I heard yesterday that public transportation will be going up and dramatically. Double what people are paying. Here, that will affect mostly the illegals, which is why most citizens do not use the bus system. So, I am in favor of this one. It is going to be something in the price of 100 a month. Still a pittance compared to car payments, insurance, gas and car repairs. There were several hundreds of the illegals yelling and protesting. I could not understand much of it, but they were not happy. Can you imagine how much it costs to fill one of those busses?

I'm not even in "the burbs".... think rustic! I can walk to one store and the prices there need to go up since having resources shipped in takes a lot of gas too.

I'm not so sure about there being an increase in demand..... as summer arrives we need less heating oil so that demand should lower. Well, yeah, we still needd heating oil here in Maine upto the middle of June! I have NO idea what I can do about heat for next winter! I never put the heat above 60 this year and I went through about $2500 just for heating oil!

Gas is right around $3.35 here in So. CA for the low octane. It went down a gallon recently.

It's a killer owning an SUV now.

$2500.00? You know, when I see things like this, I don't mind paying a little more at the pump to live an area where it stays warm all year. I am going to shut up about the gas prices.Yeah right, no I won't. But it would be the right thing for me to do.

Regular is at $3.18, plus is at $3.28 or at least it was yesterday. We use plus as our vehicles truely do run better on plus than on regular. We also typically use off name brand gas stations as their prices are regularly 2 to 3 cents cheaper than the big stations. Thankfully my Monte Carlo SS gets about 27 mpg. Unfortunately hubby's two vehicles get less, the Ranger (1987) gets about 18 or so mpg and the Rodeo (SUV 1992) gets closer to 15 mpg. Unfortunately the air conditioner in the Ranger doesn't work. Also there is no public trasportation that we can use either. I drive about 8 miles each way to work. My husband on the other hand has a good half hour to hour drive into Charlotte for work each day. One good thing is that he works 4 days a week 10hr shifts instead of 5 days a week so that helps. Plus working night shift he's driving against afternoon rush hour traffic and at 4am there isn't much traffic at all to condent with. Oh and why the Rodeo gets less mpg I have no idea, and it's a manual where as the Monte Carlo and the Ranger are automatics. Plus we're looking at trading the Rodeo in for a Toyota Tocoma which also gets about 19 mpg (city, I didn't look at freeway mileage).

3.41 for regular just over the lake from you Marie. Apparently Chicago prices are rubbing off on the Michiana (Michigan & Indiana) area.

One store in town if finally down to $2.99 Makes me happy to see the '2' up there in front again. But I would be even more excited to see a '1' there instead.

It's come down a little here as well. There's one station that I pass any day I'm working that is at $2.98 for regular. Still not good. I can still remember days when I paid less than $1.00 per gallon for medium grade.

Down to $2.96 again. Hope it will stay for a while and not jump up again.

I heard on NPR today that there was a cyclone (hurricane for us North Americans) in Iran http://www.dailytimes.com .pk/default.asp?page=2007%5C06%5C08%5Cstory_8-6-2007_pg7_1 Since the cyclone was headed on down the oil shipping lane, oil closed at over $70 (US) per barrel. Yep. I filled up the car today. I just wish the other car wasn't at the shop so I could have filled it up too.

Aiyiyi.

One of news websites keep track of the cheapest gas. I didn't go, but one of the Knoxville gas stations had it for $2.65. But, most of the other cheapies were in the $2.80's.

I was in a little town in GA today around mile marker 25 off of I75, and saw gas for $2.63... I was so annoyed. I just had filled up for $2.75 a gallon and thought I had found the best deal. Go Figure!
