    It's about the same in LA, maybe a little more. Costs me about $30 a week.

    It varies daily... sometimes several times a day! I got gas this morning for $2.64 for regular. The one that really hurts is the Corvette because it takes premium. Yeah, I know... Boo Frickin' Hoo! No one wants to hear someone who owns a Corvette complain about the price of gas!

    Actually, there is a chain of gas station/convenience stores in the Midwest called QuikTrip. I know, why would I buy gas from a company that can't even spell? But anyway, they have a deal with Discover card where you get a debit card just like a Visa or MasterCard that you get from your bank, but for the first 90 days, you get 10¢ off per gallon! After the 90 days is up you get 2¢ off per gallon. Sweet!

    About 1.60/liter which puts me right at $6 per gallon.

    That's just how it is in Europe :(

    The equivalent of about $7.41 for one of your little US Gallons ;)

    The joy - My Smart Roadster costs about $58 to fill, and my Subaru Impreza about $105 or so I guess...

    So suck it up ;)

    I hired a Corvette in LA for a couple of days in 2008 and I remember laughing because it was so cheap to fill up :D

    Oh. Wow. That would kill me. Especially filling up twice a week and even with the $500/mo gas reimbursement we get.

    It's been over - but the Canadian dollar's up the last few weeks against the US dollar so that's brought it down in US dollar terms, at least.

    It's been as high as $1.30 a litre, but right around the $1 mark the last year or so.

    Oh well - it costs what it costs. My little corner of Canada fared very well in the recession so I am not going to whine for a moment.
