Smile How much is gas where you live?

I filled my tank up today for $1.879 at Sams Club. It is 2 cents higher at most other stations around the Tulsa area.

In Holland I pay 1.40 euro for 1 liter. That would be 1.76 in dollars and for a gallon it would bring you to US 6.20... Still feel the need to complain???

I Love Aruba Re: How much is gas where you live?

Here in Hatfield, PA it was $2.37/$2.57

Isn't it just unbelievable how, before an election, the gas mysteriously goes down in price??

bob, a liter is a little more than a quart so there are approximately 4 liters in a gallon. makes those prices very high, doesn't it?

So hold youre pants, thats 6.28 dollars a gallon over here . And a barrel of oil is the same price everywhere, it's all taxes overhere. So, if we would have the same prices as you guys in the states, i would go to Aruba twice in a year

Sherry- For every $100.00 you spend at Martin's, they give you .10 off a gallon of gas. And they put specials where if you buy 8 of certain items you might get an additional .20 off. The points accumulate for a certain time period and then they must be used by a certain time period. Martin's tabulates everything on your grocery receipt along with your bonus points. I had enough bonus points accumulated during a certain time period to get a "free" turkey(I know that this isn't related to the gas).

It dropped below $2 a gallon at many stations here in FL today. Sam's Club may be lower but it is 10 miles away.
I remember that we paid $4.03 around the July 4th holiday.
I also remember than I paid $3.55 on October 5th -- the day we returned from Aruba.
I have a bookmark on an MSN website that tracks gas prices.
According to them, it is still around $2.20 a gallon in upstate NY (our old home area of Albany).
We made a trip to Branson, MO last week and saw gas as low as $1.78 en route.

For the Europeans who answered, I am wondering if their price has gone up and down in recent months.

On the Arubalife website, I saw that gas went down significantly from October to November. Still high in Aruba at something like $4.02 a gallon, but better than over $5.25 a gallon in late September.

In east central Florida, we are at $1.81 a gallon (down from $4.03...cheapest on July 4th week). Our county has an extra gas tax, so I suspect it is cheaper in Orlando (about 75 miles away).

Tuesday/Wednesday of last week I drove from Birmingham, AL to Orlando (then to Leesburg, FL on Thursday and back to Birmingham on Sunday). Regular gas in Birmingham at the start of the trip was $1.859/gal. It was around $1.729 in Dothan, AL. It was anywhere from $1.85 to $1.92 pretty much everywhere I noticed while in Florida. I did see $1.749 in The Villages so I filled up there!

Default Re: How much is gas where you live?

Lesa,

On November 8th, we passed through Birmingham on our way to Branson, MO. Gas was cheapest in selected places in Missouri...as low as $1.78. When we left Florida, gas was still $2.11 in our area. We stayed in Jasper, AL...going and coming. We came back on 11/15.
I admit I don't understand the logic of gas prices (if there is any). I think the prices in central Florida are some of the best in the state (from our travels). South Florida (Fort Lauderdale and Miami) always seems higher. Jacksonville is higher. St. Augustine is sometimes lower. If you get off I-95 in the need of gas in our area, you will pay 15-20 cents more per gallon (as compared to where the residents fill up).
Whatever the prices, I suppose we should enjoy. If the economy EVER recovers, I'm am convinced the price will ROCKET up again.

my daughter swears by costco as the bargain place for gas. i belong but the closest costco to me is 20 miles away. it sort of defeats the purpose, lol.
