Under $2.00! In 2008-09 it dropped to a low of $1.63 in my area only to shoot up again.

the average driver will use 11 gallons of gas a week, that is 572 gal. a year
the amount I think we could live with is .50 a gallon that would equate to 2% of a person salary on min. wage. Right now it is 15% of a min wage earners salary at $7.50 40 hours a week

is that math right?

In reality, it's whatever the market determines as other countries also are consuming a lot of gasoline like the U.S.

Can you say why $1.75 per gallon is a fair price?

Considering that gas hasn't been that low other than for a very short period in five years, are you willing to say that your salary should be the same as it was five years ago?

Can you say why "$2 per gallon including Tax" is a fair price?

Is it simply a round numbered price, or is there reasoning why the price should be $2 a gallon? Are you considering the cost of crude, operating expenses, profit to investors, etc.? Or are you simply picking a number out of the air?

What's a fair price for a new car? $5,000 is a fair price, I guess, though I'm not sure if that should be the fair price for a Smart Car or Volkswagon, or a Cadillac or Silverado. I guess $5,000 is a fair price for a small car and $6,000 or $7,000 for a large one. Having said that, wouldn't it help if I gave my reasoning? If yes, then why not give reasoning for picking a "fair price" for gasoline?

A fair price is whatever the consumer is willing to pay to live the life they want to live. Sell your car and walk everywhere! You no longer have the issue of the "greedy" big oil companys or politicians to complain about, however I bet you will find something else.

For those that think $1.00 is reasonable----Tax in Wisconsin is $.51 per gal.

HFAJR0034:

Can we ask why gas should be below $2. Can you give your reasoning? Especially since you previously said it should be below $1.50?

What a fair price is, is a matter of opinion. Supply and demand will largely dictate the price which I believe will be over $3.00. Most of us would like to see it much lower, that higher is the reality.

A fair price is relevant to pocket book, what kind of car you drive, gas mileage, how large is your tank (gas). A fair price seems to have settled around the $2.50 mark that seems to be the balance, lower and driving and usage picks up, over we seem to do less driving and the usage goes down. However fair to one is not always fair to another.

Since you're asking me what I think is a fair price, not knowing how much it costs to drill for, gather, refine, and distribute a gallon of gas, let alone consider research and exploration, operating costs for a gas station, and a fair profit for ownership, let alone for operating expenses for distributorships, etc., I'd say a fixed price of about $10 for a tank of gas, realizing that some people have larger tanks and would therefore get greater benefit. But, since that's not realistic, and since people here are simply picking a price out of the air, I'd say read my earlier post (below). Gas is a pretty good deal as is, and would be even if it went up a dollar or more a gallon (not that I'd like that). Especially when you consider what people pay when they buy a cup of coffee (Coffee Beanery, Starbucks, etc.) or bottled water, etc. without complaint.
