The normal price around here is 2.05 - 2.09

But, Price Cutter offers discounts on certain groceries. We got gas the other day for 1.90

Lately I've paid between $2.47 and $2.67. At least I get okay mileage...but I miss filling up on $10.

Wow, I thought NJ had one of the lower prices but some of you gals have us beat. Yes, we have someone to pump our gas here but honestly I don't believe having self serve would be any cheaper and eventually think it would make our prices even higher. I don't see any reason to have all the people who pump gas put out of a job. They don't make the big bucks anyway they are paid minimum wage or close to it. I like the convenience of not having to get out of the car in bad weather...On the other hand sometimes the service can be really slow when I have GOT to be somewhere. That's when I want to get out of the car and just do it myself. Remember a couple of years ago when gas was really cheap. It cost 8 dollars to fill my Honda. Now I can't believe I spend 20 on my Saturn sometimes and still don't hear the "click" indicating a full tank.

We are paying between $2.20 - $2.45 here. Luckily I work near one of the cheapest stations in the area and live near another.

I'm currently in Central jersey and filled up yesterday for $2.07. But that was at a tiny gas station tucked away somewhere. The average cost at the major stations around here is about $2.15.

Gas here is at about $2.40. But what we are truly mad about is that our state governor, during this time when the high price of gas has become such as issue, forced through a new gas TAX of 9.5cents/gallon. The first 3cents just went into effect. I heard that this will give us the dubious honor of having the highest gas tax in the nation (certainly among the highest anyway!). And where is ALMOST ALL of this money going? Certainly not to those of us on the east side of the mountains. We get to fund the new roads and train systems for Seattle every time we fill our tanks. Whoopee! Lots of bitter people here in eastern Washington, some of whom are working to get it repealed. Wish us luck.

I was visiting my MIL in Panama City, FL and we filled up for $2.13 a gallon on a Wednesday.

Then, on Friday - the day before madatory evacuations began for Dennis, the price was $2.49 a gallon. A few stations had the lower prices, but they were all out of gas, so it didn't make a difference.

2.73 here in Sacramento. That is why I am clustering my shops together. Just filled up the little Focus and it was 23 dollars.

The cheapest place I can find here in PA (Sunoco) is $2.28. The Mobil directly across the street from it is $2.36. The Wawa I use, down the street from these two, is $2.29.

A little more east on the Main Line (west of Philly), $2.37 is the cheapest, and the average seems to be $2.43.

I didn't get gas today, but when I stopped at the Wawa for the Sunday paper, I bought a Tootsie Roll. 15 cents for just one, and it was a penny when I was a kid. And Hershey's chocolate bars were 10 cents back then, and now they're 60 cents on average.

Now think about this. A candy bar is now SIX times what it was in the '70s. Penny candy is FIFTEEN times as expensive. Gas is LESS THAN three times what it was then. I don't hear anyone complaining about the price of chocolate, though.

It's $2.23 now.

When I was first elected, I was pretty happy that I could make money off my mileage because of 40+ miles per gallon. I'm going to be cutting down on visiting my wards if this continues.

The strangest thing happened today. I got up early to go get a paper and gas was 2.15-about normal. I went by the same gas station about 4 hours later and it had been jacked up to 2.37. Now, where i live, it is always about 10 cents cheaper then the neighboring county. I went into that county and the gas there was between 2.23 and 2.32. I since some price gouging due to hurricaine. Though why they would do that is a question because I am in central FL and the hurricaine won't hardly affect us.

$2.49 this morning.

They are pushing that 2.50 mark, but no one is willing to break if just yet.

What hurts the most is that I am a school teacher in a different county. I have a 35 mile commute each way. I decided it was not worth teaching summer school because of the gas prices. I won't have a choice come August. I fill up my tank at least 3 times a week.

I have a credit card that is exclusively for gas and only my car. I use about $180 in gas per month for my car alone. I am sure next month it will be near or break $200.

Normal price is $2.24. At the local grocery store, if you buy over $100 worth of grocery (which I do normally), you get $.10 off.

So I'm paying $2.04.

Oh yeh.

A local radio station, just happened to be in the area, that I was shopping. They had a promo, first 100 cars, get $10 worth.

I got 10 whole dollars, of free gas (with a 15 minute wait).

Whooppiieeee....
