Had to fill up today, and paid $3.79 at Costco. Spent $20 (yup, $20) to fill up my car. Love my Prius.

I drive so little that it really shouldn't bother me. There's virtually no impact on our budget - even a dollar a gallon difference only adds $250 to our yearly gas costs. But it still irks me for whatever reason.
That's cheap. We are a suburb of Chicago and we average around 4.19. Seen some at 4.09 and some at 4.29. It bounces around.

$4.10 a gallon in Bangor, ME. Are you kidding me? We have to drive everywhere up here! Up in the County (Aroostook) or Downeast, people will drive an hour just to get to the grocery store.

I don't get this kind of reasoning. If you're only buying 5 gallons it cost the same whether you are driving an economy car or a Hummer. It's like that commercial for Toyota that says "luckily she was driving a Corolla so she could get to the next gas station." All that means is there was still some gas in the tank. Any car can still have some gas in the tank. Some people will believe anything.

gas is still $3.59-$3.62 in the town where i work, but, outside of town, where i live, i was able to get gas this morning for $3.55. DH works in another town, and he said he filled up his car yesterday on his way home from work for $3.43. as sad as it is, i was a little jealous.

Their pipelines burst. And you guys up in the midwest and Northeast get the bill for their incompetence? Now the Gulf refinery shut down for the hurricane, that was the wise thing to do. Can't do much about hurricanes.
