Two weeks ago it was about 20 cents/gallon more. Varies quite a bit from station to station as well. Hess is typically the cheaper.

The best deal I've been able to find in my area is Costco gas, but it requires a membership account.

It will come back down on its own...

Just paid $4.11 a gallon, and it was $4.05 two days ago.

App on iPhone

There's an app called Where on the iPhone that has a search for gas prices based on where you're currently located. It's similar to gasbuddy but it also has local entertainment info and other good stuff.

I just paid 1.46$ per litre.

I just paid 1.46$ per litre. That's 5.55$ per gallon. Thank you Canada...

I can't figure this out, but here, Costco's prices sometimes are up to seven or eight cents cheaper per gallon, while other times, they are the same or higher than nearby stations. Without knowing a bit about it other than what I observe as the posted pump prices, my guess is that Costco sometimes can work a deal from nearby wholesalers and sometimes can't. Costco also seems less sensitive to prices from other nearby gas stations which tend to change in lockstep with one another *cough*/collusion/*cough*.

Costco membership and a credit/debit card to pay are required to work the pumps. There are no windshield squeegees or paper towels to check the oil, which can be an issue traveling when the bugs are out as they are in the south now. Of course, you can bring your own along and use them.

It's not collusion as you seem to think, it's what is called zone pricing. The supplier - and usually it is one of the majors - determines a price they feel the market in a specific area will pay. That's why you can drive down the street and see clusters of stations in the same area all charging the same price or near to it but a little ways down the same street the price for the same brand is different.

A lot of factors go into zone pricing, the main ones being the average income for the residents and the price of the houses.

It will cost more to go save - then you actually save

The math does not work for most people.

It will cost more to go 4 miles to save 5 cents a gallon and come back then you will save on a 20 gallon tank at 20mpg. (assuming you even ran the tank to empty in order to buy the full 20g)

It costs 15 cents a mile at just $3 a gallon and 20 mpg to drive. 20cents a mile at $4, which makes the break even 8 cents a gallon for just a 4 mile fuel trip.

You can extrapolate from there for different costs and mileage. Then add wear/tear and whatever you value your time at.

Just bite the bullet and buy the gas near you

Exactly, it does however make sense to buy gas along the way that is less expensive than other options. I know which of my local gas stations tend to be more/less expensive, just stop at the less expensive options.

Back when gas cost a lot less, a difference of 5-10 cents a gallon could have made more sense to drive a bit for cheaper gas. It really stopped making sense to drive farther to cheaper gas once gas got above 2 bucks years ago.

Mileage cost is significant expense that people forget about. A short while back a good friend and I ran through the numbers of a day long trip from IL to MD and found that a route with toll roads saves a lot of money compared to a route that is a bit longer but avoids the tolls.

It may have to do with the price they paid for the unsold fuel in their tanks...

This sounds like a good app, I will find the name of this app and down load it.
Thanks

Here's a regional report

The following link is to a government site that tracks fuel prices across the country. It gives an average price for 9 regions of both gasoline and diesel fuel. This is also good to see how your local station compares to other regional stations.

Gas Prices Going Down?

So, apparently with tumbling crude oil prices we can expect lower gas prices in the summer.

This LA Times article (blog) goes all the way to predict a 50-cent drop:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/05/gas-price...

What do you think? Probable or Unlikely?

time to ride the bike more

time to ride the bike more often

Some one is not telling the truth

I read from an oil expert that each drop of $1 in oil prices will result in 2 to 3 cents drop in gas prices.
The oil prices have dropped $13 but around here the gas prices dropped 5 cents.

.

They just jumped again today 'on fears'... lmao!

And of course, the summer driving season. If you can afford to travel, that is.

Gas just went up 6.5 cents a litre in the Toronto area today.

Gas is fluctuating by a penny or so. At $1.329 per liter right now.

Food prices are jacking faster than fuel...

I may have to give up eating and working soon. I'll save money by less driving, and the calories spent from work.
