    Re: Gas Prices

    The cheapest in my area that I've seen is $3.83. It's been holding at that for almost a week now.

    Can anyone explain why it is a whole dollar a gallon cheaper on the east coast???? I realize CA has extra taxes for the lower emissions bs they feed us here.... but come on! I feel as though I need to bend over before pumping gas each time

    So you have to bend over also?

    Re: Gas Prices

    Here in NY (not the city, but not far from it), we're at $4.25. I paid $4.09 at Costco, but any other station is at $4.25-$4.29. I've really changed my driving habits and realized I wasted a lot of time not preplanning my trips/errands. So in a sense, this has made me change my habits which will save money and time in the long run. I'd love to see it drop down but with summer coming and 4th of July holiday weekend, I see $5.00 in the near future.

    Yeah, really -- for lower emissions, that means there's less stuff in our gas, right? So since we're getting less, we should be paying less, ain'a hey?

    Re: Gas Prices

    Am I calculating this right? In Montreal, gas is 1,45 a liter. There are 3.785 liters in a gallon. So that is $5.56/gallon.

    Re: Gas Prices

    1 liter converts to .2642 gallons or 1 gallon converts to 3.7843 liters and it's too early to figure it past that if somebody else wants to try. Used the metric converter we have at work since we are an American company dealing with Japanese parts and do metric conversions in our sleep.

    You need to factor in the exchange rate, too. Good luck with that.
