    I luckily have a short commute, maybe 4.5 miles wach way. I fill it up on payday every two weeks, usually about 3/4 of a tank.

    girlfriend has a 50 mile commute each way so its a significant expense for her.

    wow. since then, new job and she went to a 70 mile commute, half driving, half train, subway to Philadelphia. recently she switching offices to Delaware, a 43 mile drive.

    and my commute almost doubled. :fp:

    I-5 the entire drive, everyday. The jobsite said "we don't need you here full time until June"...apparently it's 'June' already.

    At least all the miles are going on the company car. :lol:

    it is nice driving some distance to/from work. decompression time whilst driving is fabulous. cd player going. for some people the joint has been smoked or is being.

    life is good.

    i used to drive 220 miles to get my truck if i did not bring it home. i did this a lot. almost the entire length of washington state.

    I learned this week that gas prices tend to follow copper price trends. And the price of copper is going down :)

    I was very excited yesterday to only pay $3.19 per gallon. It's sad that we get excited about prices like that, but I honestly can't remember the last time it was so low.

    $4.50 a gallon here in NS (1.20 per litre).
    Lowest it's been in a year I think. 2 weeks ago it was 1.33 per litre ($5 per gallon).

    $2.96 here in the mountains of western Maryland. It hasn't been below $3 here since 2009!

    I was finally able to only have to cough up $2.99/gal!

    We pay per litre which in NZD$2.08 per litre, which works out at USD$7.08 per gallon. I downsized my car this year - to fill from empty it costs me $75 (NZ) about $68 US

    Just paid $2.55 Filled my prius for $22. I'll get 48mpg so won't need to fill again until next weekend.

    What do you all do with your extra pocket money when gas is cheap? My hubs owns a pizzeria and we really notice a surge in business when gas prices are low. Seems jerseyans buy more pizza when it costs less to stand and idle in traffic on the way to work.

    I paid $2.45 regular gas to fill up yesterday. It was great not to spend over $50 at the pump. I hope this downward trend continues.

    The cheapest gas in the country somewhere in Arizona $1.99 a gallon regular. Outstanding.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it usually mean that when gas prices are low (and people get excited) that the economy is likely headed downwards, jobs are going to be cut, wages are going to be cut, and you won't have any money anyways... ie, LOW GAS PRICES ARE NOT GOOD?!?! So you lose your job (Say you made $1000/cheque) or your wage goes down (say it goes down by $500 / month) and your property taxes go up (say $500 a year) and you save $20 when you fill your car. How is that something to get amped over? I thought that when gas prices are low, we ought to be freakishly careful with our money because the economy is likely headed into the tank for a while. Am I out to lunch? (errrr.. am I not going to eat this homemade sandwich cuz I can't afford lunch)...?

    Not necessarily. Gas pricing is worked out on the speculative market so prices fluctuate constantly and can be driven up or down with rumours, weather conditions and many other factors.

    Prices here in New Zealand have finally dropped from NZD$2.08 (USD$7.08) at the end of November to NZD$1.99 per litre (USD$6 per gallon) which has a positive flow on effect for our economy, especially this close to Christmas.

    I don't know how it is in the rest of the world but conspiracy theory here is that all oil companies work together to price fix because all stations have the same pricing all of the time. The pricing differs between towns but within 1 town or city all pricing is the same.

    They just added a $0.07/gallon tax on gas today. To help pay for transportation and road improvements. All of our gas taxes are supposed to pay for that shit-and we have some if the highest gas prices in the nation. if you've driven here, you know all those taxes are wasted on 'who knows what, bacause it certainly isn't road improvements or transportation'

    I would be totally for this: Raise gas prices and use the money to develop alternatives. Our cheap gas prices are only going lead people to drive more and you know the rest of the story.
