My heart bleeds for you. :p I hit $45 all the time for 16 gallons (yes, I am afraid to let it get empty as it seems to use a quarter tank every time you start it).

Oh, and the best I can get is 91. So my hear REALLY bleeds for you.

My heart bleeds for you. I paid $2.89 per gallon the other day. Do the math @ 16.3 gallons that is $47.11.

Most of us here in CA are spending $2.59 or more per gallon for 91 octane.

But, it is WELL worth it. VEE POWER ROCKS

Well, I have you all beat. Where I live, in the Hamptons of Long Island NY. I am paying $3.19 a gallon and with my 20 gallon fuel tank on my 96 Deville it is insane $62.00 to fill 'er up. I could care less, it's a Caddy !!

We have a station here in SF which has $3.5x for 87, and $6.15 for both 89 and 91.

And yes that's in US gallons, been that way for weeks, and yes there are customers (occasionally).

~$45 is the norm for my V.

I buy Shell V-Tech in Ashland, Oregon which is $2.88 to $2.97 a gallon. $45.00 to $52.00 being the highest I've paid for a fill up. Oregon gas prices suck. I'm not sure why. I find I'm using 6th gear more often on the highway these days. Filling up every three to five days is getting old. (but well worth it) ;)

Not to threadjack, but is there any point in using 100 octane--even at the track. I've been told it's a waste of money.

Just climbing on the soap box.


From the business side, there may be no major resistance until $75/barrel. And with tight refining capacity, $3/gallon will seem cheap. Especially on the left coast.

My turn on the soapbox. Did we not just take over the second largest known OIL RESERVES in the world a couple of years ago? Where oh where might that be going? Refinery capacity? Sounds good to me, just say we can only do so much and there you have it! Can anyone say "Oil administration" and "Huge oil company profits" in the same breath? The reason we pay so much in California is additional taxes for our "clean air" and to "fix and build new roads", makes you wonder whats going on:crying:

Ok, now I will step down.

funny thing is the US still lags most other countries in gas prices.....I know I paid about 4$/gal in Japan and in Europe. I don't think we're ever coming back to the 87cents/gallon days I remember of just a few years ago.

Fill ups on my cars in Tokyo were over $100.....what a killer that was.

I don't know where you can get 100 and 104 from public pumps but in western PA you can buy those two grades in 55 gallon drums.

When I worked for Sunoco, they produced their race fuels in Marcus Hook. I would think that you can find someone in your area to sell you race fuels. Plan on paying much more than for pump gas.

There is good news under this story. First of all, by measurement of inflation-adjustment, gas was just under $3 per gallon in 1980, so we are not really at an all-time high. Second, if the market is allowed to adjust to supply and demand (despite what appears at times to be collusion), we will have plenty of gas available. Those of us driving back in 1974 remember what an nightmare that was. Third, as a percentage of your spendable income, I still believe gasoline is a good deal. If you choose to drive a Suburban or Winnebago, this is part of operating expenses. Overall there still appears to be plenty of petroleum in the ground for centuries to come from what I read. Cars continue to burn cleaner as well.

I ran some numbers.....in the end the gas cost premium of driving a v8 (compared to smaller engine cars) is minimal....well worth the small difference I think.

It was 3.25 for Premium at Chevron 91 yest, not sure bout today. Had our company fuel tank filled, 700 gallons for a nice bill of 2k. :( BTW thats a weekly bill too.) They were going to wait till next wed to fill it (wonder why) but I insisted they come yest. I can just see a nice 30 cent rise by next week at this rate. (was about 60 cents cheaper a month ago)

Not only do you get screwed by the gas pump, but also when service businesses need to raise prices to cover fuel costs. :(

The price will come down. It always has.


I've lived through several gasoline cycles and we all survived.
If you listen to the media, the world ends every day with every story.

At $70 per bbl, they will be putting holes all over the earth to get more. It just takes time. In the mean while, our government allows the oil industry to gouge the consumer and so they do it.

If you have the cash, now is the time to look at the boat you always wanted. Contrarians always do well.

Forget that! I paid for 400hp and I want 400hp. That only saves you around $2 a fill up anyways. That won't even pay for 1/2 gallon of gas in some places. At the end of the month you may have saved enough for a cheap lunch.

That is great. I only drive around 18k a year but a lot of mountain driving. Maybe in 50k you'll have enough savings to buy a couple tanks of gas. Regardless, I wouldn't want to take a chance about Cadillac denying a warranty claim because I didn't use premium.

That works out to $625.00 of savings over 50K miles assuming 16 mpg and premium being $0.20 per gal more than regular. For me it only works out to be about $125 a year so I wll always use premium.

I also read there is a pipe from Houston to NJ that was reopened at 40% capacity thursday. If that didn't start, the lack of oil around here would of shot it to $5-$6 a gallon by the end of the weekend.:duck: We dodged a bullet.
