We haven't seen prices that low in a while. It's around $4.00 per for 87 octane.

No car, no insurance, no repairs, no gas expenses.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

$3.62 is the lowest within the state, and $3.79 - $3.95 in town. (87 regular grade)

Lowest in my area is around $4.27 for regular. If it goes any higher I'll start commuting to work by bicycle again.

I checked Gasbuddy and around here: $1.41400 / litre = 5.35257226 US$ / US gallon.

That's for regular (87 octane, I think)

If I had actually bought the truck I wanted a few years back instead of the much-more-sensible car that I now own (about 34mpg highway), I'm pretty sure I would cry every time I filled up the tank. Paying 40 bucks every time is bad enough. It's hovering right around $4 a gallon for regular here, too.

Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.
