$2.099/gal for regular in Walt Disney World (corner of Buena Vista Dr. & Epcot Resorts Blvd.) this morning.

You'd think that with no competition, and the way The Mouse marks everything up, gas would be expensive inside The World. We were surprised that that was the cheapest gas we saw in our travels up I-4 and I-95 today.



It was $1.93 outside of Hollywood studios last week. I was surprised considering how close to the park it was.

Currently $1.849 in the STL suburbs.

Edited for US posters.

Case of crap beer is sub $20 here (bud light, miller lite, etc.).

I'm currently drinking "Schlafly Pumpkin Ale" (8% ABV) which I bought at $33/case at a St. Louis Metro Sam's Club. It helps that the beer was made in STL.

Sick how expensive beer is there, :(

A year ago this month we were taking my
wife's parents out to dinner. In the same
plaza gas was 2.96 with a line out to the
street. We were in her car, so she gave
me her CC and had me get in line to
fill it up with under $3 gas. Today it's
1.86 at the same place.

It just might be anecdotally, but gas seems to always come down as you near a national election cycle. The last time gas got below $2/gallon where I live, it was during the 2008 election cycle.

The US pays per gal, right? That would make local gas be ~$3.52 a gallon. $2.64 per gal with the conversion rate.

One of the companies I work for has some gas stations. They sell about 400,000 gallons a day. I really don't know if margins increase or decrease with lower prices. It would be interesting to know how the pricing models work.

Sadly, I don't get any discounts.

When gas is going up, generally I think they make more money, because as it is going up, I believe that they have cheaper gas than what is being charged for fair market value on site and as it comes back down, they have more expensive gas on site than is fair market value.

I knew a guy in the 80's that had a gas
station and he said he makes the same
per gallon no matter what the price.

You are probably correct if they don't do a lot of volume. Some stations our company has refill the tanks everyday (on some occasions they will get two truckloads in a day).

$1.92 in Atlanta, $1.76 in Warner Robins Ga (central GA on interstate), just over $2.00 in a couple locations in FL, Jacksonville, Port Canaveral.
Talked with a driver at that truck stop in central Ga who was headed to FL from Kansas who said he'd paid in the $1.70s all the way from Kansas.

we are getting remarkably close to the lowest price ever for gas, inflation adjusted

Wall Street Journal has an article about other OPEC members really peeved at Saudis, saying their attempt to throttle other producers is an abject failure. OPEC meeting is coming up.

Gas was regularly (gas wars every month or two) $0.249 in the early to mid seventies in ATL.
Could that be higher than inflated 1998 prices of $1.46 ? Maybe...., but I doubt it. Inflation had some serious ramifications back in those years. Bought my first home at something approximating 14% interest rate. My how the world changes in just a few years....

<edit> current mortgage at 3.37 I think, 15 year about to be paid off. I want to re-finance for another 15. Sparkles wants to be free and clear. I say, but Honey we need the itemized deductions ;-) The tax code is NOT set-up in the favor of recreational gamblers ;-(

For the official price that the site would use to declare an all time low, they have to use some kind of national average? Otherwise we could say we are hitting all time lows in constant dollars.

The price I seem to have heard recently for "the national price" was about $2.25 or similar

Amazing how taxes effect some of us. Got gas at 2.19 today in western PA.

I wonder what the lowest possible price even is. I guess I could look it up, I would assume they show all the taxes somewhere.

PA much higher than everyone else. I guess it is to pay for all the damn bridges we have.

If Indiana has taxes 16 cents below PA, why are we paying 80 cents more?

Not sure about other states, but counties in FL can (and do) add an additional excise tax, which varies county-to-county.
