I'm still trying to figure out how each gas station sets its prices. For example, one place can be $2.23 but the one next to that is $2.29. Further down the road it's $2.44. On the highway the difference is staggering usually between 30-40Ę. It's just mind-boggling.

If you donít live in CA, then nobody should complain about the cost of gas. Our gas prices will always be higher than anyone currently at $2.99 Regular Unleaded.  :BangHead:

One can assume gas prices nearby the freeway entrance and exits tend to be a bit more costly because motorists are more likely go there whenever they need to pump gas. Those locations are more visible and convenient to head to first. They donít have to drive too far to locate a gas station.

I notice gas prices a lot more now than in the past. I am not sure of the reason that gas station around me seems to drop and raise the prices every other day. I drive a lot less now than in the past and it makes me feel good due to environmental concerns and also budget wise.

Well the cheap gas is down to levels I haven't seen in ten years. Premium gas is too much for me. $2/gal for 89 octane and then I dump fuel injector cleaner and gas treatment in there. The car runs better on 89 octane with my additives than it does on 93 octane with nothing added. It comes out way cheaper in the long run. I can pay 6 bucks for a bottle of mystery oil and gas and it last 2 months.

I just filled up today and paid $1.99 that is the lowest it has been in awhile around here & I am happy about it. I know it will not last long though.

I rarely use my vehicle other than for work purposes. In fact, I only fill my tank once per week. However, that does not change the fact that gasoline prices are pretty high...and I use regular gasoline.

They don't matter to me. I wouldn't like having to drive all the way anywhere. I would park a car farther away and walk the rest of the way when I would feel energetic enough and the weather is nice. Many people are too lazy to consider that, and that bothers me because that can mean more pollution and not enough exercise.

Gas prices always go up in the summer time. They are not bad right now but they have gone several times over the last few weeks. I hope they don't go up much more. When gas prices begin to steadily rise then all other prices start to rise. :rose: :rainbow: :peace: :wave:

Still too high.  Gas prices need to go down more.

Ours recently went up by 5 cents, but is still under $2.50 a gallon for regular, so I'm OK with that. Do NOT want to see it go to almost $4 again like it did a few years ago. That was way too high!

That's one reason I would prefer to park a car farther away from where I go instead of anywhere around the place.
