    $3.89 in N. Ca (Yreka to be exact.) this morning. About 20 cents more where we live.

    I'm in LA County. $3.45 for gas at Costco; $4.29 for gas at a Mobil station near me. I can't believe there are cars there getting gas. The other stations in town are from $3.69 to $3.79.

    $3.00/gal barrier broken in Suburban Maryland, half way between Washington DC and Baltimore. $2.99 at three station including two brand name, and $2.95 at one independent, cash-price.

    Still about $3.10/gal when you get right up to the edge of the major cities, however.

    It's nice to see the gas prices go down. :smoking: :up:

    It's not so nice to see the stock market plummet the way it has the past month or so. :blackeye: :down:

    Today is especially bad.
    I closed my eyes and added shares to some I already had in my portfolio.
    Mercy, what a roller coaster ride today for sure.
    Good luck to everyone.

    Edit / Add: Wow, Netflix just dropped a ton. It was $448 and now $334.

    Paid $2.85.9 at an Exxon in Laurel, MD, with $289.9 available at three nearby stations.

    Funny thing about Exxon stations, as I may have remarked a few years ago in this thread or elsewhere. In my market, they have all the best real estate and almost always have the highest prices, which is a viable niche in a congested area with above average income, but some other regions of the country, people have reported that they are often the lowest priced vendor. It seems like they are using their own stations for strategic evening out of supply. Someone once told me that even with privately owned Exxon stations, the station owner has no say whatsoever in the pump price. Basically, he makes per gallon whatever Exxon decides he makes in exchange for benefiting from their brand and from store sales, which is where the real gas station profit is these days.

    Interesting observation about Exxon. Exxon pulled out of Colorado years ago so I don't know how valid the comparison is but when they were here their locations didn't seem any better than anybody else and their prices were competitive.

    The only prices below $3.00 in my area are Sam's Club and Costco but it is getting close. Outside of those two about half the stations are $3.0x and the other half are $3.1x with only one or two above that.

    I saw a TV report this morning for a local LA station selling regular gas for $3.35 today, $3.15 if you got a car wash with the gas.
    That Mobil station near me is still at $4.29, though.

    Every place around me has finally dropped below $3. Some as low as $2.95. Will check out Sam's in Charleston today.

    Local Mobil station finally dropped to $4.19 from $4.29 yesterday. Still 50 cents or more than stations about five blocks away.
