    The prices around here have been at $1.45 for the cheap stuff for awhile now, pretty much add .10 cents for each grade higher. BTW I'm in southeast Washington.

    It's $1.37 a gallon here for the cheap $hit and then add about $0.10 a gallon for each higher octane after that. But i'm sure the prices will go up so. I live in Historic Gettysburg, Pa. Tourist season starts soon and prices always go up during tourist season.

    1.47 here for 87 octane right now. I liked it last year (I think) when it was down below a buck a gallon. My Honda (its gone now don't flame me for driving rice [​IMG] loved me then. I drove a ton just for the hell of it.

    Yeah were getting the shaft here in Sacramento consider your selfes lucky,I pay $1.72 for 87 at Shell. Good thing I got a V6 in my work truck, the 350 in the Blazer would kill my wallet especially at an average of 250 miles a day.

    $1.95 a gallon for 93 at Arco, which is about the cheapest I can find it her in the HIGH PRICE CAPITAL of the country. But hey, with the electricity prices around here jumping another 36%, on top of the 9% last month, gas is starting to look damn cheap!

    Sacramento, CA....it's about $1.65 cheap stuff (Arco) in certain parts of town. But I have seen the cheap stuff at $1.75 cuz it was in a prime location. The other places, like Shell, Chevron add a dime or 15 cents to every gallon they always cost more.....

    I was in SF Friday and I am glad I didn't have to fill up while there. Cheap stuff was $1.91 I saw at a Arco.....

    Now our gas for our houses is going up in price! If you are considering moving here don't! Trust me your wallet will thank you for it! Our bill went from $48 this time last year to $148 this month. They just decided to raise our rates 30-40% again! ARGH...!!

    Can't win when buying any kind of gas here in CA!

    well let's see, 87 here is going for about 65 cents a litre, and there's about 3.8 litres in a US gallon so that's $2.47 CDN and we're probably one of the cheaper areas in the country. Of course if i were to pay in US funds, they'd probably owe me money!

    Here in the Netherlands it is about a dollar per LITER!!! So it will be abou $4,5 for a gallon.

    That's why I run it on LPG. (Liquid gas) Gives a smoother run too. Bit more horsepower.
