GAS PRICES!

Back up to $3.00 a gallon here in Atlanta..Not only do I have to pay Christmas bills but I have to put up with a $45.00+ gas bill every week. I have a 36 mile commute to work one way and I usually run through a tank of gas in less than a week...SO I have to REALLY watch my 'jack rabbit' take offs and just stay in the slow lane, keeping her to around 60 mph...That way i might can stretch it a full week...

Filled the Camaro up today and IIRC it was $3.29 for 93 Octane. When gas prices go up this high, it really sucks. I can't wait for it to go back down to $2.50ish.

You need to get the wife to work a 2nd job so you don't have to worry about the price of gas.

Gas here in Quebec

Just made the conversion, it would be like 4.80$ per gallon around here.

2LT-rs is listed around $39.000.00 and 2ss Rs $49,000$.

we have been at 3.29-3.33 for the longest time in my area for 93..

kind funny when 87 up to 3.09. the 93 stayed the same probably because less demand for it.. also theres a gas station 4 miles from all of the 3.09 prices that is 2.99 shell

Don't hold your breath. If they decide that the economy is back on track get ready for them to head to around $5.00 per gallon. They were headed there before the economy went south ,but they knew if they kept it high they would have really crashed the whole thing. This is one of the reasons the economy will yoyo for many's years to come. They want gas prices to be much higher than they are now ,but the world's economy's can't handle it.

I find it interesting that people driving a new car are alarmed and concerned by the gas prices that have been floating around the same median for the past few years.

Sorry to tell you but it is not going back to 2.50. They are expecting 3.75 for regular before March and it will rise from there thru the summer. OPEC does not want to up production and the tree huggers will not let us drill on our own resources or build refineries.

China and Indias demand are expected to grow 40% each with the world economies rebounding.
