$2.46...it has been a long time since it went that low for us! Our just went to 2.99 yesterday...and that is only for some gas stations...

I remember in college when it would be .99 for a long time. I remember thinking it was expensive when it went over a buck! How wrong was I???

I remember when I was driving to IA and waiting to get to GA exit 7 I think it is to get the gas that was .74! I thought the .89 in FL was just ridiculous... boy, oh boy....

When I first got my little car in December 01, it cost me 12 dollars and 70 cents to fill it up the first time. Now it's nearly 30 bucks to fill'er up!

My daewoo would get around 30-ish. My van doesn't do horrible though. 18-20, depending how much short/long running I do...

We're around $2.87 here, and have been for awhile. A couple months ago we were near $3.60, so I'm elated that we got down this far.

It's about 2.57 here. It cost an astronomical amount of money a month to put gas in our car... thanks to my idiotic husband who went out and bought a trailblazer.

We're at $2.74, too. I'm loving my Subaru, cause even when the price creeps up over $3, I can still fill up for ~$35 and drive for almost 2 weeks. My Jeep took $40-60 every week-ish. I do miss the 0.70-0.99 prices though and remember when we thought $1.25 would break our bank!
