Default Gas Prices

Okay, let's start the how-much-is-gas-in-your-area question, yet again. Everybody join in; gas is expensive world-wide.

To an answer my own question, in SoCal, gas costs $3.24/gal for my car and $3.07/gal for Keith's car.

And in your area?

In St Pete,Fl $2.89 for the cheap regular. I have to put in the better for my car sp O spend $3.05 for mid grad. OUCH
But look at it this way. In Europe they have the metric so it looks like less but when you convert to gallons the price is much more. In Mexico we figured out it was $7.00 p/g and that was last year.

We are at about $2.90. Not good, especially since I had to fill up 3 times last week. It is almost painful.

Default Gas Prices

I filled up yesterday for $2.69 per gallon, which was with a 3 cent/gallon discount for using a Wal-Mart shopping card.

Prices in the area (southwest Ohio) are in the $2.72 to $2.85 range, depending on the day of the week.

Last night I paid $1.20 litre, which looks less but if converted into American dollars and gallons, is probably well over $5 gallon!

Default How Much is Gas?

Here along the East Coast of Florida it ranges from $2.99 and up for Regular. With a lot of places at over $3.00. Yesterday while out (with a full tank) I saw one place with 2.89 but am sure it wont last that long.

Burrito Supreme: $2.29
Taco Supreme: $1.40
Side of Refride Beans: $.99

Total: $4.68

The good thing is that it lasts for a whole week.

The gasoline is running about $2.89.

Take care,
Mike

Paid $2.79.9/gal for regular this afternoon in Hot Springs, AR. Saw prices that went as high as $2.85.9/gal.

I'm afraid prices will be brutal during the summer months

Donna,

Thanks for the comment about the pic. With all the clothes I'm wearing I look like the "Old me" and weigh 260 lbs. or I ate all the Taco Bell products I wrote about.

BTW: Gas in China was about $7/gallon.

Take care,
Mike
