it's in the high 3.80's here for 87. I got a whopping 1.034 gallons for 4.00 for my weed eater.

GOD I'm glad I invested in that Geo Tracker. New spark plugs and I'll be back up to 40mpg again...

Party's over,  just got some at $3.97.

Just got some this morning at $3.83.  I always buy on Monday or Wednesday as in my area these are consistently the lowest days.  I avoid the weekends and Friday if at all possible.

Wow so if you look from when this thread started to now, prices have went up by quite a bit. Im guessing at this speed end of the summer at least 5 possably 6 dollers a gallon. But prices jump on holidays and go down a week later usally so we will see. /looks into buying a bike.

$0.74....  oh wait just got done watching Diehard with Bruce Willis (1988).   They show a gas station in one scene with that price.   You can tell the sign didn't even have a place for $1.xx.   Ah the good ole days!

In Columbia, TN it was 3.999 for regular (no Ethanol).  Last week it was 3.799.  I messed up and had to get gas in the next town over.  Had I been paying attention and gotten it at the Co-Op here in Lewisburg, I could have gotten regular (no E) for 3.849

$4.09 here in NE Indiana, altho it varies a tiny bit depending on area.  NW Indiana is much higher - I think close to $4.54 - due to being an emissions area (I think like Chicago) so a different formula than here.  It seems to go up, then back off a tiny bit.  If I see gas drop, I buy because it is inevitably followed by a 25-cent jump.  It used to take awhile to go up by just a few cents. Now the fluctuations resemble the stock market, spiking up or inching down. 

Shop at Kroger, and get those gas points!  Quadruple points right now if you buy a gift card at Kroger, I think thru April 11th.  I plan to do that, and get $1 off per gallon. The I will max out on the number of gallons I can get by filling up the car and gas cans if need be!

$3.89 with my prepaid card dropped it to $3.79 for my fill up today in Akron, OH

Saw some articles on Google News like this one http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/31/business/global/obama-to-clear-way-to-expand-iranian-oil-sanctions.html

Makes me want to make sure my gas stocks are topped off before this sends gas up again.

I saw $3.76 for regular 87 octane today at Go-Mart in Marietta, Ohio. Marietta, Oh. is about 20 miles away from my home. It's still $3.89 here in my small town though.

Not my part.  That is probably Nome/Kotzebue, where they had that tanker come in.  Fairbanks is $4.25 still.

I got $3.95 with my $0.10 Kroeger discount.  Filled up the cars and a few gallons in cans.
Today coming into work noticed $4.13.
