It cost me $36 to fill up today. Chevron 92 Octane (thats what we get in WA state) $2.45.9 per gallon!
Yikes!
What can we do, but pay the price? I was in Europe in 2000 and I was thinking, "hey gas here isn't that bad only $1.39." Then I realized that was for a liter!! I guess we don't have it too bad after all?

Maybe there is no gas tax in the state of Wisconsin?

Re: What's everyone paying for a gallon of premium? (ljhooley)

$1.98 last Friday. I kid you not. There's 3 gas stations on 3 corners of
an intersection in a very out of the way spot, so their prices are always
lower (typically about 10-15 cent spread between regular and premium, instead of
30 to 40, and on fridays two of the 3 stations do 6 cents off premium (one of them
has been running this deal every Friday for over a year). Typically that makes the
premium cost about a penny less than midgrade, and I don't think I've paid over $2.00
in that station more than once, ever. Otherwise it's about $2.09 with a discount
card at the local Safeway station. I ain't complaining either way.

Re: What's everyone paying for a gallon of premium? (Daemon42)

Wow, that's awesome Ian.
I think WA state has a pretty hefty gasoline tax as well as sales tax.
(8.8% sales tax here in Tacoma) However we have no state income tax. I think I saw premium at Safeway for $2.389 and you get an extra .03cents off per gallon if you use your Safeway club card, but I don't go there. I have a Chevron and 76 Union card. Might as well make the oil companies float the net 30 on the card!

Wait till the Europeans wake up and chime in.

Maybe it'll help reset everyone's gas-price-o-meter.

Re: (Daemon42)

Interesting how we are paying about .25 cents a gallon more on the west coast. It must cost more to get that Saudi crude to the west.
What the hell happened to the Alaska pipeline?

Yikes!

In sunny san diego we're paying around $2.56/gal for 91 Octane,
that's what it is at the shell down the hill from me right now.
San Deigo's been holding the record for the most expensive gas in the union for a couple of weeks.

Maybe a 1000cc Lupo would have been a better buy ?
