I filled up Saturday and it was $2.96. Decided to top it up today and it had gone up to $3.36. Yikes that's an increase of 40 cents.

So what are you paying?

$3.49 here in most places, a few places are now down to $3.39......

$2.99 still in the town my DH works in, although it peaked at $3.12 in the town I work in last week.

Hi!
$3.11 here in Upstate NY. I am sure it will skyrocket though soon. I am near Saratoga, Lake George area and we are starting our busiest season this week.
WOW! Some of you are paying a ton!

$3.49 right now, and just about every other day, the price keeps going up and up. You know what gets me though....they say more and more folks are taking the bus, but no one ever mentions whether or not the bus fares have gone up...I wonder...

I cant even look anymore. I just know when i bought my car it took almost $20 to fill it up. Now it takes $45. That is insane.

They say it is a supply and demand problem...i just dont get that though. I dont think i am using more than TWICE what i was when i bought my car, so how come my fill up doubled? I think we need to look at why the gas companies are having record profits...like 500% increase in profit...and they say supply and demand?....sounds like the only *demanding and suppling* going on is that gas companies are *demanding* my *supply* of money with record profits. :-(

Um, I think about $3.10 or so, as it changes. When I first got my car in '02 it cost $20 to fill it up, now it is more like $40. Ouch.

Um, here in Edmonton, Alberta (with a refinery right at the edge of town, nonetheless), it's 1.21 a LITER. So approximately 4.84 a gallon. :(

$2.99 so far. It's been a little over and a little under the $3 range for about a month, now. I HATE it!

I saw on CNN that some people in the government are wanting legislation giving them the ability to monitor the gas companies and ensure that we aren't being gouged....I guess they are thinking that's what's going on, now. Anyway, I, for one, hope that legislation gets somewhere!

(Although - as Shelby pointed out - our gas is STILL cheaper than Canada and Europe!)

We're $3.55 or so for REGULAR. I almost choked when I saw the prices this weekend...

We're blessed here on the border between GA & FL. It's still only :dizzy: $2.96 a gallon. We get ours with a Wally World gift card, so we save 3 cents ;)

Actually CLYDEGIRL for low grade it has been between $3.31 and $3.69 a gallon for the last week down here.

lilybelle

It is now $3.43 a gallon here. Does anyone else notice that this happens each yr. when the temperature goes up. It occurs to me that when we finally get lower gas heating bills, the price at the pump goes up.

I drive an Expedition and it costs $80.00 to fill it up. I'm glad I stay at home now. I try to conserve on my driving when gas prices are this high.

05-23-2007, 11:53 PM
I just paid $3.49/gallon to fill up. Actually not any worse than what we are used to. It's been over $3 a gallon for well over a year. But I did make sure I got gas today before the price goes up for the holiday weekend.

DH and I have been thinking of buying bicycles to get to work. We live very close to his job, but it'd be a 5 mile ride each way for me and I'm not in the best shape. I'm looking into getting a bike with electric assist for the days when I'm too tired to peddle.

It's $2.99 here in nowhere, Tennessee. It's been like that for a few weeks now. I was in Nashville today visiting the parents and it's up to about $3.25 there. For some reason it doesn't seem like it's that much of a crunch on my budget... I drive an old Volvo (gets about 25 mpg) and I've just been consolidating trips. The only places I drive on a regular basis are work and the gym, and both of those places are within 5 miles of my house. I live within walking distance to the university, and there's a convenience store right around the corner. So I guess I'm lucky even though this town has nonexistent public transportation.

$3.22 here in Northern New York (near Watertown).

Although...we have a grocery store in our neck of the woods called Price Chopper and they have an Advantage Card that you use to get specific specials on certain items. Well...about a year ago they started to have a save-at-the-pump program where for every $50 you buy on groceries and use your Advantage Card, you save 10 cents on a fill up. Well..I'm a professional grocery shopper and in a month I got that reduction up to $1.10 a gallon, bringing my price to $1.91 or so a few months ago!! I filled up the ole Blazer with $25!!! Of course, I can only do that once a month or two...but it's nice to get that break every now and then...and you can only go to participating Sunoco stations and the only one I know of is right in front of Price Chopper and it's always packed so it takes a while to pay for it, etc...but still very much worth it!!

You poor Canadians...I had no idea it was so bad up there!! If the prices here get that bad, I'll have to quit my job or at least crunch all my hours into one long day.

