Gallon.

We'd all have keeled over already if it was per liter.

Holy shit - the Citgo station near my apartment was $4.03 when I went to work yesterday morning, and $4.13 when I came home around midnight. Yoinks.

Well sounds like what my sster said wasn't true then, or no one's noticed.

According to her, they finally did get rid of the gas tax

It's anywhere between $4.25 and $4.60 in the greater Stamford, CT area.

I love that the no matter the price, the higher grade stuff is only 10 cents more expensive.

I swear the price increased at the Shell station up the street from when I passed it on the way to the post office till re-tracing my route back home.

Some people will tell you the higher grade gas is better for the car's engine. I never use anything but the regular unleaded.

I think it would have been much bigger news if they'd actually suspended the gas tax, and there'd have been a drop in gas prices already.

Friday morning, the nearest station regular unleaded was 4.03. Friday night: 4.13. Sunday morning: 4.19. Sheesh. It's definitely been creeping up more frequently around here than it did even just a few weeks ago, when it hovered just below 4.00 for at least a week or two.

It's best to use the type of gas that's mentioned in your car's manual.

The rate of increase is getting out of hand. I just don't get it.

Gas Prices have traditionally increased after Memorial Day. This latest increase might be apart of that.

I realize that prices increase after Memorial Day. But they've practically gone up an entire dollar. It's unacceptable ,and frustrating that it seems there's just nothing we can possibly do about it.

I'm very grateful that my commute allows me to easily take the bus, and that my workplace subsidizes the annual bus pass. Most weeks, I don't even use my car until the weekends, and even then not that often.

this is true...we have to use the 89 or above which is about 10 cents more per gallon than the 87...if we use 87, our engine knocks and the check engine light comes on
