    With gas prices replacing the weather as the favorite topic of casual conversation, I thought it'd be interesting to see how much gasoline is going for in your respective location.


    The average here is $3.37 per gallon for regular unleaded gas, which is the highest it's ever been. The statewide average is $3.40 per gallon for regular unleaded gas, which is also the highest it's ever been.


    As I've mentioned a few times before, I don't drive or own a car, but I do give whomever I bum a ride from money for gas. It used to be that I could give three dollars and they'd be happy with that. Now I can't give less than five dollars without getting a cold stare and a deep exhale from my ride (I exaggerate).:redface: Still, it's less than a taxi and it beats coming home on the bus with bags full of groceries or whatever else!:biggrin1:

    We are paying way more... lol...
    I'm anywhere from $1.11 - 1.18 depending on the time of day.
    *edit*
    Americans would be paying: $4.50 a gallon, if they were paying the prices we are Gillette

    110 or so per L.

    Still too cheap to make people change their driving habits, IMO.

    CA$1.05/L is the cheapest unleaded in Toronto,
    conversion US$3.36/US gallon

    But it ranges up to CA$1.15/L unleaded, just east of Toronto,
    conversion US$3.68/US gallon

    There's about to be a bloody tea party soon.

    Seriously. And this is down from last weeks prices!

    And Europe pays even more. It's pretty shocking.

    We hit a lovely $3.59 USD / gallon today. Can't tell you how thrilled I was about that one.

    (I believe that's about $0.95 USD / litre or about 103.0 CAD / litre. I realize that gas prices in Europe are probably close to twice as much - but I believe they also have more fuel efficient vehicles in general.)

    In the Trenton-Princeton, NJ metro area regular unleaded varies between $2.99 and $3.10 per gallon. Almost makes me glad my car is in the shop. :tongue:

    Anchorage is below the national average, there was a report on NPR that it was the lowest in the US here, and the highest in San Francisco, however, there are Alaskan villages where it has to be air freighted and costs $7. a gallon. People in those places mostly do not have cars, rather four wheelers for summer, and snowmachines for winter, no roads.

    I was shocked the first time I drove through Canada, it cost $118.C to fill up, it was hard to enjoy the scenery, for looking at the gas guage go down, this was in 1984.

    It hit $3.69 US just south of Grand Rapids today... I'm thinking seriously about getting my motorcyle endorsement and buying a little 600cc road bike.

    Is it true that motorcycles get much better gas mileage than automobiles (certainly better than the ridiculous, hulking Ford F-350's the rednecks around here are so fond of driving!) in general?
