    Default Holy gas prices Batman!

    So i went to full up my car last night and spent nearly $50 on 92 octane! I love my car but holy crap thats outrageous. Gas is almost $4 a gallon for 92 octane. What are gas prices like for everyone else?

    Oil prices are going up again, and they never fully came down from the gas prices created by $150/barrel oil a couple of years ago. Gas companies discovered we'd tolerate the prices, so they now expect a bigger profit margin.

    thats about what i paid for 92 octane here. I need to take a trip down the road for my next tank of gas and get some non ethenol race fuel. Not sure what the octane level is but its not outrageous but living in dune city lol we get non ethenol here.

    And here I was griping about $3.35/gallon. It cost me about $30 to fill up the MR2 today.

    and you dont even want to know what it cost to fill the F250 and how fast it drinks it. I paid 3.39 for regular for it. At least it doesnt require premium.

    Try $4.80/gallon here ($1.27/litre) - a chunk of that is taxes, but not that much.

    Just think about how bad it is for aircraft. Our FBO is selling JetA at $6.20/ish a gallon and Avgas at like $6.90/gal. Glad the MRS takes regular and gets high 20's in the city..

    filled up tonight at mid grade 3.67 / gallon just over 45 bucks to fill..........its 3.55 for regular.....so i think the f350 will stay parked awhile longer as that will be over 100 bucks to fill......also the van is staying parked as it has the same tank as the truck does......

    if gas prices keep jumping im setting up shop at work..... ill just set up a cot and plug in the ps3 and tv and have fun.

    I just put $68 into the ST185...sad thing is I go through a tank a week. Probably not the best commuter car, but it sure is fun to drive, especially in the cold weather on the snowy icy roads!

    Screw your $1.24 a liter. When I was in Ontario it was 99¢ which was insane to me then.

    My all trac was gonna be the daily, but because of the drivability, gas prices, whats on the horizon, i cant ever see getting rid of my green goblin 94 GT. I go so long between fillups, cant never even remember the last time I filled it up. Over a month for sure. Gonna try and check timing belt status this spring.

    Has anyone ever heard of adhesive body patch kits? A guy I know told me about them, (he litterally owns 100 vehicles, classics, etc.) so I assume he knows what hes talking about but I wasnt able to find anything on searches. In leu of paying a shop $1000+ to patch the quarter panels.

    I filled up my ST last Monday with 93 octane and noticed Thursday when I stopped there again that the price had already gone up by 23 cents!

    I doesn't hurt me so bad cuz I have 3.5 miles each way to work with little traffic - I usually fill up about every two months.
