    Here in WV we are at $2.95/gal.

    I guess I will be walking soon at these prices. Someone just shoot me now please...I do not think I can handle that.

    These prices are ridiculous I am at a loss for words...well for this board...LOL ;)

    I am interested in prices from all over please share with me.

    Hoping the price comes down for us all,

    The summer season is coming soon, the prices will climb some more.

    It fluctuates by the day, but today it is 2.79 in Eastern WA.

    And going higher!

    I try to cram all my shopping into one day now.

    Did you know that Exxon/Mobile made over $10 billion (that's billion with a "B") in ONE quarter last year!!! And they're still jacking our prices. Shameful!

    here of Ontario Canada we are at $1.09 a litre
    I am soooo fed up with these prices...maybe we should go back to the horse and buggy stage, we get poorer and the government get richer, I heard that there is no relief for this high gas rate..but that is here in Canada,I did a conversion and it works out to $3.63 a gallon here.
    how sickening.

    that oil has shot up to a NEW high of $75/barrel... so prices will be increasing....... unbelievable!

    News also said that in Beverly Hills it is now $4/gal --before this new high was reached...

    average elsewhere was around $3/gal.

    ...Thanks for sharing. I would love to see those oil execs try to live on a limited budgeted like we do and buy their gasoline...

    Sorry I wasn't trying to upset anyone (I am sure we all are anyway) I was just wondering...yea with summer coming it will be worse...sigh

    I do wish I had a horse...actually I have thought about looking in to a Moped Scooter. LIL (live in love) has a Harley Davidson (Shovel Head) but it is way too big for me to handle.

    at $2.99 a gallon, in Orange County, Southern California. yikes! I have to drive this weekend, so figured I'd better top the tank before the prices go up again by tomorrow.

    Someone, somewhere, is making a LOT of money from this. Grrrrr.

    I know folks who run their cars in Nebraska on ethanol ! All of the citizens of Brazil use Ethanol in their cars and it works great . I do not blame the
    Saudis as much as the corporate American honchos who make excuses constantly to raise prices as they rake in HUGE profits . I personally believe it is oil company lobbyists
    who have fought to keep us dependent on them and without alternatives . This is so Disgusting .

    We have been at $3.o6 for cheapest for a few days now. My friend drove over last night and said cheapest is now $3.12.

    Last Monday we drove to a nearby village and passed three gas stations, ten minutes later driving back all three had upped their prices by 5c. Now, they had not had delivery of new gas, so to me that is price gauging.

    We drive a caravan and it cost us $47 for three quarters of a tank.

    How are people supposed to get to work as the bus runs 6 am till 7 pm once an hour and costs $120 for a month ticket.

    On the other hand people will drive less which will help the environment.

    I wish I had

    a bike,

    the energy to ride it,

    AND the roads were safe to ride on...

    I heard this morning that 'they' are predicting $5/gal average country-wide this summer, sigh....

    $2.85, but the cabs have not gone up yet, so I will not worry for now. And an extra 25 cents per trip will not bother me. So, who needs a car with all of this gas and insurance and maintenance and payments, etc. And it is so much easier.

    God bless you who drive.
