billions in tax breaks. So if oil goes down they can export more and create the supply and demand price raises.

And they want to export natural gas next

Gas prices went up after Katrina and the oil companies saw that Americans would pay more than $3.00 per gallon. You'll never get them to accept less than that again. Once they've seen how much they can gouge you they'll take and take and take until your wallet is empty.

Hey Vindy, glad you finally noticed the increase in gas prices. When Bush was President and gas went up a penny a gallon, it was front page news. When he left office, gas was $1.89. Now it's back up to almost $4, and prices have been rising every day since the <cough> election.

Only took you 4 years to notice, but glad you finally did.

We can close all factories and stores not on a public transportation line and of course close all farms because most public transportation doesn't go to far into the country. It amazes me how if bush was in office they would be screaming for his head for gas prices like this but the oblamer can do no wrong. He has said he prefers a gradual price change to $4 a gallon. go to Factcheck and check it out. Energy Secretary chu says the administration is ok with gas prices as they are. This is going to make us flock to renewable energy that doesn't exist.

I do agree with the government option.
Ohio minimum wage is 7.75 an hour. a gallon of gas is $3.75. Roughly 50% of an hours wages. Average politicians salary is $174,000 per year and works out to somewhere around $83 per hour. A politician should also pay 50% of their hourly wage for gasoline or around $41.50 a gallon with no extra pay for gas expenses. Lets see how long gas prices stay up then.

The reason gas prices are high is so big oil can make record profits quarter after quarter. Maybe if we add more billions of taxpayer dollars to the billions we already give them they will drop the price a few cents. Probably not.

It doesn't help that most oil futures are sold on the US market in US dollars. As the Fed keeps printing more monopoly money due to deficit spending, the buying value of a dollar decreases and the barrel price goes up.

27Boardman120(82 comments)posted 1 year, 1 month ago

Walter is correct about inflation causing the increase in gas prices. And why is inflation increasing? Because the Obama administration has increased the deficit to over $16 trillion and has to keep printing money to cover the interest payments on the debt.

And does the media ever mention this? Of course not. Dear Leader wouldn't approve.

I'll help you out with the deficit timeline.

reagan8 years of deficit spending.

bush the father 4 years of deficit spending.

Clinton had a surplus the last 3 years.

bush the idiot son had a surplus his first year because it was Clinton's budget. bush pissed away that surplus and had deficit's ever since.

Obama's first year was under the bush budget, that's how it works. Since then the deficit has been reduced under the Obama administration.

I'll be waiting for that link that shows a 16 trillion dollar Obama deficit. teabagger emails don't count.

2003: $378B
2004: $413B

There you have it. For the seven years under GWB, the total of the deficits were $2.135T. For the first 4 years under BHO, the total deficit is $5.095T. Indeed, the deficit is being reduced as the economy picks up slightly, but it is still extremely high. You can have your own opinion but not your own facts.

35cambridge(2918 comments)posted 1 year, 1 month ago

walter....thanks for backing up the fact that the deficit has reduced.

Other facts that should be considered are bush inherited the strongest economy in history, a budget surplus and the formula for paying off the debt. He pissed away the surplus and his policies brought the worlds economy to ruins.

Obama inherited an economical disaster along with a republican party who's only agenda was causing Obama failure at anything he tried to do to stimulate the economy.

It would be like a person having one thousand a month in income and two thousand in spending. If you reduce your spending by five hundred a month that is a significant reduction in the deficit but the debt keeps piling up because we don't have the revenue to cover the interest on the debt that bush ran up. The teabagger/republicans are against actually paying for the debt bush ran up so we are where we are. Tell me I'm wrong.

Cambrige, I don't recall saying the entire debt belonged to the Obama administration.National debt under past administrations. Reagan 2.9 trillion, HW Bush 4 trillion, Clinton 5.6 trillion, GW Bush 10.6 trillion, Obama 16.4 trillion. The largest increase has been under the current administration and they have done it in one term where the others were in for two. The facts speak for themselves.

rts....try reading the post just above yours really slowly a few times.

