How much is gas in your hood?

Recommended Posts

On the way to work it was $3.62 in Louisville, KY. I did hear that a smaller town about 30 minutes south had it for $3.40 (Bardstown, where bourbon comes from).

 

These prices are killing me! I have 3 delivery vans that cost nearly $100 to fill up and I'm doing it more than once a week. It has also effected my food costs because companies are raising their delivery limits and delivery charges, etc. Most people forget that all of our plastic products - plate, cups, forks, etc are petroleum based products so those are on the rise as well!

We went home this weekend for my bachlorette party and spent $120 in gas. I do have enouhgh for the week now but we have never spent that much money in gas! When I put the initial $80 I thought of all the other things i could do with $80!!!
We have to go to Kansas for FI's brothers wedding at the end of May. Memorial Day weekend so you know the prices will go up even more! It's an 8 hour drive each way and his car is a V-8. It was cheaper for us both to fly Southwest at $300 total than it would have been for us to drive!

I have noticed this too for delivery stuff that comes to our office...Really I noticed when I tried to order an ice cream cake from Carvel. They are about 30 minutes outside the city and Dean LOVES his carvel ace cream cake...fudgy the whale :P but now Fudgy costs almost $50 to deliver frown.gif

$4.04 for premium! We commute 45 mins each way to work too! I noticed on my trip back East last summer that the prices were lower than the West coast. What's up with that?

$3.39 for regular in downtown chicago yesterday. FI is pissed at me for forgetting to fill up the gas tank over the weekend because it just keeps going up here.

It keeps going up here as well but it sounds like we're not doing too bad comparatively. My car is an Acura so it will only run on Premium - here Premium is at $3.81/gal. I think Regular is somewhere around $3.56/gal.

 

Of course this varies WIDELY in and around Dallas. I try to buy my gas out in Arlington right by the college because it is normally about 10 cents cheaper than the equivalent station here in Dallas but right now even those prices are up! Now, if you go to Uptown to buy gas the prices are definitely up to $4/gal. You really have to be conscious about where you buy gas here.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
