How much do you pay at the pump??

Middie's thread on higher gas prices was interesting and I was wondering, with everyone scattered all over, what do you pay for gas?
Our gas down here in nowhere land is $2.24 a gallon.
It will go down to $2.14 and then back up again. The most it has been so far is $2.48.

I let hubby put gas in my car because I'm afraid to know how much it is now!

Very very wise of you! It hurts to pay so much.

I have to convert liters to gallons. If I am not mistaken we are paying $3.71/US gallon.

Gas went up today, to $2.599/gallon US. It jumped up from $2.469/gallon US just today. Gas prices here are alway 10/gallon higher than elsewhere in Southern MI, and I can't remember why.

I've noticed lately, that, the price at the pump goes up, holds high for a couple days, go down a little for about 24 hours, then shoots up again, higher than what it was. It's been doing this now for 2 weeks. I have no idea when, or if, it's going to end.
