I saw $4.05 and was so EXCITED! Unfortunately I wasn’t driving and I don’t live close enough to get gas there. But I did get gas for $4.17 which was exciting! Just a week and a half ago, I put $4.33. I hope this trend continues!
My car uses premium $4.41 down from $4.61. I only fillup about once per month, so I was lucky to pay the peak. Still though it’s about 25 cents per mile, so walking and biking are still the best for short trips.
Each time I see a new low price, I am afraid it won’t last. 4.59 was also my peak, about a month ago. I swear it was only $1 something when I first started driving, a long time ago.
I’m glad though, considering I’m driving about 1000 miles during our vacation!
We are down to $3.97 most place, but I saw one around town that was $3.86!!
For the first time I am noticing a HUGE difference between regular and the other grades. Regular is $3.97 while Mid Grade is $4.31, and Super is $4.41. I don’t know why… everything used to be 10c apart before.
The most i’ve paid is $4.00. Gas has dropped down to $3.69. Which i still consider outrageous. 5 months ago when i lived in Tennessee, gas was $2.70 then i moved to Tampa and it was $3.05. But its better than paying European prices for gas.
ouch, the average price for regular now is about $3.70, the cheapest i’ve seen it is $3.59. Premium peaked at $4.29/gallon and is now down to about $3.99, cheapest i’ve seen it is $3.84. I remember when gas was under $1.00/gallon. =/
P.S. These prices are from Richmond, VA area, we always seem to have cheaper gas prices than the rest of the US
The price of oil is down 20% from the peak. By mid september it should be no more than $3.20 or so. The wholesale price of gas is down 70 cents from the peak right now. Of course your state may add more taxes than mine. Here in Phoenix the average is $3.75, I filled up for $3.63 on sunday. I have seen $3.59.
OK…Yesterday, 8-11-2008, I had to fill up and went to my normal secret spot in Stockton, CA … Safeway where the gas was selling for $3.89 a gallon for 87 octane … not did I get my normal 3 cents off a gallon, but since I shop there I got an additional 7 cents off … making it, can you beleive this great price … $3.79 a gallon…
Average price at the pump in Madison, Wisconsin is $3.73. I’m considering changing to a Ford Contour that can run on either gasoline or compressed natural gas. When I’m in Madison I can fill up for a fraction of the price. (I think CNG is a dollar something per gallon.)
Cheapest gas I can remember is $0.89 per gallon in the Midwest right after the Gulf War ended in around 1992. Of course, when you adjust for inflation, the historically lowest prices were about 1998 (though higher than the 1992 period nominally). Current gas prices, however, are very close to the highest ever, even when adjusted for inflation, higher than the previous 1980-81 peak during the gas crisis. On the bright side, it looks like we’ve just been in a classic commodities bubble (no guarantees) which is beginning to unwind.
