    In Charlotte NC we are up to $2.10 a gallon. On a positive note for how big Tahoe / Yukons are I think they get respectable gas mileage...

    Here in Des Moines, IA mid-range corn gas (ethanol) is ~$2.15 right now. It is upwards of $2.30+ in some rural parts of the state. We have less taxes on ethanol so it is actually the cheapest gas to buy here. 87 is about 10 cents more and premium is about 20-30 cents more.

    I didn't even bother checking what my gas cost last time I filled up. I just check the total bill. It was like $60, that's all I care about anymore. That's pretty sad, I know. :-(

    Hmm, I filled up this morning for $2.09 for 87 octane gas. A little station in Mansfield off 287 if you're ever in town. :)

    I can't beleive how expensive Gas costs in the entire LA area. :shock:

    On average I'm paying about $2.55 or so over the past week or two.

    Columbia, SC is about $2.19/gallon. It is not fun putting $50 of fuel in your ride!

    Indeed I did. Sorry for the late reply. Iowa taxes ethanol less than the others as it contributes to our state economy of corn growers. It is now down to $1.97-1.99 depending on where you buy it here in the Des Moines area.

    Wow, well there's some lawmakers doing something for the common good! :)

    Anyone here from Oregon? It used to be that Oregon was 100% full-service gas. It was not legal to pump your own gas, even up to the late 90's. Is that still the case?

    It looks like gas prices have fallen a little bit over the past week or so. :) Anyone else experience this as well?

    Gas went down for a couple of weeks. Now it's started going back up again. :-(

    That's funny. They're giving a rebate on gas. But it's expensive because there is like $.75/gallon tax on it in the first place.
