外卖老板张先生说: 你就帮我省了才100多美元,也差不了多少,算了,我不换了.

答:张先生,您说您100多美元不想省,嫌麻烦我理解, 可这不符合咱们中国人的勤俭持家的逻辑呀,打个比喻,您去菜场买菜,同样的黄瓜,一堆是100元,一堆是200元,您肯定买100元的对吗,您嫌麻烦是不了解我们帮您办事的方法,我们只需要您5分钟时间,我们只需要您5分钟时间,把账单拍照后用微信发给我们就可以了, 一点都不麻烦。

还有, 您所提供的账单显示的是您一个月的价格,其它11个月的价钱您支付多少我们不知道,我们要帮您查出您一整年的平均价格,再跟我们现在帮您拿的价格作对比才能比出现在一年到底可以帮您省多少钱。

再有, 我们帮您拿的是你合同到期以后的价钱,比如您7月到期,那我们帮您拿7月份以后的价钱。这样我们做对比才能真正看到能帮您省多少钱。 而且国家预测,春天后煤气价格肯定上涨,那您省的就不是100多了,有可能是几百甚至是上千美元的。

Why are gas prices going up again?

In Southern California, the price at the pump has spiked a record 79 cents, according to AAA. Drivers are lining up to fill up before prices go up again.

“Right now we’re basically in the eye of the storm,” says Allison Mac, an analyst with

She says the problem is not the price of crude oil, which is holding steady at about $49 per barrel. The problem is at the refinery.

“In the industry we call this a first quarter climb. Every year around this time, nationally prices go up because we switch over to summer blend gas,” Mac explains. “Summer fuel gasoline is actually more expensive to produce.”

Refineries go through a maintenance cycle during the switch over. That means production is lower.

An explosion at the Exxon Mobil refinery in Torrance, California, last week made things worse and a strike by steelworkers at 12 refineries across the country is impacting 20 percent of oil production.

Nationwide, gas prices had been dropping since April but have now gone up for 32 straight days.

And if you needed one more reason to hate this wicked winter, it’s also costing you money. Extreme cold in the Northeast has slowed production at three refineries that account for more than two-thirds of East Coast oil output.

Analysts say prices will jump another 15 to 20 cents in the next few weeks, peaking in late March. But gas prices are still about a dollar cheaper nationwide than they were this time last year.
