Question What Are You Paying For Gas?

$3.29 for Regular/Chevron

This hurts. A year ago I was paying $1.89.

Western WI is $3.20. Eastern MN is about the same.
Was paying $2.78 at Sam's club in MN but this week it shot up 10 cents and today another 5 to $2.92
For the past 8 years, I had an '08 HHR that got 27 mpg as a DD, but replaced it with a 2016 CR-V in May that gets 32. Still, my $6.00 SS cost of living raise this year certainly isn't keeping up with the crazy prices for gas, grocery's and building products.

Iím selling regular for $3.449 a gallon in Elk Grove Village Illinois. I bought a load at the old price last week. Competition is $3.599. Crazy couple of weeks in the gas business. Bill

Lee... You're killing me... LOL

Ontario... $1.34/L X 3.78 (L in US gallon) = $5.06 for Regular

2015 Ram Hemi...127L (33 USG) $160+ to fill with 18-20 MPG (US)

Around here where I live in Northern California I don't think you can fine any gas under$4.50 a gallon. One Chevron station has premium at $4.99.

Believe it or not, I do not know. I put AVgas in the Z/28 over the weekend. But the pump is not marked for price, and I chose to dispense gas by the gallon rather than the $ amount. So, I pumped 7 gallons (the gauge was on 1/2 full... OK 1/2 empty for you negative guys) so figured I would be safe with a 16 gallon tank. The pump has no auto shut off, so if you pump too much, it just spills on the ground. Guess I could look at the credit card statement to see how much I spent.

It is normally about double the price of pump gas 87. Definitely worth it though. I have about 11.5:1 compression, and can run the timing a bit more advanced on the AVgas. Really wakes it up.

I haven't put gas in Sherri's plug-in hybrid in forever. Last time may have been in mid June when we went to a couple Red Sox games in KC. (BTW, GO SOX!!!!... they are batting .328 AS A TEAM in the post season... hope I didn't just jinx them) If I leave it plugged in over night, we drive to work without using any gas. Then plug it in and we get to the office, and use no gas coming home. We will probably be driving it to MCACN, so at least I will get that old gas out of the tank and have all fresh gas in there. I always use ethanol free, because the E10 and E15 stuff has a shelf life about equal to a piece of meat sitting on the counter.

Will have to look at the signs on the way to work tomorrow.

Regular is $1.33 Cdn. per Litre here today an hour from Toronto = over $4.00 US per US Gallon.
Cost a year ago was 20 percent or so less also 50 years ago, Regular was about 10 Cents per Litre @ 45 Cents a Cdn. Gallon which is roughly 4-1/2 Litres/US Quarts.
Future Gas prices will no doubt worsen as our Governments push to Electrify us w/ added Fuel taxes also Fossil Fuel burning vehicle Licensing and Insurance costs etc...plus lots of BS justification to wash it down with.
