Yep silvertwinkie I know what you mean about 1981 versus today. It's just interesting to see the comparison.

We went past a gas station tonight to get to one we frequent and gas at the second one was 13 cents a liter more. We turned right around and headed back to the other and as we were pulling in they were putting the higher price up on the sign.

Of course I was the one who told my wife to go to the second gas station so guess who got the old "we shoulda stopped when I wanted to" look .

It's like playing the lotto right now when going for gas.

Western station in Idaho Springs Colorado yesterday.
$2.99 reg.
$2.19 E-85
$3.79 Diesel

The station just added E-85 within the last 2 weeks. I haven't had the chance to use it enough to give a good comparison for fuel economy, but with a savings of 80 cents I think I'm sticking to this station as much as possible. Seems like most fuel in the area was around $3.09 reg.

Yep, Gorda is just South of me and is a bit remote. Just remind yourself to fill up from ether direction prior to entering this neck of the woods.

We were thinking of going along the California coast this coming September, then I saw the story in the NY Times about Gorda (Big Sur was pretty awful too) and decided southern Cal was not for us. I'm wondering about the prices along the northern Cal. coast and Oregon.

In 2006, we paid around $5.40 in Yukon Terr. just south of the Arctic Circle, but I expect that with Canadian taxes and in a place so remote. You just ignore the dollars on the pump, hand over your credit card and just sign.

Last week, in Grand Junction it was around $3.029 and in the small towns up around $3.20. Colorado has been lower than most of the country for quite some time but we're catching up. Speculators and fear have been keeping the price up way above the cost of production for years and the government is happy to go along with it and give the oil companies tax breaks. What a country we have become!

You have to remember one thing. Carmel California is the most exspensive real estate in the country. Anywhere along the coast that is near recreation on HWY 1 is always 50 cents more than a few miles inland. Maybe make some plans with this in mind.

CrawfordGene, If you have never been down the west coast (Washington included) you are missing one of the greatest trips in the US. The beauty of the rainforests and remote beaches of Washington and Oregon, the light houses and Sea Lion caves. The Redwoods and Seqoiua trees of northern califoria. San Fran. is also a very unique city if you have never been there. San Simion and the spanish chirches dating back to the 1700's. The Carmel/Monterey area is wonderful (17 mile drive is a must) on down to Big Sir California. It is one of a half dozen most desireable US trips...maybe number one or two on most peoples well traveled lists. Don't pass it up if possible.
