Jumped from $3.73 to $4.05 for 87. $4.25 for 93. Central Ohio. I would just like to thank our "Great" leader in DC.

You all pump premium? I pump 87 unleaded on my 1LT V6 LOL. IN seattle it's about 3.99-4.15$ for unleaded 87. I'm a sales rep so and I cover the entire PNW, I drive a lot it's my only car. I'm just glad that my gas is covered by the company.

This is kind of a cool photo op that was nearly 30 years in the making:

In April of 1979, I took a picture of my then-new-to-me 71 Olds 442 at my place of employ, the local Amoco station on I-55 in southern Illinois.

Well, on July 02, 2008, 29 years later, we we on our way home back from visiting my dad. So I figured, what the hell, let me sorta recreate it with an updated look. Who knew back in 1979 I would be returning for gas at the place I worked as I was getting out of high school?

I found it very interesting that we went by this very gas station last week when I was up there visiting in IL and the gas sign said 3.709 for regular.

That's like drug prices. Never heard anyone paying that high for gas.

Great picture thanks for posting. Each time we have a war or a hurricane they raise the prices up.

I paid $3.81 yesterday for 87 just outside Raleigh, NC. They jumped about .20 with Issac. I drive mine daily 25mi each way for work so it gets filled up weekly.

It could be worse, I could be stuck with an SUV. We have a 95 Bronco that I drove to work a couple of days last week. $50 only gave me half a tank which was gone by the end of the second day.
