    Gas in Kansas (around some of the larger markets) is pretty reasonable relative to other places. My closest convenience store is $3.01, but I noticed $2.99 per gallon in Wichita. What is it like where you are at?

    Is it still horrible in the southeast???

    I paid $3.19 yesterday. Who'd a thunk it that this would seem cheap icon_eek.gif

    Seems like only one month ago, gas was around $4.20 (probably because of Hurricane Ike). Now it keeps dropping and dropping, and it's around $3.20 here in Indianapolis.

    Here in the Southeast it's still a problem. The average is around $3.80, but many gas stations are still out of gas. I think it's ridiculous, but I have learned to stretch my gas tank to 3 weeks now. It helps having a small car!

    It's gotten as low as $3.59/gallon here in Chicago, but that's in the burbs. In the city it's about $3.89 or so.

    this is not good news. back when it was nearly $5 here in california people were actually changing their reckless, wasteful habits.

    if there ever is going to be any change to actually conserve our resources and invest in alternatives, there needs to be a boot on our throats

    The cheapest I've seen around here was 3.79. And that's if you can find it. I have to drive to the other town to get gas.. and that's if they even have regular unleaded. It's crazy.

    cheapest i have seen is 3.37 for regular so far

    suprised it isnt cheaper elsewhere
    because according to CNN
    i saw that gas is most expensive
    in Alaska, California and Connecticut where I live

    Though i know gas is much more expensive on the other
    side of the state near nyc

    This is very true. Even though the price of gasoline has gone down, we should still use gas wisely and rationally.

    It is below $3.50 a gallon where I am in Oregon. With gas prices decreasing, I find I am driving less and less. I got into that mind set as gas went over $4 a gallon and it is sticking. I think I drove more as it was more expensive.


    *Also when i clicked on this topic the ad is about saving money on gas, kinda odd*

    It's about $3.65 in eastern Oregon, but like many smaller ones, the only gas station in our town has gone out of business. So add the cost of a 35 mile round trip to the nearest pump.

    Even at $3.44/gallon, it's still about $.60/gallon more than this time, last year. Now, at $2.00/gallon, you might need to worry about a resurgence of SUV mania, but I don't think that's going to happen. The public is generally aware of the volatility in the oil markets, and I don't think that most people are going to bet on sustained decreases in gas prices.

    God Americans are spoiled. In Italy a litre of gas is about $2.00 ($1.38 euros). That is over $8 US per gallon. Amazingly enough Rome is filled with cars and scooters. Canada is better off. In Toronto we are paying about $1.09 Canadian for a litre of gas. That is around $5 per gallon.

    Nice to see the prices here in AZ going down to around $3.00 as well as other states. I have to use premium gas though - my cars are older......but I'm not complaining - they're paid for and the licenses, insurance and costs are all lower!

    at $3.65 in seattle we are, as usual, at the high end of the scale... lost up here in this isolated corner of the continental us... glad I traded in my old 4runner a couple of years ago for a new car with good gas mileage...
