    1.71 gal here today .....and here an't cheap

    That means in the sticks in SW Va it must be like 1.50 gal :crazy:......maybe less ....it's always 25 cents gal cheaper there than here ....mainly due to the outrageous NC gas taxes.

    Don't worry, we'll still cover the cost in California. Gas is still $4 a gallon where I am

    I'm paying $1.70 ish for 87. Diesel is under $2/gal and home heating oil is.$1.69/gal.

    I find myself driving my rotbox harder with fuel so cheap. Can't speed but I can merge faster ;)

    I wasn't driving yet but my dad would pull in to the gas station and give me $5.
    Then I put $4 in the tank and then run in whatever store and would buy him a pack of Salem 100's with the change.

    I remember when I worked at a gas station what happened when gas finally did hit a dollar a gallon. Our pumps (mechanical) only went up to ninety nine cents, so we had to set the price to fifty cents a gallon and then multiply by two. It was amazing to me how many customers didn't grasp the multiplication concept and actually thought we were trying to rip them off.
