Gas Prices
« on: August 15, 2005, 09:28:46 PM »
As of Friday, gasoline here is up to $1.04/liter.  That's $4.16/gallon.  That's pretty brutal :(

You would think Canada's prices would be cheaper, since thats one of the major places the US buys its oil from.  The taxes are to blame I'm sure.

Northern Ireland's gas was £3.20/litre in 2003 (like..$8.00/gal).  Sucks to be them.

You have also understand we don't get as much imports from major oil suppliers as USA and Canada and England does, also keep in mind our economy is the worst it has been since the 1950's. I can remember all my life gas prices being high, even though the economy was ok. Also it is not 24$ a gallon it is roughly 16-18$ (USD).

How can it be $6/liter and not $24/gallon?  1 liter = 3.8 US Gallons, so 6 liter = 22.9 gallons :/

I just had some trouble with my US standard/metric and euro-to-dollar math, adding it again I assume 14-16$ is the average price per "gallon" here. Or 4$ a liter, or 4.23 euro a liter.

$2.79 today, yea it was like 95¢ couple years ago........id say in 2001-2002? maybe..... it was like $1.30-1.50 beginning of summer but went up becuase the oil people want more money, there arent many refinerys and that president in Sudia Arubia ( i think thats the place ) died. Good thing i get 30-40 miles per gallon with my car

In Canada, we measure by liters.  So multiply that by 4, it's about $4/gallon.  It's a little more than it is here, it's about $3.90/gallon now

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.

ROFL!!

Oh shit. Oh fuck. You sure schooled me. I had better watch out for the highschool educated German professor.

While we're at it: TIME MANNER PLACE
What the fuck were you trying to say anyway?
Ich fahre das Auto zur Schule?
See that? Was that hard? Since there is no time element to the sentence, MANNER comes first (with the car) and PLACE comes last (to school).
Why would you fucking use kommen anyway? You come to school with the car? Would you say that in english? I certainly fucking wouldn't.

Since when was Schule a masc/neuter noun? Since when don't you capitalize nouns in German? WHEN? IT MUST HAVE BEEN VERY FUCJING  RECDINTLY BEFAUSET I SUFRE AS FUSFCK DIDNTT EKWRNOW ABOITUST IT

You ALWAYS capitalize nouns in Germany. I suppose I had a typo, seeing that I already knew that.

I never claimed to be a "German Professor", I said I am in a german class, thus I didn't have to use a translator (for the easy stuff).

I used "Kommen" because that means to come, and I am coming to school with an automobile.
Quote
Ich komme zur schule mit dem Auto.
Ich - I
Komme = To come
Zur Schule = To school
Mit Dem Auto = With an automobile

If you put it all together: "I come to school with a car" it makes perfect since.
Quote

You don't write in German the same way as you write in English.  And if I were to say that in first person, It would be "I come to school with a car" which makes perfect since.

I don't know anything about this "Time Manner Place" deal, but I will just take your word for it.

That's a serious problem with people right now.  For some reason, they want to be able to accelerate very fast, and save the extra 2 or 3 seconds at the cost of the environment.  Are the extra seconds really so important that you would spend a ton of money on gas if electric cars were a reasonable price?

Ron, where I live you have to beable to accelerate fast, or you will get hit.  Down here in Kansas City, Missouri if you don't get going fast enough up an on ramp you will most likely get ran off to the side, or get hit..  Our on ramps are extremely small, and poorly built.

So yes, the extra seconds are really important to some of us. :)

In Winnipeg, people accelerate slow as hell, and it's a real pain. 

But I think that people need to get their priorities straight.  Everybody is so busy complaining about how much gas is costing, yet they're still driving everywhere.  I personally bike almost everywhere, and take the bus when I have to.  Alternative technologies to power cars exist, but they don't accelerate as fast! Oh no!

In Calculus today (this isn't a Calculus problem, it was just a trailoff), we were talking about gas prices.

Americans have been getting massive discounts on gas due to government reductions.  The government pays oil companies so much per galon of gas (or barrel of oil, I suppose), which causes dramatic reductions in prices of gas in the US.  The actual price of gas right now is about $4.00/gallon, so we're still seeing a somewhat significant discount compared to the rest of the world.

Buying a Hybrid right now will pay for itself in about 10.5 years, which is still somewhat of a letdown.  However, that's assuming you drive 15,000 miles a year.  If you drive more, the time will decrease.

