gas prices? - Page 2

post #31 of 41
I filled up a couple days ago and it was $2.99. I fill up once a week, driving about 25 miles, one way, to work.

Back up to $3.09 here!! I hear it will be to $4.00 before long!

It goes up and down around here. It averages about 3.20 or so. Wasn't it nice when gas was only 99 cents a gallon?

It jumped to $3.14 on thursday. I'm not working now so our gas consumption is a bit lwer but I'm going to have to raise my prices if gas stays above $3.00. I haven't completed my mileage calculations for 2007 yet and the IRS did bump up reimbursement to 48.5 cents so I'll have to wait until I get my acct to finish my ppwk for 2007.

I had to do some calculating. Diesel is currently €1.28 per liter here, which works out to $7.16 per gallon at today's exchange rate. Regular & Super gasoline cost €1.38 per liter, and therefore $7.69 per gallon.

Guess why I commute to work (38 km/24 miles one way) by train, and hubby rides his bike to work, although it's a 45-minute bike ride one way? At least we have supermarkets, banks, etc., within walking distance, and only have to use the car (2-year-old diesel, with great m.p.g.) once or twice a week.

I'm on the budget plan for our heat...so I pay $95/mo regardless if I use $300 this month or next...however in the summer months when I'm using $25 worth I'm still paying the $95...so basically it breaks even.

Our last house I had $160 "saved" up for the winter when we left.

Oh be careful with that!!! A couple of years ago, I was on the budget plan too. Then they did the re-calculation at the end of the period, and I was stuck with a nearly $500 bill, which was due upon receipt. I will NEVER do that equal monthly payment rip-off again!!!

We pay between $3.40 and $3.50 here in No. CA. My hubby's office is 50 miles away in Silicon Valley. He can telecommute 4 days/week. He has 3 reports in Sunnyvale, 3 in MN, 1 in Germany, 1 in France and 1 in Australia.
But his company is not doing so well so he is currently looking for another job which would be in the Valley, too. He probably would not be able to telecommute.
So bummed. I got used to having lunch with him.

Well all the way over here in my neck of the woods.....Victoria, Australia we are having petrol/gas price woes too.
I paid $1.41 a litre the other day and the newspapers say it will reach over $1.50 per litre soon with no sign of coming down .
Now I don't know how much that converts to in U.S dollars but it is pretty darn expensive here!!!!
I use my car a lot, driving from client to client for work so it is getting ridiculous.
Used to be a time when I could go for a leisurely Sunday drive with my son, but now I have to think twice about it so I have enough petrol in the tank for work. I don't even see my friends and mum as much as I used to

It went up to $2.96/gal here yesterday.

Rob & I both work 25 miles from the house, but only 10 miles apart from one another. So instead of taking two cars, we take one - drop him off at work, then I drive the 10 miles to work, back to pick him up at night, and then drive home. So instead of driving two cars at a total of 100 miles per day, we drive one car at 70 miles per day. (We used to work at the same place, then it was even less miles per day!). I'm usually sitting there waiting for him for an hour or two after I get off work, but I get a lot of reading done!

We bought our '92 Acura a year ago on the 10th, and it had 165,000 miles on it. We now have 194,700. (as you can see, we DRIVE). Gets about 30mpg and costs $30-35 or so to fill the tank about once a week.

Diesel/gas prices rose €0.05 per liter yesterday. I give up - these prices are ridiculous. $3.00 or $4.00 a gallon is simply dirt cheap in comparison to the prices here.
