That's one thing I don't miss about living in Hawaii.  Everyone asks why I moved back to the mainland when I retired from the Navy and I tell them it's too expensive to live there if the military isn't paying for your housing and you aren't getting BAS (Basic Allowance for Substanance).  My housing/food allowance was more per month when I was living in Hawaii than what I currently make at my job.

 

In McKinney gas is back down to $2.48 at Kroger.

I remember prices as low as $0.249 during gas wars in the 60's.

 

I passed a sign for $2.469 on my way to work this morning.

I lived in St. Thomas USVI until Hugo blew all the leaves off the trees and the gas was $1.50 in 1989 there. The islands can be nice but it is expensive. You need to be making about twice as much to maintain a lower standard of living as in the states.  Nice for vacation but not so easy all the time.

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

I paid $2.53 per gallon for regular unleaded a couple of days ago.  The price has been hanging around this level....+/- 10 cents for quite a while.

 

I have a little car expense log book that I was keeping back around 1962 to 1966....and, at one time, I was paying 17.9 cents per gallon for regular leaded gas.  If I remember right it was during a local gas war.  Haven't had one of those in years.

Bad news right now is, as the stock market goes, so goes oil prices.  Stocks up, oil up, stocks down, oil down.  Gas prices directly tied to oil prices so they fluctuate as well.  On the rise here again.

That's why I paid $1.599 for gas yesterday.

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

The falling dollar has more to do with the price of oil then the stock market. The groups selling the oil don't like parting with it at a discount.

The $4 gas was because speculators thought they could keep bidding the price up or it was really the guys that bet it would go down.  When they finally could not hold on to the losing contract and closed them the price collasped.

Sorry that wasn't a complete thought.  The complete thought would be: I guess that's why the price of gas went up from $2.469 to $2.599 in the space of a day (on the same day the stock market also starting shooting up).  It didn't help that I typoed the price.   Oops.

I paid 2.99 per gallon today.  Hear on the news gas prices could reach 3.25 per gallon by the holiday.

We have a Kroger loyalty card that gives us $.10 / gal for every $100 we spend. I paid $2.38 yesterday.

Holy crap!  Where are you located that it's that high.  Must be in the CA region.

Nope....Chicago area. I believe we pay the highest gas prices in the country. The prices I saw are in the suburbs, add about $.20 - $.30 cents more in the city proper.

 

Here's a link to gas prices in our area if you care to have a look.http://www.automotive.com/gas-prices/33/illinois/cook/chicago/index.html

$2.65 2 days ago!  Up from $2.49 where it's been holding for weeks.

 

Actually passed lower prices across town, and one station near home $2.59 yesterday; others here still $2.65, same corner. Smiley Sad
