    I'm bored. $1.96 at the Citco up the street from me, which is good, because my mustang gets 17 miles to the gallon :lol: What about you?

    $2.05

    It was down to less than $1.50 during the winter. Things aren't any better for the oil industry here so I assume the price inflation here is mostly just the usual summer price hike. They raised it by 10 cents at a time over the last 3-4 months. As long as it stays below $3 I'm happy. :lol:

    Hot damn, a buck fifty? that's awesome. Lowest I've ever seen it here in Chatt is a buck eighty something. I'm gonna be moving back to florida (tampa, specifically) in about a month, not looking forward to the higher gas prices there haha

    Gas prices are cheaper here I assume because of the port and I also live pretty close to the refineries.

    Gas goes by the liter here and whenever I see Americans complaining about their prices, I got "gee, we pay almost as much for a liter as you do for a gallon here" :lol:

    It hasn't been $4 here since the price of a barrel of oil was around $100 during the height of the war in the middle east (and anytime a hurricane hits). Gas prices were like $4.25 which is nuts where I live. I can only imagine how expensive it was around that time in Cali.

    $3.65US if I did my litre to Gallon and Canadian $ to USA $ conversions correctly ( its 1.25CA a litre right now..its fluctuated between above $1.45 and below $1 in the past year or so)

    ....I believe Vancouver is the most expensive city for gas in North America :noplease:

    I personally enjoy it when gas prices are higher as it tends to make the city a bit better. Dealerships/ car manufacturers sell better mileage vehicles, public transportation gets improved, traffic drops, car pools increase, etc. I mean paying for it at the pump sucks, but in Texas it seems like only financial incentives gets people to actually do anything worthwhile.

    $2.63 premium right now, MD is a slight bit on the expensive side but not awful. My WRX is doing 21 mpg mixed, and it loves it some 93 octane. Still, I spent a long time paying much more than that for regular so it's not such a big deal.

    I think I paid about $2.90-something for 92 earlier today. Regular grade is closer to $2.40, but my rotary is unhappy unless I shell out for the good stuff.

    Gas is $2.39 at the Speedway right next to me, but at least here you could check five different gas stations within one square mile of each other and they'll all have drastically different prices.
