It's $3.95 here in Appalachia.

Matter of fact we can make moonshine and have plenty of gas left over for a couple trips into town.

Don't go green, go clean water moonshine.

      And about 5 weeks later, we're up to $3.49


    And about 5 more weeks later, we're up to $3.999

    About 80 cents in 3 months? Yikes.


Almost 2 weeks later and I just got $4.09 a gallon.

$0.98 increase in about 13 weeks, and this is the discount station. I've seen it approach $4.25 as you get closer to the DC line.

Thhhbbbt.

Up to 1.37/litre (approx $9.40 per US Gallon) up the road from me.

With impeccable timing tanker drivers are striking over pay (news.bbc.co.uk) which is causing a run on petrol and already leading to shortages in some more hickish parts of the country.

The poor loves only get about 30,000 ($60,000) a year for driving around. The humanity!

The radio report I heard last week said they're still getting paid exactly what they were getting in 1992. Sounds kinda questionable, now that I [type] it out loud. Is that true?

If you believe the union, but both they and the employers are as guilty as each other for spinning BS on either side right now.

And heck if they *were* getting 32k a year in '92 that's fricking ridiculous money.

Their main argument right now seems to be Shell's profits went up, so their pay should go up by a similar amount. Which would be a dubious argument even if they were employed by Shell.

To be honest it's more the timing that annoys me than anything else. They're piggy backing onto the truckers strike because they know those guys have got decent public support. Support on a completely different issue (excessive fuel prices/tax), but the public are morons, and a high percentage actually think they're all protesting about the same thing.

But by striking now they harm supply, and drive up fuel prices even further. All of which is veering toward the political and away from the "how much is gas?" I guess

Up to a quite mind boggling 1.99 a litre (9 a gallon) now!

It has been two weeks since I had to get gas and the price went down a tad to $4.07 a gallon.

We've held at $3.99 for almost two weeks. But across the border in South Carolina, gas is $3.80.

And two days later, the prices hopped up to $4.05, but the S.C. prices remain at $3.80.

A place in my town, just southeast of Raleigh, has gas for $3.69. That is pretty amazing, given that it was over $4 2 weeks ago.

Also, it still unsettles me that I actually use the word "amazing" to describe $3.69/gallon for gas, when less than a year ago it was more than a dollar less.

I just thought of this thread this morning. After being around $4.30 across the board here we've dropped a bit. Most every station I passed this morning was in the $4.19-ish area, and the one on the corner of Pioneer and River Rd. was down to $3.99 (!).

$4.19 at the station right outside my hotel room in downtown Portland, OR.

And I am most certain I am going to be seriously injured by a bicyclist before I leave...
