Default How about those rising gas prices, huh?

Here in So. Ca. the prices have jumped at least 35 cents per gallon in the last 11 days. The lowest price for 91 octane super unleaded in my area is now $2.12 per gallon (as of last night).

What a country...it always amazes me to see how quickly prices can rise, yet how slowly they fall. I suspect it'* always caused by greed. Too bad it'* legal for them to do this to everyone...

I haven't seen 67 cents in Southern Ontario since the break of the second Gulf War. Prices now around here are at 77-80 cents a litre.

A decent fill up costs me 35 bux 4 times a month

Even out here in the sticks its $1.79 for 93 octane. And did you know in Illinois the gas prices can change anytime during the same day, its all up to the particular station figuring out when they get the most customers.

YAY ILLINOIS IS THE FUN STATE!

*Sigh* Remember the times a few years ago down here, in what, 1996-ish? 49.9 per litre.
