 Fuel Cost survey!

Ok, I'm 30 miles east of Des Moines, Iowa. Fuel has hit $2.99 a gallon there. Wednesday morning I was still able to fule up in Newton for $2.59 a gallon. Not sure what it's at now.

CNN is reporting they can't give the national survey results because prices are going up too quickly. Some stations in Atlanta are at $4.99 / gal and one at $5.99/gal.

I've held off mowing my lawn. I think this weekend may be the last mow job for the year. I'd better consider what I can cut back on mowing for next year to save fuel.

anyone else?

Regular unleaded was $2.61 here in Banks, Oregon yesterday and is up to $2.67 today. I should feel lucky. The gougers should be stripped of their business licenses.

$3.00 up to $3.50 a gallon for regular gas here 80 miles north of New York City. People who bought hybrid cars are probably smiling. We bought our winter fuel oil in advance for the season at $2.10 a gallon.

Today at 6pm I paid $2.99/gallon (Regular 87 octane). On my way back from dinner the same gas station is $3.34, just 2 hours later!

If this keeps up, going to trade in my gas guzzlers for horses and travel amish style.

I paid $3.39 for REGULAR at a WalMart yesterday (9/1) in Raleigh, NC.

It went up 30 cents from 7:00 am to 11:00 at the same pumps. Outages and shortages are all over the news causing panic and everybody is filling up tanks, buckets and whatever they can find. This is the problem - not a shortage, IMHO.

I'm so happy I just bought a brand new SuperDuty last month that gets 11 MPG!!!!! The wife bought a new miniSUV two weeks ago that only uses premium due to a supercharger. Are we lucky or what?????

Here's a good one, everybody sitting down?

Regular unleaded is at US$5.893/US gallon here now.

Diesel is at US$4.35/US gallon still, but will go up shortly they say.

In some areas gas has already hit US$5.90/US gallon.

Predictions are that it will likely hit US$7.00/US gallon before things turn around.

Clean your windshield and your bank account mister?

BTW, I too drive a Super Duty Ford, but mine has the PSD and a tall rear end gearing, I can squeeze 18+ mpg out of it around town, and 22+ mpg on the highway if I keep my right foot under control.
