    Couple of years ago US gas was half the price of here!

    I saw $1.29 last week for a liter, but I calculated the gallon cost at $1.35, as that's more average. Can be up to $1.50 but the station is usually empty.

    $US 4.50/gal here ($1.19/litre). At least the dollars are on par to make the conversion easier!

    Just a shade over $10 a gallon here at the moment. Then again we have free health care, you win some, you lose some, it all evens out in the end.

    Yeah, well you probably need the health care to take care of the lump on your head after passing out at the cost of a full tank!

    The last time I checked, regular unleaded was about $3.50/gallon around here. Unfortunately, my truck is a Diesel and my car requires 92 octane, so I never think about the cost. I just grit my teeth and pump the fuel.

    At this point I would gladly pay $2.99 and smile about it. We're still at $3.49 a gallon and that's as cheap as it seems to get.

    I saw a sign for 3.35 and went back with the motor home.

    Now, THAT got scary REAL quick!

    I'm not planning on going anywhere, but if things get mean out there, I'll at least have gas.

    My mechanic replaced the electric fuel pump at the tank a while back and I had him TEE off of the main line with a hose and a valve.

    All I have to do is pull a family vehicle up next to the motorhomes right rear tire, pull out the branch hose and fill er up!

    Wages have gone up as well, but I think the cost of living increases through the years have been greater. When I got my first job in 1985, the minimum wage was $3.35/hour.

    Well you all can thank me for the low price gas.
    I knew when the oil company pulled the internet out of my camp shack it would lead to lower prices at the pump.

    But you better fill up before they see I've been over charging them ever since. :D