If bush just stayed on the same path Clinton laid out we wouldn't even have a debt right now. bush cut revenue and increased government spending to the point where the current revenue and budget cuts wont even cover the interest on the debt he ran up. You seem to conveniently ignore that fact.

If you want a balanced budget while not adding revenue with tax increases then break down more than a trillion in budget cuts. Tell me the programs cut and the savings from those cuts that add up to the more than the trillion we're looking for.

Well, if we're going to talk about borrowing money and increasing deficits, we have to talk about defense spending. In 2000 defense spending was 300 billion. In 2011 it had risen to 700 billion. Spending increased every year for ten years. The increases alone account for 2.7 trillion borrowed dollars.

I am truly astonished that there are some people who are still blaming Bush for the crappy economy we have. Sorry, Dems, this is all your boy's fault. Gas was $1.89 when Obama took office. It is now up to $3.89 and still climbing. Unemployment is still hovering around 8%, when we were told if we only spent that $787 billion it would come down. The US borrows 40 cents for every dollar it spends, and you seem okay with this.

I guess it explains why this area is such a craphole. You people vote for these liars over and over and never blame them for the sorry state of affairs. Not the sharpest tools in the shed.

http://www.vindy.com/news/2013/feb/11...

Tell me you have seen people in your business asked to see MSDS data sheets and I'll call BS. It doesn't happen because you will get run off and you know it.

I've worked in and around many industries. I was a union steel worker before I left Ytown. Since then the most notable industries were big oil, bio-pharmaceutical and micro electronics. Big oil is the industry with the least regard for safety or the environment by far and you don't give me any reason to believe big gas is any better than big oil in those regards.

I've said it many times, I'm not against drilling for gas and oil. If all you used were water and pressure I would have no problem. It's all the hundreds of chemicals for the protection of the pipe at the expense of the environment that I have a problem with. You can make more pipe but you can't make more water.

So you might BS other people but you're not going to BS someone that spent decades working out of a union hall that's built every refinery in the Bay Area for the past hundred years.

I split my three hundred between three different charities for the 911 victims.Then came an unfunded trillion dollar tax cut, then trillions on two unfunded wars, then a unfunded 800 billion dollar drug program for the drug companies, tens of thousands of manufacturing companies getting tax breaks while moving their manufacturing to China, economic policies that let wall street and the big banks manipulate the worlds economy into a crash and then on his way out the door told the US taxpayer to fork over another unfunded 800 billion to those banks with no obligation for them to pay it back.

All that unfunded money went on the debt and started collecting interest by the minute without even enough revenue to cover that interest. Like I said bush worked real hard at it. Hope that helps you out and you're welcome.

UTICA SHALE HAS NO SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. AT LEAST BY CUTTING BACK ON DRIVING OR AVOIDING IT ALL TOGETHER, YOU HURT BIG OIL BY NOT PURCHASING THEIR PRODUCT. LESS OF THE PRODUCT PURCHASED MEANS LOWER PRICES. DON'T BE A BABY UTICA, COME UP WITH SOME IDEAS AND QUIT WHINING

hman....Clinton "made a mess of Monica's dress and perjured himself in front of congress".

bush made a mess of the strongest economy in history and lied about Iraq having WMD's, a nuke program and being involved in 911. All the time bush is telling these lies he is having troops that have bin laden cornered in Tora Bora sent to Iraq letting bin laden escape. The results...thousands of Americans killed, tens of thousands wounded, hundreds of thousands Iraq's killed and trillions in American treasure pissed away.

President Bubba is America's most popular President, on the other hand, your boy bush screwed things up so bad the country elected a black guy....twice!

He won get over it, spoken like someone on entitlements!!! The working class are over it but what can we do now!! gas at almost 4.00 a gallon (he would like it at 6), and as said above wait until the healthcare mess really kicks in. And by the way that pay cut in Jan thank your boy for that too. (and by the way its not the last this year either) Fortunately, even the usually passive American people are finally awakening from their sleep and realizing what the heck is happening!! The lies, the arrogance, the attitude is finally showing through. Impeach!!!
