    Gas prices are on the rise and they're pretty much a pain in the ass. How much is gas where you live?

    It's currently $3.85 where I live in Delaware.

    $1.30/litre in Thompson, Manitoba.

    Works out to just a hair over $5/gallon.

    It's a good thing I drive a whole three minutes to work every day, and that's about it. $60 to fill up a Civic is just plain ol' fucked up.

    It's ranging from $3.76 - $3.89 here in Florida right now. Sorta sucks cause I drive a whoooole lot. But at least we're not at $4. Yet.

    Wow. really guys?

    It's, when I last checked, $4.21.

    I personally thank the 35.2c California Gas Tax.

    edit: And those aren't by the freeway.

    It's around 1.39 on average per litre here in the UK which is around $2.29 (according to the latest currency rates).

    I don't drive and I probably wont start any time soon with those sort of prices.

    Oh how walking everywhere is bliss at times.

    Last time I checked, here in Pensacola gas prices are about $3.90.

    Yeahhhhh, not a great time for me to have to learn to drive out of necessity. :/

    $3.89 here in STL. And my car requires premium so that's an additional 30 cents/gallon. I spend about 50 bucks a week in gas. Unfortunately, if I moved any closer to work, I'd be in the ghetto, so I'm stuck where I am. >_<

    Not that any of those prices are good, but I'd much rather have those than the California gas prices. It's about $4.21 here, and rises a few cents each week. We'll be hitting $5 a gallon in no time.

    You Californians are starting to creep towards Canadian prices there!

    Also, $1.81/litre ($6.84/gallon) for Jet-A the last time I had to use the company card to get gas at a place we didn't have an account set up. Typical loads are somewhere in the 300-400 litre range (that's the uplift), depending on where I'm going..we land with around 1000 pounds (540 litres) in the tanks after every leg. On a typical day, I go through around 2200 litres of the flammable stuff per day (that's around $4,000 in gas) :lol:

    Not cheap.

    Be happy that this is all you're spending. I'm looking at $61.00 every week.

    It's $3.70-$3.80 in OKC/Stillwater. Not cool in a 06 Dodge Ram.

    Half the people in OK are in the Oil industry, and the stupid thing is they say it's all based on speculation, and there's no logical supply and demand variable here. Basically because the Middle East is going through their thing, the oil companies (my dads natural gas don't be mad) jack it up based on speculation.

    Newsflash: The stock market in general is based on speculation.
