  • Pain In The Pump: Gas Prices On The Rise

    04/03/2018 1:05:55 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 38 replies ^ | 04-03-2018 | Staff
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The cost of gas is up across the country, including in Maryland, and is inching toward the highest price in three years. Gas is going up about a penny every other day — 15 cents in the past month. “We’ll be paying the highest prices for this time of year since 2014,” said Christine Delise with AAA. Gas companies are changing over to a different summer blend. To do so, some refineries shut down, leading to the classic market principal of supply and demand. A tighter supply means they can demand more for your fuel. Demand is...
  • Mossberg Shockwave – NFA Shorty Firepower

    Do you need a quick shorty shotgun for close quarter firepower? Have a look at Mossberg Shockwave. You’re not gonna need a tax stamp or special approvals to get this short barrel with a high-capacity pump action shotgun. But you’ll need more ammo. The Shockwave is technically a "firearm" (Class 3/NFA) due to its 14-inch barrel that shoots a 12 gauge load. Shockwave also incorporates the "bird's-head" style grip in place of the shoulder stock. Youtuber Hickok45 had a chance to do some plinking with this awesome shotgun. So, what seemingly looks like an NFA shotgun is actually classified as...

    Of all the new laws going into effect Monday (legal cannabis in California, higher minimum wages in several states, and many more), you may be surprised about which one drew the most backlash online. It appears to be Oregon House Bill 2482, which allows people who live in counties with 40,000 residents or less to pump their own gas. Oregonians aired their frustrations on Facebook over the new law. And just about everyone else in the country made fun of them.

  • As prices fall at the pump, some U.S. lawmakers eye gas tax hike

    Reuters on Yahoo ^ | 1/8/15 | Susan Cornwell and Timothy Gardner
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As U.S. gasoline prices plunge to the lowest level in more than five years, some U.S. lawmakers see a golden opportunity to bump up taxes at the pump to help pay for the repair of crumbling roads and bridges. Fuel taxes have been flat for more than 20 years, starving the Highway Trust Fund of revenue used for rising infrastructure repair costs. Lawmakers have fueled the fund with last-minute short-term injections of cash, but want to find a more permanent fix. Last July, before a similar deadline, Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee and Democrat Chris Murphy...

    Drivers and homeowners scrambled to secure fuel for their cars and generators in the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday as storm-hit gasoline stations started to run dry. More than half of all gasoline service stations in the New York City area and New Jersey were shut because of depleted fuel supplies and power outages, frustrating attempts to restore normal life, industry officials said. Reports of long lines, dark stations and empty tanks circulated across the region. Some station owners were unable to pump fuel due to a lack of power, while others quickly ran their tanks dry because of increased demand...

    WASHINGTON _ The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project. Tuesday's vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably.

    Memorial Day normally kicks off the summer vacation and heavy driving season, but with gas prices at the pump more than twice as expensive as they were two years ago, American families are being forced to stay close to home and pull back on normal family expenses.   The cost to fill up the tank is consuming 40% more of the family budget than it did last summer.  According to AAA, 17 cents of every consumer dollar is spent at the pump, up from 12 cents one year ago.  That has consequences, of course.  "Dining, shopping, museums, and gambling are taking...

    The price at the pump has increased 28% in just the last four months, 116% since Barack Obama took office.  The reaction from the White House and the Democrats?  Punish the energy industry with $85.5 billion in new taxes – a penalty that will further discourage domestic production and sure to be passed on to consumers driving prices even higher. The President says that oil and gas should pay their "fair share."  I did a little checking and found that the industry pays an average 41.1% of net income in taxes compared to 26.5% for all other S&P industrials.  Only...

  • Why does the gas pump always initiate at $0.03? (Vanity)

    Me | 10/6/2010 | Me
    I've noticed that when I purchase gas, at any filling station, the pump will jump from $00.00 to $00.03. It completely skips $00.01 and $00.02. This happens at every pump, at every gas station I have used in Southern California. I am able to meter gas out slow enough to stop at any hundredth of a gallon, so I don't think I'm pumping too fast. I know that our online community has experts in every field so here are my questions. Am I being robbed of 3 cents? If not, is there an explanation on why this happens? I tried...
  • What Size Pool Pump To Buy?

    I have a 7 year old 40K gallon inground concrete pool and the 2HP pump needs to be replaced. We typically run it 8-10 hours a day and have a DE filter and a spa. I've had someone tell me that if I buy a smaller pump (1HP for example), I can leave it running 24 hours a day and still spend the same in electricity. The advantage being that the water is constantly being moved and filtered and stays cleaner, albeit at a slower rate. Just wanted to get thoughts on this from others here.
