Default What does Gas cost in your area?

One of the reasons most of us bought hybrids is to save some money on gas. It seems that this decision is back in the forefront as gas prices have skyrocketed back to their old outrageous levels of last year.

What is gas going for in your area?

Here in San Jose on 3/17 the cheapest regular was $3.039 for regular and $3.269 for premium.

That makes a tank worth $38.00!

When we bought the car in November of last year gas was only $2.239. It now costs 35% more to operate the car, but it is still much cheaper than the car it replaced!

Around $3. I can tell when gas prices are getting outrageous when people start asking me about the car more Check http://www.gasbuddy.com/ for prices everywhere.

Just under 2.40 in my area, but closer to downtown Houston it's 2.40-2.50.

I need to move out of Los Angeles.... I paid $3.05 (regular) at Costco on Thursday. I think it went up another 5 cents since then! Costco has one of the cheapest gas around.

I love the cost of living in California. Gas prices near my home in suburban LA are around $3.10. And the houses here are real affordable too.
