Well, seems over the past few days, with Iran and their little snit, it's taken the price of gas up about 50c per gallon.

We've been out of town for about a week.  When we left premium here in SoCal was around $3.99.9.  Now it's $4.49.9 at the local Shell station.

A $20 bill buys 4.45 gallons of the "good stuff" and 4.65 gallons of regular.

$3.51 here in KC.  Dear Lord I'm glad I'm in MO.  ...though that does not factor in when touring season starts.

So glad I work from home. In the summer I have to fill my car once every few months  Lol.

But it hurts when you put $15+ in to fill up a bike.

$3.659 for 91 octane this AM when I filled up on the way to work (seems when I take my wife's bike it is always needing gas  Headscratch).

News readers were saying we would see $4.50 when the Summer blends come out.   Thumbsdown

yeah might as well buy stock in the oil companies now, at least you'll get something in return for the ass raping at the pump.

and get a card that pays benefits on gas. i just signed up for a Pentagon Federal credit union card that gives an effective 5% (5x points redeemable for gift cards) back on gas. if you're using a credit card to buy something you're already going to buy anyway, might as well get some return on it.
