Insane gas prices

On Lincoln Way in east Ames, a few stations are currently having some type of gas war. Right now, regular unleaded is $2.09 per gallon at the Citgo, Casey's, and Phillip's 66 all right by each other. About half a mile west is a BP where 87 is $2.48, and further west most stations are averaging $2.50. It's crazy...I filled up my car for less than $30 for the first time in months!

What luxury. We are paying .93 a litre, which works out to $4.22 an Imperial gallon, even allowing for the smaller American gallon, that is $3.38. But we were paying $1.30 six weeks ago.

It's dropped to around the low 2.30s here...Maybe it will keep going down.. At least one can hope :) Keep in mind though, the government let some of the rules down so that gas would drop...so the quality of the gas might not always be that great... nothing a new fuel filter wouldn't fix though....

$2.79 if you look hard enough in ALABAMA it goes up down 10 cent every other day... i think ours isn't going down because were so close to the gulf and the hurricane situatuion

Ive started hearing rumblings about truck drivers going on strike if the price of diesel doesnt come down.

My thoughts exactly, I hope they do strike. Have them park on I-75 and I-80 and stop two of the biggest interstates in the nation. Edited by CD/BP

At least you can get Chevron. Chevron moved out of our area a couple of years ago. Edited by beck27
