Update: Gas Prices In Your Neck Of The Woods

Thu Mar 06, 2008 4:26 pm

President Bush stated last week that he never heard of the possibility of $4/a gallon gas in the US.
Saw a picture in the morning paper of a Shell Station in Redwood City, CA (1/2 hour south of San Francisco) that had regular posted at 3.99; midgrade at 4.09 and premium at 4.19.
So what are you paying now, in my area Shell is 3.01 and QT is 2.99 (East of Phoenix) Phoenix is supposed to have some of the lowest gas prices in the nation right now.

For regular gasoline...

$3.48/gallon at the Shell a mile from my house.
$3.53/gallon at the Chevron a little further down the same road.

It'll hit $4 or so by the summer, and it ain't coming down.

North Phoenix is a littler higher. Most stations around my place are posting $3.09

The cheapest I have seen regular unleaded in the Atlanta area in the last few days is $2.11/gal at some independent gas station that is right next door to a RaceTrac (major regional chain here in the Southeast) and since it opened (I should say reopened as it had been closed for several years) it always has priced its' gas a penny cheaper than RaceTrac. When I filled up my work vehicle on Tuesday, I paid $3.08 at the above mentioned RaceTrac. Their main sign had $3.15/gal, but they hadn't had a chance to change the prices at the pumps.

The average price right now is around $3.15/gal.

To get the cheapest gas in town, you have to be a Sam's Club, Costco, BJ's member, or have a Wal-Mart credit card, as they knock a few cents off the posted price.


Once you get inside of I-285, the prices jump drastically, 15-20 cents (or more). Same is somewhat true in regards to stations right off of the interstates anywhere in town.

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 5):
Diesel in Anchorage: $3.57/G

That's cheaper than it is here in the Atlanta area. The average price is around $3.65-$3.70/gal, with some places charging as much as $3.89/gal.

Central CT:

3.179 for regular (lowest seen)
3.45-ish for 93 octane
3.75-ish for diesel

Luckily the supermarket I shop at gives you $.10 off per gallon for every $50 you spend (it accrues over a few months), and when I filled up last night I had $.60/gal discount built up. So I got my gas for $2.64/gal.

Here's a hint, it's close to the city in my username.  Wink

I really don't care how dingy a gas station is, it's not like I'm eating there. The Raceway and Delta close to me are actually cheaper than that, but for years people have claimed their gas hurts their performance, and just recently they got caught watering down their gas. I guess fuel prices as low as theirs really were too good to be true.

Believe me, if we had that price over here, we'd be VERY happy. Even in the few years before the recent boom in prices, I don't remember seeing anything under 70p ($1.39CAD) a litre over here. A full tank of diesel in my Mini is now costing me around £55 (approx $110 CAD). The only advantage is that i can usually squeeze around 500 miles out of it.

£1.15 a litre for 99 Unleaded in Tesco Purley when I filled up the other day... £55 to fill up my Golf  banghead 

Filled a Rental Car (well if a battered National Rent-a-Car 1.8 Vauxhall Zafira can be counted as a car rather than a heap of junk) on the A1 earlier in the week and that was a similar price for standard unleaded.

I remember when I could fill mt Fiesta XR2i up for £10... ahh those were the days!

$2.99 for reg unleaded in Oro Valley, AZ-just NW of Tucson. Word on the street is that oil may hit $150 a barrel before readjusting and going down. Problem is that many funds are looking for safer investments and are buying up oil as a paper commodity to be traded or held in reserve.
