We recently moved from Tennessee to South Carolina. Gas taxes are lower in SC which means you can easily find 87 grade for $3.00. But the first annual cost of tags for my three vehicles & 02 Safari in SC was $1400 vs annual tag cost in TN of less than $250. I think SC calls it a personal property tax. I don't know how the tax is calculated. The tax on my 07 Mazda was lower than my 02 Safari. 2012 Chevy 2500 won the prize at close to $550 in tax for tags.

I would prefer to pay $3.30 for gas than to pay $1400 for tags... & sales tax, & income tax....

We were in SC a bit ago and saw a sign over a gas pump that said " if we don't know you please pay before you pump".

Waze

There's a cool little free social app called Waze that gives you up-to-date lowest gas prices locally across the country. Also current updates on road conditions, speed traps, etc. I'm just starting to check it out using an iPad - don't know if there's an Android version. A few cents a gallon adds up when your TV gets 10MPG.

I wonder, has anybody with a diesel looked into a bio-diesel conversion? There's a guy here in Toronto who's basically running his bus on the grease that the restaurants pay to have removed.

I've never done this myself, but I am seriously leaning towards a diesel for my next vehicle. Up here in Canada the economics make sense anyway, but with bio-diesel that might get even better...

Yes, there's an Android version - Waze is owned by google these days. Find it in the Play store.

I use it all the time, really excellent little app.

We are seeing prices for $2.99 around North Houston. My wife paid $2.89 with a Kroger card!

That is 9/10 of a gallon.

Thanks to govmnt and lobbyists fooling the public with less than a gallon to have the prices lower.

Even the news can't get it straight, reporting gallons instead of 9/10ths.

More like you big government has you trained well.

Actually would have paid more line 2.541 for the gas depending on which state the gas was purchased in (Avg gas tax is 54.8 cents). 18.3 cents of that goes to fund our dysfunctional federal government no matter where you live.

I agree that the price at the pump feels pretty crummy despite the largest gains in US production in over 30 years. This is largely due to the global nature of the product which is facilitated by its relative ease of transport. Conversely US Natural Gas (which is harder to transport) prices have plummeted due to the local supply glut.

Depressed Natural Gas prices have resulted in an average savings of ~$800/year per household in heating and electricity cost since price spikes in 2005-7.

There is a glut of gasoline and oil in our country and has been for the last few years.As for natural gas there is so much of it that they have run out of places to store it and are burning it off in some cases.I do not burn natural gas personally nor does our utility provider so I do not reap your quoted benefits.
Tax on gasoline has been in place for as long as I can remember even when gas was 12 cents a gallon the percentage has not changed much but with the high price of gasoline the amounts collected has.

Dated 2012 (2013 numbers should be higher)
For the first time since 1949, the United States exported more gasoline, heating oil and diesel fuel last year than it imported, the Energy Department reported today.Bloomberg writes that to offset weak U.S. demand, refiners exported 439,000 barrels a day more than were imported the year before. In 2010, daily imports averaged 269,000 barrels, according to the Petroleum Supply Monthly report.
Imports of crude oil and related products fell 11% last year, reaching a level not seen since 1995.

"cheap" gas

2.85 a gallon for 87, 3.05 for 93 at Sams & Murphy for the last month. Nothing like having a gas war w. yourself! We do give away our age when recalling gas for 0.23 prior to the first OPEC embargo.

Gasoline has increased greatly in price. If you just adjust for inflation, $0.23 in 1972 is equal to $1.25 today.
