Cry  Regular Gas in N.E. Pa., is now $4.00 a gallon!  High test is $4.35.  So much for fall travel. We got $66.00 worth this morning. I have to go to work. First frost was 09/11/12! OUCH. Had to scrape the windshield.

super OUCH.  The big thing here in SC is a few stations are going to pure gas (NO ethanol).  It is a tad bit more expensive, but I do get a tad bit better mileage.  I am extremely lucky.  My house is 4.1 miles from the office.  My daily driver is a 2000 triple black convertible that was bought in 2005 (my wife's idea) and if I drive it ONLY to work and back (use her car on the weekends for errands) I can fill up once per month.  Last time I filled up the price was $3.99.9 per gallon for the high test.  Mid-grade is 10 cents cheaper, but when I fill up only once per month, that would be a difference of approximately $1.50 - $1.60 for the tank...not worth it.

Mr. Ebo Sir,
I don't know how you would attach that to the top of your Corvette(s)!

It's getting back up there again here, too. $3.85 for mid-grade. I don't even look at the price of Premium anymore....just slide the card thru and fill-er-up. Too depressing if I know how much I just spent....

I do a lot of coasting too, but in the C5.  If I take my foot off of the gas pedal in the C3, even on a pretty good hill, I slow down and almost stop.

Geez, Mark, guess we're lucky so far, gas here in Wichita is $3.72 for reg, $3.84 for mid and $3.96 for premium.  Just filled up this morning and cost $68.00 in the C6.  I drive my little pickup with the V6 most of the time and get @ 20mpg in town.  Gonna have to look for a go-cart if things get much worse.   Cry

Just filled up here in Ontario, Canada. Better sit down boys...$1.539 a litre for premium. That works out to $5.83 a US gallon in Canadian dollars and I see the US dollar is worth 97.6 cents Canadian today. So 5.83/.976 = $5.97 US$ per US gallon. You guys have got it made down there. Cry

On the way home this afternoon two stations at the same intersection were up a dime since yesterday to $3.97 and $3.99 for regular.  And they both jumped 12 pennies a week ago as well.

Truly an ingenious invention, but not practical...NO cup holder!  My gandfather used to buy and restore those old one lung engines....so this brought back some fond memories!
Thanks for posting that one!

4.10 up this way. The cheapest gas I saw in recent memory was returning from Florida and filling up in New Jersey after we stopped at DaveM's house. $1.40 gal about 4 years ago. I'm tired of getting soaked.
