The cross country "Colonial" pipeline starts in Texas, goes through
Louisiana, then up east coast. It is one of two pipelines serving my
area and is shut down because there is no electricity available for the
intermediary pumping stations I got this freom a retired customer of
mine who used to work at one of the terminals along the way. He told
me he thought it would be running at part capacity in about 2 weeks,
his guess. He says this is a 50 inch line. He told me the pump gas,
fuel oil, motor oil allthrough the same line. They know when to tap
the line to get what they want out of the line. So there will also be
fuel oil and motor oil shortage out east if they don't get the pumps
I also heard the price of gas in my area is going from just over $3.00
now, to $5.00 per gallon tomorrow>
Colonial is up and pumping partially now.

Tuesday, I noticed the gas price in town was $2.66.9. I went to a
nearby farm supply and feedmill to get some feed. They have only one
gas pump there which is mostly just for their own vehicles, but anyone
can buy gas there. but the price is always 4 or 5 cents higher. When
I got there, the still had it for $2.53.9. I decided to get a half
tank or so. When I got back inside to pay, the guy said if I had
waited a few more minutes I would have paid 20 cents more per gallon.
They just called and told him to raise the price.
Wednesday, the price was $2.77.9 in town. This is in Iowa. Across
the river in Wisconsin, the price is just under $3.00. I just spoke
with friends in Milwaukee WI. On Wed. the price was $329.9 in that
(these prices are for regular).
==================Filled my car mid morning Wednesday and paid $2.87 for Premium...came
home and cleaned up the car I used this weekend then drove in to the
same Gas Station and paid $3.39 .... no more then 2 hours later...
52 Cent JUMP in less time then it took to wax a car...wow
At the Foot of the mountain under Camp David... in Maryland.
Well I guess I spoke too soon, yesterday... As I left work, the price had
shot up to CDN $1.35/Liter...here in Monteal....
So after Currency and Gallon Conversion, it is: USD$4.30 / US Gallon
They say it is due to crude prices... B.S... Oil companies are making record
profits right now, they are not suffering..
Then they say it is due to refinary capacity... Also a bunch of hogwash...
We have so many refinaries in the east end of Montreal, that I doubt we
import any refined fuel, and our refinaries were NOT affected by Katrina, so
it is JUST an excuse!!!
Category 4 storm touches land, and Category 5 fleecing by the Petroleum
Good luck, and all the best to those in the storm's path...
