higher MPG ... higher gas prices!!!
Damn, prices around here are getting CRAZY!!!

Thank God for this website, my average MPG got up but so is gas price. This morning some place in Montreal had 1.534$ per liter :eek:

That's 5.8$ per gal!!!! :mad:

Yersterday average was 1.384$ and today it's 1.499, a rise of 11.5 cents per liter (or 43.5 cents per gal) in one night! WTF?!?!?!

I was just gonna post on gas prices too- $3.99 regular here today, quite the increase in such a short time frame too. :thumbup:

jalmir 09-12-2012 03:39 PM

ha! I dream of 3.99 a gal, that would be around 1.05$ per liter, we didn't saw the equivalent of 3.99$ for a good 3 years now! :(

Must be all that cheap, readily available shale oil?

funny, I bought the cheapest gas I had seen all summer yesterday @ $1.229 /L

I would complain about prices but it is my choice to drive as much as I do and high fuel prices drive advances in fuel economy.

If only americans payed the same progress would be a bit quicker!

$4.12/gal. here, but that's diesel. When gas dropped $.40/gal, diesel dropped $.10. Gas has rebounded $.50 and Diesel $.20. Both fuels that are delivered today were made with fuels that were delivered yesterday. Still amazes me.

winnipeg is still sitting at 1.219/l - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada

I bet if a person went around telling people that someday in the not-too-distant future gas would be $4/gallon at the time when gas was 40cents/gallon, people would have laughed in the person's face as the notion would have been so preposterous.

How about another 10x rise to $40/gallon?

As an aside, G.F.'s kid just got hisself a full-size V8 4x4... for commuting and general tearing around... he's pretty proud of his newly fitted "pipes" too... the price of gas is of no concern, it just is what it is. :rolleyes:

how I wish I could go back to the days when I started driving at 30 something cents a liter!!!

Still remember when gas station had to go over 1$ and add a space on their price board, everybody was freaking out! hahahahaha (crying a little at the same time as laughing)

$3.469 here at Wally World. 15 cents discount if you use their card. I think my last tank on the ibke was $.0375 per mile. The Fiesta is a little more than twice that. I have bought gas for 18 cents a gallon and seen the price at 12.9 cents a gallon.

It cost me 1 cent a mile in 1968 when I was making 65 cents an hour right out of high school at the amusement park.
