(mind you, $25 is a little less than 1/2 a tank for me. IDK why I never fill up completely.....)
Oh and also, most gas stations now are pre-authorizing credit and debit cards used for pay at the pump for $75 OR MORE!!!!!!! And you get charged for your purchase on top of that.... eventhough the $75 is never "charged" to your account (it's just used to see if you have an available balance before the actual transaction), it will sit pending in your account for about a WEEK!!!!! So if you have to fill up every few days like me, you can have like $225 that you can't access from your account because its "pending" ON TOP OF what you actually bought.....
I really should start paying with cash, but I really don't feel comfortable with carrying around that much cash with me for how often I'm needing to fill up...
Gas prices here are $3.99 at most gas pumps. I've seen it as high as $4.10 around the highway though. Looking through this thread though has made me thankful for the "low" price I'm paying for gas. (wow, I never thought I would be happy to "only" be paying $3.99 a gallon for gas)

When you buy a car in CT, not only do you pay sales tax, licensing and title fees, but a car in CT is considered a "luxury", so we are also sent a tax bill every year based on how much THEY think your car is worth. That on top of the 7% gas tax, soon to be 7.5% is just too much.
Our wonderful (not) Governor has decided to hold off raising the gas tax for the summer. Believe me, it doesn't put a DENT in helping the CT residents out.
So, that's why I'm stuck home in my little apartment on my computer watching tv, reading. My car, after putting $25 worth of gas in it, is sitting in the parking lot going nowhere, doing nothing.
Something's gotta give. People can't take much more. I've been reading stories about fights at the gas pumps, cutting in lines, etc. It's getting ugly.

DO NOT BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE!!
And what ever happened to the development of alternate fuels that was going to save us back in the 70's? In case no one noticed, those promises were made over 35 years ago!!!!

6/14/08 - $4.69 a gallon
I'm not sure of the price exactly today, but Bruce filled my tank and said it was $60! I have a VW Jetta. It used to take less than $20 to fill the tank. CRAZY!!!
Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.
Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

I saw gas today in the town next to mine for 3.79. I wasn't driving or I definitely would have filled up.
Here in NZ at our local supermarket they sell petrol, from time to time if you purchase over 15 dollars of produce you get 15c a litre off your petrol ,it sure helps out a lot, and we always spend that much,usually they only give you like 4cent or 6cents off a litre,so it is a good promotion at the moment, we are really hurting down under,and as you all say it is only going to get worse, funny thing is our groceries last week were the cheapest we have had in a long time, i guess we did not need that much, this week they were expensive again,it seems it is never going to end does it?
Have fun at the Rainbow Bridge,Zara,Rusty, Juliette ,Romeo,sweet Tessa,wee stray and Harvey you all will never be forgotten.

$4.57 for self-serve unleaded in San Francisco
It has finally hit $4.00 less than 15 miles away from our town, so I am sure ours will rise sooner than we would like. Mum finally broke down and bought a car. It gets an average of 27-30 MPG, so it is a big improvement from what her 2004 GMC Enjoy XUV gets. :]
The lowest in Columbia, SC is now $3.739 a gallon. Average is $3.899.
I went to Los Angeles last weekend, out in the middle of nowhere on the way I paid $4.95!
don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....
I have been frosted!
