My Grandfather made the idea for charging money for gas to the first Philips gas station, should I blame him?

I dunno...But I just paid $7.49 for 1.5 liters of Listerine.

Same here. Early this morning (1:00am) it was $2.37, later today $2.59.

3.00 per gal by summers end.maybe more
Link Posted: 8/11/2005 2:04:05 PM EDT
Just paid $2.66.

Then I come home, and see an article in the paper about a small town 15 minutes away that has 2 gas stations. Evidently, the two owners got pissed at each other yesterday, so one dropped his prices. The other dropped his in return. Kept going back and forth throughout the night. This morning, they were down to $1.87!!!!!!!!!

Yes, that's still high in my book, but when was the last time you saw that price??? I'm just pissed I missed it!

$2.71 for regular

Well if it's any consolation, Corona beer is selling for $29.95 a case here.
That's correct...2.2 gallons of Mexican swill for the paltry sum of just $29.95.

I've heard it has to hit $4 before it will crunch the economy.

I paid 18 bucks for 750 mililiters of Old Forester last Saturday- "For the Children." We just went wet and a portion is devoted to education. Glad to do my part.

2.54 at the station I usually fill up at this morning, up 4 cents from Sunday. Wonder if it'll be higher when I go past it on the way home?

Paid $2.33 this morning...

My dad and I just got back from a Marine recruiting office, so a Recruiter could demo an airsoft MP5 he's buying, and on the way back we realised gas went from $2.55 to $2.59 at out local Arco.

Not even a half hour!

Be careful, that Listerine will burn the valves on your engine.

Paid $2.94 for super yesterday.

i just went past the gas statin after work and it was up to $2.70 something, up from $2.59 when I went to work.

$35 to fill the fourbanger. First time in 6 years.

If it gets to $6 I will 2-wheel it to work. Georgia winters are pretty mild.
Link Posted: 8/11/2005 3:56:49 PM EDT

For those of you in warmer climates, a motorcycle may be a very good investment. They are very fuel efficient and are selling well because of that even here though we can't use them during our rough winters.

It costs me 7-8 bucks to completely fill an empty tank with premium with my GS750.
Link Posted: 8/11/2005 4:18:29 PM EDT
Diesel is $2.89 here, I can remember 2 years ago paying $.99 a gallon

Link Posted: 8/11/2005 6:21:17 PM EDT

Actually...I've found an alternative source of fuel.

I've converted my vehicle to run on Evian water.
At $1.69 for a mere 20 ounces...it seemed viable.
