Bought these at a farm sale. One is actually a kerosene/diesel can (blue) but I use it anyways for gas.

Media pushing a gas panic? Haven't noticed here but I don't pay a lot of attention to most of what the media says.

It is a general panic buying of staples.  We had huge shopping traffic from Ilinois today because of their crazy "stay at home" order.  So a place with no infections is now being threatened by this incited panic.  People are buying up staples around country out of fear the stay-at-home orders will spread.  So we thought it best to stay a step ahead of the mobs rather than wait for gas price to hit rock bottom.

No milk, no bleach: Americans awake to coronavirus panic buying

In Union, New Jersey, a Target opened at 8 a.m. and had sold out of its full stock of milk and bottled water five minutes later. In Austin, Texas, some gas station pumps ran dry. Not a bottle of bleach could be found at a Home Depot in Fairfax, Virginia.

That is interesting.  The station we loaded up at last weekend at $1.24 is now $1.13.   Maybe local demand increased?

I had to go to town to the dentist yesterday. Had a filling fall out and was becoming a problem.
Anyway, decided to grab a few supplies and fill up.
Price was $2.18, the lowest it has been here.

Possibly I suppose. This area got the stay at home pronouncement a couple days ago.

$1.66 @ Kroger this morning. I wondered how long there would continue shooting themselves in the foot. Other places as much as $0.15 less cash price.

$1.07 to $1.09 today in Northern Kentucky.  Never thought we would again see less than $20 a barrel oil, or even less than $40!  Interesting to see ICE vehicles being once again cheaper to run than electric.

Wow.

Not sure what it is here currently. Last week it was 1.67 when the wife filled up, but I haven't been to town close to 3 weeks now.  :-\

Yep. Filled the last 2 today and squeezed off the car tank.
Freaking $1.45
Lowest I've seen it since about 2000 when it had raised to about $1.85 and everyone was freaking out.

Lol.  ;D

Lets see. Yesterdays road trip for pea gravel was uneventful. No broken axles nor blown tires.....Gas was still 1.29.... ;D . New convenience store owners have not installed a pizza oven yet..... >:( ::) ;D


Picked up enough material yesterday to finish the mower ramp so I'll work on that.
Also have a little gravel left in the trailer I need to get out.
Need to tie up the hydraulic suction hose on the boys truck. It's practically dragging. Looks like the holder bracket is broken.

Ahh just odds an ends looks like. Found a bag of lime in the shed I need to get in a few spots on the garden. Hopefully the wind won't come up when I do that.   ::)

Wife and GD's broke quarantine today  ::) and headed to church in the new ride.
It needs gas so we'll see what the price is south of us when she gets back.
