Im originally from Chicago but now I live in the joliet area.(about 40 miles away). A couple of years ago there would a difference of at least .30 cents with joliet being cheaper now or the same. Its just crazy how prices are. I gotta fill up my tank every week.

Anyway I last filled up at 4.24

3.85 is the lowest in Bloomington, IN. I use an app, Gas Buddy. It will show you the prices of all the stations around you. You can sort by price or distance.

Paid $3.79 last night (in North Carolina), but I just downloaded that Gas Buddy app (thanks CB!) and see that another place close by is just $3.72. Looks like I got dicked in the dick.

Cheapest I saw last night was $3.94, but that's up $0.15 in a week. I'm in the very northern suburbs of Baltimore.

Gas in Omaha is around $3.75 depending on the day, it's worse when you get out of town. The small town gas stations I live by are close to $4. Looks like I'd better quit complaining though seeing what prices are for some of you...

I think it I saw $4.59 on Tuesday, but we only fill our cars up once a month or so. That's the advantage of living in a small town. Bike/walk the boy to school in the morning, I walk to work, wife bikes/walks for groceries. Pretty nice.

$4.63 but the sad thing is I am happy about that. Last time the prices stateside rose to nearly 4 dollars it was over 5 here. Stupid Hawaii. Guess you cant harness rainbows for power... That gives me an idea!

I remember when gas was $0.94 a gallon and cigs were $1.50 for a pack of camels in the early 90's

Dicked in the dick still makes me laugh.

It's $3.67 here in Des Moines.

First tank of gas I ever bought included a carton of cigarettes for less than $25 mid-90's. Now, you need to throw a 1 in front of that, but hey, inflation is in check.

I think in '92, when I first started driving, gas was 85¢ and cigs were $1.50. I remember thinking that the price went up to the $1.50-$2/gal range fairly quickly after that, too, but I distinctly remember like a week in '98? '99? when suddenly prices dropped back below $1 for like a week -- at least in Champaign -- for the first time since I got my license. Maybe that didn't happen. Maybe I was on drugs. I don't really remember.
