Gas Prices

in north Alabama
price per gallon
 
The price of gasoline is going down here. But, it is still not cheap. And, it has ethanol. The place where I ordinarily buy gas, sells it right now for $3.14/gal.
 
There are only two places to buy gasoline without ethanol. Both those places are too far away (20 miles away) to be feasible for regular purchase.
 
This gas I bought for $3.07 is not ethanol-free. Of course, this is an independent gas station and just happens to be about 19 miles from the house. I was on a secret shopper mission today, the only reason I was out and about.
 
To convert liters to gallons
one gallon = 3.87 liters or 1 gal ~ 3.8 liter
Just multiply price per liter x 3.8. (example 1.32 x 3.8)
Or, I will do it.
 
Your turn
Where do you live and what is the price of gasoline per gallon or liter? Is the price going up or down?

  1. I assume your prices are for a gallon. In my part of Australia we are at the moment paying over $1.50 a litre - and the prices are climbing again.

  2. Peel Region Western Australia and I can sometimes get it for $1.39litre but most places are higher at around $1.45ish. So what does that mean...we are paying twice as much as you guys? Roundabout?

      That is outrageous. No wonder the British walk and bike so much...well, according to my way of thinking.

      We never got quite that high a few weeks ago. Thanks for the response. I was so elated when I saw the price.

  6. Last weekend gas here in NE PA was $3.49. We went to VA and as we got further South the prices started dropping. The lowest we say was $3.03 gal. somewhere in Central VA. Back to PA on Sunday and it was $3.55 here....wtf?!
    Oh how I love the high state taxes on gas in PA! 8-(

      Wow! $3.03 is great. That is a fillup price whether I need it or not. When it was around $3.60 a few weeks ago, I was miffed.

    1. J and M,
      That's high. I remember when gas was $0.98/gallon. I was driving 500 miles each week for school.

  8. Right now we're sitting at $1.17 per litre in south central British Columbia. About $4.44 per gallon. Our prices always fluctuate and more often than not on the upside.

      No matter how annoyed I am with prices, I am shocked at other prices and relieved ours are so low in this area. However, on the interstate there are prices near your current price. Thanks.

      How does it happen you don't drive? I am thinking you live in a large city with great public transportation. Yes, everyone grumbles at the price of gas.

  10. When we left Florida, it was $3.37. As soon as we hit Georgian it was $3.09. In Indiana, it's $3.29.

    Why the differences! Finally I have an internet connection Linda!!!!

  11. The stations near my home range from $3.69-$3.89. This is a price reduction from a few weeks ago when we were well over $4.00.

      Over $4/gallon is a lot in my estimation. Thanks for sharing that.

  12. I'm in Delaware and this week it was at $3.34 for regular (10% ethanol), which I though was good compared to what it hs been. This was the lowest I've seen in a while. It is probably a little higher just across the border in pennsylvania and lower just across the border in NJ. New Jersey always has a lower price, but NJ doesn't allow self-serve, so someone is paid to pump it into everyone; car, yet their prices are always lowest. Go figure!

  13. Larry,
    Thanks for the information. I wonder why that NJ does not allow self serve. Do you know? I wonder how they pay a worker yet have lower prices. ??? That just goes to show there is more to pricing than the price of gas. I mean, if they can afford to pay an employee, and still keep prices low, why cannot the self serve states have even lower prices?
