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

It's $1.65 here for 87 cheapest I've seen....I usually get my fill 2 or 3 times a week at the Fina for $1.67-$1.69 depending on which one I go to...usually around $45 a pop...so I run $90-$135 a week...But...I got the Company Credit card, and it's a Company truck...haven't put gas in the K5 for about a month, and still have over half a tank...The wife runs about $15 a week thru her Altima.....It's gonna get Much worse.... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

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.
