Price dropped to $2.99 yesterday, jumped to $3.14 today. News media called an AAA spokesman asking him why gas went up. He said something about some scheduled maintenance going on at the local refinery that services the metro area.

Hmmm....yeah maintenance. Maybe it has something to do more with the 4th of July holiday coming up????? Yeah maintenance.....

Hi, while some of you have gone below the $3.00 mark, we rich people in California just broke below the $4.00 mark. This was a recent fill-up for my Lincoln.

Paid $ 3.459 for diesel in Hillsboro TX. Yesterday. Saw one truck stop on I-35 advertising it for $ 3.39. But I had a full tank. That figures.

good news for Americans travelling in Canada

It's gone down somewhat here in Canada, too. Well at least in the parts of Ontario I see.

I paid C$1.17/litre a few days ago, which doesn't even show up on the chart I use to convert to US$/US gallon. It only goes as low as C$1.20/litre, which is US$4.41 per US gallon at current exchange rates.

For those of you considering travelling up here, your dollar is worth $1.03 of our dollars.

Of course this is still true: 1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litres. Yes, a litre is slightly larger than a US quart.

Dollar versus Dollar.

Hi, I love Canada and no matter what the exchange rate is, gas has been the only killer for us. [even higher than California]

$3.09 for regular unleaded today in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Gas here usually runs about 20 cents higher than either Hot Springs or Benton. I haven't done any traveling this week to see the prices in surrounding areas.

Pd $2.69 in Greenville on Wed...here on the coast it is higher, $3.05
We live in the wrong part of the state. Isn't it interesting the differences even in the same state.

It's because they sell it by the quart. Well, litre.

Gas & Diesel prices

Yesterday I paid $3.24 for diesel and $2.96 for regular in Suwanee, GA, (near Atlanta). Sure nice to see prices going down and hope that it continues.

prices down, for now

Yes, I hope prices go down too; however, I read a disturbing headline with regard to a political motivation for the reason why - signing us off as the petro-currency. Supposedly that will allow for manipulated lower prices in the short-term but have devastating effects in 6 months or so. The article does not state what the new petro-currency will be but whoever gains their currency as the trade dollar gets a discount as we have for many years. The article refers to China but leaves that part unanswered. I want to camp now!

I was in South Carolina yesterday. Paid $2.70 in Aikin when I filled up. $3.11 today on the South Side of Atlanta. Damn those tax hungry politicians. Just my opinion, of course.
