    So how much are you all paying per gallon these days? Here in my neck of the woods in Oregon a gallon runs about $3.11 for regular, some stations a little more some a little bit less.

    I hope this thread isn't a repeat. I was just curious what the prices are around the country or anywhere in the world really.

    I live 15 miles from where they pump oil out of the ground, and 30 miles from where they refine it into fuel. Were paying $3.31 today.

    I think it was $3.04 last time I filled up. But i have to admit, I try not to look.

    My last tank was 50 something and I think per gallon was 3.39 middle grade. . I have to check my book for sure. I have a whole excel sheet with prices, fill up, mileage, odometer, oil changes, maintenance, light bulb change etc... *hugs gas guzzling car*

    I was griping when ours hit 3.05. But I guess We are still cheaper than most.
    It fell today to 2.78. Looks like Christmas came early
    What ticks me off is how it flucuates without much reason.
    Ours may go up or down 10 or even 20 cents over night.

    Some times I wonder why people will drive the extra 3 miles to get gas 10 cents cheaper... when it saves them all of a dollar or dollar 50, which is negated by the fact of operating the car for those three miles cost more in the long run.
