$4.39/gallon.

It's a good thing I don't drive, as Maruchan Ramen noodles have remained at 15 cents a pack for quite some time.

I think it's $4.03/gallon for 87 octane (or that is the state average, as per the news last night). I run diesel, which was $4.82 when I filled up this past weekend.

Close to $2 a liter for diesel. We have a car, but it has amazing fuel economy, and we don't drive a lot. We fill it up around once ever three months.

we've been lingering just below $4 here for awhile.
if you cross over to the 'other' side of the river (aka, sconnie) it jumps to about .20 more/gal.

When I rode to work yesterday (3 miles), past 4 gas stations (they are all close together), they ranged from 4.07 to 4.27 for the cheap stuff.

I have a 2001 Subaru Outback (paid for) but I try to walk or ride my bike most days.

$4.25 for 87 grade (cheap unleaded)

I recently sold my house, moved to the city I work in, and started riding to work.

I have no idea. I just put gas into my car whenever I need it, which is about 2 times per month, if that.

So, I put "other."

$4.29 for regular here, $5 for diesel...Chicago area, outside the city - gas is probably $5 in there. I'm about 40 miles out.
