    $3.08 - Little Al's - Eufala, AL

    My guess is the only wayAl is able to charge so little is because he does not waste money on light bulbs and cleaning supplies for the restrooms.

    Gross fluff. I wont use a gas station bathroom for any reason. Ill find a McDonalds. Gonna fill up today for $2.98 using my $0.10 discount at Krogers. Been a LONG time since Ive paid under $3. Gotta love it. I figure all the oil companies tanks are full, and they dont have anywhere to store it anymore. If I remember right, thats what happened the last time they screwed us with $4/gal gas. Then after several months, the price dropped like a rock.

    Typically I will try to avoid restrooms in gas stations but as a passenger, sometimes options are limited ;)

    I'll also add that over the years I have been restrooms which looked just as bad as Little Al's and had golden arches on their doors. ;)

    Local pricing here seen at 3.36 at 2 stations and 3.41 at another this afternoon.

    Amazed at how many people accept this is "reduced prices" or "low prices". gas is still 40-50% higher than it should be.

    I just saw a TV piece that inventories are an near-record high for the past 6 years and demand at a near-record low...yet here we are at ridiculously high gas prices still. I still remember how to spell gouging, but that word has apparently been removed from the Washington DV lexicon.

    Well, around here, the golden arch restrooms are spotless, since the employees hang out there to text on their cell phones :)

    $3.45.9! Where did John Denver buy his underground tank?

    A couple of months ago, I filled up at a no-name station and, according to their pump, my 27 gallon tank took 29.4 gallons. FWIW, there was no Weights and Measures certification sticker on it. I was tempted to report them to that state's Office of the Attorney General but never got around to it.

    Three years ago Safeway's posted price was $2.759. As you can see below it is now $4.139. When adjusted for the fact that the state sales tax rate was 20% higher in 2009 while the local sales tax rate is a bit higher in 2012, that is about a $1.40 or 50% increase. It appears that increase is not going away.

    Paid 3.02 at Little Al's in Eufaula, GA on Sunday plus a free goodie bag of candy for the kids.

    However, 3.22 was the best price I saw back here in Peachtree City on Sunday.

    I saw $3.219 at a few stations this morning. Exception, rather than the rule. Most other stations were several cents higher.

    We're now down to $3.25 at our lowest price stations. If the price at the pump crosses a magic threshold the week before the election, like $3.00 a gallon, that could be decisive in an election when the two candidate's platforms are, "more of the same" and, "more of the same"
