    Gotta love gas prices

    I'm driving to work this morning and regular gas is $1.82/gallon at all 3 stations I pass. Coming back from lunch around 1pm I drive past those same 3 stations and regular gas is now $2.09/gallon.

    Hmmm, a 27 cent price increase in about 4 hours time. I'm watching CNBC Market Report right now and crude oil is still under $48/barrel and is only up by .10 today.

    There is no price fixing though.

    I feel your pain, I've seen it go up as high as $.38 a gallon in a day lately. The thing is, when it goes down, it doesn't go down as low as it was, and when it goes back up, it goes way higher than before.

    It always goes up when my tanks is low, and the price falls when I am full. I gather from this either my automobile or I wield some control over this. I will try to stop this fluctuation.

    You know it's a sad day when I am turning cartwheels in the parking lot when I see gas is $1.98. What have we come to?

    My girlfriend and I were driving home through central D.C. the other day, and passed a station selling regular unleaded for $3.16 a gallon.

    Screw that.

    I'm thinking regular will be in the $2.30-$2.40/gallon range for Memorial day, they make me sick.

    Re: Gotta love gas prices

    A few local stations here are selling the E85 blend, but I am not sure if my car is compatible, and I really don't feel good about trying it as it is. It is cheaper, but it often causes MPG to decline, so I wonder if the savings are worth it? Even if it is compatible, could there be some risk down the road?

    To be fair, I bought some last night from a station in suburban Maryland for $2.27/gallon. Which still, you know, sucks...but it beats $3.16!

    Kroger is running a deal where if you buy $100 worth of groceries (which we do on almost a daily basis with 3 teens), you get 10 cents off per gallon on your next fillup.

    I filled the van up for $1.73/gallon. Woo.

    We have the same up here with Giant Eagle, except that you get $.10 off for each $50 worth of groceries. My wife and I just let it roll over, so that the other day I filled up for $.37 a gallon. Woo Hoo! I filled up the tank for slightly less than $6.

    Now, if I could get $100 worth of "healthy" groceries (vegetables, fruits, milk, etc.), I'd bite. Like they would let someone do that, there has to be a catch. For a $.10 drop in gasoline? Nah. I'm not that gullible.
