I live in San Bernardino, CA. I am paying around $3.35 a gallon but it has been falling dramatically.

October 13th, 2008, 07:33
Price has dropped but I haven't seen it under $3.00 / gallon yet. I paid $3.16 / gallon when I filled up Saturday.

October 13th, 2008, 07:38
Its down to $2.55 here,but you all know it's a political thing.As soon as the election is over it's going to sky rocket.Just goes to show they could have been selling it for that all along,because their not loosing money on it now.

$3.25-35 in the LA area. not fun

Still gouging in Chicago at around $3.54 a gallon. You can find it about 20-25 cents cheaper the farther away you get. Actually, in Chicago proper, you probabaly can't get gas for less than $3.74. The $3.54 was the price at a gas station near Frankfort, IL.

October 13th, 2008, 14:40
108.0p a liter is the average here at the mo, costs around 50ish to fill our car ($85.31):frown:

It was 3.65 here in downtown Dyer yesterday. I'm going to Millington (near Memphis) tomorrow, so I'll have a better idea then. The gas station here is notoriously high as he's the only one in town.

October 14th, 2008, 01:58
$2.80 to $2.85 seen yesterday in Colonial Heights, VA.

October 14th, 2008, 03:19
$2.59 coming in from Alabama in Texarkana yesterday-$2.69 in DeSoto, TX-WOW-finally below $3.00 and I bet that won't last long.

October 14th, 2008, 03:46
Had to gas up last night....$2.96 a gallon. I only put $10 worth in because I just needed a splash and dash so I could make it to the hospital to visit my wife....just hope the price doesn't shoot up by the time I get around to filling the tank. Was on "E" last night and the car began sputtering as I pulled into the station...been pretty distracted with my wife's recovery that I have been neglecting some of the simple things...gas, groceries.


October 14th, 2008, 03:54
Lowest price in the Danville, VA area has been $2.95.9 at Velero, Pilot, and Hess. Word on the street has it at $2.50.9 in Roanoke.

October 14th, 2008, 11:51

October 14th, 2008, 15:21
Our local Kmart has it posted at $.00. But they are out AGAIN.

Wonder if we're heading into another stretch where people panic and drain the town out again like they did three weeks ago.


October 14th, 2008, 15:34

$3.03 at the local Wawa Up near Reading - PA, USA !!

October 14th, 2008, 15:35

Up here in Toronto Canada we no longer buy gas in gallons, they sell gas by the litre. (a bit larger than a quart)

This makes it much easier for the oil companies to screw us up here.
But ya really need to do a bit of math to gauge the: "depth of their penetration"

1 US gallon = 3.79 litres

1 "Kanuck buck" = $0.85 US

1 litre costs $1.006 (today)

During Hurricane Ike gas shot up overnight from $1.139 to $1.349 (a financial "cavity search" - gee Doc; take off yer wristwatch, PLEASE!)

What makes this even more humourous is the fact that the oil we refine HERE in southern Ontario comes from either Alberta or the east coast of Kanada. So Ike's effect on gas price SHOULD NOT have effected us! (gee Doc; why are ya rolling up yer sleeve???)

So the equivalent of 1 US gallon in Kanadian funds TODAY = $4.38

During Ike: $5.87

Ooooohh ... these guys are good eh?

Ya wanna buy 10 gallons? That'l be: $43.80 or $58.70

Wanna fill yer full size SUV? ... Bring yer Bank Manager or sell one of yer kids!

The truth is that our local gas (in southern Ontario) is less expensive than almost anywhere else in Canada

But this gets even better....

Our Brothers in England pay twice this amount.

So naaaahh; gas is dirt cheap in many of the States ... you guys just didn't realize it.

Well, we work in Litres, and one 'Imperial Gallon' is near enough to 4.5 Litres, so at an average of A$1.60 per Litre one Imperial Gallon comes out at A$7.20.
However, a very fierce little turf war yesterday allowed me to fill up all the cars (except for the GT40R!) at A$00.94 per litre ............... :d
Didn't last for more than 24 hours of course but it was a nice change.

So naaaahh; gas is dirt cheap in many of the States ... you guys just didn't realize it.

You can't just say this without comparing incomes....

Example: The US government paid Icelanders working at NAS Keflavik way more in US$ than what someone would make on US base doing the exact same job. Why, because things cost way more in Iceland....:iidea:

We've got a Brit stationed here where I'm at and he's making out like bandit!
Why? Because the British pound is doing extremely well against the US dollar...and thus he's making MORE living in the US than he would in Britain...

If I made exactly what I make now living in Britain, I wouldn't be able to afford an apartment and definitely not a house......

Gas station I passed on the way to work this morning in JAX FLA ... 2.69 for regular.

October 22nd, 2008, 06:15
I filled up this morning
$2.69 for reg

October 22nd, 2008, 06:15
It was $2.64.9 this morning when I gassed up in Massachusetts.. I would guess that it probably 10 cents cheaper across the border in New Hampshire because of the oppressive Mass. gas tax.

Living in the Chicagoland area,.....we get socked about the hardest in gas costs. We can thank Cook(Crook) County and the politicians for that. The 'cheapest' gas I've seen around here is $3.39.9. Drive beyond Cook County and watch the price drop. Drive to the next state,....Wisconsin or Indiana,....and watch it REALLY drop...........

October 24th, 2008, 10:04
Down to $2.25 per gallon.........
