Quite a bit, I noticed that premium is well over the $3.00 mark at most stations, EXCEPT this one Shell station that had the prices near last week's level. Gee, his station was very busy yesterday.

Monday morning I had Casey fill up at $2.57, this morning everything was 2.99 to 3.09 in my area for regular. I have to fill up the Mach 1 with premium (yikes!) today...I think I'll be able to get it at $3.19 still on the way home.

BTW, anybody know if using regular in engines that call for premium will actually mess it up? I think it voids the warranty, but I'm just wondering if Ford will back off on the warranty thing with gas prices the way they are.

The higher gas goes, the less the difference is.

There's not THAT much difference between 3.07 and $3.17... The difference is only $1-$2 per tank. Buy the premium.

2.51 for regular, 2.59 now, and we're right smack in the middle of the area that will have a gas shortage if these goobs don't quit filling up 55 gallon drums to keep handy because there's a "gas shortage".

Some people are not capitolizing on the situation. Some people can sleep at night. May the rest live with their poor decisions.

Gas up by the g/f in Athens was 3.50 when it first shot up. About 3.19 it seems to be the average round here. You'd think they could give the college kids a break instead of raising them even higher than the rest... ridiculous.

Things have leveled out here for the last two days and regular is mostly $3.199 with a few up around $3.289.

I found a receipt in my truck from the middle of June and regular was $1.979.

When I went to Ohio (July) to pick up a couple of bikes, I filled up for 2.19. Last week I filled up the fleet @ 97.9 and now it's 1.39 a liter!!! Do the math, south of the border? You are still getting a deal.

I?m not sure of the dollar conversion but at $5.56 a gal that doesn?t sound good. They say the prices here in NJ have gone down about 8 cents per gallon but the lowest I see here is $3.289.
