    What is the price of gas where you live ???

    The gas prices sure are high lately, here it cost 80 cents per litre, if you fill your tank twice a week, you will be broke in no time. I can't wait for summer to arrive so I can cycle and laugh at those who pay those prices. Also public transit is a joke as well, $1.75 per trip. My bike cost me 0$ to ride.

    Price around here is $2 a gallon.. if my math is correct that is just slightly higher then you. I know it cost me $30 to fill the gas tank in my car the other day.

    I laugh at them as I ride in the winter... oh wait... perhaps it's the other way around! In the last 5 months I've spent $10 bucks on gas. Once I start driving my car in the spring (recreational driving only) it will go up to about $40 a month.

    BTW: 81.9C/Liter here in Regina.

    It is 81.2 here in Toronto. I'll find out the Montreal price this weekend. It should be higher.

    It was $1.59/gallon when I filled up at lunchtime. An hour later, I was headed out for a meeting & I noticed that prices were up to $1.79 a gallon! That's a 20 cent increase within an hour! I'm glad that I only need to fill up the ol' gas tank once every 2 or 3 weeks.

    It's over USD$2/gal for me but I'm not concerned since I've only been filling up once every month. My real concern is not driving enough and having the battery deep-discharge. I've switched to deep-cycle on my Jeep because I've already ruined one battery.

    On the plus side, I saw in a TV interview where they were asking some locals what they'll do if gas prices continue to rise and some of them actually said they'd start riding their bikes.

    You could try a solar trickle charger to keep the battery from going flat.

    I don't like paying $2.14 for premium here in So Ca...but, I understand it. What's frustrating though is CA pays substancially more then most other parts of the country.

    I guess I could do that and keep the Jeep out in the driveway. I usually keep it in the garage. Perhaps I should attach a dynamo to my trainer's flywheel. |8^)

    From 85¢ to 89¢ CDN a liter in Montreal, depending on where in the city and what day of the week. It usually goes up on wenesday evening. Go figure... it's payday and everyone fills their tank.

    Here in New England the prices fluctuate almost hourly from $1.46 to $1.60 for the cheap stuff. Going to school and hockey practice I run about $10-$15 a week. It's too bad that I can't haul my hockey equipment on the bike.

    That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    I think you can attribute your higher costs due to California's more stringent anti-pollution regulations, and their effect on what additives or lack their of goes into your gas.

    It's too bad those additives do as much if not more harm to the environment than what they were meant to prevent.

    I dunno. I haven't had to buy any lately. Haven't gone by a gas station in the last week, either. I'm sure I'll get sticker shock next time I tank up.

    I paid $2.09 for regular the other day... sucks all over... my company is supposed to move in June or so.. probably a lot closer to me... I'd bike commute now, but at 30 miles each way... it's a little tough...

    67.5 cents/litre for regular in Calgary.

    And, with daytime highs of -25c (-35c with the windchill), I'm thankful I can afford to carpool to work. Call me a wimp, but this weather is not conducive to bike riding especiallly with the amount of ice and snow on the roads.

    It's around a dollar per litre here in Perth but it has been up to around $1.10 recently and it's likely to head that way again soon.

    Gee I'm glad I ride a bike. There's not way our family could sustain 2 cars.
