Went to get gas today and as I pulled out of the bank I noticed it was 2.35 for regular at the speedway, so I continued down the street to the Meijer station I always buy my gas at (because speedway gas is the worst gas I've ever used) and they hadn't gone up yet. I paid 2.32 for premium but had to wait in line for 20 minutes. But that was this morning, so I'm sure its up to about 2.55 or so for the 93 octane now.

Yeah, its pretty high, but not quite as high as you are trying to make it sound. And no, I don't mean that in a mean way.

But that is $2.83 USD.

I really feel bad though for my fellow high school aged people. I have a well paying job and it hurts everytime I go to the pump, I can't imagine how it is for people that are not as fortunate as me.

You know what, I don't understand why you are converting it over to USD$$$. Who cares what it is in USD$$$ we still pay for gas in CAD$$$.

And Merlin, yeah I know what you mean, I paid something like 1.069$ per litre today.

So that is

4,04$ per Gallon in CAD$$$ since I live in CANADA, I pay for everything in CAD$$$


I'd like to see it hit 4.04$ per Gallon in the U.*. then what are you gonna convert the currency to, in order to make it sound cheaper???

I think he was just trying to say that it isn't THAT much more. Not that I agree with him, because you guys have been paying that for a long time and another $.30 a gallon is still a lot, but I think he was just trying to compare it to the gas here and was saying there isn't much difference.

I work 20-23 hours a week making $5.15 (minimum wage) and probably half my check goes towards gas. Thats my choice as I don't drive in the most gas conserving way, and I don't drive the most fuel efficient car, I choose to accelerate quickly from the stoplights and drive a car that drinks premium, and on top of that I then choose to modify that car thus reducing the gas mileage, but it is almost starting to cost me too much money, and I'm seriously considering getting something that will be a little better on gas, and/or a second job.

Prices are affected by supply and demand. The more we demand, the higher the price.

Some of our boys & girls across the water in the far east are paying the ultimate cost for freedom.
Yah. This was on my mind when I started this thread and remembering alot of people saying that we were going to war to get cheap gas. It burned my @^$ back then and still does.
Do I want gas prices to go down? You bet ya! Do I want the people of Iraq to live free like we do? another yes.
Do I want our troops home with there famillies? Yes! God bless them .

Just put $20 of 87 octane :( into the Lesabre -I have always used Premium, but when I saw $2.39 a gallon for premium, that'* where I draw the line with a car that doesn't require it.
I still had to pay $2.21 for the 87 octane. I considered the 90 octane, but $2.29 a gallon is still too rich for my tastes'. I'll never be ready for the $3.00/gallon they are predicting for this summer.
