    Just filled up with regular at a Murphy's in Round Rock for $1.619/gallon. That's about the bottom end of prices there; $1.659 is more common, but the majority is over $1.70, and in smaller towns, over $1.80. According to gasbuddy, the HEB where I filled up in Bryan the other day for $1.609 is now $1.789; lowest in town is reportedly Murphy's, at $1.729.

    Man, you guys are killing me. I was in Alabama a couple of weeks ago and average there was $1.75. Cost of living in FL is high, people. DO NOT MOVE HERE UNLESS YOU HAVE DEEP POCKETS.

    No doubt, but the Government recently commissioned an investigation into gas prices here, and, shock, horror, disbelief, just before the findings were released, prices dropped from around $2.24 per litre to what we're paying now.

    It is always surprising how things get adjusted just before an audit.

    Odd... We didn't see the usual holiday price jump. We've been steady at $1.97.

    Pennsylvania has a very unfair gasoline tax. The gas tax partially funds the Pennsylvania State Police, which is fine. However, many localities choose to use the PA State Police instead of creating a local agency. These localities don't have to pay extra to the state. Those of us living in areas with our own police force subsidize the other localities.

    When I had land in West Virginia, I always bought my gas in West Virginia or Ohio when I traveled. I sold that land and the camper on it earlier this year. And around the end of this month, my Pennsylvania hose will be sold. I'll be a Georgia resident again, with the lower gas tax there.

    We've made a couple of trips to Buffalo (have a few cousins there). We usually refueled in Du Bois as a full tank in my Ram was borderline getting all the way to Buffalo - it would probably be running on fumes. Trouble is MD and NY taxes are almost as bad as PA. Best I could do would be to top off just before leaving VA, but I would still have to fill up in NY before returning home.

    From Texas to Michigan Monday and yesterday, the lowest I paid for regular was $1.609 in Tyler, Tx, and the highest was $1.719 in Hanson, Ky. Arrived in Indy just in time for a local price war, when 2 stations on W. 10th west of the loop dropped to $1.629. It was $1.679 in Toledo, so I filled up there rather than in Detroit's western suburbs, which generally remain 30 cents/gallon higher at their lowest, though more of them are under $2. Just checked Toledo, where prices at many stations along Alexis are at least a quarter/gallon higher than yesterday. Prices are reportedly set to rise to a similar level in Indy.

    At the station in Tyler, diesel was only a nickel per gallon higher than regular. The start of a trend, or an aberration? Everywhere else I looked, diesel was from 30 to 60 cents per gallon higher than regular.

    Within 2 miles of the house, prices are $1.99-$2.05 for 87 octane. Mid-grade (89 octane) is $2.30-$2.41.
