So how’re gas prices where you live?
I filled up last night at $2.99/gal, but later saw $2.95, and this morning, $2.92. Only about 30 cents more than it was a day or three ago. But I passed a pair of stations with huge lines of cars waiting to fill up at $2.66 (this morning they were up to $2.95), while another station down the road a quarter mile was about $3.20, and this morning I saw another one posting $3.26.
Apparently the folks in the oil industry are in such a tizzy over Katrina, they can’t even figure out how much they should be gouging.
For those of you with a long commute — it won’t do you much good if most of your driving is 10-minute trips — I can highly recommend the Toyota Prius (in the post-2003 version). We get around 51-52 MPG with ours.
