    In my town gas has dropped 10 - 15 cents in the last 2 or 3 weeks... how is it around the rest of the country?

    I saw a couple stations that were 10 cents cheaper($2.31) but I'm still seeing a number of $2.41-$2.49/gallon


    Eitherway, as much as it is a drag and a hole in your wallet, I'm an advocate of higher gas prices, the higher prices are, the more people will look towards buying more fuel efficient cars and the more people will realize the value of oil as a finite resource.

    It's dropped here too. I live in San Diego where prices are notoriously worse than most of the country. We'll see if it continues...

    California is usually 20-40 cents higher than the rest of the country, particularly SoCal.

    The peak around here was $2.30. Now it's down to about $1.80.
     
  7. Gas prices in the Atlanta area have dropped anywhere from 15 to 25 cents a gallon in the last week or so, depending on where you go. At the filling station nearest to my house, prices peaked at $1.98 a gallon for regular, and now it's $1.75.
     
  8. down about 0.30 here.

    Interestingly, I've seen a couple Priuses out and about. Very cool.

    Prices dropped on average maybe 10 cents.


    Riding a bike is still honest, though.

    Down to 1.85 where I got it today just outside of detroit. It was down below 2 for a couple weeks, and just now dropped about another 10 cents.

    In my town its anywhere from $2.17 to $2.40.
     
  13. In our location, Northern Iowa, We're seeing prices drop to between $1.72 - $1.82, depending on location and octane. We were seeing prices several weeks ago at around $1.97 - $1.99. One station I stopped at was selling for $2.05.

    Peaked two weeks ago at $2.19, it was down to $1.84 today. However, when I got home from my day trip to Chicago, I saw that it was $1.95 or so again. Here's hoping they go down again.

    Just spent $23 for ~10 gallons
     
  17. It's $1.89 here. Illinois, on the River. What happens, is prices go up for holidays, summer, etc. But when they drop, they stay higher than before. Good thing I get 32 mpg.

    I've got $1.69 all around here.

    The Priuses are very cool little cars. My friends family has one, and he gets to drive it all the time. It averages about ~100MPG on the highway, and around 60 MPG in the city... There's 10 fuel bars on the gas guage, and we put $5 into it, and it raised up 3 bars. These cars go forever. They are so quiet and nice. One thing is that they are sort of slow, but it really makes up for it in fuel effiency. I don't really like the "futurustic" looks-I much prefer the Civic Hybrid. Looks like a normal car. I really dig that.
     
  19. Filled my truck up this morning....still $2.85/gallon. It's taking close to $40 to fill my truck up from between 1/2 and 1/4 tank.
