Gas prices approaching $4 per
gallon, up 60 cents from a month ago

Detroit Free Press, by JC Reindl

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/18/2013 6:37:52 PM

Gasoline prices across the state are again approaching the loathed $4-per-gallon mark. AAA Michigan said the average statewide price of regular, unleaded fuel has risen 16 cents during the past week to $3.91 a gallon. That is 60 cents higher than a month ago and nearly 50 cents more than a year ago, according to the auto club’s Daily Fuel Gauge report. Prices are averaging $3.88 a gallon in the metro Detroit area. Pricier fuel can be found in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Jackson. The national average is $3.73 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Comments:
And it´s only February. Imagine the price by the time summer rolls around.

When GWB was president, every time the price of gas went up, he was excoriated by the MSM. Now, King Barack gets a pass.

It is $4 here. Someone keeps siphoning my gas out of my car too. Its been happening for months. I thought we kept running out because I´d only put $10 - $15 at a time in. But everyday?? No, somebody has been taking it. I keep telling my roommate we need to lock it every night!

Perhaps Obama wants us to impress our friends and neighbors by having us announce that "I just paid $8.50 per gallon for regular. And I got to pump it myself. It´s just like being on a driving vacation in Europe, but without the expensive airfare and silly French language.

Or, he wants to see hundreds of thousands of micro cars scurrying about as he criss crosses the country in AF1. Would make him so proud to see his subjects driving 2 seat cars they never wanted in the first place.

Presidents can´t avoid criticism when gas prices start to take off.

That´s why Obama made a habit of raiding our Strategic Oil Reserve every time gas prices rose too much during his first term in order to flood the market and bring the prices back down.

But now that he´s been safely re-elected, Obama probably doesn´t care at all about gas prices, so who knows what will happen.

It is time for a serious investigation of the mainstream media, especially JC Reindl of the Detroit Free Press.

The AP Style manual CLEARLY states that "increasing gas prices are NOT newsworthy during a Democrat administration or if Democrat party policies result in such increases. Increasing gasoline prices are only newsworthy when they can be blamed on Republican presidents or congress."

Gasoline more than doubled since Obama took office; so has home heating oil, which is like diesel. Friday, heating oil was $4.55/gallon.

Since many homes in the northeast get heat and hot water with oil, a delivery is about $800. And it´s been really cold lately. It´s common to use 1,000 or more gallons a year.

Not to mention the cost added to all our products by the high cost of delivery with diesel trucks.

Republicans won a nice victory in the Florida special congressional election yesterday, which the more gullible and/or excitable pundits are already overhyping. But via e-mail today, I received a reminder that Democrats should be rooting for an audience of two to be similarly over-interpreting the results: Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. If the justices previously believed it a safe bet that they would be replaced by mainstream liberal justices when they retire, perhaps now they´ll realize their only reasonable course of action is to retire this spring, pending confirmed replacements.

SAN FRANCISCO – Nearly 150 firefighters tackled a five-alarm blaze that burned at a building under construction in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood Tuesday evening.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — More than four days after a Malaysian jetliner went missing en route to Beijing, authorities acknowledged Wednesday they didn´t know which direction the plane carrying 239 passengers was heading when it disappeared, vastly complicating efforts to find it. Amid intensifying confusion and occasionally contradictory statements, the country´s civil aviation authorities and the military both said the plane may have turned back from its last known position between Malaysian and Vietnam, possibly as far as the Strait of Malacca, a busy shipping lane on the western side of Malaysia.

A man whose $50,000 coin collection was first stolen, then hocked, cannot recover it from Las Vegas´ famous "Pawn Stars" pawn shop. Reason: The hock shop claims it melted the coins down. According to a criminal complaint filed by the State of Nevada in Clark County Justice Court, a coin collection valued by its owner, David Walters, at up to $50,000, was stolen from Walters´ Las Vegas home in November 2013 by Walters´ niece, Jennifer Beckman. Court documents say Walters´ collection--kept in a bag hidden under a dresser--contained such rarities as a 1903 St. Gaudens $20 gold piece and Silver

That´s bad news for Democrats and probably will set off a new round of nervousness among party strategists and office holders as they look ahead to the fall.

General Motors Co.´s (GM) recall of 1.6 million vehicles could prove to be one of the most costly in automotive history. The company not only faces fines. The legal liability triggered by what could be thousands of personal injury lawsuits may be just as damaging to the reputation of GM´s important brands, which almost certainly will erode sales. At the heart of the injury to GM is the accusation that some of its employees knew about an ignition switch fault as early as 2004. Interviews of GM management in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee may draw the

SAN FRANCISCO - California´s greenhouse gas reduction law already has shaken up the state´s industrial sector, costing it more than $1.5 billion in pollution permit fees. It´s now poised to hit the pocketbooks of everyday Californians. Starting next year, the law will force fuel distributors into the same cap-and-trade marketplace as utilities and major manufacturers.

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
