Fuel price Bellingham

Went for a boat ride today!!!

Went to the fuel dock before prices started back up.

Today's price at Harbor Marine in Bellingham Harbor for diesel is $1.94 plus tax. With tax it came to $2.11.

Glad I did not have full tanks.

Wow, factoring in the exchange rate, ours is about the same price, sadly its per litre though. I guess everything is relative - when we are allowed to undertake recreational boating again I was also thinking of filling her up because of the cheap fuel

George, it`s around $1.33/litre on the marinas (though NOT d`Albora). Cheapest servo diesel price in my part of Sydney is $1.20, though in western suburbs I bet it`s closer to $1.00.

In Sweden, about 14.95 Swedish Kronor/liter now. After conversion & today's exchange rate that works out to about $5.67 USD/US Gal.

With the Dem's in control expect fuel prices to hit $4+ a gallon before the end of the year.

Ouch. But even so, fuel is still the cheapest part of boating.

I hear that so much I question it’s validity.

Oak Harbor Marina website says $2.40 less $.05 for over 100 gallons as of 2/2/21. Better give Willy the secret to getting it for $1.23 before he rushes down from LaConner!

The secret was to buy May 1, 2020 when I made the post for $1.23 / gal.

Island Cessna,
My fuel burn dosn’t warrant rushing about for the best price.
Thanks for the thought tho. Got 45-50 gallons anyway.

Of course it could go way over $5 gal w the present world instability.

No doubt. For the last couple month, every time I buy gas for my car, the price is higher than last time. We get what we ask for (vote for).

The U.S. was/is energy independent, but the new administration seems determined to change that.

And a lot of other things that will hurt this country.

Can you point me to some data that shows this?

Yes, the fracking boom made the USA energy independent, but it's not sustainable at the oil prices we've had for much of the last year. Just look at the layoffs and bankruptcies in the US oil industry.

Climbing oil prices seem to me to be a good thing for the US oil industry, oil industry employees, mineral owners, states dependent on oil revenue, etc.

This explains much of the relationship as I understand it: https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=43796

To understand the recent rise in fuel prices it is interesting to look at a chart of diesel prices in the US over the last 3 yrs. The extremely cheap fuel prices of last year are due in no small part to the global pandemic and the economic down turn. As far as prices go we are back on track to pre-pandemic prices.
