    Gasoline prices dropping

    It looks like the hit the stock market took a couple of weeks ago is starting to have an effect on the oil futures. Gas prices have dropped 15 cents in the past week to a low of 2.71.9. That's the low for what they call midgrade. Murphy's is generally the leader as the price changes here in the eastern Iowa. Most stations stay pretty close to Murphy's lead except for our one BP station. They always seem to stay at least five to six cents above the price most stations sell for.

    Put in zip code hit enter, switch to map and see the local area, expand to see the US. zoom in to see what your friends and family pay in other parts of the US.

    It is interesting to see the state differences due to taxes. Proud that PA is the highest in the country. They raised the taxes 10 in 13, 15 and 17 to help fix the damn roads. We have some seriously bad bridges, too. But there has been a lot of paving going on lately.

    You have to go to Nampa, ID for area gas under $3/gallon near me, in Ontario it's over $3.029, well over in some cases.

    Maveriks and Sinclairs (Stinker Stores) tend to have the lowest prices.

    PS Maverik is a Wyoming company and Sinclair also has a large presence in Wyoming...so that figures.

    Don't know if I ever signed up or gave em anything of mine. I'm not paranoid of the world and will probably be hacked by the russians one day but I'm using a bookmark of gasbuddy phila to see what prices I have. But the Costco is a quarter cheaper than the other stations and I don't have to drive the 10 miles to DE to get cheap gas. When they steal my identity, they will only have bills to pay.

    Fuel prices

    man you guys winge about $3.00 a gallon (3.785 liters)
    Here we are paying $ 1.70 a liter ($ 6.43 AUD a gallon)
    It seems every time the oil price per barrel becomes lower
    they INCREASE the price here.

    6.43 AUD translates into 4.55 USD. Not much higher than Hawaii's & California's per gallon price. And you guys import a 'boat load' of oil to refine because your domestic production has steadily dropped since the 80's.

    Not arguing with your main point - just putting things into perspective.
    I'd imagine there is a big push to go electric or at least buy hybrids on the Great Australian continent.
