87 octane - $1.60 in my colorado city.
FYI - the vulcans need 87 gas, lower is not real good, but higher is not a "treat".
With our USA dollar being what it is, I can see $1.29 a gallon, but they are getting stupid with it.

The prices are a biatch, but it's wierd for me: My Duratec gets substantially better gas mileage on 93 than on 87 (this is a problem I'm still trying to work out.) With 93, I'm getting ~15 miles per dollar, while with 87, i'm getting 12.9.

So, I'll just sit back and complain about 25mpg on a 118k Duratec (city/highway, last)

It's around $1.90 on Long Island.

85 cents a liter is about $2.70 a gallon.

It's crazy how much gas is costing over here. If I hit the lotto, I'm gonna open a gas station.

Ditto; NYC is hitting around 1.80 for 87 and nearing $2 for the premium. Hey think of it this way; in Europe they pay around $5 a GALLON.

Thankfully, a European COUNTRY is the size of a typical American STATE. They don't have far to drive, and they have plenty of other transit systems available.

Plus, they all drive UberDiesels getting awesome gas mileage anyway, and it's not hazardous to just walk or bike over there

Not wanting to get into political debate over the subject
(I'll save that for the debate forum) but, it certainly was not the President that caused this...It was simply OPEC (Oil Producing European Countries) that cut their production by something like 25-35% a day, to drive up prices to increase their profit margin.

Please remember that this is only my opinion.


If you would like we can debate this in the debates forum, just post a thread.

Well it goes the other way; the reason diesels are so popular in Europe is due to the high gas prices (high prices ---> need for more efficient engines). And even though one country is the size of a state, most Europeans travel to other countries pretty readily because everyone's so close together (even GB with the tunnel going under the "chunnel"). I'm just trying to say that even though the prices have gotten out of hand by our standards, it could be WAAAY much worse

gas is usually cheaper here than anywhere else, I think its still hanging around 1.65-1.70 for premium. closer to 1.40 for regular. unfortunately this is the one and only advantage to living in this crappy state. this really makes me long for the good old days, back when gas prices dropped like a rock, we were buying gas for 0.82 a gallon about 5 years ago, it was so nice!
