    When I was a kid I remember pumping gas at my Grandfather's Gulf gas station and I swear the price was around .34 - .37 gal.

    Can anyone tell me why gas stayed at that price for years, where today it is changing a couple of times a day? Is it simply OPEC?

    $2.49

    There's nothing that will get people bitching like gas prices.

    But I guess we do have to keep in perspective, as another poster pointed out, that if we account for inflation, gas prices are very low.

    Lowest I remember was $0.89 a gallon. I remember people starting to bitch when it was $1.40. Hahaha, right now we'd give an arm and a leg to get the prices back to $1.40.

    And yeah, WTF, where's all my Iraqi oil?!

    An Imperial gallon is about 20% larger than an American gallon.

    He said an Imperial Gallon, which is different than our Gallon, but I don't remember which way.

    This would be a better thread if some of ya'll who don't ID your location wouldn't say " It's $xxxx here".

    We are now at $2.12 for Regular, which jumped from $1.99 overnight.

    Anybody ever used http://www.gaspricewatch.com/USGas_index.asp ?

    $2.58/ Gallon + 2001 Dodge Ram Q-Cab (12.2 MPG)= Freakin' Expensive.

I was only making $1.20 an hour at a restaurant, so that .35 was more than a third of my hourly pay. If the price of gas had risen in comparison to my pay, I'd be paying over $10.00 a gallon today. So, putting things in perspective, I guess I can't B!tch and moan too loud! Still, I wish it was cheaper, so I, as well as everyone, do complain about it.
    Thing that ****es me off is how fast its gone up in the short amount of time. When I was like 12 (6 years ago) I remember gas was still double digits.
