It'* 2.29 here for regular and goes up in 10 cent incriments. Poor people with supercharged that have to pay the highest amount. It is killing my son!

just the other day premium here was 2.75 a gallon and regular was 2.55. :( This really sucks for me because just a few months ago I was getting 29 MPG average.. now that the gas has gone higher my car just now decides it wants to get only 22 MPG average.

Custom I think that the gas is a lower grade, thus lowering your MPG

and thoughts?
