Under a quid fifty!

.
Lookie! This is how much I paid for gas today! Woo hoo! This is the first time I gassed up for under a quid fifty! I think my high for this year was $4.61 USD.



Costco is always cheaper than most regular gas stations. Here is what a typical gas station is charging today:



How much is petrol in your neighbourhood?

This post was inspired by Udar's post; gas is obviously cheaper in NJ!!! Check out the rest of his blog, he has some nice photos there.

Hi S!

So cool! :) I just love being able to get a glimpse at life in different parts of the country! Thank you for sharing and for the "shout out". :)

I saw it for $2.06 this evening, which means it's $2.03 at Wal-Mart if you go inside the store first and purchase a gift card to pay for your gas.

I'm so thrilled. We're going on a camping trip next week, pulling our 5th wheel travel trailer. We don't get very good gas mileage when pulling it, so the lower prices will help considerably.

$2.99 this weekend in PDX, first time it's been under $3 in ages.

It was $2.20 last time I looked. I told my dh and dd I wasn't filling up my car till it went down to 2.25. And they said I would be walking then. Ha ha ha :-}

Gas is pricier in California, but is way less than a few months ago. I guess that will just give us more money to buy the little necessities in life (like yarn). Thank you for your tip with regards to cable scarves gobbling up yardage - I had not thought of that. The yarn only gives its weight (no yardage) so I will definately look for a lacier pattern. Great news on the gas though.

Claudia said...

Ours is right around $2.50. And it still seems to be going down. Finally!!!!! :)

Tamiknits said...

We are at 2.86 -- I was so excited!

Zandra said...

Most of the stations around here are ranging from $2.199 to $2.299. The lowest gas price I have seen here in Topeka is $2.099/gallon. There are a couple of stations that tend to have lower prices than that one, but I did not go by them on my way home this evening. I suspect we may even see $2/gallon gas at some stations around the election. Of course I am sure the prices will go back up after the election.

I was in West LA today and I paid $2.95 today; saw a no-name station for $2.93. I was surprised. The nearest station to our house was under $3.10.

LOL - the verification word is pledgeds;

Got it for $2.13 this morning in central Ohio and saw somewhere else at $2.09. It's been falling pretty steadily, although I expect it to shoot up after the election.

On Monday I paid $2.59 a gallon. (MA) Sure hope the prices stay this way for a while :)

NE Ohio yesterday I paid $2.06.9. I guess there are some places today that are $1.99.9

$2.88 yesterday in Southern California. That's a bargain!!!

TracyKM said...

We're seeing 92.9cents/litre....It's funny to me to see what a wide range you have. Here, it's considered a huge difference if one place is 92.9 and another is 93.5!
