Gas Prices

San Francisco Bay Area: Absolute least expensive is the Jackson Street Valero in Hayward @ 2.15 reg, 2.25 mid and 2.35 sup. Every other station is at least .08 more per gallon -- with the branded outfits like Chevron .16 more. What are you folks seeing out there?

Filled-up with Chevron 93 last weekend at $1.99/gal.; it's up to $2.13/gal as of last night! Any guess as to how high gas will go?

93 octane is starting to top $2.00 a gallon but 87 is still below by a little.

I don't really care about gas prices so much. If I did, I wouldn't have bought my GTO.

I agree, however my problem is that I am filling completely up every 3 days. Might be sleeping at the office if prices flirt with $3.00.

93: 2.36/gallon

Didn't I read in the owners manual that I can combine 2 parts of luke warm goats milk with 3 parts 93 to make a "get-by" substitute?

The lowest priced 93 octane I saw today was $1.99. Most stations are about $2.09 here in Northwest Austin, Anderson Mill Rd & RR 620 for $1.99.

Typical gas price hike for this time of year. People start driving more when the weather is nice, so prices go up for the higher demand.

Many of the stations around here in PA didn't price regular 87 over 2 bucks during the last price hikes - they'd go to 1.99 and no higher (sort of a psychological thing I guess), but a bunch of them are going over that now. And they were just at 1.83 for regular about a week or two ago.
