GAS.

Post by dan » Mon Apr 04, 2005 3:16 pm

This thread could also be called....'hello inflation'.

I was just curious, what are the gas prices like in your section of the nation/world?

Grand Rapids, Mi. has hit 2.45 a gallon for Unleaded. If it's that much here, i can't imagine what it's like in other places....

I don't drive, so I haven’t looked recently, but It's usually hovering around a dollar here. (Canadian Dollar)
Really, I don't see how it can even go above 99.9 as there are only room for so many digits on all the signs.

97.3 cents a litre! I was lucky to find it that cheap! I so need a Smart Car or a Prius or a bicycle.

Yes, I've heard through the rumor mill that gas this summer in the united states will average about 2.75-2.90 a gallon. Possibly even higher. :(

Crikey coppertop you're as bad as us, I didn't think anyone could match the UK for petrol prices. Bring on the fuel cell cars!

It got up to around $1.16 a litre the other day, which is unnaturally high for us. I remember it being only 75c before the new millenium.

Last week, I've seen it fluctuate between 0.94$ a liter to 1.03$
Depending where you were travelling. The more stuck in the woods you were, far away from any city, the higher the gas price.

99.9 cents per litre up here in Van-Canadia. But that's only cause they can't fit the extra digits on the signs yet.

Personally, I ride my bike to and from work. And I'm seeing a lot of Smart Cars on the streets these days, too. However, I would support any initiative to develop the infrastructure for Hydrogen-powered vehicles. This Gas thing is just bloody rediculous.

OOH, and don't get me started on the Transit system up here in Van-city. Grrr. RYAN, I'm coming to join you in NYC!!!!

Go public transit!

But on the other hand, I have to drive AND take the trains to get around, so I get the worst of both worlds--too much for gas, too much for Metrocards. Yay for me.
I can't fly.
