Thanks for the link. I had a similar one and lost it. Gas was $2.79 per gal. Saturday. Don't know if price has gone lower. I noticed that Southern States was selling for $.10 per gal. less before price went lower.

Ours are still over $3. :(

I spent $30 on gas the other day, but since the pump read $95 as the previous sale, I didn't feel quite so bad.

Thanks, KK, gas has gone down here, too, I saw that is starts @ $2.27 & goes to $2.90 here, I've gotta find the $2.27 station :thumbsup:

It's $3.21 at the place I usually go. My DH is totally nuts about this whole gas price thing. Last week he was so proud of himself because he found a station where it was only $3.17..... meanwhile, if he really thought it through he'd realized he burned up the savings since the cheaper place is 3 miles away. :rollseyes:

Wow...I thought $2.79 was bad, I'd hate to be paying over $3.

The station I drive by on my way to work was at $3.41 this morning (in downtown Seattle, btw). The place I will actually purchase gas at is in the $3.20s. You can see why DH and I were so happy to find gas for $3.05 when we drove 45 min away to visit our mothers on Sunday. ;)

It's weird how your mind adapts isn't it? Now when I see $3 I think "Wow, that is a good price!" when in reality it's still high!! :shock:

I remember paying 30 cents a gallon when I was in HS...about '69 or '70. :shock:

Remember when it was only about .70 in 1998? Wow! Now I think $2.72 is cheap! :roflhard: :( :roflhard: You just have to laugh about it, huh?

I'm in Renton and it's still hovering around 3.15 here. I was in Seattle last week and saw one station for 3.48 - I almost couldn't believe it. :(

Saw it for $2.69 today in Stephens City and they pump your gas for you. Hope it will be that price or lower when I need gas next week.

Just saw this headline and had to laugh

Boy, you people who get to may $2.72 are lucky! Gas is $3.00 here, but we don't have it as bad as the UK.

Gas is over $3 here in Portland. And they say its gonna be higher this summer :doh: So now everyone's afraid to fly and they can't drive anywhere cuz gas is too expensive. We're not going anywhere this summer!!!
