Storm Brewing

Recommended Posts

Theres a strom brewing across the pond which could go hurricane force and hit the Gulf of Mexico, funnily enough the biggest domestic pump of oil for the States.

Analysts reckon if this happens they could be testing $70 a barrell.

Inflation? nah

I want to know how you get £1 and 9/10ths of a penny a litre on the petrol station forecourt displays. They all have room for 3 digits only e.g. 91.9. How do you do 100.9 etc?

Next growth industry(for sign makers), or will they start charging round figures instead of imaginary 1/10ths of pennies?

Round figures for sure. The tenth of a penny scam is to make you think it is cheaper, always comes up as .9 never .1 <_<

Many of the petrol stations near me have been putting up new signs with extra space for more digits.

That`s a sure sign the Oil Companies are saying goodbye to cheaper fuel. :)

WTF What just happened on the FTSE and FOREX - pound spike UP FTSE spike down :ph34r:

Probably these US Durable Goods figures. With oil going higher it looks like a storm could be brewing for the DOW today B)

U.S. July durable-goods orders down 4.9%

        WASHINGTON (AFX) - 0rders for new U.S.-made durable goods decreased 4.9% in

July, the first decline in four months, the Commerce Department reported

Wednesday. The decline was sharper than expected. Economists were expecting

orders to fall 1.5% in July. Durable orders in June were revised down to a 1.9%

increase from a 2.8% rise previously estimated. Shipments of durable goods

decreased 0.1% in July after two straight monthly increases. Orders for core

capital goods equipment fell 3.7% in July, the largest drop since last October.

Ah you must be a young whippersnapper ;)

Remember when petrol was sold in gallons they used £'s then, they'll just switch back to what they did back then... So as 100.9p = £1.009 just move the decimal point and stick up a £ sign.

It's not quite true that it's always .9pence anyway, there is a Total Garage on the M4,

Cardiff Gate junction that regulary sells at prices like, 82.5 and so on. Usually

to try and beat the ASDA about a mile away.
