    Some camel farts funny over there and it gives speculators a reason to run up the prices.

    In the Fox Valley, most of the places I've seen have been around $3.69. Luckily, I filled up on Sunday for $3.34. But I'm probably going to have to fill up again soon and I'm not looking forward to it.

    Wow! We're at $3.15 here on average. I check in on a cheap gas finder website to locate the best deals. In the past 36 hours prices vary from $3.10 to $3.20.

    Sorry for you all...

    Gas here went up nearly ten percent in a week! Dammed those oil speculators!

    Last week I filled my rugged Toyota Tundra for $3.49/gallon. Same station on Friday is now at $3.59. Here in the Toledo area the price varies from $3.39 to $3.89.

    So this morning I pull into my usual gas stop around 7:25 am. The sign says $3.699, which it has been all week.

    While I'm filling up the truck, I'm looking around and turn to the sign and the lighted price goes dark and then comes back on with a new price - now $3.809. I look back over at the pump and it still shows $3.699 (which was a relief). When I finish, I put the nozzle back in the pump. All the prices update and it now reads $3.809.

    Hey at least they didn't stick it to me while I was pumping! I thought for a second I'd get hit with an 11 cent upcharge in mid-pump.

    I just paid $3.819 in a Detroit suburb. One of our local TV stations (this morning) said gas was going to go down and NPR said it was going to go up
    I guess that pretty much sums up the reality of it all

    $3.99/gallon for 87 octane at the cheap station near my office, though the credit/debit price is $4.09. There's a BP station near my apartment that is charging $4.39/gallon, however. Believe it or not, I'm still seeing cars fuel up there despite the 30 cent hike over everywhere else.

    Pulled in to one of my usual low price stations this morning and the sign said $3.75. The actual pump price was $3.69. Felt like I was stealing. Felt good.

    Odd that happened. I've noticed that the cost of gasoline is tired to the Oil Futures Market. On Thursday, it had a slight decline.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Up another 6 cents this morning to $3.869. Good thing I filled up Wednesday night.

    According to gas buddy, its still going up around here even though it oil has had a sharp decline over the last week. I think the owners are gouging us!

    $3.24 this a.m. Down about 70 cents/gallon from a month or two ago
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
