Summer road trip cancelled

Expat sent me this photo and remarked, "Well, we knew it was coming didn't we?" Has it topped $4.00 in your neck of the woods yet?

seems to be wavering just below $4 up the coast from you in Pasadena. Lots of places have gas for $3.90-3.99.

I'm torn, I think this is going to make people limit their unnecessary driving, but more likely it's just going to make people poor while still driving the same amount.

In Minnesota we just started seeing prices in the $3.50's.

It's funny. 7 years ago when I got my driver's license (I'm 23 now) I paid a whole $25 to fill up my 12 gallon tank. I'm still driving the same car and last week it cost me $42.

With the prices in your picture, I'd be flirting with $50. I think I might buy a bike. This is getting ridiculous.

Holy! Summer of '93 gas was "super expensive" all across the nation except in Iowa and Wyoming it was 93 cents a gallon.

If that makes me sound old, wait for it, I remember my mom driving around looking for something cheaper than 56 cents during the 70's oil crisis.
Sigh.

I'm happy to have no idea what the price is in HK now.

Holy $%^*^%$#@$&@#& !

I am not coming home soon. My car is in storage in LA and it will stay there....

Perhaps public transportation :(

Katie's comment made me think about my "cheap gas" obsession - always looking for the lowest price and driving a little out of my way to "save" a few cents on the gallon. Ha! I was thinking of driving over to Minneapolis to save lots of money on gas!

It always amazes me how gas prices can vary from station to station even within a few blocks of each other. I go to a Shell on Midway Drive (at Fordham) which is typically somewhat cheaper....

Yeah that Shell station has the reputation of being the cheapest in the area. It's often very crowded, naturally.

Your gas is close to 30ยข more than ours in Seattle as of yesterday, anyway. No telling what today's price is -:)

About time to post another pic - $1.55 is the lowest I've seen in SD.
