    Default How much is gasoline in your area?

    I went into Kansas City today, not the best neighborhood but it was for obedience training for Snickers, [and he was good!] I noticed a gas station on Troost, where the gas was $3.18! In my neighborhood at the mo, it is selling for $2.98. What is it where you live?

    3.04 for regular in Richmond, about 3.20 on the western side of the state. Haven't been to Roanoke lately, it may be a little cheaper there.
    Diesel on the other hand is anywhere from 3.75-3.95 either side of the state

    I converted Canadian price (dollars/litre) into American (dollars/gallon):

    $4.89 per gallon in interior BC.

    $3.55 this afternoon at the cheap station. I paid $3.89 when I filled up a few weeks ago. I was thrilled to see $3.55. Now I just feel ripped off when I see you guys whining about prices under $3!

    I think it's around 4 bucks a gallon on the high 3.80s-90s.

    Just paid $3.31/ gallon in northern MD today. The cheapest it has been around here in a while. Now if only diesel could be going down too instead of up...sigh...

    $3.55-$3.59 today in the far western Chicago suburbs (we're usually about $.30-$.40 cheaper than closer to the city.
    It's not about the color of the ribbon but the quality of the ride. Having said that, I'd like the blue one please!

    I wasn't whining, well, maybe I was! It just got me thinking about what it cost everywhere else. My point was that there was twenty cents difference about twenty miles from my home.

    Gasoline regular is about 3.22 here; it's anywhere from 2.94 to 3.05 thirty miles away (and in the Memphis Mississippi suburbs). Diesel, on the other hand, was 3.55 when I filled up on Wednesday; but it's 3.79 or higher in the places where gasoline is cheaper.

    $3.30ish for regular, $4.00 for diesel. I also happen to live in one of the biggest oil producing counties in the country. You would think that it would be cheaper here, but no.

    Portland Oregon area: $3.39 seems the average, bit more due to higher taxes in WA. The cheapest gas in a year....diesel is about .50 more/gal

    This is NOT fair! The cheapest cheapest I've seen is $3.49 and I just drove from northern CA to Vegas to LA and back. This is WAY down from about six weeks agi when the refineries set up another scam shortage and it went up 20 cents a DAY and was about $4.70.

    We pay WAY more than the rest of the country!
