    Too GD much!!!! $2.45 as of Sunday. I have been scared to look at the signs since, but I'm going to have to stop for fuel either today or tomorrow for mowing on tomorrow.

    I just paid 95.5 cents a Litre today! Do the math on that. 3.5 Liters in a US Gallon, that puts it at $3.34 per US Gallon. Then add the exchange at $1.20 and that brings it to a WHOPPING $4.01 PER GALLON.

    Last week I saw diesel at 2.54 at on place 15 miles down the road at a truck stop it was 2.09 I got it at the truck stop. Gas was 2.19

    Figure that out.

    These gas companies are rebuilding stations in our area. and building completly new ones on every block. They say that gas is in short supply it BS they are just linning their pockets and I am tried of this Bush presidency It been H E double hockey sticks he the one that needs empeached.

    The way to stop this crap it to go over and level IRAQ and IRAN and fix this problem.

    $2.19 for 87 oct, this was at the local QT which is usually the cheapest around here. looking at some of you in other parts i feel pretty good.

    i think it will drop...eventually....back in May i was thinking it may get back down around 1.65 - 1.75, now....i'm thinking 1.80 - 1.90....i'm at least hoping. :dizzy:
