      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!

            $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.
