    Just curious,

    I was popped to the tune of $60 yesterday to fill the warpig. What on average are y'all paying?

    $2.05/gal for regular here in SW MI.

    (Maybe the 6.2's day has finally come. Nah.)

    Out here in NC...........
    $1.49 87 oct.
    $1.59 89 oct.
    $1.69 93 oct.

    This is the local Amoco station. The "generics" ar about 2 or 3 cents cheaper except out in the rural mom and pop stores. This is as of this morning on my way to work....

    Wasn't me.............

    It's about $1.60 in northern nevada.

    They say its becauase it is expensive to transport from the refinary. MOst refinaries are in Cali right?
    We are only a hour from cali!!

    Sounds like a good scam to me!

    Have fun.

    1.529 here in the Idaho Panhandle. It
    is a little ruff on the wallet when
    that old needle gets down below E for
    a day or two. Sounds like you're
    gettin' banged even harder in SW MI
    Picard. $2.09's pretty spendy!

    In Tucson Az it ranges from 1.37 to 1.49 for regular unleaded. What I want to know is..... A gas station pays for the gas when its delivered. Cash, no credit. Pay now or you don't get it. Then the distributor calls the dealer and says raise the price 2 cents or 3 cents. If the gas has already been paid for how can they dictate whether to lower or raise the price. I worked at a privately owned (not leased) Texaco station years ago and this used to drive me nuts.

    Here in B.C. canada its about .70 cnts per liter.
    The lowest i can remeber was about a year ago when it was .39 cents per liter.
    You do the math.

    p.s. is it hard to convert a 350 to propane?
    Probane is about .35 cents per liter.

    62.9 per litre here in the Canadian Rockies.........Let's see- four litres to a gallon, so........(calculating) that's about $2.50 CDN a gallon. It sounds like that's alot. But it could be worse.....The cost of gas in Nova Scotia(East coast) is around 87 cents a litre, which is around $3.50/gallon. So quit yer' whinin', Yanks!!!!!hehehe

    The reason Michigan is getting screwed this week is because a gas pipeline broke somewhere near Jackson, Michigan....and apparently the line belongs to one of michigans major gas suppliers. Thus the mongo gas prices.
