    We seem to have wild shifts here too ... swinging 30c per gallon apparently depending on which way the wind blows. The lowest within a few miles of me today is $3.24 ... but there are stations with posted prices of $3.45. Guess where I'll fill up (thanks GasBuddy).

    I am getting pissed off with these stations that limit you to $75 per transaction on a credit card/debit card. There is NO WAY to fill the tank for $75.

    Per gallon or did you drive across the street from another gas station? :D

    I paid $3.299 today. I only have a 17 gallon tank so it would take $4.40 gas to break the $75 credit card limit (where enforced). Stations accepting credit cards for more than the limit are taking a risk ... especially with non-PIN, non-signature transactions. Stolen credit cards and credit card information are often used at non-PIN, non-signature locations. There is a lot of stolen card/stolen card information use out there.

    I have a 26 gallon tank (diesel) and fill up every 600 miles (I get 25 mpg), so thats 24 gallons at the current price of $3.799 = $91.18

    Thank heavens for a smaller tank and 30 mpg. Still knocks a big hole in a $75 bill......

    Jumped $.10 in a few days, up to $4.54 here on Hawaii Island. Looks like we're headed for a +$5.00 summer. Yippee.

    Safeway gives 3¢ off with its club card which costs nothing. You get can 10¢ off if you've purchased at least $50 in groceries recently and that is cumulative, so I have gotten $1.00 per gallon off.

    Gas prices in the Charlotte area are currently ranging from $3.48 to $3.82 a gallon, with most stations charging between $3.68 and $3.74
    People who live close to the SC state line buy their gas in SC for a savings of at least 20 cents a gallon.

    Paid $3.399 for real gas at the Douglas & SE 29th St. OnCue Express in Midwest City.
    Ethanol-laced gas was going for $3.299 at the same location.
    Cheapest in the area according oklahomacitygasprices.com is $3.18 at some of the 7-Elevens.

    Questions are a burden for others, and answers a prison for oneself.
