Factors That Affect Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices

Gasoline prices seem to be one of the most looked after index in recent months. People seem to be wary of the rising gas prices and have become more concerned on how this will affect the other aspects of every day life. Of course, with such an essential necessity as gasoline, there would be many things that would in fact be affected in the worse sense.

As the sudden rise in gasoline prices have made people become more concerned, it would also be very important to know about the different factors that give rise to such increases in the first place. There are four main elements that affect the pricing of gasoline in the retail market, primary of which is the price of crude oil in the world market.

Crude oil is the initial raw material from where gasoline is refined and derived from. Crude oil, a majority of it, is sourced and supplied from Middle East countries. It is these countries that have control over the price of crude oil in the world market. Countries that get their crude oil supply from these oil producing countries are the  most affected by the sudden increase in crude oil prices. Overall, crude oil pricing affects about 75 percent of the price tag for gasoline in the retail market.

Fuel Economy Versus Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices

Rising gasoline prices has become a fact of life. The problem is that there is nothing that most people can really do about it except expect it. The reason for this is because of the total dependence of countries in fossil fuel to keep and maintain their industries.

For so long now, most countries have been dependent on fossil fuel such as gasoline and crude oil to provide the power for industries as well a majority of the transportation needs of the people. It is a fact that most cars running in today’s streets have either gasoline or diesel as fuel. It has been the same situation for several decades now. This dependence on fossil fuel to move the gears of industry and the society makes crude oil exert quite an influence on the economy, lifestyle as well as the future of many countries.

The influence is far reaching. Fossil fuel accounts for a majority of the energy and power needs of countries all over the world. Without it, countries may suddenly fall into chaos. And such events may likely happen in the near future as crude oil supply gets scarce while the demand for it still grows. Fossil fuel such as crude oil is not a renewable resource. At some point in the future, it may run out.

Gasoline Prices And Hybrid Cars

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices, Hybrid Cars

The appeal and popularity of various hybrid cars have grown especially with the concerns about high gasoline prices as well as a worsening air pollution. Here are some bits of useful information that would help you learn more about hybrid cars and how they may help you save on gas and be somehow protected from worries about rising gasoline prices.

A hybrid vehicle is a type of car that makes use of at least two different fuel sources to make it work. Both fuel sources usually are being used together in some instances to help propel the vehicle more efficiently. There are several different combinations possible for hybrid cars, but the most common hybrid car so far is the gas-electric hybrid.

The gas-electric hybrid car, also known as the hybrid electric vehicle or HEV, is known to make use of a gasoline internal combustion engine or ICE and a separate electric motor to help power it. While the ICE makes use of gasoline to make it run, an electric battery is used to store the electrical energy that powers the hybrid car’s electric motor. The HEV usually has a gasoline engine that is smaller than a conventional one used in standard gasoline powered cars. Use of more advanced technology makes this possible and allows the HEV have better running efficiency as well as substantially reduced pollutant emissions.

Components Affecting Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices

With gasoline prices reaching alarming levels, more and more people would want to know what are the things affecting and influencing the price increases. Gasoline prices may not be set in as a simple manner as just any other product. There are certain components that, when affected can help give rise to gasoline prices. Here are those components:

Crude Oil
Gasoline comes from crude oil. A bulk of the crude oil supply for the global market is located in the Middle East. This region accounts for about forty percent of the world’s supply of crude oil. And in this region has an established organization called OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) that sets the price of crude oil produced by their member countries. The OPEC also sets the rate of production at which each member countries should try to come up with periodically in order to set up a stable enough supply according to demand.

Refining
Price of crude oil is set on a per barrel basis. One barrel of crude oil contains 42 gallons which is then refined to become gasoline. Each barrel of crude oil then yields approximately 19.6 gallons of gasoline. Remaining yields include distillate fuel oil, residual fuel oil, jet fuel, and other products. The refining process may also affect the price of the end product.

The price of oil in the world market is based mainly on demand for it. When there is an increasing demand for gasoline in many parts of the world, particularly in the United States, crude oil prices tend to go up. The price of crude oil may also be affected by political happenings in some major areas of the world. Local conflicts especially in various oil producing countries which may have an effect in the world supply of crude oil may also have an effect on its price.

Car Mileage And Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices

Car mileage matters especially when you have become concerned with the rising gasoline prices. Using a car with a good mileage for every gallon of gasoline that you use would allow you to save up quite a lot. Bette mileage is not just reserved for newer and better cars. In fact good mileage can also be enjoyed even by older vehicles. Mileage of your car actually depends on several factors.

One of the main factors that affect a car’s mileage is how you drive. Driving manners and habits have a great deal to do with car mileage. For example, a driver prone to sudden accelerations and heavy braking can use up quite an amount of gas per distance traveled. This is because quick accelerations and sudden braking can use up more fuel since it puts the vehicle into sudden strains. In fact, aggressive driving can actually affect fuel economy by as much as 30 percent in highways and about 5 percent in town and city inroads.

High speed driving may also affect a car’s mileage. Driving fast usually increases a car’s aerodynamic drag. This means that the faster that a car travels, the greater the wind resistance becoming a factor in fuel economy. Habitual idling can also affect a car’s mileage. Frequent idling uses gasoline but adds zero miles on the counter and therefore affects the car’s mileage.

Tips To Survive High Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: Gasoline Prices

Gasoline prices have seen its highs just recently. It seems for a moment that there would be no let up for the recent experience of rising of gas prices. It is a good thing that the price of crude oil might have gone down a bit. But it seems that this might just be for a little moment.

There would be no guarantee that the recent rise in gas prices already had reached its plateau and on the way of going down. It would only be some time before the crude oil prices may again be rising to record levels. Although the demand for oil in the world has gone down a bit, it does not mean that less and less people might need it. In fact, the demand for oil is still great and that this demand may once again bring a rise in crude oil and gas prices.

And with the recent rise in gas prices, car driving has become quite an expensive activity.  Cars, for the most part, are a necessity for a great number of people. Only a few might be thinking of giving up driving because of the high gas prices. More people would instead be thinking of surviving the recent rise of gas prices. Surviving for some might be applying some means of saving up on the fuel used when driving. One way that this can be done effectively is by improving the car’s mileage. Apart from buying a new car with better mileage, it can also be possible to improve the mileage of your current car. Here are some tips that might help you out.

Diesel Fuel Prices Versus Gasoline Prices

Author: Cars Reviewer  |  Category: India Cars Review

History has it that the gasoline prices have been higher than the diesel fuel prices.  But then again, this does not always hold true.  During some winters, the demand for distillate heating oil increases which also raises the price of diesel fuel—so much so that is becomes more expensive than gasoline.

In the United States since September 2004, the price of diesel fuel has been by and large higher than the price of gasoline all year round and this is due to numerous reasons.  The worldwide steady increase of demand for diesel fuel and other distillate fuel oils has put pressure on the tight global refining capacity—more so with the strong demand of such products in China, Europe, and the United States.

The transition from low sulfur diesel (LSD) fuel to ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel in the United States has affected the diesel fuel production and distribution costs.  This is due to the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards for diesel fuel sulfur content.

Another reason for this shift in the norm between gasoline and diesel fuel prices is that the federal excise tax on the latter is higher than the tax on gasoline.
