$3.45 for regular unleaded. A new WAWA just opened in town and there's a price war going on. Works for me. $3.59 everywhere else.

In Europe we use litres. It's about 1.70 per litre. Which is about $2 per litre. There are 7 pints in 4 litres and a gallon is 8 pints. So that makes it roughly $9 per gallon. Are you girls envious? I think not!

I fill up every 10 days or so. That only does my work gas. If I use the car weekends I need to fill more frequently. It costs about 80 ($100) per fill! Ie 240 ($300) per month. Minimum.

I'm not glad that you guys pay more outside of the US, but I'm glad you posted about it. And this has nothing to do with any political affiliation but too many people always blame the President of the US for high gas prices, whether it be this President or any past President. They obviously aren't in charge of the world market of oil and gas prices. Perhaps there are decisions or policies that may come into play, but it's just one of those things I hear ill-informed people b*tch about and it drives me insane! Thanks for letting me vent. :-D

Oooh, I totally hear you on the "stupid things to blame on the President/Prime Minister" thing.

Surely there are enough legitimate gripes without adding things they have no control over!

I've been buying ethanol-free gas for the last month or so...$3.70/gallon but a)I'm definitely getting better gas mileage and b)the prices aren't fluctuating like the mainstream stations...

On our way to the game Friday night, my uncle and cousin kept looking at gas prices in Bristol (yep, the NASCAR Bristol :))...the farther we went into VA, the prices kept going up by 3-4 cents every station we saw!! Weird...

Paid $3.39 here in NE MO yesterday.

Why is it falling now? Obama is running for President! He's gotta look good when the race is so close!

Haha, Brooke! While I agree, it always falls this time of year and will go back up a few days before Thanksgiving. It went down to $3.37 here in town this weekend.

Yep - and the price around here always goes up in the spring/summer. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that travel is at it's peak then. :shock:

Brooke
10-22-2012, 03:01 PM
And of course it will go right back up for holiday travel! :rolleyes:

I live in a rural area, equally distant from several towns. If I go 5 to 6 miles east, the Sheetz has regular unleaded for $3.43 (it was $3.57 yesterday). Six miles in the opposite direction, it's $3.25 ($3.39) yesterday.

$3.18 here.

I'd love to see it get below $3.00, but I figure it will go back up now that the election is over. :rolleyes:

Yes, plus more and more refineries will switch over to heating oil and propane as winter sets in. So far, this doesn't look like a friendly winter when it comes to heat, and it's technically still fall!

I filled up for $3.12 p/gal today - looks like gas may be cheaper in my area than a lot of other Borderers are paying so I guess I should be very grateful.

Gas prices in Memphis went down as much as 45 cents last week. Hope it lasts!

Filled up for $3.05 this afternoon. I can't remember how long it's been since it's been that low. But, the good news is that we can kind of track the prices now that we have this thread. :thumbsup:

On Thursday, it was $2.95 here in Warrenton, but one of the stations that's been involved in the price war had moved theirs up to $3.05. I didn't notice what it was yesterday, I'm getting ready to go pick up a few things, it'll be interesting to see if they've all gone up.

How about the price of home heating oil? I think my last bill was about $4.30/gallon with a 5 percent bio-fuel discount. I'm looking into alternatives but the change is an added (exhorbitant) cost. In the words of my father: "Put On A Sweater!!!"

The house I grew up in had a floor furnace...we used to stand over it to get warm...loved it..so when we were cold we used to get told " go stand over the furnace"...

Wow, Zelda. And I thought "put on a sweater" was bad!!! I was afraid of the furnace -- kind of like Kevin in "Home Alone".
