    Since the BP pipeline shutdown announcement, what is regular gas going for in your area?

    $2.99 here yesterday, I’ve been afraid to look today.

    It's been about the same here today.

    It fluctuates between 2.85 and 3.05 all the time,for regular. Always goes up on Thursdays here.

    Someone at work told me that because of this pipeline thing,it could go up to 3.70..... I have no idea if this is true,or where she got that.


    I can't even remember when it was below 2.50 !!!! :scratch:

    $3.24 around here. However when I went to the Iowa/Illinois border today, it was about 3.00. :dunno:

    I heard that the price per barrel fell today, assumption of falling demand for jet fuel...

    It's sad when it takes 35-$40 to fill up a Dodge Neon. I think when we bought it,it took round 15 to fill it up

    I don't know how people with large trucks and SUV's do it!! Thank God the hubby drives a company vehicle while at work. My stepdad does drywall too,but his company doesn't provide a vehicle or gas money,except once in a while they will cut him a small check and tax it:whip:

    Actually the price might not go up. Busting the terror plot has actually made crude prices go down. Im not expecting to see that at the pump but i am hoping it will atleast keep it from jumping up

    It"s still below $3 here.

    I cringe whenever I fill up my van, it costs around $60 if it's empty. My husbands car gets 32mpg though and he does most of the driving.

    i don't pay attention to regular prices because Tim's company buys fuel at wholesale and employees can fill their vehicles at the same price, and it just comes out of their paycheck the following week. This week, the price there is at about $2.50.

    But I do pay attention to premium because thats what the caddy takes... :alco: as long as we can get a week's worth of fuel out of the caddy, it still is ok. MPG is about 20-25 depending on driving habits & Tim takes a work truck home a few nights a week anyway, so lately fuel has been lasting 2 weeks.

    Save your money, fuzzy. I researched this premium gas thing a few years ago.
    It's not worth the extra $$$ really. I found tons of info that said the same as the below.

    *Yes, I use regular in a car that calls for premium, without any problems at all.*
