    Don't know why NJ has no self-serve. Every so often the gas station owners try to get it passed but they can't. Gas here is now about $3.27 - $3.29 per gallon. I filled up last Thursday for $3.09. Incidentally I hope we never go self-serve because we'll be paying our full-serve price for self-serve.

    No clue either, I would rather pump my own gas as well.
    2 weeks ago regular was $3.02 now it is $3.28 (at the same place)
    Sucks for all the gas guzzlers:D
    Happy Earth Day Everyone!

    Ouch holy crap ! That sure sounds like nothing now, but we have to start somewhere because one day they won't get 1 barrel of oil out of Saudi.... I prefer to visualise what 14m barrels would look like stacked up... anyone got any ideas for this ?

    Don't confuse them! They are Americans and their gallon is 3.78 litres, not 4.5

    In Italy it's just over $8 a gallon (€1.37 a litre)

    Hi!

    1 Gal. = $ 7,5 here in Austria :)
    Well, that´s ok - I drive a Prius!:rolleyes:

    I have a dream that one day all gallons of gas cost far more than $ 2,- around the globe and that all SUVs rest in peace!:D

    Hybrid your life!

    About 5 days ago, gas jumped overnight from $3.19 to $3.45. In the last day or two, it has started to edge down-was around $3.41 last night when I checked. This is for 89 octane E10-add about another dime a gallon for straight 87 octane gas. Funny how it never seems to drop in price as dramatically as it rises.

    I have noticed that the price of gas and diesel are starting to converge in my area (midwest). In late winter/early spring, diesel had an $.80 premium over gas. It's down to about a $.60 premium.

    The ARCO near me is $3.77 and they said it'll go higher by the end of the week. That's why I have GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada on my cell phone.

    I track them too but my booklet is in the car and I can't go get it now.
    Everyone is talking about the regular prices correct? not the high test.

    The average price in State College, PA as or today (4/24) is $3.65/gal. The price increased from $3.49/gal last week to $3.55 - 2 days ago to $3.59/gal yesterday morning to $3.65/gal last night.. Up 15 cent/gal in 1 week. This is total lunancy. How much more of a squeeze are these oil companies going to get out of us consumers. This is a real mess and something (I don't know what) has got to be done. I feel I am doing my part by driving less, buying a fuel effecient car and trying to conserve as I can. Hope these oil firms choke on there precious gold!!! OK I'll get off my soapbox and stop ranting..... OUCH!!!

    I spoke to soon. Gas jumped $.14 overnight the day I made this post. Now $3.55.

    Is this a function of the rebel/terrorist stuff going on in the Nigerian oil fields?
