If a ladybug sneezes in the woods, gas prices will go up.

The big question is -- what will bring them back down again?

Seems like anything that happens anywhere in the world causes gas prices to go up.

Do you think the US government shutdown will affect fuel prices?
Yes, higher

If it keeps going on, our buying power will decrease and gas will go up.

Just flip a coin. It will follow the dollar. Lower the dollar, higher the crude. NYMEX and fuel commodities are no longer being driven by balance sheets and supply/demand.

I'm ready for a new poll, but this shut down (which is only about 15% of the federal government) will not last long. Folks would probably realize that we can manage quite well without the interference from the FED.

It is slowing the economy, which will cut demand and lower prices.

The shutdown may have an effect on gas prices if the shutdown also begins to affect the overall economy. That is, if the shutdown slows hiring and spending, then gas prices will go down.

But, if this shutdown is relatively short, it isn't likely to hurt the economy or affect gas prices.

No! Prices are currently go down. Gas prices are controlled mainly by stock market speculation.

I don't think the shutdown has an effect, but prices have gone up by 8 cents in the past 4 days in my area; while outside prices continue to fall. Distributors in this area are not going let gas prices fall under $3.
