Gas ( Petroleum! ) prices
« on: April 03, 2020, 10:45:24 PM »

Alright, what are you folks paying for gas or diesel in your neck of the woods out there ???
Here in Toronto, Ontario Canada.      .73 cents per liter and .86 cents per liter.    A month ago, gas was $1.31/liter..

Last I looked ASDA was 1.02 for unleaded and 1.08 for diesel, about 10% down in no time. Before the epidemic diesel was about 1.24 at supermarkets

Around Houston, Texas gas is in the $1.50/gallon range.  Some as low as $1.35.  It was around $2.80 to $3.00 before coronavirus. 
The crude oil price war being run by Russia and Saudi Arabia, along with very low gasoline demand from many, many people staying home is killing the oil industry.   <:(
Before you celebrate that, there is a long way to go before solar, wind, and all the other "new" energy sources can begin to meet the demand.

Over here the price went down to under $1 a litre but has now gone up to $1.30+ as service stations claim they cannot survive on the margins that they had before since they are not selling the volumes they were. We have only driven a few kilometres in the last month.

Dont forget a US gallon is smaller than an imperial gallon. If they are selling in litres then obviously they're the same measure. :-))

Mr President T said he had spoken to his Mate...."The Shiek from Scrubby Creek"....who had advised he had spoken to his "Mate from Puten" and they had agreed to stop this overproduction  >>:-(  of 100,000 barrels of Crude per day


Only problem was when an independent 3rd Party [person] asked the same persons [from the Middle East & Moscow] both denied any knowledge of discussions with Mr President T, and each so ramped up daily oil production which is the real cause of the drop on the floor price of petroleum products  O0


Last week, about $1.10/litre for E10 at the moment in Sydney & $0.90 for E10 in Adelaide??.......[as Brian mentions a $0.30 rise per litre in the past few days


We sold off ~~50% of our domestic production some 20 years ago  ....[lets hope the PETRONAS refinery in Malaysia dosn't hickup, or worse still that we have a Diplomatic spit with these Northern neighbours
.......................



PS.....prior to the closure of our refinery capacity, it was a Government mandate that 40 days reserve was to be held here in Australia ....current estimates are approx 14 days........[the Government blames the Fuel Co's & naturally visa versa]

I should re-phrase this.....back when......the Australian Government allowed the three major petroleum refinery Companies ................

1. Royal Dutch Shell
2. British Petroleum
3. Multi Named hidden behind the American Chevron Oil


..........to close individual refineries and become Importers of final product Petrol


So we do have approximately 50% of "light crude" as domestic supply, however from the murky path from the undersea production platforms [that are owned by those same three multinationals]  to the end product is unknown  :-X maybe they trade light crude for finished product lubrication oils that are produced for heavy crude

We sell on LNG to Japan [by the shipload] .........the cost of LNG in the Japanese domestic market is lower than we as Australian consumers pay  >>:-(


We also sell out LNG to Korea [by the shipload] ....they filter it, lower the pressure and fill millions of little Green Cans which is exported by container ship back to Australia O0

If you use E10 (10% ethanol) in Oz, fill up soon as the ethanol will be used for other products like hand sanitizer. %%

I am hoping that diesel doesn't go off with age.

We ordered central heating kerosene yesterday and due to a boom in demand they are quoting up to 4 weeks delivery! I got a good price which I hope that they will honour whatever happens to oil prices in that time. I understand that they rose 50% yesterday after we put in our order.

Diesel fuel should be OK for several months to a year. Lots of info online. It can also become contaminated by bacteria (the diesel bug) but that is more likely to happen to boats.

Prices vary by area & Boiler Juice were very nearly the same as my order and they are quoting the same "by 28th April Delivery". Makes me wonder if it is coming from the same place!

It's interesting to hear the comments of one thing we are all dealing with during this time.

 Stay safe and drink up.

That's correct for one US gallon. One imperial gallon equals 4.546 litres.

Didn't need to buy as CLS is still 3/4 full but diesel 1.09, petrol 1.08 today, gas unknown -dont't really see gas at any stations -the fad passed for gas a good while back and wasn't available many places.  Diesel was about 1.29 last time I fueled up about a month ago.


This situation is not good for me at all as I work in O&G!  Good for the consumer, not for me in terms of employment!

All right for some.  {:-{
Try bottled gas.   We changed from that to reverse cycle air conditioning and reduced our heating bill by 2/3  :P
We had solar put in recently and that reduced it even further.  :-))

74 cents in Southern Manitoba last time I filled up... I was a teenager the last time it was 74 cents anywhere!  Good news for my truck.   {-)

So if I convert our gas price here in Florida, USA of $1.73 per gallon it would be 45.8 cents per litre.

I haven't seen a price like that here for decades.

I use to pump gas as a part time job back in high school.  Canada was just converting to Metric.  It was .54 cents a liter and most people thought is was cheap.  But what the majority didn't know that at the same time, the gas companies had slipped an increase.   We had figured a conversion at the old price should have been .50 / liter...     sneaky fellows
This was back in the year nineteen hundred and seventy nine...     damn I'm  getting old...     
It's time for another therapy appointment with Dr. Daniels.
