Well, it is $2.65 at almost all our 40 of gas stations here in southern Indiana. One is priced at $2,79 but it gets all the Interstate 65 traffic. Not sure, here we jack up the prices during travel season or race season so I am at a loss

Usually the price goes up on Thursday, but today it was different.

During the 500 Mile Race, the gas prices are out of this world. It's nuts.

Hard to believe it's April. We got snow too, but it didn't stick, and it's so cold. Yikes. I think Spring got lost and can't find it's way to Indiana.

It sure is especially as there are long distances to drive to get anywhere and no public transport options. Some pay a lot more than I do especially if they own 4wd's and have to drive further to work and take kids to school etc.

Also, annual re-registration costs and compulsory insurances are around $700 USD. Not sure how this compares in other countries?

Unfortunately I only have a part-time job so all my money goes into my car and living expenses. It's why everyone wants to be in a relationship, as the double income gives people options beyond just surviving.

Oz sorry it is so hard for you all in that area. You can buy a prius hybrid like me or you could live close to work. Double income means double trouble so I won't do that (roll)

Thanks, I think living closer to work would be a great idea. Yeah you're right, double income only works if you are with the right person and I've only come across that once before.

Keeps going up and down here but the last gas I went and got was $3.20 a gallon. There's a gubernatorial election coming up and all the candidates I've heard from both sides say they are going to cut the gas tax by at least 20 cents a gallon. I'll believe it when I see it!

Wow, that's a lot higher than we pay. Every politician says they are going to cut gas tax but they never doo.

Right rooster, all the politicians promise to cut taxes and instead they just change it up so richie rich can do better - Maybe they will cut the gas tax then give gas companies much more for developing
new ways to drill in the oceans, or shake gas from rocks.All the oil will eventually dry up all the rocks/shale will eventually be crushed. Then there is no power. . r(puke) Where is Nicki Tesler when we really need him? Oh ya he got killed and all his research was destroyed..

What really needs to be done is to learn a way to live without using oil. (hmm)

I've never understood why they have to raise prices because of snow.
