It's $3.13 for regular and $3.03 for unleaded plus aka 10% ethanol blend.

In 1999, my senior year in H.S. I paid $.89 for gas. Man...thats was a fun summer. A $20 bill filled my tank on my car and I still had extra for fun.

Smart man!

I bought a metro-pass for school. 25$ for the month. No parking worries at all.

Food for thought to everyone :

http://www.energy.ca.gov/gasoline/st...tate_2002.html

The average gallon of gas has 42cents a gallon in taxes from state/feds on it. Deduct that tax, and people would be a lot better off.

http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/lis...bal_gasprices/

4.75$/gallon or more in most of Europe. 6.50$/gallon in Amsterdam.

It was brought up and shot down. Same with drilling off the Gulf Coast. I was lead to believe there might be oil under the Rockies, but thats a no-go as well.

So long as we consume foreign oil, we have little to no control of the costs and the markets will determine what we all pay. If OPEC says oil is going for 150$ a barrel tomorrow, we see 8$/gallon ( or whatever price increase comes with it ).

Its not Bush, Not our congress, but our own limiting of our own resources that has caused a good portion of these price increases.

Think Green! Your wallet does!

yeah.. On base its usually around the same as back in the states ( an average i think...) and we can buy gas coupons at aafes so we can get gas off base for the same price on base..

In europe they sell by the liter.. I do believe before I left for here, it was around 2.10+ a liter...

so... There is roughly 3.8L to the 1G, so that comes out to what... almost $8 a gallon... yeah, pretty much it sucks to fill up if you dont have any of the aafes gas coupons

EDIT:

The one good thing about iraq?! Gas is FREE!!!! lol

Oh yeah, its expensive over there... When we were in the UK over Christmas, it was going for 1.15GBP a liter. Which roughly equals $8.70 a gallon with the current exchange rate! But remember, they get much higher Octane gas then we do, and tend to have much more fuel efficient cars...
