    Alright Gas prices here just hit $4.00 a gallon again and in Illinois they just hit $4.99! All because of Ike I am definitely going stevetheupsguy's route and riding my nike to work and school this is just ridiculous! What are the prices in your part of the country now thanks.

    3.49 last I got some gas. New Orleans area.
  4. 3.89 here in wv, expect it go up more after the hurricane hits. Good thing the price of oil per barrel is the lowest it has been in about 6 months. I know that price is about 6 weeks out but in 6 weeks do you expect gas to be around 3.10 or so? Nope.

    $3.42 this morning, I just paid $3.95 after going to four gas stations that had already ran out. Heard rumors of five bucks a gallon in other places. People are panicking again and hoarding gas. Gas lines everywhere.

    On april 1st a barrel of oil was $100 and the average gas price was $3.26. It's amazing how it can go up so fast and yet drop so slow. It's all a big scam.

    With 'Ike' happening now, they're talking the possibility of gas doubling quickly.

    Also, they showed some insane people in a waterside bar "drinking through the hurricane". I hope they wrote their names in indelible marker on their arms!! They're nuts !!

    Totally agree with you, why does gas go up so quickly, yet come down slowly? Gas price here in Martin/St Lucie county Florida is avg $3.66gal.
    I'm still getting about 200 miles to the burger!:wink2:

    Yes it is a BIG scam oil dropped yesterday to near $100 a barrel and yet wholesale gas was near $5.00 a gallon I heard thats all ridiculous the oil companies just keep jacking the price up knowing that we will pay it supply and demand if everyone stopped driving so much they price would fall so quickly, I think we should all organize for a no drive day!:wink2:

    You're a few of months late. In May there was the national bike to work week. It's a good time to organize for next year though.

    I can't believe that for once California will have cheaper gas prices than Texas! Probably won't last long. $3.80 - Northern California
