I don't understand it but I sure ain't complaining!


What are the prices in your neighborhood?

$1.99 in my neighborhood. SUCH a relief!

danelle said...

I saw $1.63 today. (Denver)
Woot!

Phil said...

About the same here. I haven't checked an exact price, as we've been driving on fumes for the past three days. I want to see how far we can go on those last few $3 vapors!

Kathy said...

That's incredible. I haven't filled up in a week, so I'm not paying attention to the prices yet.

Maybe we will actually see this price again!

Bill said...

I hope the lower pump prices do not stop the search for dependable energy.

Ed (zoesdad) said...

$1.79--ish. I use my Kroger Plus card and frequent the Kroger gas kiosk. Up to 50 cents off a gallon--so my last fill-up was 1.29 a gallon.

Elizabeth said...

Wow, I felt good that our gas is now down to $3.10 a gallon. But now I'm super jealous of all your prices. That's amazing!

Jeff said...

jen - No kidding!

danelle - w00t indeed.

phil - You must not drive that car much. It hasn't been $3 for a few weeks now.

kathy - Apparently Ed just did! (see above)

bill - I agree. The one thing the over $4/gal ensured was pissed off people. Right now everyone's pretty happy with oil prices which in not necessarily a good thing.

ed - Looks like you win... so far :-)

elizabeth - And how ironic that Alaska has all that oil ;-)

It's been dropping here for a bit too, but it's still a lot more than you guys south of us. We're at about 76 cents/L, converts to about $2.89/L. Not too long ago it was over $1.30/L !!!

Roger said...

There are seven gas stations with a mile from my house (okay make it five), and the prices are... $1.96, $1.97, $1.96, $1.92, $2.09 (always one oddball), $1.89, $1.85. Still isn't $1.69 though.

Yet.

Maybe.

Hopefully.

Heather said...

It was $1.77 here today. I didn't think I'd ever see that price again.

Windyridge said...

Holy crap! It's $2.49 here. NOT FAIR!!

Doug at Taunt Vortex said...

Dude, you only showed the last 4 digits of your credit card number. Please provide all the other numbers to achieve optimal blog realism.

Thanks!

Mom Thumb said...

I filled up two days ago at 156.9. It would be nice if I could jump up and down with joy, but given the fact that the stock market has reduced our retirement by 40%, we will be driving these cars to work until we're 90.

Michelle said...

You know, I was feeling really good about my intent to pay $1.80something tomorrow when I filled up at Costco. I'm no longer satisfied with that price, and it's all your fault! :)

yellojkt said...

1.739 at Costco in Baltimore just a few hours ago. When it gets back down to 0.959 like it was when I was in high school I will dance on the roof of my car.

Hilly said...

I need to move!

It's $2.39 in Irvine, California but we saw some for $2.05 today in Anaheim!

Fancy Schmancy said...

I was amazed when we just went under $2.00 this week. I'm not complaining either, but doesn't it seem like gouging when it was $4.40 less than 4 months ago?

Gette said...

1.79 out here in the sticks.

cathouse teri said...

It's $1.59 here. I sent a text to my daughter in L.A. telling her this and she responded with, "Yeah, but I get to live in California!"

Susan said...

We're at $1.99 most places. Although there are still a few places that only charge that price for cash but a higher price for credit card. Very annoying when you don't notice it until you are already pumping. (Although in my case I would still have stopped there, because I usually wait until I absolutely HAVE to get gas, but still...)

Mom Thumb said...

$149.9 today.

Mooselet said...

OK, I have to do complicated math so hang on... $1.08 Aussie dollars/litre... 4 litres=1 US gallon (roughly)... $4.32 Aussie dollars gallon... Aussie dollar is shite so that's... carry the one... $2.73USD a gallon. You lucky bastard.

April said...

We're still over $2, but I'm not complaining either.

Whit said...

Just over $2, which is about 40% of what it was. I'll take it.

Chubbs said...

I've got everyone beat -- 71.2 cents. Of course, that's in Canadian dollars, and priced per litre. Still, considering our gas was up at about $1.30 a litre just a few weeks ago, I'll gladly take it.

Jacki said...

Me, neither! I am just going to keep quiet and hope they don't realize their mistake! Yesterday Peter filled up my gas tank and it only took $25!!! At the beginning of the year it took $60, and over $100 to fill Peter's truck.

Anonymous said...

I live in connecticut - it was $1.89 yesterday - i did a happy dance!

rick said...

With Obama determimed to switch to alternative energy, and the Japanese comming out with electric cars next year, the oil companies are finally getting nervous enough to make only twenty billion each per quarter instead of forty billion. They are hoping that if they lower the price a little, people will be less willing to switch and make their poisonous product obsolete.

Bee Repartee said...

holy cow.

I contribute to gasbuddy.com cause I'm a geek like that but here locally we have 1.89 at Costco. You can see your local gas prices (and cheapest around town on gasbuddy)

Drowsey Monkey said...

That is an odd price. It's 79 cents a litre here ... don't know what the conversion is all I know is it was over a dollar a few months ago so I'm happy.

Sam said...

Maths for me too. Its around £0.95p/litres in the UK. Exchance rate is about 1.6 = $1.52.

Now let me see, 3.7 litres to the US gallon that gives me around $5.62 per gallon (it is actually about 10% lower than a few weeks ago).

In light of this, I refuse to listen to any complaining Americans or Australians

Kathy said...

Jeff, filled up today. It's $1.82/gallon here in eastern PA. Joy of joys, but still wondering where these nice prices will come back to bite us.

jerrychicken said...

I'm glad Sam did the maths for me, yes, I bought diesel yesterday at around £1.05 per litre, which is cheap, it only cost me £65 to fill my car rather than the £80+ that its been doing for most of the year.

On the plus side I've used a quarter tank today at an average of 49.7mpg so can't grumble :)
