    Kermy,
    That is what it was a week ago here. Maybe you will be down in the low 2.40s next week.

    I know how you feel, Kermy. I live in Western Washington and it's just as high, if not higher.

    It's down to $1.96 here in Southern NJ...but it's almost election time so that probably explains the drop in prices.

    I stopped complaining about gas prices a long (loooong) time ago! The price that we pay for the gas in the U.S. is still heck of a lot cheaper, compared to other countires.

    On my trip to Quebec City last summer, for example, I was shocked to find out that I had to pay $1.69 per liter at the gas station. There's 4 liters to a gallon ... you do the math, and that should give you an idea how much you're paying for gas ... the exchange rate between the U.S. and Canadian currency isn't going to help you either. When I finally crossed the border back to the states, I was thankful to have full tank of gas -- even at $2.89 per gallon (at that time)!

    today thanks to Kroger and their "plus card" savings of 10 cents a gallon I managed to get gas for 1.99 a gallon.. was 27.00 to fill up but I have a 2004 camry so that means I will get around 450 miles or more on this tank

    Hubby got up early this morning and went to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (while his lazy wife slept in). He got gas there for $1.89 a gallon!

    In Western Australia (down south) it is about $1.19AUD for a litre. However in perth it's rumoured to come down to about $1 a litre soon. It has been as high as 1.30 and 1.40 dollars a litre, that was downright ridiculous aswell
