How much is gas in your area? Ours had reached an all time high of 3.14 a gallon for regular and 3.43 for premium here in Eugene Oregon. Home of the University of Oregon Ducks. What about you...how much is yours per gallon and how is it affecting you? Thanks!

Well I guess I shouldn't complain about my prices here in VA. I just paid 2.79 here in VA Beach to fill up the other day. I thought it was INSANE. I think it used to be that Georgia had the cheapest gas, but I think that is changing now. I love to take road trips, but gas prices are making it unbearable these days. I hope it goes down soon.

Here in Mercer,Pennsylvania home of me and not much else lol gas prices are 2.89 for regular and 2.99 for premium. It's crazy that prices are so high. It is causing serious problems with our budget. We no longer drive anywhere but to work and church. We no longer eat out and we cancelled our cable tv service.

Here in Old Fort Tennessee gas is $2.78 a gallon.It is ridiculous.I jokingly told my husband we were going to have to invest in a horse and buggy if gas prices keep going up.

Wow! I can't believe its already over 3 dollars in your area, thats just crazy. In my area gas has reached $2.80 average, for regular. I can say its definitly affecting me, it used to take 19-20 dollars to fill up my tank and its 40ish now...so it just doubled. Its taking so much more money out of my pocket that I wish didn't. Gas prices here are supposed to keep going up and hit 3 dollars eventually and I am not looking forward to it.

Yes, the price of gas is running about the same here. I received an e-mail the other day saying if people wouldn't get gas on May 15th that this would make the suppliers think twice about raising their prices. So that is only tomorrow, so is you can join the fight against raising gas prices this might help. Also I received an e-mail saying not to buy gas at Amoco or Mobil since their gas prices are the highest.

Well, the lowest I have seen it around here was $3.09 about a day ago somewhere. But I have seen it around $3.30 a couple of places as well. It is really getting rediculous, and to think that we paid only $2.19 here right around Thanksgiving. This is getting Crazy, and the worse thing yet, is the rumor I heard that prices might be around $4 in a month. I feel this Highway Robbery, and somehow it is time someone should step in.

I know..isn't this price gouging??? I bet we hear that the gas companies made record profits this quarter. Any bets??? It is unreal! I agree that it is time for someone to step in and handle it, but who...it's all government anyway! Thanks for your response.
