    Re: Gas Prices

    It isn't the incremental price difference between stations that is killing our budgets--the savings is minimal. Even if I can save ten cents a gallon (unlikely, unless I happen to have a "fuel frenzy" from the grocery store) that amounts to about 2/3 of a gallon of gas on a fill-up, which is about 12-14 miles of driving. If I have to drive more than 7 miles out of my way to get the low price, I lose money. A two-cent savings, which is the typical difference that I see in the posted prices, has a break-even of about a mile (one way.) Yee-ha.

    Isn't it amazing that gas prices have dropped now that Memorial Day is over? Damn oil companies.

    "And it's not helping that my Dad drives a Honda CR-V SUV, which he bought right before all this gas crap started up, so it's still too new to sell, but at about 15 MPG, it's not easy to keep, considering that he commutes from here, in mid-central MA to Albany,, NY every week--about 300 miles round trip."
    Tell your dad to take off the parking brake. Just kidding. My 2007 2wd CR-V get 25-30 mpg. About 27 on freeway 80+ or so.

    It's called supply and demand. And the high gas prices are doing more for the enviroment than all the politicians.

    $2.99 a gallon here in Greenville, SC, but 50 miles away just over the state line in GA, it's $3.07

    Georgia will be raising its gas taxes on top of everything else this week or so--pooh!

    Re: Gas Prices

    Here in Podunk Ohio we were excited because a local gas station dropped the price to $3.18. It must have been a sale because everywhere else it's about 3.50.

    Our state sales tax goes up today. They are taking the school tax off the homeowners taxes and putting it into the sales tax. We already pay sales tax on food here (didn't in florida) and state income tax and car taxes. Still with all that, its cheaper to live here than in Florida where gas is about 30 cents a gallon MORE expensive than here.
