    Thumbs down What are you paying for gas right now?

    We have a Costco about 4 miles away and they have the lowest price around. I just paid $4.35 for 91 Octane here in Los Angeles / Orange County area. I drove past an Arco station on the way to Costco and they were advertising almost $1 more per gallon.

    $3.20 Regular, up to ~$3.80 Premium here at regular gas stations, I don't think it's much cheaper at Costco/BJs/Sam's, etc., maybe ~10 cents difference.

    About $4.79-$4.99, none of the gas-price sites seem to work after the businesses are closed.

    Sure Costco is cheaper.

    Crude oil prices have been going up in the last couple of months. Combine that with Cali's high excise fees and taxes on gas, and prices may be the highest in the States there.

    Out here Costco is the minimum of $0.40 a gallon cheaper than anyone. When we visit relatives in Las Vegas I always search for the nearest Costco. Although the Nevada prices are lower than here, their Costco gas is still $0.30 less per gallon than a branded station.

    If I could get gas for $2.83 I'd go out driving just for driving's sake.

    High Nightowl! How's the frozen land up there?


    Went up to $3.15/gallon, but yeah.. It's cheap here comparatively. I think the cheapest I've seen was in South Carolina.

    $3.39 average in the blue state of Michigan near the Motor City area where we are 10-15 years out from EV's being affordable for the upper lower class...otherwise we are all screwed if our administration continues to be completely stupid...

    $3.59/gallon for the 89 octane into my truck this morning.......she sips fuel much better with her Coyote 5.0 V-8 than my prior RAM pickup with the 5.7 HEMI did. Although the RAM was a LOT more fun to drive.

    Depends on where I am in my route (91 octane is ~$4.80/gal at stations along a major street and next to a freeway). Like BaLa, I live <5 miles from work so to be honest I don't really scrutinize what I'm paying as I have no choice. Getting all worked up won't make my day any more pleasant. May as well head in and pick up some Cheetos as an added distraction.

    Being retired and now that I'm driving a whole lot less it really doesn't effect me. But, I have always regarded paying the lowest price possible to be something that sort of acts like a virtual savings account over the years. It's not the tank to tank refills that make a difference, it's the paying attention to the price for 5 or 10 years that can add up to thousands of dollars of savings.

    You're absolutely right on that point.

    FWIW, when I was running errands today I looked at a gas station along the way. $5.08/gal. I'm sure it's less at Costco.

    Around here Walmart and COSTCO are always within a penny from each other and right now are $2.79 a gallon. Most other stations are still around $3.35-$3.50. If it weren't for Illinois taxes, we might be at $2.60 - $2.65.

    I try not to let my truck get to even a half tank as it has the tow package with a 36 gallon tank.
