How much is one gallon of gasoline in your area? In central North Carolina it is 2.65 a gallon for regular.

The last time I bought gas, about a week ago, the price was €1.599 a litre. The Euro is worth about $1.175 so
1.599 * 3.8 * 1.175 = $7.14

I just checked my spread sheet and that price is just a penny off the average since Nov 2012 but I've seen it as high as $8.50

Yea, but I've run the fancy stuff through both the VW and the X10 for 1000km and kept close watch on the outcome. Not one iota of difference so I stay with the 89 octane cheap stuff.

Oh.. there's no corn juice additives here either.

2.83 in St. Louis.  We use to have a gas thread somewhere guess it died when gas was coming down. 

Interesting to see what others pay but not happy it's going back up.

There's worse out there!
The kicker is.. the best part of that price is tax then there's 24% tax on the tax.

In NS this week, 87 Octane is $1.33/liter ... or $5.04 Canadian  for a US gal, so I guess that makes it $3.95 US for a US gal. Next week likely higher as prices rise and the dollar falls.

I filled up at Costco on Wednesday, for $2.589 with 91. You should have seen all the soccer moms in SUVs, and Fifty-something men in their Mustangs and Camaros when I rolled up, put my 2.6 gallons in, and rolled away. They were all standing there phone in hand and open mouthed.

The final price filling my Dodge Ram and gas cans with 30 gallons yesterday was $1.42 per gallon in Frederick, Maryland. With a nearby supermarket also operating a couple gas stations, the $1.50 per gallon shopping card discount against a pump price of $2.92 per gallon really helps. Won't last long, though. The Dodge is soon leaving for North Carolina with my Yamaha Morphous and other stuff on board.

Thanks to every one of you who took the time to share. Looks like we will be paying more for gas this holiday, but at least we can still get gas.

So true!!  We rarely drink soda anymore.  I felt like a coke yesterday.  I got s bottle near  the grocery store checkout at $1.99 for a 20oz bottle.  I could have got a two liter for 99 cents!  I wasn't paying attention,
