    $3.15 for regular. My dad used to sell it for 33cents and I remember when there was a gas 'war' and the price was 18-19cents for the gallon of regular!! Makes me feel older than dirt to think about it.

    Gas in my part of Southern Ontario Canada is $1.20 a litre which is down about $.14 from not long ago. As there are 3.8 litres in one of your gallons, I guess my Canadian gas is $4.56 a gallon which is a lot more than yours.

    Sewnoma. I think you will always pay more for your gas in your beautiful area of the world.., than the rest of the country..I'm sure you agree..
    Our prices here on the Central coast of CA has been slowly going down lately..Last I saw was $3.43, but changes daily, as it does. Also depends whether you are filling up on the coast or inland...I want to see it under $2 before I'll be satisfied.

    Here in my part of the UK its £1.30 on average for a litre of petrol. Converting that into dollars makes it $2.06 and then multiplying that figure by 3.78 which gives us a grand total of $7.79. Yes thats $7.79 a gallon!

    Ours is down to $2.99 at a couple of stores. Others are still above $3.00.

    Yesterday it was $1.16 a liter...not sure about today. I am in Southern Ontario too.
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    would you believe that there is one station in our area what was always the best place to go……then all of a sudden, they began to charge a difference for cash or credit..
    and yesterday there was over a .30 difference in it……..I changed stations…...

    The least I have heard of in our area is $2.83, we expect it to drop some more. Because after all, it is an ELECTION YEAR ! ! !

    Locally 3.19 - 20 miles west 2.98. Heard on radio we are now no longer dependent on Mideast oil supply....maybe that's why....but I'm sure someone somewhere will develop a crisis that again will skyrocket the price......let's see what traveling holiday is upcoming?

    I am old enough to remember gas being 19.9 a gallon. Would like to see how far down this pricing goes.

    Forgot to add - $3.10.9 but had a reduction premium of .40 off from the GIANT grocery. So I paid 2,70.9.

    Was doing moderate 'state-wide' traveling today and managed to get gas for $2.81/gal for regular. Felt like I won the lottery that it didn't take almost $100 to fill my Tahoe!

    Was $3.95 here today. Heard a guy on radio say it will go lower--we'll see--it surprises me when the terrorists have taken over some of the oil fields in Iraq, etc.

    My husband and I have been traveling in our motorhome since mid-July. We are in Oklahoma tonight and found gas at $2.59/gal. LOVE the cheaper gas prices since we have a 75 gallon tank that gets filled up often!

    I am getting gas here today for $2.84 a gallon - yay, but it still doesn't beat the 25 cent a gallon back in the 60's, eh? Edie

    I am in Missouri and the gas yesterday was 2.87 near me. I am about 60 miles outside of Kansas City MO.

    The price has been dropping over the last two week about 3cents every other day.

    $3.43 near Albany, NY, 5 cents higher with credit card. I'm sure there will be some excuse to jump it back up soon.

    it was 3.45.9 when I filled up today. maybe it will keep going down, cost of a barrel of crude was about 80. or less. and, as someone said, we are finding our own more than depending on another country. I am on south oregon coast, inland, someone said it was 3.19.9. that is really good for our area.......
