I think ours is about $3.00 now.

I just had a total hip replacement and it made it more obvious that the local price of gas (even with discounts) is more of a game, since there is not anything you can do about it than to get a warm feeling after you have used extra gas to get a better price.

Hopefully, in a week or so, I will be driving, so I will have another self-fulfilling game to play.

Dick

Unleaded is temporarily up to $3.19 plus discounts at Costco today. That was in the AM possibly before the reductions away from the "week-ender" jumps.

Now back to driving two weeks after the total hip replacement. I found out that I could have been driving sooner since the choice was up to me (with physicians approval) and could have been doing it a few days ago since I did not have any narcotics.

Great procedure with no pain and minimum of pills and no real discomfort, but only the inconvenience. - Now planning on the total new knee on the other side as soon as possible. I know the rebuild will take an extra hour of surgery, but a lot more recovery/therapy because the new leg will be 1 1/2" longer.

I didn't think gas would be that much higher up there. 4.60 is pretty pricy, I don't think many places are over 4...I could be wrong on that though.

Dropped from $3.29 to as low as $3.15 around here today, mostly $3.19 though.

Venezuelans see cheap fuel as a birthright. Filling up an SUV's tank with high-octane gasoline costs roughly $3 -- less than the price of two jugs of drinking water.

Just found this goody on another site!!
