I heard the midwest got hit with the worst gas prices because of the EPA smog standards that are going to be imposed in cities like Cincinatti... The gas companies react by rasing the price, of course... Columbus didn't have a smog problem, but we got the 2.xx gas prices too...

Nick's right, prices in the Chicago suburbs are around 2.09-2.20, while downtown (Lincoln Park area) I've seen 2.39 in a few places. I now fill up near work and not at home.

Gas prices are up all over, so I'm not sure how much is this new formula gas and how much is vendors realizing they have a good excuse to raise prices. Combined with the local fuel shortage that will take "a few months" to correct itself, and I think some folks are going for the extra buck while they can.

Not that I blame them; I can still afford to fill my tank and if it helps reduce smog and gets more SUVs (or people in general) off the road, I can't complain too much. Some folks pay a lot more than we do.

Wow, I guess I'm glad I'm moving to Buffalo, NY. The cheapest gas I saw there was $1.56 for 87 (Only $1.53 if you buy a car wash too).

Good old Delta Sonic Sammy, you'll love that place. You can get a car wash where you can go back for upto 5 days and get it rewashed for free! And they also sell race fuel (103 or 105 can't remember which) at the pumps! But, I'm sure it's pushing $3-$5 a gallon.

90 cents per litre...premium. I don't know how many litre's there is in a gallon. But I know its still cheaper for me, even with exchange, to make the run to Buffalo and fill up.

Thumbs down

.719/liter 87 Octane

Wondering what the prices are down in Pt Roberts / Blaine. I might just consider going down for fuel-ups.

Hello,

3.89 liters per gallon, so 0.90 per liter is $3.50 per gallon. And the cheaper $0.719 per liter is $2.80 a gallon. But I assume those are Canadian dollars - the current exchange rate is 0.678193 USD per CAD (http://www.xe.net/ucc/). So those prices are US $2.37 per gallon down to $1.899 per gallon. Sounds about close to US prices, maybe a tad high on the high-octane gas.

To the person who posted mileage on any brand of gas - in that respect, gas is gas. You won't see much of a mileage difference between brands. What you might see is a quality difference. I've had many cars that exhibited very slight pinging under load when fed crap gas like "B"lack "P"oison, Aarco, Rotten Robbie, etc. That's the only down side to using el-cheapo gas.

Of course, for rental cars, I find those "El 99 Cent Grocery Store plus Gas Station" places and fill up at a good $0.50 cents per gallon cheaper But with my baby, name brand all the way.

I agree with our UK bretheren, though. I dislike the price increases because when the rest of the country drops back down, the Bay Area stays high. We never get that relief that the rest of y'all get. But aside from that, I don't complain. When I last drove through Europe, I thought it was hilarious to see the HUGE line of French folks in Andorra, where gas was an incredibly cheap $3 per gallon (andora is a county in the pyranees mountains and has no taxes - so it's basically one giant duty-free shopping mecca). People drove the 100 miles round trip to fill up containers worth of gas and apparantly that's how it goes, year round. People drive in with pickup trucks to get tons of gas for farm equipment, too.

Joel - willing to pay a mere $2 per gallon of gas.

Here in Raleigh, it's kind of bad. $1.65 or so for premium, going down in 10 cent increments.

In Wilmington, on the coast, I found premium for $1.54, and I wasn't even looking!

I feel for those of you with high gas prices though...it's rough as it is, I can't imagine it getting much worse.

Just wait for the new oil sources to start kicking in(I think in the Black or Caspian Sea). Than the price will really drop becuase OPEC will have a little competition.

I think the government would rather leave the prices high and their reserves intact. Seems like the strategy these days is to get rest of the world to completely extinguish their reserves before we even touch ours.
