Gas Prices Hold Nationally, Inch Down In SC

|| By FITSNEWS || Gas prices are in a holding pattern after recent upticks – with the average price per gallon of regular unleaded clocking in at $2.77 this week. That’s essentially unchanged from last week (and last month) – but down roughly ninety cents from the same time last year.

And once again everybody’s spending all those savings and empowering our consumer economy, right?


Ummm … hmmm.

Here in South Carolina the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded currently stands at $2.41 – down from $2.48 last month (and $3.34 last year). That’s the lowest average price per gallon in the nation, but as we’ve pointed out repeatedly our dirt poor citizens are paying more of their income on fuel than the residents of any other state save Mississippi and West Virginia.

That’s one reason why this website steadfastly opposed various plans to raise South Carolina’s gasoline tax (and other vehicular fees) during the recently concluded legislative session. Another reason? The fact state leaders have plenty of money to devote to our network of roads and bridges – they’ve simply chosen not to.

You liberals are full of shit! July 13, 2015 at 11:11 am

When gas price averages, over all of Obama’s years, are as low as the average was over W’s EIGHT years, call me.

Until then Shut the Fuck Up about low gas prices. The Filthy Liberal Secret has been that not only are taxes and healthcare costs up astronomically, the price for energy has SPIKED significantly under Obama.

Yet millions of Jobs have been lost, or cut in two, and salaries, that rose under W, have decreased EVERY year Obama has been king.

We’re in a Fucking mess. And as long as stupid shit media-ites, like FITSNews, try to sell us silver-lining Bullshit to cover for Obama, too many people walk around Stupid, which is how FITSNews and all the Obama Dick-Suckers want you to be.

I don’t want my kids to grow up in a world run by Democrats. If you care about yours, you tell FITSNews, and all of Obama’s Media ass-kissers, to get fucked. We can do MUCH better than the Fucking disaster forced on us by Obama and the media robots serving him

Obsession with Obama, random capitalizations, occasional mention of gay sex acts, couldn’t be anyone else. At least he isn’t holding punches with his use of profanity though.

The poster child for fact free rambling bullshit lies strikes again. Any idiot with a computer can discredit everything this fucking idiot says which makes it even sadder in a way. The inside of his ass must be one giant “W” poster. The same W that charges a 100k plus to show up at benefits for disabled vets..Ironically the same vets that got hurt in his bullshit Iraq fiasco.

Democrats are an anti-American, subversive, and seriously deranged political party. The Democrat Party is more like a computer virus than a serious political party with real solutions to the problems we face. Instead, the Democrat Party offers nothing but crumbs to help out the losers in life while secretly stealing trillions of dollars from hard working Americans and shuffling it through the bureaucracy. The Democrat Party is nothing more than a criminal enterprise that masquerades as a serious political party, which it isn’t.

You are a poster child for the Democrat Party.Loser.

“The former president also charged $100,000 to speak at a gala for the Samaritan Inn homeless shelter in Texas this February, according to Politico.

Lynne Sipiora, the executive director of the Samaritan Inn, called Bush’s fee a “bargain” compared to other prominent political figures like 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

grandtangosuglydog July 13, 2015 at 12:30 pm

Youre slipping private..the clintons with all the issues they have..truck loads of issues, have never charged a dime for any military benefit or charity. W, who led this country down a poorly planned road based on one thing only, ego, that any idiot could see would yield poor results, yet that idiot charges to speak at disabled vet benefits. Nothing you can say will make that right, let alone the two wrongs make a right BS you are pushing.

The Colonel July 13, 2015 at 12:38 pm

“…According to the charity’s yearly reports to the IRS, it raised about $2,450,000, after expenses, from the 2012 gala where President Bush spoke. The following year, the gala netted the charity substantially less, about $1,000,000…”

My idol Trump?!? – man I know you’ve been on hiatus for a while what with GT disappearing and all but catch up – I wouldn’t vote for Donald Trump if it came down to Hillary versus Trump. I’d write my own name in.

“… In 1992, as Kim Il-sung’s health began deteriorating …

North Korean efforts to build nuclear weapons were halted by the Agreed Framework, negotiations with U.S. president Bill Clinton. Kim Jong-il instituted a policy called Songun, or “military first”. There is much speculation about this policy being used as a strategy to strengthen the military while discouraging coup attempts. Restrictions on travel were tightened and the state security apparatus was strengthened. …” – Wikipedia / North Korea

US intelligence agencies believe that North Korea has manufactured a handful of simple nuclear weapons”

You are correct!The Democrat Party is the party of tyranny. This is a very difficult concept to portray to the American people, however, because people have the perspective that a political party in America that gets nearly 50% of the vote can’t actually be a malevolent organization that is oriented towards destroying the American culture. People just have this perspective that it is impossible for America to have an anti-American socialist party really hates contempt for its own voters. But it does. The Democrats are the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and crappy government-schools for millions of Americans.
Ann Coulter recently suggested that America should ban the Democrat Party. People do not have the right to enslave others, but that is exactly what the Democrat Party seeks to do to all of us. They want more laws, more regulations, and more control over what we, as individuals, are permitted to do. They believe that more laws and controls will mean that we will do what the central authorities at the Democrat Party want us to do.

This site used to be a reliable source of soft core porn and locker room tales of conquest and tit elation. No more Nikki tales, no more boy short panties allusions, no more Icky Dicky drama, not even an excessive Sanford email to chuckle over (“holding your two magnificent parts of you” – perhaps the most stilted sentence in email lover boy correspondence ever uddered.) Now all we get anymore is a picture of a girl in a tank top pumping gas, as we witness Will’s further decent in to middle-age morality.
