In the Bay Area (California), we're pushing about 3.67.

$3.13 two weeks ago & now $3.25. Going to my son's house to see my grandchildren used to take $30 round trip now it is close to $50. Going for Easter, probably won't go back until gas comes down some, if it does. That $50 can pay a bill or two. Okay, maybe just one.

On another message board someone posted the miles per gallon her hybrid gets, and it's truly not that much better than my non hybrid car. I don't remember which car it was, but the hybrid was getting 33 miles to a gallon, my non hybrid Monte Carlo SS gets 27.5 miles per gallon. That's not a big difference.

yesterday, our nearest large town went to $3.459 for the cheap stuff. The gas station calls it "restoration" which means they get an email from their corporate office saying to take it up to a certain price, then later that day take a survey of the nearest stations to see how far they take it up to. If the other stations don't go up as much, they email corporate and corporate possibly will let them go down some.

Here in Northern WI we are sitting at 3.35 a gallon. But, as I travel to do my territory, I noticed charges of 3.299 and up. Get ready folks, were already hearing 4.00 a gallon is coming soon. Im sure weve all made drastic changes in our drives, unless, youre one of the lucky ones that own big RV's and price doesnt matter. Personally, I feel that the RV's should be limited as to the number of outings since they get such poor mileage. How else are we going to cut back on the use of gas, if our automotive industry doesnt make more fuel efficient vehicles. EVERYONE should have to adjust, not just us poor folk!

The sad truth is, we would all be better off, if the big oil companies wouldn't have for years greased the political wheels with massive campaign contributions. Only in recent years have we finally gotten enough public pressure on the politicians to provide great amounts of government funding to search for, develop, and experiment with alternative fuel and energy methods. We could already have that. But no, we had to make ourselves dependable on foreign oil imports. That also made us vulnerable.

I just saw 3.65 at the station down the street (that's for regular). They are not the cheapest place in town, but when they raise their price I always know that everyone else is about to go up too. The last time I filled my minivan I set a new record of $66. It's going to be worse next time I fill since the prices are up since then.

As of today at the gas station I typically fill up at (one of the two cheapest in town):
regular $3.28
midgrade: $3.38
didn't look at premium.

When I filled up a few days ago it was down about 2 cents from what it is now.

Ya know just posting a price without saying WHERE IT IS is a waste of time.

Here in Dry Gulch Texas this morning regular unleaded ranges from $3.19 to $3.35 per gallon.

Noel, unlike you most of us have their location, or at least state, in the profile to the left of the post. Just in case you missed it.
