How much are you paying for gas/heating oil where you live?

I'm beside myself- $3.39 a gallon- $60 to fill up my V-6 Jeep Grand Cherokee?? That's just too much, not to mention that DH drives all over the State of CT for a living. In addition, we just paid $3.45 a gallon for our last heating oil delivery this week, it'll take us 'till June to pay for this year's oil.

I think its going to be ramen noodles twice a week from now on for us....I'm curious, how much are you guys paying and has it caused you to cut back elsewhere yet?

$3.20/gallon here in Alabama.
$3.35/gallon in some places in Mississippi.

I'm going to be spending the money on getting my bike fixed in a couple of weeks so I can burn only $10 a week on gas instead of $40.

I feel like my last oil delivery was around $3.69. Our bill was over $500 and that lasted about 4 weeks.

Gas is around $3.11

Are you talking per gallon or litre?

I paid $3.07/gallon for gas 2 days ago. It's definitely going up. There seems to be a big difference in price across the country. 3 hours away at the coast, it's $2.89/gallon. But an hour north in Austin, it's ~$3.20/gallon.

I have electric heat now and the climate is very temperate here. But I sure remember the oil man from when I lived in Massachusetts 22 years ago!
