I'm curious, since gas is high (and will apparently stay that way), what is the current price of gas where you live?

I just bought gas (regular unleaded) in Connersville for $1.74/gallon.

$2.29 for premium in the South Bay, SF is probably more. I guess that'd be $2.09 for regular.

$2.10 for premium. I guess reg. is about $1.95 .

Where are all those people who were protesting on the streets before the war with banners saying we were only going to war for Iraq's oil? For some reason I don't see those people around anymore. :unimpressed:

High, but when I see the rest of the prices, I'm thankful.....

My METRA pass is $89.15 per month. I haven't bought gas since the last time I drove to Indy (which was for the 2/8/2004 game vs. Miami.)

IOW, I have no idea. But I guess I'm in for a shock next week when I drive down for the Jersey game. :o

Why do you use the METRA so much? To get to work?

Yep. I buy the monthly pass to get between The Loop and Elmhurst. Actually, I get it on pre-tax dollars now, so I don't remember the actual payroll deduction amount but its more like $55.

Northwest Station is only four blocks from my office, so I rarely use the CTA. I'm more likely to just hop in a cab because I can never remember the bus routes oustide of the one we took to the get to the United Center.

You bleedgin lucky so and so SODS!

what the F are you complaining about gas prices?

Ok i can remember when i live in OK it was like $ 1.10 a gallon but still ...

Here (London UK) price is 0.86 a litre i.e. 3,20 a gallon i.e. $ 6.00 a gallon

Combine that with ciggies at 5.00 a pack of 20 ( $ 9.50) ad you get an idea of the cost of living here :)

(and yes I still smoke way to mch as in 2+ packs a day)

It certainly doesn't make me happy. Prices have DOUBLED in the last four years. That's insane.

At this rate, gas will be around $7 a gallon by 2012. Someone needs to put a stop to this, one way or the other.

Look at thre other thread I bumped though in the policics forum - gas prices have held steady since Katrina - that is what caused it basically to go from $2.00 to $3.00

And now it's $3.50 and rising. And there are no natural disasters or major oil spills to account for it this time.

Yes, but the price of oil is off the charts and it is spring - those two huge factors alone are causing this

Nope just impending war in Venezuela (at least that's what Kebgoy said is to blame).

$3.09 here. It went over $3.00 for the first time city wide last week. Don't forget that China is adding thousands of new drivers every week. They have to get gas too.

the DC/MD is a total mixed bag. some places in the city can get as high as $3.40-3.50/gallon but I just paid $3.11 in Laurel, MD this weekend. one big beauty of living in DC is public transportation.

Premium grade in Indy $3.69/gal. I looked....I spent over $540 on gas last month for my Caddie. Wonder why realtors charge so much?

What happend to the Windfall Profits Tax that was imposed on the oil companies back in the '70's? If it was repealed then that is the ONLY tax that has ever been repealed AFAIK.