A new hybrid (on average):  $45,000
A new small truck (Ford Ranger, Tyota Tacoma -- the most common cars on the road): $25,000

Difference: $15,000

Average price of gas in the US:  $3.25/gallon
Average miles drove: 15,000 Miles

Average gas mileage of a hybrid:  62 Miles/Gallon
Average gas mileage of a small truck:  22 Miles/Gallon

15 000 / (((15 000 / 22) * 3.25) - ((15 000 / 62) * 3.25)) = 10.4923077 Years

So yeah.  Hybrids are nice, but until they come down in price, they're still not too much worth it.  This is (obviously) an very averaged figure, so they could pay for themselves much sooner if the figures were different.  These are fairly accurate average numbers, though.

I think it's atually a good thing that the gas prices are going up like this.  It's the really the only logical thing that is going to give us a kick in the ass to develop a reasonable alternative fuel source.

Are the extra seconds really so important that you would spend a ton of money on gas if electric cars were a reasonable price?

I wasn't replying to your scenario.

However, I was replying to:

I think it's atually a good thing that the gas prices are going up like this.  It's the really the only logical thing that is going to give us a kick in the ass to develop a reasonable alternative fuel source.

That and it's still not exactly efficient.  I think we need to steer clear of the internal combustion engine, if oyu ask me.

I've seen similar solutions with E80.  They seem like a nice idea, as they are an alternative fuel source, but they're still horribly ineficient.  The internal combustion engine is less than 1% efficient.  That's sad...

Also... I forgot to mention in my previous long-winded post:

Another thing to consider with Hybrid cars is that they're a foreign car (to us, anyway).  This means parts are generally much more expensive.  When you bring one in for repairs, the bill is probably going to be a lot higher than it would be for an average American-made car.  Not that this is a fair argument, but it is still a valid point.

Two of my friends' families have space cars (the crazy electric hybrids that turn off and on when stopping/moving and charge when stopping).  They are awesome ^^

This was the Hybrid discussed in my previous message.  The standard ideal behind the Hybrids that exist today follow this model.

And Ergot:  That has been analyzed before.  Solar panels simply do not supply enough energy for a car to go 60mph for hours on end.

At NYLF Tech, we were assigned some project in which we were required to design 'the car of the future.'  We ended up making a car using cell-batteries (so it would charge extremely fast) with solar panels on top which gave you a few extra miles of driving time every hour that it absorbed direct sunlight.  Our fueling stations were Hydrogen-fuel cells.  It was actually a pretty good idea, but it would require too much change.  Converting every fueling station in the world over to Hydrogen-produced electricity would take far to much effort than it is worth at this point.  The winner in our category designed a car that was powered off of E80.  It was one of the suggestions in the pamphlet for our category... it was lame as hell.

Is it illegal to self-pump in your state? I forget where you live, but I know in NJ it's illegal to pump your own gas. I didn't like that, because one time we were in a hurry and we had this slow ass Muslim guy who took FOREVER. He walked like 3 feet/hr.

(Yes, NJ) Yeah but whatever.  I'd rather be a bit late for something then get out in non 65-72°F, sunny weather to pump my damn gas when I can have some guy do it for me.

That's pretty good.  The lowest I've seen in a while is ~$3.20 a gallon.

Canada gets free health care and doesn't pay for war or the side effects of terrorist attacks.

Stop complaining. (Not that I'd ever want government sponsored health care, mind you.)

We do pay for side effects of terrorist attacks.  Anything that affects the US tends to affect us more. 

Government sponsored healthcare is great for the average person, since it saves us a lot of money in the long run (even though it takes longer).  But if you're rich, or have a rich family, or a good job where they give you a health plan, then you're better off with the American system.

I disagree, with government sponsored health care you can only go to ones where the government says you can (meaning, most likely, the cheapest) and it could be detrimental. I'm all for privitization of health care (and other things.)

Is Katrina affecting you guys?

Because all healthcare here is government-provided, it means that there aren't any non-government facilities. 

Yes, Katrina is affecting us..  Why do you think we're paying nearly $5/gallon for gas?

The price of oil is an international price http://www.bloomberg.com/energy/  The prices differ due to taxes and such.  The oil isn't what we need though its actual gas.  There is an abundance of oil comming out of the ground, but a refinery hasn't been made in the US since 1975.

Because then people who couldn't afford good healthcare would get, as you said, the cheapest one.

So? They're already getting that now, at least with an optional government health care program, some people would go with the privatized one and in turn get better service, and potentially save the government money?

No, right now we're getting mid-level healthcare.  The waits are sometimes long, but the quality is good.  If it was privitized, the government would be using the lowest-bidder.

Aforetime crowned by lilac and lily,
Lay now forevermore slender;
And all winds that liven
Silhouette a lone existence;
A leafless oak grasping at eternity.
