$2.35 today!   Gotta love it. 

A gas station in Ft. Worth is selling gas at $1.94!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Too bad I'm 30 miles away otherwise I'd go over there and fill up!  I filled up this morning at $2.33.

Assuming your car holds more than 10 gallons and you get about 30 miles per gallon, it would be worth your while to go get that $1.94.................if you don't mind the time wasted.   ;-()

I thought about that.  I have a Toyota Camry which gets great mileage...but it'll just be my luck that when I get over there, they'll be out of gas! :rofl_2:

Or when you get there the line is super long.   :(

Or even worse still when you get there you find one computer has gone down which in turn shuts the whole garrage down  ..-) I've seen that happen to a few stations over here  :\

Just commenting really!  I have filled my tank for a month or so trying to get the lowest price and the price just keeps going lower!   I, of course, know this is a great issue to have to deal with.   ;-()

Just crossing $2.50 here. The midwest is still the place to be. Many areas are under $2 already.
Oh, except you suckers in Chicago, some of whom are still paying over $3.   :rofl_2:

I saw $2.06 today.  Maybe, we'll get below that $2 mark in the upcoming week.

If I convert ours to the $ I'd just like to see some $5.50 per gallon  ..-) Right now we've come down to about $6.20. The last month or 2 it has at least come down over a £1 per gallon/$1.60, but still its way too high  :mad1:

Some places in Europe like here in Britain, France, Finland etc have always had much hiher prices compared to a lot of the world and over the last 5-6 years its really increased and when it went above the £1 it was absolutely shocking and it kept going to about £1.25 which per gallon and in $ was about $8 depending on the exchange rate. The economies and financial situation has been able to handle it much more in some European places and a large sum of that is tax put on by our ever so kind Government as they know its something we all need and we will pay it whatever. Also they hoped at one stage we'd all stop using our cars and get public transport, but thats usually a disaster as well.
