Yesterday, the cost per gallon increased by 20 cents in most West County gas stations to $5.79.  Have the best day

Our little town has regular at 3.39-3.35 and 3.29. I go to the BP at 3.29.. :D I love how they raise the price before they ever buy another load at the high price to put in their tanks. Diesel is 4.29 a gallon as of Friday. 400 gallon of Diesel runs a semi about a day and a half at 1716.00 a fill up, 5148.00 a week. (we have 10 trucks on the road) Farmers are really going to be hurting this planting season because of fuel costs. Farm fuel is 3.23 a gallon a little over a dollar more than last year so far. Look out for the cost of food this coming winter.

You do go to the store and buy groceries Philly. You are paying for the cost of the increase of fuel charges in the cost of the food you buy. So you aren't totally getting by without being affected by the high fuel costs.

It is official ...gas in SF is $4.00 a gallon of the regular kind...premium is at $4.23....
in San Jose you can still get gas at $3.89, but not much longer I'm sure....

I used to drive a 69 Cadillac Coupe de ville with a 500 engine that was made for an El Dorado. It was red with a white leather top and interior and when you put the pedal to the medal, the front would actually 'lift up' as it roared..woahhh..and you found yourself embedded in those leather seats. It got 6 miles to the gallon. This was in the 80's. I was spending $300.00 a month on gas and one day crossed over after doing the math that I could buy a brand new car for $300.00 a month. One day, after work, I pulled into the driveway and my nephews were dancing around the car...."ronnies home ronnies home", I surprised them by jumping the curb and continuing on around the back patio continued up into the woods and when I could go no further, parked it, locked it and left it there. Took the city bus to work for three months, saving my money and bought a more economical and sensible car..turned out it was so sensible that I sometimes felt that I needed to get out and push on the access ramps to the freeway so as not to get hit... ;D I missed that cadillac most when I would be getting passed by everything on the road.. :-[

Two days ago, it was $3.37/gallon. I haven't been out since then, but I have gone back to putting in $20 here and there and mostly staying at home.

I filled up Erma yesterday at Costco. The regular unleaded there was $3.17 a gallon, and the old girl darnk a whopping 21 gallons of the stuff. She has a 23 gallon gas tank and at her gas mileage this gives me a cruising range of just over 500 miles, so it's really not too bad.
   Rondrond: I had a '68 ElDorado with the same engine, and if I was nice to it, I could get about 17-18 mpg out of it, if I wasn't it quickly plummeted to the single digits. God could that car go! I loved racing the boys in their Mustangs with it. The front wheel burnouts always freaked them out ;) Yes gas has gotten expensive, but I'd still rather have a car and be able to go where I want, when I want to and not have to rely on constatly bothering people for rides. I suppose I could move back to the city and use public transport, but there is nothing worse than riding a bus with a bunch of drunken vomit covered slobs at 5:30 in the morning. Country life is so peaceful, it's worth the extra cost to live here.

I should be ashamed to say that the reason for such poor gas mileage was what my Mom called my LEAD FOOT. I would get a rush from some little sport car pulling up beside me thinking that I was in grandpas caddie and then when the light turned green I was already 2 miles down the road before they had even taken their foot off the brake ;D and they had no hope of catching me, no mater how hard they tried 8) and they did try...

   Rondrond, about a year or so ago, I posted about that very thing. I was driving my '63 Caddy and some kid out in Daddies 'Vette was trying to impress his chick, but he couldn't drive worth a goddamn. The result was that I beat him in four consecutive races when the lights went green. I can still hear the clashing of gears because not only could he not drive, he couldn't shift worth a shit either.

Capt, I am so bad. I have no shame. Eventually, they would pass me, as I was parked at the gas station. Though I had started out with a full tank, I watched that gas needle literally move before my very eyes from 'F' to 'E'.... But...it was worth it.  8)

I paid 9.02 US dollars a gallon today.....in Belgium. I was lucky.. it just went down from 9.12  last weekend.... :-[

I filled my car and I paid  a freaking  $ 155.00  :o :o :o :o :o

So, that was it. I am either selling my car; or just use it in emergencies. Not a hard decision to make.

Hermie

Hermie,

The reason YOU pay so much for gas is due to some extent to our long-standing refusal in the USA to pay all the associated costs of using fossil fuels.  We should be paying comparable amounts here but that ain't happening any time soon.  It would cause economic chaos and make gasoline a commodity only the wealthy could afford.   We will have to pony up eventually, pretty soon I hope, to combat the effects.  Or we're doomed.

A tendency toward severe car-sickness (motion sickness) as a child instilled a distaste for driving I carry to this day.   At 52 I don't ride my bicycle as much as I used to and grocery stores aren't within walking distance (trying to carry 20 bags home or on public transit would be challenging, too) so I drive more but still hate driving mostly because of traffic.  If I carried a gun in my car I'd have been in prison long ago for murder.

There was an article in the Forestville newspaper; telling us that because of the cost of fuel, family owned markets (such as Speers Market) could not raise the credit dollars to stock their shelves.  Because the shelves are not stocked, the customer is driving out of town to shop at bigger markets. Have the best day

A breakdown of our gasprices; a "mere" 62% goes to the government   :o

At Ä1,58 per litre Ä0,98 goes the government, and the remaining Ä0,60 goes to the oilcompanies and gasstations. In our case it's the government to blame for this mess  >:(

Of course, the european governments also use the additional energy tax funds to provide good public transportation. Something that's not an option in most of suburban america. Trust me, if I had a choice, I would gladly take the train in California to work. I just can't. In Silicon valley, the bus takes 1h15 minutes to do the mere 5 miles from my home to work because a change is needed. Walking would be only a little bit slower, but it's not an option because there are no sidewalks ! Bicycling is not safe as there are no bike lanes and the express ways I have to cross are 5 lanes wide. The only realistic option is a car. I had to learn to drive because of the above. I drive a Prius. I drive little so the gas prices don't affect me much.

I don't go to town much these days but I was in Forestville on Sunday and the cheapest gas in the area was $4.15 over Memorial Day Weekend.  We have been conditioned to accept the rising prices during holiday weekends.

That was last week, this is now... Today at the cheapest fuel stop on the Russian River, the cost of fuel is now $4.29 per gallon.  I used to spend 7 or 8 bucks every day at that market because it was convenient for around the last three years.  That oil company has a store with bread, milk, cookies, candy, soda and beer... Let it rot on the shelves!  ;D  Have the best day

We are up over 4 bucks for regular around here now.

My Grandmother turned 93 last month, I was talking to her last week and she used to pay .25 /gallon back in the day.

I wish I could ride my bike to work. It's 7 miles but the problem is I have a mile long stretch on a 2 lane road with no shoulder where people drive 55 mph. Also I get off work at 1:30 in the morning and I worry about riding at that hour. When I lived in Seattle I rode my bike everywhere. I may have arrived rain soaked and sweaty but I had great legs!

Since Roddles started this thread in late March, our lowest price for gas on the Russain River was $3.55 per gallon.  That same  station is $4.59 today for the low octane regular.  There was a link to view on my homepage this morning saying gas prices are expected to remain in the $4.00 price range through 2009.  Did not read the article  Have the best day
