$3.99 in NW Ohio!
I got lucky and filled up Monday for $3.51 by my parents when picking up my children which was good because it was already $3.99 out by where I live.

Around here, the cheaper places (Wal Mart, Race Trac, etc.) are about $3.50. The upper cap of the more expensive stations is about $3.75.

It's $3.99 here in Michigan today. Thank goodness we traded in our gas guzzler for a diesel Jetta.

I just drove by the gas station, it's up to $4.09.

Imagine how much disposable income americans would have to spend on other things if gas was back to $1.75 a gallon. In my house alone we would have an additional $300-$350 a month to spend on other things, that's $4000 a year give or take. We are just one household, imagine the change in the economy if they would just lower the price of gas.

Any car can still have some gas in the tank. Some people will believe anything.

Sure, it costs the same, but I think you miss the point. How far can you go? At 15 mpg in a Hummer, that 5.5 gallons of gas I bought yesterday would take me 81 miles, or about one days worth for me. OTOH, the Prius took me 295 miles on that same 5.5 gallons of gas. Still think it doesn't make a difference? If it doesn't to you, then by all means, drive a hummer and complain about gas prices all you want. I won't have much sympathy.

It makes a huge difference to me. I look at the price per mile. In the hummer, the price per mile at 4.00 a gallon (for easy math) is about 27 cents per mile. In the Prius, at 50 mpg (less than I routinely get), it costs 8 cents per mile. I think that's a difference worth talking about.

Some gas stations are closed due to no supply.

We just moved back to the US and bought two cars in the past week. Today, in Southern California, I paid $4.41 for regular and $4.61 for premium. That was the cheapest station we saw - most were closer to $4.70/$4.90.

There are a lot of supply issues going on in CA at the moment (and we are still using the summer blend), explaining the ridiculously high prices.

For some reason gas has been plummeting here in Missouri. It has gone from 3.79 to 3.37 in 2-3 weeks. I have no idea what is behind the sudden drop especially when others are saying their gas is going up

Our gas prices have stayed pretty steady the last month or so, right around $3.89.

Gas prices here are averaging about $4.05/gallon. I did see on the news last night that somewhere in California there was a gas station at $5.69/gallon for regular.

3.49 here in Southwest Ohio today! I used Kroger rewards and got 0.10 off! It's really sad when you get excited about $3.39 a gallon!
