I saw it for $3.45 at the place near my home which is usually one of the cheaper places that I drive past daily.  I have a 1/4 of a tank too so I will be filling up on that expensive gas tomorrow or Friday.  Bummer!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Today, the Euro peaked to an all-time high > 1.50 against the USD. Expect gas prices to follow suit.

Hoooly crap criers! The Euro is now 1.54 against the USD.

 1.5577 !!!!  :eek:

Whilst riding the train this am, I happened to catch the gas price in downtown Chicago just outside the Loop.

$3.55

Get used to it. In 6 months, my guess is you will be wishing for $3.45/gal. :\

Right I want to compare our prices to what you guys are paying, as our prices are continuously rising and getting ridiculous and so expensive. The roughly $3.30 you are paying is that for a litre? or gallon? or some other type of measurement?

I believe you guys are paying much more than we are. At least that's what I heard. The difficulty is you have to make two convertions to compare. We pay dollars for gallons, and you pay pounds, or euros for liters.
I paid 40 pesos/liter in the Philippines. At 38 pesos to the dollar that comes to almost a dollar per liter. One gallon=3.78541178 liters. So 40 pesos times 3.79 divided by 38 (pesos/dollar) equals $3.99/gallon.

Right now, I'm paying about $3.35 per gallon.  I feel so sorry for the people driving gas guzzling vehicles like Hummers.  They should change the miles per gallon into gallons per mile on those cars.

I don't feel sorry for them at all.  :whistling:

So if you're paying per gallon then there's 3.78 litres in a gallon and we pay about £1.05 per litre so £1.05 times 3.78 = £3.97.
So per gallon we pay £3.97

So to get that into $ if we times £3.97 by the conversion rate on the exchange right now of $1.92 to a £ we get $7.62

So per gallon we pay $7.62

Jesus Christ give me that $3.50 odd any day of the week!!

Now some of you guys will be looking at your rise in prices and thinking 'Hey these prices aren't too bad after all, with our prices being over double yours. Your prices would be like us over here paying 47p a litre, instead of 105p :swoon:
