    I normally stick to Chevron, since that's where we have a credit card. (Dumb, I know, since we're paying for gas AND finance charges.) The cheapest Chevron in Glendale had regular for $2.71. The expensive one, just off the freeway, had regular priced at $2.85, with premium going for $3.05. Even the "cheap" stations, like Arco, are hovering around the $2.70 mark. That was 3 days ago, though. I should go out and check again today.

    And I just bought a new car with a bigger tank, but at least it gets better mileage.


From what I saw yesterday/today, the cheapest at Arco is about $2.75 off the freeway and $2.73 near school. Shell is actually cheaper than Arco right now by a few cents. I've been told Shell's gas burns faster though. I don't know the validity behind that claim, since i've yet to actually look up any tests that proved it.

Shot up from $2.35 to $2.55 in the Birmingham area this past week. Aren't these oil companies setting record profits?

    Mac's by my house had 100.4 cents last night, and Calgary's Finest Daily Newspaper (the Herald) reports that it's mostly 103.4 city-wide.


Yeah, I saw the paper, and then when I saw 98.9 cents/litre (minus the 3.5 cent discount) on my way to work, I figured I'd better fill while the filling is good.

On the 45 minue bus ride to work....funny enough, it's cheaper to buy gas in downtown Hamilton than it is in the outskirts of town.


Downtown at the local Sunoco: 95.3 a litre.

Stoney Creek, at a Petro Canada: 102.6 a litre

Thank goodness I don't drive...but I think the Greyhound fare I'm picking up to go back to Alberta in October may be more expensive because of the fuel prices.

Tonight it was $2.51 in most places where I stopped in Central Texas...the highest being about 2.56.

10 bucks just barely getting 4 gallons of gas is damned ridiculous.

It was $2.299 here last Wednesday. It was $2.499 when I filled up today. Here being near Harrisburg, PA, which, of course, is redundant since my pin mark is on The W...orld.

We've been sitting around the $A1.15-1.20/L for a while. +0.10 for premium. (ACT)

For the English guy, your price is pretty good. I though you guys were up over a poond per litre for a while

It's been anywhere from $2.659 to probably $2.729 for unleaded in our parts, but I bet in Chicago it's right around $3.009 due to taxes, etc.

Right now, I'm happy if I can find it below $2.50. Highest I've seen for regular, self-serve is $2.699.

Prices are between $2.60 and $2.80 here in Los Angeles.

The prices drop rather dramatically depending on the station. Chevron and Shell range in the $2.70's while 76 and Arco stations drop to the low $2.60's. Mobil...forget about it.

Well it's held steady at $2.699 - I finally had to fill up the tank yesterday and found premium at $2.799 - $37 for the tank. Arrrgh. TANKS A LOT

One "fun" thing is that at my local mini-mart, milk is ALSO $2.69 a gallon - so it's nine-tenths cheaper to get a gallon of milk than a gallon of gas.

I take it nobody's seen any wild swings in the past week (or got tired of answering)?

Our prices (Western North Carolina) shrank two cents from $2.61 to $2.59 in the past week. This is the first reduction in prices in about four months.

It was around $2.60-$2.70 last time I filled up a few days ago. It's cheaper in Jersey and Delaware, though.

Just yesterday, on the way home at 5PM, it was $2.55. Later that night, after my daughter's back to school meeting, it went up to $2.75! But when I filled my car this morning, there was a Meijer's store selling for $2.65, but I only paid $2.62 since they give out $.03/gal discount coupons if you buy groceries, etc at the "big store".

Around this part of central NJ, it looks like it stopped going up daily, at least for the last week. At one end of the block its $2.59, and $2.53 at the other. Near the Lincoln Tunnel in NYC the other day, I noticed it was $2.89, and $3.09 for premium...
