S.E. Connectitax $2.93- $2.99.

Kinda surprising that you do not hear more about gas station owners being killed for trying to prevent drive-offs ( not that i am condoning it, just surprised by the fact).

Central North Carolina $2.99-$3.59 today, probably at least $.15-.20 higher tomorrow.
Prices vary widely from station to station. Some stations have run out of gas and some others are out of regular. People are keeping their tanks full in fear of the gas running out or paying a lot more tomorrow.

I remember when you could get gas for only $2.35/gallon....the good ol' days...LOL

Anyone have a used moped for sale???

In our part of Canada we pay $1.15/litre which converts to $4.37 US/gal.

Would I date myself if I said the first gas price increase I experienced was before metric measure and the price went from 47 cents /gal to 50 cents/gal.

Does that mean I'm older than the hills if I remember gas prices in lower teens?

GregH
Last time I was in Canada, gas was more than the states - 25 cents but then I remembered an imperial gal has 5 qts which made the price close to the same. As you can tell I haven't been north of the border in awhile.

Gas was $2.83 two days ago. Yesterday it dropped to $2.78 and you had to wait in LONG lines. Today it will probably be back up and over the $2.83.
Guess I am in the middle agewise here. I remember when cigarettes and gas were the same price. $.25 a gallon/pack. Of course you got a free glass or a bunch of stamps with the gas purchase. Lucky Strike and Camel did not have filters then either.

Here in the nw suburbs of chicagoland, the cheapest is $3.19. In a suburb about 45 mins east of me I just paid $2.99 for the cheapest. I wonder who will be the first to offer a jar of vasiline with your purchase.

$3.49 9/10 at my favorite station today
'Course it's Labor Day Weekend and we're a beach town
Gotta get the last few nickels out of the summer people

And the station has a Brand New Pre-Pay Policy...I'm sure they are worried about drive-offs

What's up with the 9/10ths of a penny? Do they ever round down? Like if it comes to $96.22 and 3/10ths, are they going to say "OK...$96.22"

I've always thought that was stupid. I'm sure it started with a gas war so it would appear that the other guys gas was more expensive.

How many people remember that 'gas wars' didn't originate in the middle east?
Things have settled down around here - avg gas price - $2.95, lines are gone but most everywhere you must pre pay and $30 maximum purchase.

$2.99-3.19 here now. The in-town stations are a little short of supplies, but near the interstate they seeem to have plenty (because they know they can charge a higher price out there anyway).

Most stations around here have been pre-pay (or crdit card at the pump) for a couple of years, nothing new there.

Tow Guy used to get change back from a buck when he filled his motorcycle on the way to high school.....

I toured some of the USA on a bike in the early 70's. No matter how high the gas or empty the tank I never could put a whole dollars worth in it.

Yeah, $.23/gal for 95 octane regular.

A microwave was when you went surfing and all there was was a little ripple on the surface.

Cable TV was what they had in motel rooms; the tv had a cable anchoring it to the wall to prevent theft.

Color TV meant what color was the CABINET it was in.

The best radio stations were on the AM band.

Three channels on the TV (four if you counted PBS).

The assistant principal at the Jr High had a paddle the size of a cricket bat and it wasn't just for "show".

Cartoons were only on Saturday mornings (unless you count "Davey & Goliath" on Sunday morning).

It's funny how quickly the price of gas goes up when the oil price goes up and supply goes down but now that the price of oil has gone down, supply lines are being fixed, and the summer driving season is over, the price of gas doesn't drop any, or if so, just a few cents.

The oil companies have our number. Raise gas prices to $3.50 and when they come down to $2.99 we are happy they came down - but wasn't it just a year ago we were paying $1.50?
