That's a really good price for premium gas. Here regular is $2.19 a gallon and premium is 50 cents higher.

They're really gouging locally and I'm not sure why. Regular is $2.29 to $2.49 and most stations are getting $.90 to $1.00 additional for premium (and most is only 92 octane). Indiana just recently put a new gas tax into effect and I think they're taking advantage of it...

I was thinking the other day that I'm quite pleased about the low gas prices, as likely most are. My oldest nephew has my 13 year old gas guzzling SUV, and just left to college with it. The last thing a poor college student needs is spending the little free money he has on fill ups.

Regardless of price range, when you consider the expenditure involved from locating oil through final retail sale, gas is cheap compared to what fools spend for bottled water.

Yes, it's tough to hear some of these gas prices above.

Well, I guess PA doesn't have the highest gas prices. I just paid $2.699 for 89 and 93 was 2.899 on Sunday.
