It's $3.28 here in Benton. Of course, we're right off the interstate, so that makes a difference. My husband went to Indianapolis Wednesday, though, to pick up a new metal lathe, and he paid $3.69 right off the interstate.

While it's true that we have plenty of corn for Ethanol, and a lot of new plants to manufacture it are in the works, it's still not widely available...at least not around here.

I payed $3.23 at Sams on Thursday. I told the guy at the pump that I was filling up before I went in shopping because the last time I was there they raised the price while I was in the store.
When I go for my walks I have noticed that there is a lot less cars on the streets.
You know, I wish that everyone would just slow down a little bit. It would help so much. (sorry don't mean to preach).

I told my son that they are expecting gasoline to reach the $4.00 mark by the end of the summer here in Illinois. I Advised him to start budgeting the $4.00. Then I said "Oh look, gasoline is $3.54 a gallon. That's cheap. Fill up!" Humor is everything.....he bought me some gas.

We are hovering right in the $3.00-$3.10 range. I am sure it will increase as the "season" hits...after this weekend...glad I am getting rid of my cars!

$3.37 here in Southwest Florida. I would ride my bike to work but its a 32 mile trip one way. I just can't get up that early! I would be thin as a rail but too tired to enjoy it.
