Well, I can remember in 74 when I bought my bran spankin new Mustang11 (yes, it was a V6) :smile: it took only $5.00 to fill the tank! I also remember going to the gas station and only putting $2.00 in and it would last several days! It's just easy to remember what gas used to be a gallon and what it is now.

I just filled up the "other" Ford here and paid 44.4 cents/litre. I hope my math is close but I figure the equivalent would be $1.07 US per US gallon. We are in the heart of oil production and I thought the 44.4 price was fantastic. However, it appears things are a little better elsewhere. The problem here is the fact that most of the price we pay at the pump is made up of government tax. Hope the lower prices last for a while.

Gas here in the Seattle area is still around $1.35 - $1.45. It sickens me to see other areas with much cheaper gas. Must be a supply & demand issue. :sad:

Around here in Massachusetts, the lowest I have seen is 104.9 for 87. :sad:

I've seen 89.9 at a couple of RaceTrac stores, and I've been paying 92.9 at Chevron.

Yeah, gas prices have been dropping some here recently.. where my mom works (about 45 mins away from here) she was buying it for 82.9 there for a while. Amazing.

It's messed up here in Chicagoland... I saw $1.599/gal for 87-octane on Friday 12/14 at one Shell in the city. (The prices at that station were 1.599/1.699/1.799!) Got out to the burbs (Schaumburg) and saw $1.059/gal at a Shell there... (The City of Chicago levies a 5c/gal tax above all other surcharges, but that still doesn't really explain most of the other 49c/gal!)

On the other hand, gas prices have collapsed here since recovering from a mid-August refinery explosion. Labor Day weekend Chicagoland had $2/gal (87-octane) gas!

Here where I live in Georgia, .69, .79, .89 per gallon for each grade, but it is starting to creep back up again little by little.

Hey Bulittt, I thought that it takes 4 1/2 litres to make a US gallon? That would be more than $1.07/gallon. Just wondering if I've been figuring it wrong. I lived in Ontario for 4 years, and visit every once in a while. I always drive away from Canadian stations feeling like I just gave blood or something, it is so expensive. :sad:

I figured it out this way:

.444 X 3.7854118 = 1.68 Canadian for every US gallon

Using a conversion rate of 1.56 for Canadian to American

1.68 / 1.56 = 1.07 US for every US gallon

Hope I am right... could be embarrassing!

Bob
