I drove by a few gas stations today it looks like it may be going down to me, yesterday was 77 cents a litre today its 70, maybe i'll go fill up while the price is half decent.
BTW those were prices for regular.

Gas in my area is upto 83.9 cents a litre for octane 87, and 90.9 cents a litre for what I always give the Bonnie... octane 91.

I was 79.9 for regular for like 2 months.... but the gas companys blame the recent blackout for raising the prices..... they'll use any excuse to raise the prices... but they never come down.

I miss the good old days of 39cents a litre... which wasn't too long ago...

I was in CA this past weekend. When I crossed the border, premium shot up 20 cents a gallon, and dropped from 92 to 91 octane. Gotta love CA emissions laws and the crappy gas, eh?

Here in lovely mankato (all are welcome to make the annual pilgrimage to visit me and seth) Mid and Low grade are the same price. And a lil cheaper then the Twin Cities as well too. Glad i filled up at $1.49 a week ago at the PDQ by abbies house, when EVERY other gas station withen the 6 miles between our houses was 1.65...

don't know if you all have heard about our "little problem" here in Arizona, but a major pipeline burst that supplies 30% of our gas stations here in the Phoenix metro area...so that'* caused prices to go up to $2.50 a gallon(some places are charging $4 because we currently have no price gouging laws). Over half of the gas stations have closed because they've run out of gas, people are going crazy and stealing gas from other people. It'* ridiculous. They probably won't have the pipe fixed until next week.
