    Continuing to drop here in suburban Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. Now $3.399, which is about 30 cents below the price plateau of a few months ago. Good for me because my gas milage is horrible,

    I just bought a low milage, 2000 Toyota Corolla and got 34 MPG driving 500+ highway miles from New Hampshire to Washington, DC, so I no longer care what gas costs.

    Safeway gives 3¢ off per gallon 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.

    I agree on it not lasting, in my area the best price went from $3.35 to 3.49 in the past couple weeks, and a lot of stations are in the 3.59 neighborhood

    I get 30mpg (+/- 1 or 2 depending on conditions) and I very much DO care what gas costs (60 mile round trip commute). Over the past year I've averaged $200/mo on gas. That's something I'll be factoring in if this car will last until the tesla "Gen III" car starts being built in a few years.

    The cheaper stations are still $3.79 but I have seen several stations at $3.9x which means mid grade and premium are both over $4.00

    I saw something interesting this morning, for the first time in a very long time diesel was cheaper than gasoline. $3.79 for gas. $3.69 for diesel Normally around here diesel is .15 - .20 more than gas

    Diesel has been running at around the same price as regular in our area this month. It is quite a change.