05-24-2007, 01:47 PM
Lilybelle...I have noticed that it does go up at certain times of the year but it has never been this high before, not here anyway.

We were up to $3.29 over this past weekend but it is down to $3.19 today, lol. Still high and some are saying it will go up to $4, yikes! Glad DH works 5 minutes from his job.

05-24-2007, 01:50 PM
I had to do some math but I believe it to be about $4.05 here today.

Too Much!! 3.43 per gallon for the cheap stuff when I filled up the other day. Unreal!

05-24-2007, 03:43 PM
Another Canadian paying over $5 a US gallon. We have huge discrepancies across the country of course we are the highest of all. Last year we made the decision to purchase a smaller car and car pool. I end up having to wait up to 45 minutes a day --- but its worth it when I pay the fuel bill each month. Our SUV rarely goes anywhere and only costs about $50 to fuel up.

jillybean720
05-24-2007, 04:21 PM
I paid $3.19 a few days ago, but I know it's gone up since then. They said on the news today to hurry up and fill up today because all-time record high prices are expected for the coming season. Hurray :rolleyes:

The one near my house is only $3.11 for some reason, which is odd since I live right off a major highway and am closer to the city than my office is (the $3.19 was out by my office).

Haven't Canadians always paid a bit more than us? Europeans, too. Not to say it's fair, but I think the increases are probably about the same percentage-wise.

What I don't get is why gas prices NEVER returned to "normal" amounts after Katrina. I understand why they spiked post-Katrina, but then it never got below $2 a gallon after that (not around here, anyway), whereas it had NEVER hit $2 before that. I know the war in Iraq is the excuse for everything now, but we should just now be complaining about gas prices going over $2.50 and getting closer to $3, not nearing or exceeding $4 or $5.

YEP 3.29 a gallon and i just had to be the lucky one to purchase a 1999 suburban which has all the upgrades 22 inch chrome rims AND drum roll please .......... a 52 gallon gas tank for those long trips (around 200 to fill up) ohh boy you know im doing back flips when im spending 120 a week on gas and thats only 15 miles one way to work and 15 back 5 days a week
I am buying a bus pass for 50 bucks a month the bus time is 45 mins tops from home to work so im gonna start busing it my DH doesnt like it but oh well at least through summer i can save us some money untill school start's back up for the kids anyways

We haven't seen anything under $3 for over a year or more. While I don't pay really close attention to it, I believe the current prices are $3.59/3.69/3.79 give or take .20.

Sakai
05-25-2007, 05:25 PM
$2.99 in my tiny town in Arizona.
It's gone up and I do think it will go up for the holiday weekend.
I only put $15 worth of gas in my car when I go to the tank. My car is pretty small and does good on gas (for being a 15 year old car)
plus I live about 4 miles from work and everywhere I need to go is 6 miles away or closer...so yeah, $15 will last me the week.
Plus the Doc's gas station offers a 5 cent discount when you pay cash, (so that comes out to something like 27 cents worth of free gas... not much but every bit helps. )

05-25-2007, 06:38 PM
We live in the tri-state area, so gas varies quite a lot around here since we're dealing with 3 different states within 10 minutes of each other. Its ranging between $3.18 to $3.49 right now.

I think I was at 3.79 for premium the other day, 3.51 for regular

Putting $53 in the minivan was sticker shock, but the thing has a huge tank, putting over $50 in dh's car floored me.

Some how the past week I've gotten stuck with all the fills. I had been driving the minivan instead of my car for awhile so filled that up ($50- Friday) then the NEXT day I took my car for the first time in 2 weeks and it was empty so filled that up ($45) then 2 days later I had dh's car for only a short bit, but the light came on so I filled it up ($51 - Mon) and he had driven the minivan out of town last weekend and I took it shopping out of town thursday and had to fill it again ($53 - thursday). So in 7 days I spent $200 on gas. Hopefully we are stocked up for a while now.

I did notice that for the first time in 20 years the difference between regular and premium is more than $0.20

05-26-2007, 10:43 AM
just being doing some calcualtions- where I live in the UK the cheapest gas is 0.93 or $1.85 per litre!!. A couple of years ago it went up to the equivelant over $2 for a while. On top of that the Government want to bring in road pricing. this means being charged a tax per mile we drive, more busy roads will cost more. :(

05-26-2007, 11:15 AM
I think we are at $3.18/gallon in this area now. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Prius. I go about 400-440 miles on 8 gallons of gas when the weather is warm :) Plus the car just rules, all gas-mileage things aside.

