    They are talking about a national average, 2.25 in Cali, 1.67 in Florida, you take all prices and average the out.

    BTW those prices are just to give the idea, since people don't the "National Average" part of the comments

    Well we don't make a special trip, but usually just put in enough to get there and fill up, but at $.30 cheaper per gallon it's about worth it

    Average here is 2.15-2.25 for 87. Costco or Sams Club is around $2/gal. What really pisses me off is the price for diesel was 1.97 last week now it jumped to 2.30 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    i would put up with the high gas prices like you guys state above in order to be able to live somewhere such as Cali where things other than just cornfields and farm stores actually exist,

    im tired of missing out and being sheltered here.

    the msnbc story on these prices is way behind, hmm.

    $1.49/gal for diesel
    $1.59/gal for unleaded

    I spend $90 a week in fuel for the CTD with the amount of miles we drive.
