Post Gas Price / Location poll

Just paid 1.83/gallon for gas yesterday in a suburb of Chicago. $26 tank fill-up.

EDIT: Forgot to mention grade... I'm buying 87 octane.

In Austin Texas the price is in the 1.60's it ranges from 1.60 to around 1.7 still not cheap by any means.
Makes me glad I still have a 1.8 in my car the turbo 2.0 would be hurtin my pockets.

Hey guys, what grade are you buyin? I live in Santa Rosa and you lookin at anywhere from $1.73 to 2.05 for premium.

Unfortunately, for the $1.73, you have to wait in line at Costco.

Be ready for more of the same. Oil is back up to ~US$30/barrel. OPEC isn't "cooperating" with the US government. So those analysts that were predicting gasoline prices to be around $1.30 this summer are most likely going to be wrong.

I just paid $1.46 for 87 octane in Cypress, CA. But it's better than it used to be. I think it will go back down after summer.

Man, you guys make me feel so lucky.

$1.55 for premium (93) octane gas in NC. At least at the places I go to.

Man....I feel for you Cali drivers. $1.80 would make me stay home more often...that or let friends drive.

Oil companies, what else is new.
Crude oil goes up, prices went up in a second.
Crude oil goes down, prices don't go down for weeks...

Gotta wonder how the V8 guys doing now.

The San Francisco bay area has the highest gas prices in the country. Seems odd since Tosco and every other oil company has a refinery here. I f*$%in hate oil companies. They are just a necessary evil.

Well you probably don't want to know my problems...but my fuel costs have gone down in $ terms, as the is a bit weaker this month, so I'm only paying $4.64 for a "shrunken" US gallon now. Oh Joy.

HomerJay ~~ You can blame the oil refiners all you want about the artificially high gasoline prices in CA, but the real problem lies in the "CA" part. California is a lawyer-driven, tree-huggin', crazy-ass state. You've got more green laws than practically all the other states combined! It costs the refiners a lot more money to do business in CA, so who do you think is going to pay for it? Sorry, just the truth.

BTW, I'm not defending the oil companies! Somebody already pointed this out above, but it is crappy when the oil prices dropped that we didn't see a drop at the pumps. Yet, as soon as oil goes up, WHAM, price increases at the pump. Although, some of that is also the dealers and station owners who know when they can gouge.

As Paul pointed out, just be glad you're bitching about <$2/gallon in North America and not <$5/gallon in most of Europe...

I filled up our Caprice across the street on Tuesday afternoon for $1.35. I filled up my RS on Wednesday (yes, the next day) morning, for $1.59 at the same station for the same grade.

One of the perks of being a world leading nation, Sub-$5/ gal. gas. But, we also have longer commuting distance to our jobs.
