  1. I’m amused that off-brand stations are charging MORE for gas than the typically highest in West Seattle; Chevron at 35th and Holden.

    Even the “discounted” 7-11 is nearly as high!

  2. Gas is so expensive. I now factor in how much gas I will use for certain trips.

  3. Yesterday, with the $.10 Safeway discount, we were marveling at the cheap 4.28 gas. Who’d ‘ve thunk it????

  4. It looks like West Seattle is having a little bit of a gas price hike, to say the least. I’m part of a campaign to boycott Exxon Mobil, the current leader in profits during this energy crisis. Check it out here https://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/send-a-message-to-the-oil-companies/overview

    Hopefully, we can all do something about it

  5. I talked with a friend down in Midland , TX Sunday evening. He is a supervisor at a refinery down there. He told me that he paid $4.01 per gallon yesterday, the first time he’s paid over 4 bucks…I’m jealous.

  6. Gas is escalatig in price because we use too much of it and because the Chinese, Russians, Saudis, and some other “developing” countries are buying cars like mad, and because the supply of oil has hit a ceiling the last 3 years. I really don’t think Exxon Mobil sets the price of a barrel of oil, they just profit off of it. The bigger question is why Exxon does not sink their current profits into solar/wind/geothermal/electric cars/ etc. so that we have a way to get around when oil runs out.

  7. One good reason to boycott Exxon though is their systematic funding of climate change denialists….
