We'll soon be filling up. On our October 2011 drive we got gas at prices ranging from $3.25 to $3.57.

All the best.
Good news for when we get home. HESS at DTD was $3.57.

Our area's best price isn't close to yours but it's improving: Wawa down to $3.69; Delta down to $3.61.

All the best.

A news story I read today said they expect gas prices to fall between five and fifteen cents weekly over the next three weeks. Let's hope that is correct.

My Internet is having issues and pages keep timing out as I try and look back, so with that said I am sorry if I am asking something asked a million times before....

We live in the Hudson Valley, NY. We always went down thru Jersey and just took 95. Anyone want to point me in a better direction/way? We are two minutes from the NY state thruway if that helps. Kingston NY to be exact.

Thanks in advance!

WOW! That is awesome and encouraging!
How did you get though VA so fast?
We have heard they give tickets over $1000 and we are always afraid to go over their speed limit (usually stay within 5 miles above the limit).
Are there new radars we need to know about (though they are prohibited in VA...)

I don't see an answer to you yet so I'll give you one I've seen here a number of times. Get yourself over to I-81 in PA and take the inland route -- 81, 77, 26, 95. You pick up 95 near Savannah, GA. I'm not sure what the name of the roads are to get you to 81. We've done the inland route twice and 95 once. Will never go around DC again, so if we do 95 again, we will pick it up further south.

Packing starts soon. Heading out by 10 p.m.

All the best.

While I do have a heavy foot, I am never the fastest one on the road. I try to make sure there are other targets available. I usually go about ten over the speed limit. Hopefully nothing is waiting in the mail when I get home tomorrow night.
