Wow, been while since the last post in here.

Did a quick road trip this fall, and saw prices from here in Idaho hovering around $2.45, all the way down to $1.89 in MN and the Dakotas.

Now, we are just barely above $2.00 around here, and dropping quickly.

Drove into Eastern WA today (Spokane). On the ID side of the border it was $2.09. On the WA side just a few miles away it was around $2.40.

Here in San Diego the gas prices have pretty much been stable at $3.00 per gallon for the cheap stuff. Give or take a dime or two depending on which brand you buy. It been this way through most of Covid.

Equivalent of $6.10 a gallon in the UK at the moment. :cry:

3.69 a Gallon for 87 Octane Santa Rosa Calif. I usually try to not look at the price of fuel when I fill up :?

$1.98/gallon for 87 octane here in Graham, TX

We were at $1.86 to $1.99 depending on the county (Atlanta Metro) but for the last week every station within 90 miles in any direction it’s at $2.09.
They must have all been at the same meeting.

Don't know what they did to the gas here , but mileage is down 25%

There are different Summer and Winter “Blends” but I have no idea what that means.
The conspiracy theorist in me thinks it’s all an attempt to persuade us to stay home.

Off the topic but you can Google Summer and Winter Blends and it is explained in detail.

Gasoline still at 1.79 here at Costco in flyover country. 😀

The average price in 1975? 0.34 cents a gallon.

Nice mustang fastback.

What would that .34 cents be when calculated for inflation? Two bucks or so? I admit I am not smart enough to figure that one out.

I only use premium. so...it's expensive. why bother to look at the price. it's sad that my modern 10.4 cr 2.4 light weight roadster gets about 8 mpg less than my bug did...and feels like half the hp too :shock: only gm could fuck up that bad. I should put a honda motor in it. :wink: or better yet a turbo...but thats too much like work.

Inflation calculator says it's.... $1.64 in 2020 dollars

1975 is a bad year to discuss gas prices as it was very volatile

Two historical peaks in gas prices in constant dollars, one in 1980 and one in 2013, both about $3 a gallon on today’s money

The cost of transportation fuel per household is at a historic low due to gains in fuel efficiency, we pay less to get around than in any other time in history.

1.92 a gallon here in LA, lower Alabama, is the cheapest, generally 1.95-2.02 in the area.

I recall seeing $1.89 in NOLA two years ago while visiting. Could not believe my eyes.
