PALMETTO STATE STILL HAS LOWEST PRICES IN AMERICA

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in South Carolina currently stands at $1.93 – the lowest mark in the United States (beating Alabama by a penny).  That’s essentially unchanged from a month ago – and way down from last year’s $2.67 mark.

It’s also below the national average of $2.19 – which is down from last year’s $2.91 average.

Obviously, that’s good news … but low gas prices have not sparked a consumer renaissance (certainly not in dirt poor South Carolina).  That’s one reason we object to proposals to raise the state’s gasoline tax.

For those of you who like to see things visually, here’s the chart …

According to another site, Gas Buddy, prices in South Carolina are averaging $1.97 per gallon of regular unleaded – although some locations feature prices as low as $1.79.

Who said I had an “internet job”. I have a job where I periodically use the internet, does that count? I do have a super good paying job though. Not quite as good as the super-duper good paying job a friend of mine has, she makes in about a month what I make in a year… but she had to sell her soul and become a lawyer to get it and has admitted she’ll likely spend eternity in Hell for it.

Excellent observation about how high gas prices were for 6-7 years.I payed $3.50 -$4.00 a gallon from Ohio to Florida to Las Vegas to Phoenix within the last year.How do families afford groceries?

Obamacare premiums are up 20-35% and wait until the millions of taxpayers that can’t afford the insurance have to pay the fines.They can’t and what do you think the IRS is going to do? Garnishment and levy’s on personal property.

It will be virtually impossible to increase the labor participation rate until the Baby Boomer generation has pass through the retirement years.

TARevolution November 13, 2015 at 10:35 am

There were millions of Baby Boomers in Bush’s terms…but he delivered a TRUE and REAL, Full-Time employment rate as low as 4.5%.

And Obama PROMISED he’d create jobs as president. He blamed the unemployment in 2012, on W. But Obama has NOT created new jobs. Raising fees, taxes and fines on companies increases unemployment.

You are just dishonest, Greedy and power-hungry people. Don’t lie about it. Everybody knows who, and what, you are, and the mess you’ve made.

Rocky Verdad November 13, 2015 at 11:24 am

Don’t worry, we’ll be at 4.5% by end of Feb.

vicupstate November 13, 2015 at 1:20 pm

I guess you are not capable of arithmetic. The Baby Boomer generation began in 1946 and stretches to births in 1964.

The EARLIEST retirement age of 62 was reached in 2008, Bush’s LAST full year in office, for just ONE of those years. Coincidentally, the Stock Market crushed that same year.

Anyone born in 1950 or before is now at LEAST 65. Many that turned 62-65 as Obama took office, postponed retirement until their Retirement funds recovered, which they now have.

Look at the chart on this link and see that Bush-43 had barely any job creation in EIGHT years. Under Obama more jobs were created in his FIRST TERM than in the entire Bush-43 Presidency.

In just TWO YEARS of Obama’s second term, 800% more jobs have been created than during Bush-43’s ENTIRE term.

Always w/ an excuse. Face it: Your guy is a MAJOR fuck up. And I think – if you look at polling data- most Americans agree that he’s a fuck-up, and a failure as a president for the country.

On top of that: you have to get into more and more convoluted Bullshit to try to cove up your failure. No one wants to hear a diatribe of excuses, especially when they can’t buy shoes for their kids on a regular schedule, or take a vacation, since Obama took office.

Rocky Verdad November 13, 2015 at 2:10 pm

Not an excuse idiot. A fact. There’s a huge bubble of fat assed old baby boomers who are hitting retirement age. We’re not even in the middle of it yet. The participation rate will continue to fall for the next 8 years. Of course of your guy was in you’de say it’s because the economy is so great they can live on one income.

That’s Bullshit. I was LIVING – and working in the media- in those years. I was assigned a story on rising gas prices every time prices went higher than $1.65 a galling in 2006 and 2007. I’d get calls from newspaper readers complaining that we were attacking W. And my editor was a Flaming liberal…and we were attacking W, because the editor HATED him.

Liars are successful vs ignorant people. Hopefully people are waking up.

GO look it up on the internet dip weed. If I’m off a year or two – let me know. Last time gas under Bush was below $2 a gallon was April 2005 (with the exception of when it went below $2 a gallon briefly when Bush ran the economy of a cliff and the economy was contracting by 8%) – Mr. Jouralist. You always say journalists are wrong, and stupid, and you are were one. You know what you are – why run from it. I’d give you the link but I enjoy watching you try and accomplish something.

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in South Carolina currently stands at $1.93 – the lowest mark in the United States 
———————————————-
It is very clear that gasoline prices are generally lower, the closer the retailer is to a pipeline tank farm(Belton, Spartanburg). The Palmetto pipeline would have tank farms near North Augusta and Savannah which would be a benefit to South Carolina consumers. This does not even address the environmental and safety advantages to pipelines
———————————————
… but low gas prices have not sparked a consumer renaissance (certainly not in dirt poor South Carolina).

Then where did the huge budget surplus come from?

April – 2016 – TAR proclaims Rubio is going to beat Hillary Clinton.
May – 2016 – TAR proclaims Trump was always the best candidate

September – 2016 – TAR screams current polls showing Hillary winning FL, OH, IA, VA, CO, NC and NM are fixed.
October – 2016 – TAR says all pollsters will have shit on them in November.
November 2016 – TAR blames Trumps sound defeat on the media, as Hillary wins 340 electoral votes and the Dems retake the Senate. He’ll go on to say it was stolen by illegal immigrants, that Democrats are covered in shit.
January 2017 – TAR will start posting a shit storm over immigration reform.
February 2017 – TAR will suffer a stroke as Hillary Clinton signs immigration reform / amnesty bill flanked by Bill Clinton and Barak Obama. (He will recover – thankfully)

Oh, and gas stays at $2.15 a gallon the entire time.
