3.0X by my house, 2.8X about 10 miles away and 2.6X by the beach about 2 hours away.

Its all about what they think you can afford in your area. Sucks, but our society has no more morals, its all about $ and untill something happends just suck it up and deal with it.

Saw a punp the other day that I stopped to fill the Jeep at. Must have been a 30 gallon tank like my old dodge. The price to fill that vehicle made me rethink my little old jeep and how much it cost to drive it each week.

The pump said 88 dollars for 28 gallons. My dodge 1/2 ton use to burn 27 gallons a week on average.

I LOVE MY JEEP!!!!!

always think positive, it just feels better:D

Oh yeah up to 3.15 a gallon here

3.30 for the cheapest 87 octane here in San Diego area. Most places are 3.35- 3.55 for 87... On my way home yesterday I saw a sign for 87 @ 3.19 and was going to stop 'til I realized that was IF you paid for a car wash. :mad:

Still though, the Jeep gets better mileage than my last vehicles and is just fun to drive. I've been thinking about a diesel conversion though so I can run bio or veggie oil.:cool:

$2.89 for 87 here. Even though the prices are high, I would still stuff a V8 in her if I had the cash to complete the conversion. ;)

I try to only fill my Acura up when absolutely necessary. It uses premium so I just don't drive it that often. I filled it up last week and it was more than $40 for 15 gallons! It gets great mileage but who can pay $3+ a gal every week?

Well, the high gas prices have had an upside where I live in the poconos, housing market has gone from 3,000 to over 7,500 homes for sale in a year, alot of them repossesed from people who just walked away or went bankrupt. Cut down bigtime on people moving out here from NYC and LI for sure. The bus commute from here to NYC also trippled in the past year or so, almost $400 a month now.
Neighbor works at a bank and she says the amount of people that are going into major dept on gas charges is unreal.... Three years ago it was .99 a gallon up here, last year it broke $2, it's heading for over $3. I used to spend $40 a week commuting to allentown at .99, then it doubled and cost me $80, now if I was still commuting it would be $120. Would be even worse if I was still doing the 180mi a day commute to lucent in NJ. The oil companies need to be reigned in, but too many big money people have too much to gain by the record profits so it will go till it breaks and I don't think thats too far down the road either...

Last price I saw was yesterday at 2.83 in Exton, PA. When I filled up in the Lehigh Valley over the weekend it was 2.79. I'm actually surprised that gas prices have stabilized. A few months ago I could drive up to Allentown and save almost 10 cents on a gallon of gas, now they are only pennies off.

Last time it went up at the 7/11 by the house here it jump from 3.29 to 3.35 in 6 hours.

Couple months ago I pulled up to the station and it was 2.99. By the time i got done pumping it had jumped to 3.05. Guess my timing was good.

BTW- Remember in September and October when the prices were dropping at least as quickly as they are rising now? All the politicians were playing it cool but we all KNEW it was all a political game and then the prices jumped 10 cents plus the day AFTER election day!

I'm in denial about the gas prices - I think they're over $3.00 in RI for 87 now. I drove the Jeep to work for the first time because it had gas in it and I didn't want to get gas for the car. Now I have to fill up the car and the Jeep....maybe I'll take the bike tomorrow.
