How LOW can you GO?

Last night, I was driving home and saw some nice gas prices. I found, at a Safeway filling station, in Northern California (though not coastal), gas for $ 2.52.9 and that was prior to the 3 cent Safeway club card discount. That puts it at a hair under $2.50.

That same Safeway, 6 months ago, had gone as high as $ 4.49.9. Looks like I may take a few road trips.

What's happening with fuel prices in your area?

$1.94

Holy cow, you guys have it even better over there huh?

The lowest fill up of 2008 for me was like $25 in the Mercedes

and having over a half a tank since it was the Irving at $2.39.

And, like Sunoco, Shell & Gulf, Irving is DOMESTIC OIL. :w00t:

We've typically got some of the lowest gas prices in the country. In fact, southwest Missouri has an insanely low cost of living by just about any measure. But the weather is schizophrenic, jobs can be a bitch to find and culture is non-existent.

Edit: Gasbuddy has one station at $1.92 and a couple at $1.93.

0.829$

A LITER. :smilewide:

I love it. :lol:

The math:

.829 x 3.785 (liter to gallon) x 1/1.225 (current exchange)

= $2.56 US a gallon.

Not bad.

:mind-blowing:

I said I would eat my shoes if gas went to 90 cents (when it was a dollar).

It dipped to 90.2, and has since gone to 91.4 in my area of Toronto.

My shoes are safe for the time being.

2.09

I see you're in Michigan.

This could spawn a lot of orders for V-8 Camaros.

Last I heard it was $1.97 in Des Moines (that was about a week ago). Here in Eastern Iowa it's about $2.19 for regular.

From a similar thread on a Malibu forum, it seems like a LOT are actually under the $2 mark.

I just filled up yesterday at $2.29, and paid $2.39 to do the same Thursday at the beach before a highway trip. Probably will drop lower, in days to come, here in southern DE.

Today I filled up for under $35 for the first time in a long time. $2.17 for regular and I put in about 16 gallons. It's hard to believe I was paying double that only a few months ago.

Scary, huh?

Really? As companies in the USA lay off millions of people?

I'm not trying to think that way...or I would stop buying pretty much everything but food....

Nothing makes sense these days...and hasn't for a while.

Got gas in the '87 MC LS today ... $2.49 a gallon!
