    Socal.

    cheep gas is hovering at 3.99 9/10 (which it has been for weeks - I think they are afraid of putting the 4 up on the signs)
    premium is anywhere from 4.29 to 4:39...

    I love my prius.

    <~ 3.69 for regular / 3.99 for premium around my county (3.67 / 3.97 for the 2nd tier [i.e GATE Petroleum] or no-name brands)

    The most expensive would be the airport 3.74 / 4.04

    went and bought 60 gallons and put in gas cans for 3.55 a gallon just in case it goes up any faster. many have advised me against this but I already had the gas cans and will use the gas so what the heck. and who knows it may hit 5.00 a gallon

    $3.65 in town today, and expected to go up tomorrow. Salida, Colo....I'm sure we get our gas straight from the middle east, cause when a Saudi gets a "cold", our prices go up immediately! I don't see that many fuel tankers delivering all on the same day!:glare:

    What I find amazing in all of this is the range of prices in a relatively small area. I can drive around within 5 miles of home and find a range of around $0.30 per gallon or more. From state to state local and state taxes can make a big difference.

    Here in south Florida, often the prices nearest the ports are some of the highest. Of course all of this is being controlled by supply and demand (Econ 101) so I guess the stations selling the most gas have the highest prices, right.

    Anyway around Boynton Beach I see 3.779 down to 3.619 just on a simple errand around town.

    OH WOW - gas price dropped by a penny overnight ... now it's "only" $1.25 ... OH that is a litre BTW. That translates to $4.73 / US gal. Go figure we send our gas to the US and it's sold cheaper there ... just like ski-doos that are built in Quebec can be bought cheaper in the US ...

    On the bright side I purchased a Prius last year (much fewer visits to the gas station) and was fortunate to be still able to buy it in the US at well below CDN prices.

    Regular finally broke the $4 barrier (401.9) at the Chevron nearest my home. Arco and Costco are about $0.20 less per gallon.
