National average is about $2.07 a gallon. It is somewhat cheaper in the southern states due to lower taxes, but not much.

And before everyone starts complaining about how exspensive gasoline is, just remember the prices are high because of huge demand and limited supply, not because the "oil companies are trying to screw us."

Oh the rationing days of yesteryear, I think that was when "gas rage" was started.

Who could forget waiting in line?
For hours I might add.........

No doubt supply and demand is at work here but so are record profits for oil companies. So maybe its a little of both.
Some companies up here getting 65 cents a miles for service trucks

"How many of you out there remmember the "odd even days"?"

I didn't have a licence, or a car, I was a little kid, 6 years old I think, and had a favorite tee-shirt that said, "Im odd" on front, and "Im even" on back.

Wasn't until many years later that I got the joke.

Sw Fla is $1.219-$1.249 today based on a drive from Estero to downtown Ft Myers. Hess US41 SFMY said gas was $2.199 but they didn't have any regular to sell at that price.

Just hit $6 a gallon here.

British taxation hasn't changed much since the days of the Boston Tea Party.
