You sure that's not $4.69? $3.69 would be rubbing it in too.

So far $4.39 locally in Anaheim, CA.

Gas prices are slowly catching up. Last week they were $3.79 for premium, now it's $3.89-$3.99.

It's up to $4.099 at the corner of Carson and William. Has been for a few days. The "cheap" place up the road is up to $4.029. Bently Biofuels in Minden was still at $3.849 on Saturday when I spent $75 to fill up the 240.

I filled up at 4.39 last night ... $70 tank. The only positive was that it was an Exxon station, and Exxon makes stupid liberals angry. I like making stupid liberals angry, too, so I felt I was making some sort of positive contribution to mankind.

Hard times ahead ... at this point I don't even complain about it ... just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I passed a station with $4.69 ... that's the highest I've seen.

Station in Charles Town, WV on Rt 340
Citgo -- $4.32 up from $4.19 that morning and me with a 1/2 tank did NOT stop

I was hoping it would be cheaper in NJ when I head to NY tomorrow. I was going to bring up my four 5 gallon jerry cans and fill up

yeah, I know I am rubbing it in... that's the point right
and yes, that is the correct price. I have a border state pair of stations that have constant price wars... usually the best prices around.
in charlotte, D is anywhere from 3.96 to 4.39... but SC has 24 cents lower taxes and the border stations just love to take advantage of it...
