Post anything here related to gas and the current price in your area. Its something we all do... well most, fill up. Even if you dont everyone is affected because the cost is passed on to other things like groceries.

Today I saw that gas was up to $4.09 I even saw a $4.15... I did manage to find a lone station that was $3.95. Probably the last time in awhile that I will ever pay under $4 again. This was in southern Wisconsin.

Cost $40 for 3/4 tank and my 99 blazer is pretty horrible on gas mileage.

$4.39 in suburban Chicago!

If the thread lasts, I'll post what it is actually in Chicago tomorrow when I go in to work. Should be a little closer to $4.50.

It was like $3.50 in Houston the last time I went back. I guess the closer to the Gulf of Mexico then the cheaper it is. I think Houston is about the only city loving the high gas prices. Unemployment has dropped big time in the city over the last few months due to oil companies hiring.

In Huntsville, AL gas is 3.79 (although there hasn't been gas for a few days since the power has been out since Wednesday). I was in Atlanta on Saturday and it cost me $48.65 to fill up my Chevy Cobalt! I would expect to spend nearly 50 bucks to fill up a big truck or SUV. But I drive a freaking two-door coupe. $50 to fill up a tank is ridiculous.

I work part time at a convienence store/gas station and all I have to listen to all day is people ***** to me about the price of gas. Listen, don't complain to the people who work their, they have no control over the prices and they pay the same price you do. If you want to vent your anger, complain to the oil companies/ceos of exxon, texico, etc. Don't complain to the people who work their because they are just their to work and make a pay check to pay for the same high prices of gas that you do. Sorry, I know I sound like I'm ranting, but it just gets a little old listening to the same ***** ing and complaining over and over again when we have no say in how high the price of gas is set.

Man, I just realized how much cheaper gas is in the states right now than up here in Toronto.

We pay by the liter, and right now gas is about $1.38 per liter, which i believe is roughly about $5.22 per gallon, if my math is correct.

Except their tax dollars go toward viable public transportation. This country is so spread out, many people have no choice but to drive cars. I don't have a bus stop near me, we don't have a subway or commuter rail system at all, I have to drive. Europe's mass transit system is so much better.

ElectricEye
05-05-2011, 12:36 PM
Yeah, I've been to England a few times and can attest to that. Public transportation here is basically a joke compared to how it works in the parts of Europe I've seen. The commuter rails into Boston and Providence aren't bad in my area...but the rest of it is just complete old dirty ****/not available. A lot of that comes with living outside of cities...but I have no interest in moving into one anytime soon personally.

Tbf though it is still ridiculous, even for you guys. I remember when I first started driving it was below 1, now it's 1.35 (for a litre), unbelievable how much it's screwing people here.

A lot of that comes with living outside of cities...but I have no interest in moving into one anytime soon personally.

True but the main thing is the Tube in London which is fantastic whenever I've been, but I live about 2 and a half hours out of that, and the trains are fairly decent but for what I need it's very unlikely I could use public transport.

I go gym early in the morning (could get bus there) then hop straight on to the motorway to work which is about 15 mins away (would need to get 2 different buses which would take about an hour at a guess), then I have cricket training midweek where getting the metro/tram and then bus to there would mean it's over by the time I get there and also play soccer midweek too which again would be similar to above.

Don't get me wrong, I could probably get public transport to work but I guess it's all about situations, getting around quicker and generally having the freedom to go wherever I like/need whenever I like/need, plus I don't moan about much so have to moan about this. :D I know what your both sayin' tho (sorry for heading off topic)...anyways, back on topic: STUPID GAS PRICES!

I cant seem to figure out the reason for all this garbage. Oil prices going down doesnt seem to be moving prices lower at the pump. We already know lower gas consumption doesnt move them and something tells me more drilling wont lower it much either. Very frustrating.

As someone who isnt hurting financially it isnt changing my lifestyle at all but you have to feel bad for people struggling and small business.

Still not dropping much here. It's all such a huge scam and I'm thouroughly sick of it. Prices at the pump change immediately despite fuel in the underground tanks being several weeks old. And then there's the giant field of tanks that the trucks use to fill up for deposit at individual stations . . .


Price gouging = industry standard for big oil.

Makes you wonder if they adjust these prices to what people's ability to afford them are.

I love how a barrel of oil can drop 20% over a couple of weeks time and the gas at the pump drops about 5% if we're lucky.

Inflation does factor in, but I believe the pipelines from the Gulf help keep the Southeast generally cheaper. Also gas tax(SC's fourth lowest in the nation at 16.8 cpg, Cali's highest in the nation at 47.7 cpg).
