Anybody else tired of the high price of gas these days? I know we have cheaper prices than most of Europe and the Caribbean, but DAMN! Gas is expensive these days. I saw a gas station today selling regular unleaded for $2.98 per gallon! Now I ask you...price gouging or not?

CA has a high gas tax too, right? I think I remember hearing something like .18 cents per gallon? And WTF are the CA politicians thinking trying to tax people for each mile they drive? I hope that crap doesn't pass legislation! I don't live in CA, but if it passed it would just be a matter of time before other states adopted the same law. It's a crock!

Gas is fuct out here we pay up the ass! The cheapest is around $2.19 right now. But when prices go up they sky rocket! I went to Colorado 2 months ago and the average price was about .25 cents cheaper. and yes the state tax is .18 cents on the gallon.

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch...

Jeez, have a friggin' whinge! Wait about six months and you'll get cheap prices because you invaded Iraq! That's why you voted for Bush, for cheap oil. So wait, and it will eventually come. :mfinger:

I just paid 1.92 today. That's really high around here. MN is pretty good for gas prices. The most it usually is is about 1.82-1.83

Sure it 'll go down a bit .25-.30 cents, then it'll shoot up .50-.60 cents.

Damn...I thought the gas prices were better than that in Canada! Last time I was there (which was 9 years ago) it wasn't too bad...but then again we could buy gas here for about .95 cents per gallon back then!
