    Still the same price. Not filling my truck until March now.

    $3.17/gal this AM in Tallahassee. Low early last week was 3.07

    Tuesday. Prices in Toledo shot up 25 cents. Managed to get it for $2.94 just before it shot up to $3.19.

    I found an old receipt from the end of January of last years. I paid 2.099/gallon on 1/30/07.

    It's gonna be $4.50 by summer folks.

    $3.19 in the panhandle, and I've gotta drive 800 miles this weekend. Crap. Gas will be WAY more expensive at interstate exits. Still cheaper than flying, though.

    I read earlier today that if it keeps going up at the rate it is now, it will be $12/gal in 8 years. $12!!!! Now what would your miles per dollar be at that rate? But honestly, I think something will happen between now and then that will reduce worldwide demand, and some of the things it might be scare the bejesus out of me. If I could pre-order a Loremo, I'd do it, but they have no firm plans of even selling in the US yet.

    Last month, when driving to Death Valley, I passed a station in this middle-of-nowhere crossroads. They were over $4/gal. I guess they have to pay the delivery guys extra to go to such an out of the way place.

    $3.45 but who is counting here in the golden state, i am use to high gas prices. I am by far no economist (i did minor in it though) and it is all about supply and demand. The days of cheap 99 cent a gallon unleaded fuel are long gone because we are in competition for petroleum with the booming Asian markets of India and China as well as the rest of the world, not to mention it is now harder, and more costlier to pump, produce and ship crude oil than it was in late 70's (when oil supposedly peaked in production). The tipping point for the average daily consumer to really change their behaviors and habitats of driving may be $4.50-$5 a gallon, but until then, we keep our foot on the pedal and pounding the pavement on 4 wheels.

    The gas map is cool. I didn't know that things were so "green" in my county. Wise folks here know that the cheap gas is in Wyoming. (There's also fireworks!)

    Recently bought gas for the first time in two weeks or possibly more. I just don't drive much any more. Having a 7-minute commute in the mornings and in the evenings with occasional errand runs to places close by are helping me from buying lots of gas. Anyways, I bought it at $1.037/L.

    According to the gas map for Canada, I'm in the forest green zone.

    I believe its between 3.25 and 3.49 here in Chicago, it generally gets cheaper the furthur out you get from the central city. Prices seem like they've been steady for quite a time now, but I'm sure they'll go up again. Personally I'm all set with my $95 a semester U-Pass, save for the occasional taxi or Metra ride.

    Purchased gas on Friday, in suburban Springfield Township, for $3.07. When we went to breakfast earlier in the day I noticed the Sylvania Township prices in the $3.11 range.

    $2.80s and $2.90s throughout North, West and East Toledo. Only in the South including metro areas is it high.

    Paid $2.89 at BP on Saturday on Alexis. Later saw $2.85

    Still $3.09 this morning (Shell - Powers Ferry/New Northside @ I-285).

    Just don't blame me if the price jumps up during the day.

    Hi All - Bit of a significant day for me. Today for the first time I spent more than £50 filling up my car (at today's exchange rate that's more than $100 for a tank of diesel for a Mazda 6). It was £1.12 per litre which I reckon to be about $2.01 per litre so $7.60 for a US gallon of petrol.

    Just thought I'd put a bit of perspective on things. Of course even at these prices, people here still don't base driving behaviour on cost or availability of petrol...

    Get used to it. As long as we're causing havoc, the price will be high.

    It's jumping here. Paid $3.07 on Saturday and this morning it said $3.22. I don't understand a 15 cent/gallon rise in three days.

    I think this says a lot and I do not for a moment think the majority of US drivers will change their ways. Yup it was $35 bucks yesterday for me to fill up my tank but I still love my car and have no forseeable way to change my commute that is not a time eater.

    I think the average person will give up Starshmucks before they change their driving ways.

    Glad I filled-up this past weekend. Driving past some stations in suburban Sylvania Township, their signs now proclaim $3.46 for regular.

    Right now my husband has two plumbing trucks online and is spending over $200 a week in fuel. He can't change his behavior, he would go out of business. He feels guilty charging more to help with fuel costs but I told him that he has to raise his prices some to keep from having his profit disappear.

    One of his trucks is a diesel, when he bought it diesel was cheaper than gas. What happened?
