$3.25 - $3.50 for unleaded regular here in Coastal Washington state. ((At the moment - prices keep jumping around (usually up) constantly.))
$3.29 still and holding.
$2.89 in Granger and Bartlett, TX - when I went thru there on Saturday.
I payed £1.05p a litre today and that was the cheapest I could find, thats $2.15 a litre, so for a gallon that would cost me like what, £4.20p [$8.60].
$2.89 this morning.

Suckmykiss, I have spent a lot of time in the U.K. Your high fuel costs are why your towns are laid out like they are, which means less or no requirement to drive. Honestly, I wish that our communities were situated more like yours, what we call "Traditional Neighborhood Development" here in Virginia. It's where your house, your work, and your commercial district are all located together, and the area in between these clusters are open and green. Just like the European township model. In the U.S., Republicans generally support this and Democrats oppose it. The Dems say that because it allows multiple houses to be built on small lots, it is going to destroy the environment, and that allowing commercial and residential to mix is also bad for the environment. They prefer to limit houses to larger lots and to keep commercial zones separate, which in reality creates what we call sprawl here. Which is why Americans have to drive miles just to get to the store. When the $5 gas arrives, it's going to put a lot of people out of work and out of the ability to travel. And our public transport is non-existent. It's going to suck.

Sorry if this is UN-P.C., but that's usually the best stuff:
"So, what, no fuckin' ziti now?"
I drive a Jeep Liberty. Cost me $56 to fill the tank tonight. Sorry, I don't have a clue how many gallons it holds, so I don't know what that equates to per gallon.
$3.65 here today in San Diego
"I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful."
filled up yesterday at $2.86, other places is $2.95. One place is $2.83, but hubby doesn't like their gas
That was great one of the funniest things I saw in months.
REGULAR GAS is going for $ 2.94 to $ 3.09 a gallon.
today in canada its 1.05
Price of gas today when I left Pheonix, AZ. in the AM
Price of gas today when i arrived in Los Angeles, CA. in the PM
What's with that?
...which means not so good news for us poor people
And not good news for those who drive big gas guzzlers either.
Luckily I got a little gas-sipping Toyota...
Yikes!! Maybe now some of the gas hogs that live in my city will get rid of their Hummers. I could never understand why you would want one in the city. Sorry if any of you own one, but it makes me crazy!!
A few years back, I remember being shocked that gas was $2.00 a gallon. Back then I had a truck. Traded that in for a smaller car..sold it to my son and bought me a 68 mustang....it costs nearly $50.00 to fill it up now.
Its all relitaive anyways. I see all the time on CNN how the mational average gas prices at like 2.90 a gallon and wonder how the sam hell they get these averages. While most of the nation pays say 3.12 a gallon we here in California are already up to 3.79 a gallon. For thoes of us who only have V-8's its making it tempting to buy a plastic car. I have a 77 Chevrolet Cheyenne Stepside truck with a V8 as well as a 1967 Mercury
I could never understand why people bought those Hummers - I call them "gas stations on wheels".
With the high price of gas, homes being foreclosed, and everything else going on - I see a recession on the horizon...sad to say.
I'm with you, Michelle8461. I see them down here in south Louisiana and just don't get it. And the big 4-wheel drives. Come on, our highest peak is Monkey Hill at the Audobon Zoo!
Anyway, I see you're in Elk Grove. My aunt used to live there. I like it there. Small world!

I work in retail... our numbers this year compared to just even last year are wayyyyyyy down.
I drive a friggen little Dodge Neon. Filled it up last week. Cost me just about 30 bucks.
Thank you Mr. President Bush!
Recession is unavoidable. It's a normal part of the economic cycle.
This hurts, and I am screwed because between work and school drop/pick for daughter I drive alot.
Oh, yeah, I could have her take the bus were it not for the fact our route has a head-spinning demon-ass green-pea-puking new driver this year.
The only difference between a death hag and the rest of the world is that we don't DENY we're fascinated by death.... (Tebssis)
Supply and demand folks. As long as there is such a high demand (especially with China) we will be at the mercy of fossil fuels.
I keep hearing alot about alternatives but other than Ethanol I don't see anything on the horizon.
I haven't found Ethanol that burns worth a shit. My Prius gets great mileage, but my F-150--not so much. The truck can burn Ethanol, but when I use it my mileage gets even worse (if you can imagine). So now the truck is parked and I haven't even started it for over 2 weeks. Its a shame, I love that thing in the winter.
I agree with everyone in this thread. However, in my opinion, I don't ever really see people change their driving patterns (i.e. decrease the amount of vehicle usage) due to the increase in gas prices. I don't think most of us truly want to or will due to where we live/work/shop. I know that for the past couple of years, I have made sure that when I am out on errands, I do all I can in one shot so that I can cut down on a lot of unnecessary driving. Even though I now own a truck, I can't tell a bit of difference between filling it up and the car I traded it in for. (Average gas per week$30-60 bucks). I really try not to let my gas tank go past 1/2 a gallon before I fill up again. Sometimes it's not always possible, but it helps to not start from absolutely E.
I live in North Carolina, and the news here today is reporting that my state has gone up on the gas tax again. Hard to believe since the town I live in is home to one of the biggest tank farms on the East Coast.
I'm thankful that my Jeep gets decent mileage for an SUV. I have a Patriot and I get about 25 MPG, which is great compared to my husband's 16 MPG GMC.
This is absilutely ridiculous. People should not have to choose between buying gas to get to work/heating their homes and eating, and that's what it's definitely come to!!
Just to put gas prices into perspective...
Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 .... $10.17 per gallonOcean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon

On the internet you can be anything you want.
It is strange that so many people choose to be stupid.
It is 1.30/litre here, that would be about $5.90 / gallon I think....
Oh yeah in Aust $
Here in Germany, taking into account the exchange rate, about $6.20 American.
I fucking hate Chavez! it was 2.97 yesterday morning, and by the afternoon it was 3.14
Paid $2.89 yesterday morning, and $3.04 this morning. And no, it wasn't for the same car.
