It's between $2.65 and $2.80 here on the Missouri/Kansas border, but we usually have some of the least expensive gas in the country.

Edit: o.O to hybridthinker beneath. I grew up in Omaha. Millard North HS class of '95. :)

$3.01 - $3.19 here in Omaha, NE. But I found a station that still hasn't updated their pricing due to the raise in the gas base price (jumped $.47 today) and it was $2.79. I'm positive we'll see probably $3.30-$3.50 by Labor Day.

Heh. Another Michiganian. I'm a little more north I'd guess and it is pretty consitant at 2.99. I passed a station at 2.75 and teh line was around the block. I read an article dealing with michigan specific and it showed a station in Garden City at 3.92.

How the hell can one station be at 2.75 and anothe be at 3.92 and that -not- be price gouging?

Great Northwest (Oregon):

Regular starts at $2.79(9/10), and goes up in price by ten cents a grade. Drove from Eugene to Portland and back this weekend, and was regretting how much it ran me. That, and I made sure to use the Max (Train through the Portland Metro area) for Red and I getting through town.

That being said, why do they almost always end in a nine, and have the 9/10 after it? Seems to be the typical 'fool the consumer, and charge them more then they realize' tactic.

wow, that's still pretty cheap, comparatively at least.

In Canuckistan up here, if we used gallons, we'd be paying approximately $3.93 per gallon (1.04/litre).

I saw $3.09 yesterday on the way home from work, but that's at a gas station along the interstate. The ones I usually fill up at are a bit cheaper.

Methinks its time to sell my car...

It's been going at random for some reason down here. It went from 1.02/litre two nights ago, to 0.93/litre, to 1.03/litre today.

Or I might've lost track of time. I just remember it going a bit cheap recently. Expensive gas, heh. (GTA of Ontario, btw. <.<)

Flint Michigan: There's one gas station around here that's notorious for price gouging and they went up to 4.25/gallon for a while... someone must have placed a call to someone important, because last night it was down to 2.99/gallon.
On 9/11 the same station raised thier prices to 3.45/gallon for about 3 hours (5-8pm of course)before they brought them back down..... I don't do business with them.

Haha, cool. :D Well, the last thing to expect in downtown Toronto is parking, or someone who'll be willing to give you a parking spot. <.<;

Today, it has reached a whooping $1.363/litre. Guess that boycott against gas didn't work after all.

Since I've been laid up with a bum knee, I haven't been out to look at prices this weekend, but last week, our prices spiked anywhere from $3.20 to $5.99 a gallon, forcing our governor to sign a bill cracking down on price gouging.

I'm in Atlanta. ^^;

Well, I just spent 2 weeks in Toronto. Here around Saskatoon it's about 1.20/litre.

On another side note, why do Torontonians gotta be so mean! The Go Transit lady was mean, the guy trying to show my wife how to get to the CN tower was mean(she already knew and he was starting to piss her off).

But I did almost everything I wanted to do. I got to go to the Pizza Pizza that was on Half Baked. I got to see the adult theatre where PeeWee Herman was arrested. I didn't get to see a hooker though. And of course.. I went to the Ontario Science Center. So it was a good trip.

Granby area. Yeah, the 4.29 probably was for 87, but some places only have 89, 91 and 93. There is a Mobil near me that is always about 30 cents higher than any where else, for no reason.
