Where I live, it's $3.75.

I thought it would be interesting to look at prices with all this stuff going on over in the Middle East.

I heard a gas station owner say in an interview, no, they're not paying a higher price for gas YET, but they anticipate a higher price and need to have the cash-on-hand right away to pay for it, so they raise the prices right away. I don't know if I buy that or not, but I have heard of other businesses doing that, especially financial services (in anticipation of inflation, etc.).

It just jumped up a dime yesterday, from $2.99 to $3.09. If you want to find the cheapest gas where you live, a good website is:

$3.30 in W MI. Why post how much it is if you don't say where you live.

£1.35 per litre in the UK where I live. That's about $2.50 per litre or $9.50 per US gallon.

Cigarettes are around $9.50 a pack of 20.

If you smoke and drive a big car then you had better be on a good income :-)

Americans are so spoiled. We may have been a Superpower for much of the 20th Century, but we're on the way down right now. For all you people here in the States who are whining that gas is $3.50/gal....read the quote above. We've been paying a great price for so long compared to the rest of the world.

I moved from Seattle area in 2009, where recycling and Priuses were the norm, to Las Vegas, where I've never seen so many Hummers and high-end Benzes in my life, and no one recycles anything. 911s are dime a dozen here. Today, gas is $3.30 for reg unleaded. Get used to it peeps; it's never gonna be $2 again.

I looked yesterday at prices around the area (southwest of Houston). Most places were up a dime over the day before ($2.95 to $3.05 was pretty standard).

In the NE the Best is Citgo and Irving. But about 3.30.
I have a Prius and I can get shocked at the fluctuation between fill ups.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.
