Still around 3.99 here. Which means later today it could be 4.09

But, that probably isn't right if your $ isn't our $, not sure about that one.

Yes, my price was in sterling. Sterling is a smidgen under two us dollars at the moment. (25 would give me just over $48).

That bourne in mind I can't stand to do the sums. Its terrifying.

I think i bought gas for $4.29 earlier this week- I live in the NWI suburbs just southeast of Chicago. It's not so bad on weekends because I can roll many errands into one trip- but my work commute is 80 miles round trip, daily.

$3.97 here. Down from $3.99 a couple of days ago. I've seen some place here as high as $4.09 though.

$3.93 here for full serve (it's illegal in NJ to pump your own gas)... I work in NYC and gas next to my job is $4.49/gal for self serve and $4.79/gal for full serve as of Friday.

I noticed at the gas station yesterday (while emptying my wallet) that it offers a 6 cent a gallon savings for using cash. With all the high prices I am amazed at how many do not take advantage of this small savings.

It will save you about a dollar per fillup, but you have to walk around with a lot of extra cash on you just for gas. I usually have about $10 to $20 dollars cash on me. I do not want to start keeping $80 on me with the possibility of loosing it or having it stolen when I can pay an extra buck and keep using my card. My card earns me points anyway so I get that dollar back in other ways.

Ya that's true. I don't carry cash either and use the points from my card for other things. To effectively save that almighty dollar would take time and planning ahead. Although wealth is made one dollar at a time.

They say that it is the first million that is the hardest to make. I have decided to work on my second million first since that is easier. Once I get that then I will work on my first
