$45-$55 (us), depending on how low i allow it to get

edit: actually 94 octane is like 3.19 now so it'd be closer to $60-$65

$75.00 to fill my 32 gallon tank in my Chevy. That'* been lasting me from 3-4 DAYS Sadly, I can't wait until we get the Neon back on the road.

I still thank my lucky stars that I don't have to buy gas in Canada though!

My last fillups were $58 for Bonny, $93 For Dodge dually diesel, $9 dollars for V-Star, $100 for Suntracker boat, $15 for Craftsman lawn mower, and several that dont qualify here because they dont move on there own. I can remember paying 19 cents a gallon for a '64 Catalina Sport Coupe with a very large gas tank... and ya got a 6 pack of Coke, a free car wash, and a dorky litter bag to hang on your radio ****.

At the risk of sounding unpatriotic, How come our troops are getting killed overseas if we can't keep the price of gas at a reasonable level?

We should invade and occupy the OPEC nations, and see how they like having their nuts in a vice.
