Poll - Cost of Gas?

Just an informal poll 'cuz I'm curious.  We went to Chicago this weekend where I about had a stroke at their gas prices.  $4.39, my friends.  I don't need to tell you how obscene that is when we paid $3.56 before we left home.


So....what are you paying?  
Can you beat $4.39?  (my sympathy)
Can you do better than $3.56? (sooo jealous!)

Edited to add:  Just got back from lunch where I was delighted to see our price has dropped to $3.49!!  
(I may be taking optimism too far....)

I just checked on Gasbuddy.com. $3.49 in my neck of the woods.

Would it be wrong to gloat just a little?

Ours just dropped to 3.39 at one place today. It's sad to me that this is low. I remember when it hit $3--I hit the roof. Such mind games. Got us outraged at $4 so $3.50 seems good in comparison.

Oh, and $3.39 in St. Louis.

The highest I ever paid was $4.28, when I lived in The Evil Empire State, New York.

Up here in Canada, we pay by the litre. It's $1.199/litre right now in southern Alberta. (This works out to $4.79/gallon)

I'm around the $3.50 mark... Thank God I don't live where it's over $4 YIKES!

Yesterday we were at $3.74. We were in Milwaukee a few weeks ago and it was 15 cents more than where I live on the other side of the state, which is crazy.

Wow! That is expensive for gas. Ours has come down to around $3.23. I've been to a lot of places, and where I live does generally have some of the cheapest gas around the country. I'm not sure why, though.

I am in Denver this week and the gas is around $3.60 which is a little better than New Jersey which was closer to $4 when I left.

3.57

Gas prices make me sick.

$3.25 here in Canton, OH. Don't know how that happened or how long it will last.

Here in WA, gas is about 3.28 - last I checked. :)

Lowest I've seen here is $3.42.

Janet Johnson said...

Best I've seen in DC is $3.89. Though I get the grocery store discount because I spend all my money there. ;)

$3.89 in torrance, california, just south of la.
as a former resident, there's not a lot of democracy in chicago, with the corporate outfit firmly in politics, just like at the national level.

When we filled up last weekend, I think we paid about $3.56 a gallon.

Cheapest here is $3.59 a gallon. Problem is - both Michael and I drive high performance cars, so we have to use Premium gas, which is $3.99.
