Gas Prices -- are they bad where you are?

I live in Iowa (right on the Iowa/Nebraska border) and I filled up my Equinox this morning only to look up and see that the little ticker said $39.89. I thought wth.....did I fill up with the car next to me? Gas prices here are $3.19 a gallon. How are they where you are??


But on the bright of my best friends lives in England and they are paying £6.00 a gallon in the UK which =$ 9.76 a gallon!! It costs them over $120.00 to fill up!!!!!!!

  • Yes they are bad!
    Friday morning $3.19
    Friday afternoon $3.25
    Monday morning $3.31
    Monday afternoon $3.36

    I filled up when we were at $3.25. I got down to 3/4 tank yesterday and went ahead and filled back up but yikes. I am looking at having to cancel dance classes for my dd. The drive would cost us about a tank a week.

  • San Diego about $3.73 for regular and $4.09 for diesel. I found a way to save 10% to 25% each time I fill up. You can see it at I have been using it for a year now and it works!
