    Best Gas Prices & Local Gas Stations in Centralia, WA

    around $3.80/gal, so much for prices dropping after Labor Day.

    when I'm home, I always fill up at Safeway, they have these credits from purchasing groceries that you can apply to gas, up to a dollar off a gallon.

    $2.99/gallon here at our 1 ancient gas station in extreme NW NC.

    It's incredibly expensive for those of us who must have a truck, and who live in rural areas as we have to drive so many miles. Costs me $70 usually to fill up my truck.

    Sort of in the same subject area, our feed prices have increased 10% as well due to inflation and supply pressure compare to last year. The little Mennonite farm we get feed from had no choice but to raise prices.

    Ha ha:Laugh

    they redid (overhauled) their plant for electrical truck vehicles… an interesting turn for a American manufacturer betting the farm. Uncle Joe will have to produce the clients. But can he make computer chips is the question:Sneaky

    I'm wondering how much it will cost for gas stations to install electric charge points for these electric vehicles. I would assume also that motels will install such points. - So the question is - how long will it take to fully charge a very low battery?

    I'd be curious how they plan on making those things work in any area of the U.S that doesn't have a big city. Won't they require a massive power supply?

    My community is power by a single strand of power line. If everyone has electric cars are they going to have to completely rerun heavier gauge line?

    Also-sidenote- these cars are extremely dangerous now when they catch fire. My Dept has studied multiple incidents in the U.S where the fire is put out and the car randomly reignites at the junkyard anytime from 1 day to 7 days after the fire is out.

    The charge will not last as well in the cold weather. Electricity companies, many of which are going ‘green’, can’t even handle the current load. And……what will riding around on this giant battery do for anyone’s health? How will they dispose of those batteries? How will anyone afford to replace one of those batteries? Never mind……just leave the thinking up to those who decide for us what we want or don’t want, or more to the point, what we can or cannot have.
