Time to fill up the Ram, with the 35g tank. I always let it go down to fillup light. the 120.00 doesnt bother me that much since she is semi-retired, the challenger gets most of the miles now. I took the truck out the other day to drive thru the puddles after picking up the kids. The challenger doesnt like those puddles!

That's why I love my 26 gallon tank.

Last fill up was $67.81 (21.81 gallons) with the price at $3.10. It's down to $3.09 as of yesterday. I generally do not let it get that low - usually I fill up when it gets to half a tank. Doesn't hurt as much.

It's down to $3.05 where my son goes to college. At one point it broke through the $3 point to $2.97 but went back up.

Hell, I've given up paying at the pump. I just pump, then walk in to pay, at least we can still do that in Alberta. I hated hitting the $100, then putting another $7-$10 in, seemed a waste of another transaction. Worst fill up I had was coming back from BC, filled with 94 and 2 Jerry cans, came to $218.

Anybody remember when gas was $1.50/gal? My first job was at a gas station and this old guy came in and said "wait a few years and gas will be $1/L ($3.79/G)" I figured it would never get that high, now I'm happy when it goes down that low!

I can remember when they had to cut the face plate on the pumps so you could see that the fuel was more than a one dollar a gallon.

That 28.827 Gallons here in the UK would have cost you $230.61.
Petrol here is $8 per gallon and diesel is $8.40 per gallon. This is why my truck runs on LPG which is $4.32 per gallon.

I`m thinking you guys have it quite good! Enjoy it while you can because it can only go one way.

Average about $75 to fill a shortbed at a quarter is tought, but a grand to fill the home heating fuel tank is @^$*( up. $35 a day for the generator (for 11 days) during Sandy was no joy, added to the fact I had to go to pennsy to avoid 2-4 hour lines.

Can't pump first and then pay here. You have to either prepay or pay at the pump. Too many drive offs.......

Ha! I remember when gas stations were pricing it by the half gallon since none of the pumps could be set for prices over $0.99/gallon. Was odd to see prices like $0.55 after seeing the price at $.99. Either way it'd be nice to pay only $0.99 or $1.10 a gallon.......

At any rate prices are down to $3.08 this evening.

Gas went down to $3.21/Gal here tonight. Should have seen the idiots lined up at the pumps & out on the streets!!! (act like they haven't paid for fuel so "cheap" in their lives???)

Was nice to see diesel was up to $3.79/Gal though! Good 'Ol Diesel!!! Make it cost more, because it's just SO MUCH MORE Efficient! Supply & demand my balls. Didn't see one diesel "coal roller" in that station waiting to fill up! Alot of Fuel Efficient four bangers, though. They celebrating $0.06 price drop and for what? Maybe 10-12 gallons? They saved $0.60-$0.72 at the most?

its amazing how saving a few cents makes people feel rich or like theyre getting one over on the oil company. granted i get happy when i see gas drop, but not enough to wait on line to save a few pennies. shit, after this past hurricane, i hope i never have to wait on line for gas again!