We went out looking at some condos and townhomes this weekend (thinking of buying so we can stop renting), and the gas down where the townhomes are was only $2.99. We actually wrote "cheap gas" in our notes for those homes :p

I don't fill up unless I'm going to be traveling. I won't be a rolling storage container for the oil industry. It's just a political thing for me.

However, I did put $20 in this morning. It was $3.19. Two days ago it was $3.26. Before I left Pensacola, it had dropped there to $2.96.

$7/gallon.

the exchange rate from the uk to the USA is about $1.98 to 1.

Hmm... how long have you lived there? And where are you originally from?

I was raised in Manassas, lived in Centreville for awhile, then lived in NW DC, which was FANTASTIC. But you're right - the cost of living is terribly expensive - what do you expect? NOVA is one of the top richest areas in the nation.

Here's what I LOVE and MISS about it:
DC had so much to do. I was involved with everything - music, art, theatre, activism... I had so many awesome friends, met so many amazing people, and people up there have passion... people down here seem to have apathy, but I've realized it's also just a different attitude on life. I was very into the riot grrrl scene, which is still booming in DC, but nonexistant here. Raves are illegal down here, too. I miss the punk scene. I miss the coffee shops. I miss the open mic nights. I miss real artists - adults who made a living off their art and were passionate about it - those don't happen here in G'ville, FL - this is a college town full of rich kids who have never lived, shallow people, fraternities, sororities, and everything I dislike. I miss interesting people with substance...

I could go on and on about how much I love DC, but I'm going to zip it now. There are parts of Florida I love, too - Cocoa Beach, Fort Lauderdale, The Keys... I'm just not fond of Gainesville.

But alas, I don't see myself moving back there anytime soon, because it IS way too EXPENSIVE! I can barely afford FLORIDA, let alone DC. Haha.

Unfortunately, the fuel companies know we feel this way, which is why gas will likely NEVER go back to the normal prices of less than $2/gallon. They keep jacking the prices up and up and up and see that the consumption levels do NOT go down, so now we've shown them we're willing to pay almost anything. It really sucks how they completely take advantage of our current lifestyles to make more of a profit on our relying on our cars.

I am currently paying $3.01, but that is because we are in Agriculture so we "Contract" so many gallons per year (like 10,000 gallons between gas and diesel..cringe) but if I were to be paying at the pump it is like $3.38 here now.

Gas has gone back up to $2.93-2.95 here in GA. What I don't understand is that it's the same price in Jacksonville..where it had always been 15-20 cents higher there :?: I wonder if it's because we're right off I-95..there's a lot of truck & tourist traffic that passes through here.

Barely. This morning, gas was $1.37 per litre. A gallon is equal to 3.79 litres, so that makes it ..... $5.19 per gallon. I wish we were on Richmond's price.
If you also consider the fact that Canucks that make $50,000 per year bring home approximately $5,000 LESS in after-tax money than their US counterparts, that only adds insult to injury.

Tomato - I am so sorry! Do you have a long commute to work? What kind of mileage does your vehicle get??

Fortunately not, it's about 13 km one way (i.e. 8 miles and a bit) and I drive a Toyota Matrix so it is not too bad but still, it cuts into your budget. $25 at a pump gets you nowhere and when I think that for that kind of money, I used to be able to get a full tank (of course years ago).
But of course, than there is the price of gas reflected in everything else - groceries, for example. I live on my own so its only one salary to finance the mortgage, car loan, property taxes and everything else. Property taxes also keep going up like crazy, I now pay $50 more a month than I was 2 years ago. It just all adds up.

3 Keiko, yeah, I know that it is even worse than here in B.C. I am careful and always buy gas when the price goes down a bit but that's really not helping much - I save maybe a $1.50 that way. But out of a principle, I watch the prices like a hawk and once it is down for a day, I fill up.

$10 a gallon for regular unleaded here in London.

It costs just over $100 to fill up a little economical car. It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't living off the US dollar... but I am.

Last year when I was still in LA I would always go for "drives"... no destination, but just drive around... it's just what I did when I wanted to clear my head or take a break for whatever I was doing. That is unheard of here. People don't drive here without a particular destination and only do it when its necessary.

Diesel is $2.02 a litre here--that's about $8.08 per gallon. I don't know what unleaded is--I haven't had to fuel up for ages. I estimate that it's around $1.60-65 a litre--so about $6.40-6.60 gallon here. :(

Still, not as bad as the UK.
