Sounds like you need to move out that area fast. Hope all is well for you.

Right around $55 if I fuel up when the gas light comes on. And I'm averaging about 420 miles per tank right now.

I'm used to it... I think premium has only dipped below $4/gal a couple of times since I've had Ladybug, and she's just over 3 yrs old now. It was about $4.50 back in March (refinery problems then, too), dipped to $3.80 in late June, now it's back to around $4.20. I get better mileage in an SS than I do in my SUV, even considering that I don't use premium in the SUV, it's still cheaper to drive the Camaro, so no matter what the prices are, I'm happy!!

Premium (92) goes for about $4.35-$4.45 depending on which part of the island you gas up on. But like the earlier posts, "you want to play you have to pay" and as we say here in Hawaii. "It's the price you pay to live in paradise". I've been here for about 25 years and loving it. One of the best things the Marine Corps did for me was retiring me early from the war.

$4.39 in walnut creek CA.

We've got 3 oil refineries within 30 miles of us... and somehow the middle of the country gets cheaper gas.

Go figure...

In 2005 gas prices were $2.94, which is a 204% increase from$1.44 four years ealier for Bush. National gas prices where $2.10 in 2008 and as of almost exactly 4 years after that average was taken (september) gas has taken a 170% increase under Obama. *It's really all simple math that you, or anybody could have done before they said anything about Obama care. So under bush we see a 250% increase, and under Obama we see a 170% increase.*

Again, I won't give you crap without answering the question, so gas is $3.58 a gallon here and I fill up about once a week.*It's hard to see 300 miles to a tank.
