Unhappy What is your gas cost today?

Here in Victoria gas just hit an all time high cost of $1.38.9 cents per litre ... which converts to $5.26 per US gallon!
What are your gas prices like right now? Gonna hurt us this summer if the gas prices go as high as they say they might! They are predicting $1.60 per litre in Canada ... which would be just over $6.00 US per gallon ...

I may have passed my "best before" date, but I haven't reached my "expiry" date!

Here in North Carolina, today's price is $3.79/gal.
I expect it will be $5.00+ by Memorial Day, the end of May for the inconvenience of vacation driving throughout the summer. Gotta love those oil companies.
I retail aviation fuel (100LL & Jet-A) at our airport, and it's been a constant price increase each time I order an 8,000 gallon fuel load.

We bought gas yesterday at Costco in Coeur d'Alene for Deb's Escape and paid $3.19/gal. Looks like we're 2 years behind in music and fashion and 2 weeks behind in gas prices.

Regular "unleaded" gas today in the Denver area is $3.05 to $3.12 per gal. depending on your local travel area. I think our planned trip to the Nothern California get together in June this year is going to be using our "extra miles" air miles and we will not be driving (bummer!) our Special ie. 12-14 miles per gallon whether trailering or just driving our HCS is not going to work. P.S. Also, I remember our trip for the mixer with the SAAC 35? event that fuel jumped a buck a gallon as soon as we hit the California border, so-------we'll see. hicountry BOB here

Fuel in the Sacramento area is about $4.10-$4.25 per gallon of Reg. This price goes up daily, sometimes hourly.

This morning I saw a commercial on TV by one of the oil companies touting 'support for local communities'. I'd like to see some 'support' at the gas pumps rather than just some lip service PR commercial.

Here in the So Cal area I feel lucky if I can snag some 87 for about $4.30 for a name brand fuel (Chevron, Mobil ...). Costco and Sam's Club are around $4.19 ...
This is getting out of hand, I think our leaders in government should start earning their paychecks and do something, especially when gas consumption is lower this year - Sounds like "We The People" are doing our part ... drill, baby, drill! ...

Monday morning the 7 stations I go past on my way to the train station were all $3.69 per gallon. On the way home all 7 had jumped to $3.89 per gallon. Every week it jumps up 10 to 20 cents per gallon then falls back 4 to 5 cents per gallon for a net increase.

It was ~$4.50 in the bay area for premium...
...you can thank our (unelected) head of the Federal Reserve bank (Bernanke) for this, given his (in effect) running the $ printing presses and his mantra that "inflation is good".

Just my $0.02... errrr... $0.03

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Filled up yesterday in Eureka Montana for $3.17/gallon, noticed Southern Alberta at $111.9/litre, but still running on that cheap US fuel. Definitely cheaper than my neighbour to the west, but we all know in Alberta that BC means bring cash.
