  • I think someone is plotting to make a mass American crazy a Stephen King novel..........
    There is NO excuse..........I'm in Florida and haven't heard (or I'm mentally blocking it) the latest "reason"

  • Its in the $3.20's-30's here in south mississippi. It drops a few cents everyday.

  • Hmmmm, ours has been steadily going down. I got gas today for $3.60 (FL) and a few weeks ago we were up to $3.99.

  • I just filled my gas up for 3.50 something. That is awesome price a day or two ago it was in the upper 3.60s. The excuse it its summer. Gas always sky rockets during the summer.

  • A lot of people do not realize that the devastating flooding and life altering tornadoes have affected, and will affect, our gas prices. Not to mention everything going on in the Mideast that affects the prices.

  • LOL Dahis! yeah, maybe the oil companies are in cahoots w/ the American Heart Assoc- every time you see the price at the pump you are at risk of a heart attack?! -lol- JK -It jumped like over 30 cents a gal in just a day here! Except for it being the 1st of the month- I have no idea-but I am kicking myself for not topping off yesterday!

  • It's been $4+ a gallon here since the first "rise" several months ago.

  • 4.15 here. Part of it is a refinery that had to shut down about a week ago outside Chicago.
