I put in my zip code and it popped up and said "You're kidding right?? "

That's a good page to have. But really the ones that came up were to far away to bother.

The closest town to us, well the only town listed in Mississippi, came up about 10 higher than what we're paying. Memphis, TN shows a high of $2.27, and a low of $2.19, which is still higher than our little town of Southaven! I'll try not to complain since we're still about 40-50 cheaper than a lot of states that I clicked on.

Interesting... three tools in one.
Gas prices via voluntary contributions.
Apathy / Inoculation(?) via zip code.
Analysis tool (linear and inverse, business and otherwise)
when coupled with other data.

Kay,
I'm envious, price wise. The local projection nears $3.00
toward mid-summer. Not exactly the EU, yet.

I don't know what we'll do if gas goes to $3 a gallon here. I'm grateful that I don't drive that 4x4 anymore. I thought it was bad enough to spend $35 to fill it up (got around 15 mpg) a couple of years ago. I still cringe now because I drive a Taurus and get decent gas mileage, but it still costs me $30+ to fill up depending on the price of the day.

I drive only about 60 miles during the week - if that, but my husband works in Memphis so he's constantly running around town and also back here (since some of his jobs are in this area). He fills his truck up at least twice a week.

I may have to drag the bicycle back out. Guess its a good thing that I decided to take all my classes online next semester. Keep me from driving that 10 miles, 3 times a week.

How is everyone else coping with the prices? I'm sure a majority of the members here have to go further than I do during the week. Has anyone started seeing budget recommendations that use a percentage of income for gasoline like they do mortgages LOL? Guess its not really funny since it might come to that one day.

Be thankful you don't have to fill up every day like I do, Kay!

Thanks for the link!

Thanks to you, I found gas for $1.99/gal yesterday . Second cheapest price in the state (MI), and only a few miles away from me. The chepest was $1.95, but the lines there were ungodly.

Most places around me are selling for $2.20 to $2.25/gal.

And the cheapest place in town today was $2.26 (down a couple of cents from day before). I'm just thankful we have gas engines in two out of our threee trucks; the diesel engine guys are getting killed with fuel prices in the $2.50 range.

Can't wait until this summer when I get to sample the California prices. My daughter and I are flying out to visit Yosemite, but the last leg of the trip (airport to park and back) is by rental car. I would hate to have a vacation planned this year that called for a lot of driving.

Since I last posted in this thread we've gone from $2.04 a gallon (87o) to $2.59. I didn't catch the higher octanes, tho.

I wonder why the page reloads on you? I know some sites do that to me because of my security settings but it doesn't do that on that site.

We're back down to $2.15 a gallon here. Wonder if it just goes up on the weekends?

The cheapest gas in my area is $2.219, but it is a small consolation since I get 12 mpg in my 83 Dodge pickup. Thank goodness it has the 225 c.i. slant 6 instead of a 360 c.i. V-8.

It's just amazing how we will get used to higher prices with the way they jump up and down. Maybe not used to them but we get happy at a little drop yet still way above what I think it should be. Take for instance right now. In my area it was averaging $2.15 p/gal last night it dropped to $2.07 p/gal at many places and they were swamped and my friends were actually sighing in reief on how they saved a couple bucks?? Yeah it's nice to save a couple bucks but remember a month ago when gas was $1.95 p/gal and when it went over $2.00 everyone about had coronaries?? $2.07 is still alot.

I guess we're just relieved to see it heading back towards the $2 mark. I was paying $1.29 in August for gas.

Evidently a few of the local stations haven't been keeping up with the local forecast. It's supposed to be around $ 3.00 a gallon in mid summer, not $ 2.97 just because you feel like it.

Such a deal. Charge $2.97 a gallon, then redude the price $ 0.25. Oh, I'm getting a real bargain today!
