I live across the street from a gas station, so I can see easily the prices.

And today the price dropped to $2.99 a gallon.

(69,601 posts)In our town, the Circle K is $3.459 (10 cents less with K card).

In the nearest large city, it's 15 to 25 cents higher.

But, a few station even farther west are between $3.169 & $3.259.

The biggest difference is county & municipal tax rates.

But, we're not close to $3.

(38,828 posts)The price of gasoline means nothing to me. It's a negligible part of the household budget.

It was like that forty plus years ago too when I was a young single wild thing who could fill the tank of my little Toyota with an hours labor.

Sigh, I've also been in the place where I have no gas money, or even food money. One can find food in dumpsters, but not gasoline.

I used to drive all over the the Western U.S.A., Southwestern Canada, and Northern Mexico when gas was almost free to me. I burned a hell of a lot of gas as an anti-nuclear activist bouncing between San Onofre and Humboldt Bay.

If we of the human race had any sense at all we'd ban fossil fuels entirely, replacing them with carbon neutral alternatives.

(9,545 posts)I figure I got to have it anyway so I just fill up, pay and go. But I don’t drive a lot of miles either. My car only has about 8700 miles on it and I bought it in March 2020.

(13,383 posts)Average around town is in the $4.40s using credit/debit.

San Diego always has high gas prices due to the fact there's almost no competition between gas stations. Most aren't franchises. So the prices are set by the companies based on neighborhood location.

#### roamer65

(36,962 posts)I don’t much worry about the price. On the freeway I generally get 40-50 mpg. 33 around town.

But on average it’s running me about $3.25 in MI right now.

To be honest, I don't really pay attention but I did pay attention the other day because my dad brought it up.

I don't drive that many miles and I have to get gas no matter what so there's no point in overanalyzing the price.

#### Cairycat

(1,757 posts)#### Wonder Why

(4,569 posts)It makes me because my Prius gets 54mpg and my favorite entertainment is going to gas stations and watch those giant, oversized MAGAT pickups fill up to see how much they have to pay.

#### kacekwl

(7,425 posts)it goes from 3.99 gal to now about 3.54 gal. Generally goes up 40 to 50 cents at a time then creeps down 3-4 cents at a time. I regularly go to Wisconsin where gas is anywhere from 30 to 50 cents a gal cheaper.
