Dropped more than a hundy filling the sedan the other day on premium, then had to get some more gasoline for the tractors . 89 octane was 4.01/ gallon, diesel even more. What the hell ????   Glad spring is around the corner so I can get back on my bicycle. :dancingbanana:

Wifey and I had a little ceremony tonight on the way home from the store.  We called it our "Pre $4.00/gal. Fuel Up".  Our place (Mobil) was $3.95 for regular, but on the way we saw $3.99 at a mini-mart.  With the bad weather starting the "dealers" will be sneaking out to the pumps in the dark tonight to click on the four buck mark all in unison.


I think it's about time for a national cry of "Baaaaaa.... Baaaaaa... Baaaaaaaaaaa" as we allow ourselves to be fleeced once again.  It's truly a sin how this country has become so complacent in less than 50 years.  It's the work of true genius!:D

Anyone use the gas buddy app ? Or gasbuddy dot com ?

It's great on your smart phone if your in an area where you don't know who has the cheapest gas or diesel.

Another neat gas related site is Fuelly http://www.fuelly.com/  It allows you to log your mileage and compare to others with the same vehicle or if you are looking at a new vehicle you can see what others with that model are getting in the real world, versus the pie in the sky EPA ratings the dealers will feed you.

Oklahoman's open, we have plenty of space here.


My wife and I drove down to your fine state last November to visit her family (I'm married to an Okie.)  I was amazed at the gas price difference.  It was $3.65 /gal at home and the price went progressively lower as we went thru each state until I saw a low of $2.93 in Tulsa. 



$3.47 9/10s 1/4 mile from me, cheapest place in south jersey. For some reason it's always a few cents cheaper in my town then any other around me. No complaints about that. A few pennies saved is a few pennies saved. : )


Way cheaper than PA, plus yours is FULL serve.

So where are the outraged senators and congressmen calling for gas relief? Mine are eerily silent when it comes to gas and outrageously noisy when it comes to things they shouldn't be meddling in...
