Back down a nickel to $3.249Winner, winner! :D You win... free [to pay for] gas for life... until cleaner fuels become readily available and affordable, that is.

Wasn't close to Costco, so I chose the cheapest credit price station ($3.45). Lowest cash price was $.06 less at another place.

$3.89/gal. here in California's largest oil producing county. It would probably be a lot cheaper if we didn't have to send it south to LA to refine it and ship it back up....

I was stopping by Costco for other purchases, and realized a) I could use some fuel in the ol' car tank, because b) the price was $3.29, :eek: which is about $.40 less than most places elsewhere. And so I did.

Sweet, and to celebrate I paid 3 more cents per gallon then I did last week, the price now is $3.279. Mozel tov!

And a 5 cent jump (in the wrong direction), a gallon will now set you back $3.329

Big jumps lately (near $3.80 in most places), so that even Costco was $3.55 today. :(

Major spikes, from an average of about $3.49 to $3.74 in about five days. I haven't heard any justification for it this time; did the oil conglomerates just stop pretending to explain their shenanigans?

Oh, I heard it was the pleasant change-over from CA's winter blend to summer blend. Luke on Dagobah was reached for comment: "I... I don't believe it..."

Can't find a station under $3.80 any more; may have to check out Costco just to see decent bad gas prices.

Checked a local cheap gas site this morning; was $.04 more at $3.75 when I went by this afternoon. :mad: Too far to drive down to Costco, just to save $.10 a gallon.

$3.239 @ Fred Meyer on Saturday, which ended up being $3.089 after my rewards discount.

Went up ANOTHER nickel today, now its $3.499. For those scoring at home on Sunday it was $3.399, Monday it was $3.449. Jeez I hope it isn't $3.549 tomorrow.

Bel-Cam Jos

We're getting closer to four bleepin' bucks a gallon 'round here. Station down the street from me has gone up over $.30 in the last week alone. :mad:

No there was a couple of days before they upped the price (again), but as I said its now $3.549.

It's official: most stations I pass have prices north of $4 now. :mad:

The march towards the $3.60's is almost complete with the price today going up a nickel to $3.599, that is 20 cents in 9 days.

Found a station at $3.73 (cash) to fill up at today.

Bel-Cam Jos
03-22-2014, 12:52 PM
Same station, price up to $3.75 per this time, put in the same cash amount but less gallons, of course.

Bel-Cam Jos

Back to Costco, as I was near there. "Only" up $.04 per gallon from my last fill-up. Very few other stations here under four bucks. :greedy:

Ripoffs hitting earlier and earlier, with $4.05 for regular yesterday.

El Chuxter
04-11-2014, 12:07 PM
One local station is $4.49 for regular, and another is $4.45. What the hell is going on this time? Did the conglomerates stop making excuses and the news stop covering them altogether?

After holding steady at $3.639 for a number of weeks yesterday it went up 4 cents to $3.679.

Bel-Cam Jos
04-11-2014, 08:55 PM
No stations, save the Costco I went to today, under $4. I got it for $3.93, with lengthy lines at the pumps. Seems to be going up almost a dime a day. :greedy:

First time I've put in $4+ per gallon gas in my new car ($4.03 cash price; easily $.20-$.30 cheaper than other stations; even Costco was more). Guy at the station said "Feelin' the pinch, eh?" I told him nothing higher than the number 4 should ever be the first one in gas price$. :mad:

$4.50/gal yesterday at the corner station. It's the most I've EVER paid for fuel.
I thought I felt a gun in my back...

I've paid a bit more then that, and that of course when I was driving a ton for work.

I thought I felt a gun in my back...I think my highest was about $4.70-ish. Might have to peruse this thread to see if it happened during its time frame...


... and it was a little more than 2 years ago, on a northern trip, that I paid $4.69 per. But in my area, it was about 6 years back, for $4.41. There were days in '08 or '09 with $1 in front of fuel prices, according to this thread. Seriously!

Bel-Cam Jos
04-28-2014, 08:06 PM
Well, I should be pleased that it was "only" $.02 more than my last fill-up at the same station ($4.05). Hoo. Ray. :mad:

First time I paid under $4 per ($3.93 at Costco) in some time, and lines were pretty long there. Haven't noticed any other stations that "low," but prices have been dropping bit by bit.

Same price at the same place as last time; thought I'd try to beat the Memorial Day price spikes. Some other stations around here have dropped a few cents by the next day (one off the freeway from school is about $.10 less than Friday was).

That wasn't exactly the case JJB, I saw it went down those 2 cents at one gas station and I presumed the others would follow suit but that didn't happen the price stayed the same until the other day when it went up 4 cents to $3.659

Bel-Cam Jos

Same price at a different place. Prices are holding steady, with some stations dropping or raising a couple cents here and there (but most still over four bucks).

Bel-Cam Jos

Two cents more than last time, even though in checking online the price was a cent lower at $3.95 than the published cost. Few stations showing under $4, even with ca$h price$. :greedy: :(

Bel-Cam Jos
06-24-2014, 09:41 PM
Same station down to $3.91 (while most are going up around here), but it being their customer appreciation day, I also got a free 22oz drink (or, free gas with about a $30 soda)!

Filled the tank for $47 here in OK to start the trek back west today. It took over $81 to fill it when we left Cali three weeks ago...

Filled the tank for $47 here in OK to start the trek back west today. It took over $81 to fill it when we left Cali three weeks ago...OK (pun intended), let's do the math: if a full tank in CA = $81, and a full tank in OK (still pun intended) = $47, with your tank at 20 gallons, then gas in the Sooner State is $2.35 per, right?

Actually, I had a quarter tank so it was a 3/4 fill. Gas was about a buck more per gallon than your figure. Got home yesterday and watched prices steadily climb. I stopped and topped off at one of our mountain communities (Tehachapi) before coming home at $3.99/gal in order to not buy at our normal corner station which is about at $4.50 again.

Welcome back to Cali!

That's about ninety cents less than here in the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia....

I almost posted a picture of myself here! :rolleyes:

Happened to be near Costco today, and was pleasantly surprised at $3.79 per gallon (online gas site said $3.83). I put some in my tank, and the machine took funds from me; what a great system!

Costco dropped $.04 from when my dad filled up his car, to $3.59 for mine, in a day. Now I have fuel AND the guilt that he got overcharged.

Checked the website for local gas prices the night before; found one down the street a mile for $3.63 (but listed as "cash" there). I checked the same site that afternoon; now it showed $3.69 for cash. :confused: I went anyway... it was $3.63 cash or credit.

Bel-Cam Jos
08-23-2014, 12:03 PM
FREE GAS!

Sort of... I paid $21 cash to top the tank off, at a "cheaper" station (it was $3.55, about $.10-$.25 less than others nearby), and then the total showed $21.02 at the end. :eek: ;)
