Fuel prices are "cheap" at the moment here too.

I paid AU$1.419 per litre this week, that's A$4.73 per gallon, down from $5.28 per gallon not long ago.

I've been seriously looking at more economical (used) cars lately, although it's hard to justify spending money in the hope of maybe saving money.

I last filled up on the fifteenth and I have gone a little over four hundred miles, with a quarter of a tank left. I have a fifty-cent discount through my supermarket, which is currently charging $2.799. I do not want to blow it and only get seven gallons. If I wait until I need ten gallons, I save five dollars!

So excited over $5...

The nearest Costco is charging $2.599. I do not have any idea how I spent $500 in one month at the supermarket, especially considering that I was out-of-town for a little over a week, purchasing food for my brother and myself from a competitor.

I kind of want to fill up at Costco and save the big discount for the end of next month, but I figure that it really does not matter.

I guess I have fallen to this? Idk, I just don't drive the insight right now because the Mustang has more room, even though I'm only getting 7-9mpg right now for some reason. I cruise at 52-55mph and the EPA highway is 23mpg. Most of my starts are cold starts, but I just don't see how I'm getting so low. Oh well!

Saw gas for 3.15 a gallon. An entire dollar less per gallon than what I payed 3 months ago. Then again I would never run that watered down crap through my engine, but still (Arco).

I've been saying in my group of friends that gas prices are going to go back up so we might as well use the cheap gas to test mods.
I spend something like $.30 a mile for everything, that assumes my car will never roll another mile too.
Getting sensor data off of a pre OBDII Toyota ECU via TDCL.
All of this is on E10: Project E is my current focus.

Doesn't make sense to waste money when you can use the opportunity to save.

I still drive like a Scrooge.

You know you're a hypermiler when you're hoping you'll need gas while the prices are low.

The problem is it takes six or ten of you to make up for one of him.

No comment yet on why gas prices are going down? Is it because nobody has a job? That would mean, here at the begining of the age of robot burger-flippers, that the price will likely continue to decline.
