So I've noticed that in the course of the past weekend gas prices went up by about 4-5 cents in my area. Currently it is around $3.84. Looks like we might be heading towards another spike in gas prices like a few years back, not exactly good signs for the summer tourist season at the state parks in New York which are already hurting from budget cuts.

Funny how I didn't even realize how high they are at the moment. When they creep up slowly, nobody notices. Or at least I didn't. I remember being beyond pained to see gasoline so close to $4 a gallon awhile back, and now it's $3.46, and I'm not complaining! Those sneaky $#!@%! Evil or Very Mad

There was a big hullaballoo over here when petrol prices surpassed the 1 mark, and now they're roughly 1.30. It's funny, but it doesn't seem like much, but when you add it all up, it's quite surprising how much those few pennies cost.

I think gas prices were $3.49 this morning. They've been in the $3.50 range lately.

Yeah, its actually rather interesting to look at the start of the thread where we all were going crazy about such high prices. Not that we're pleased with current prices but that we're just resigned to our fate of having to pay close to $4 a gallon.

I take it you haven't had to resume sacrificing luxuries like coffee to pay for gas these days as you did about 3 years ago?

Wow so in one week prices have gone from 3.84 up to 3.91 now. I guess that means we'll hit $4+ dollars a gallon here by the end of the month. Crying or Very sad

We never did hit $4 a gallon last time. It literally stopped at $3.99 and then went back down. This is going to be a sad day. Sad

I've seen $4.49 for regular near the airport here. Evidently, there's a gas station charging $4.95 according to a website that tracks gas prices in San Diego.

We've hit 4.35 - 4.40 around here recently. Sometimes a little higher even, but I haven't seen below 4.35 in a long time.

Oops, major typo. I put 4 instead of 3 for all of those prices. Dream's post had me thinking 4. Embarassed
