    I just paid $1.25 a gallon with my Safeway gas points. Points or not, I NEVER thought I would see prices that low again:eek:

    $2.39 is the cheapest i've seen here in the Palm Springs area. Voter approved gas tax increase goes into effect tomorrow for California. Supposed to be between .10 and .15 cents, hopefully gas keeps dropping and it will hardly be noticed.

    Makes you wonder what the future holds with the influx of electric, hybrid and alt. fuel cars increasing in popularity. Will there be less gas stations and therefore driving up the prices?

    Something drastic would have to happen in my opinion. I don't feel like electric vehicles will catch-on unless we have a major shortage of oil and/or prices spike dramatically at the pump again. Look what happened in 08'/09'. Sales of big vehicles, like F150's fell, but as pump prices somewhat eased back into the $3+/gallon, sales of 150's again rose. It will be interesting to see what happens at the pump long term. I know that will influence me some with my next vehicle.

    Prices are now, below $1.90/gallon for regular unleaded in Cleveland, OH.

    I heard that some states increased the gas tax.

    Here in AK we're under $2.90/gal now.

    Prices went up overnight in Ohio, but I don't think that it was state taxes. Maybe federal ones? Our local stations went up .15 - .20/gallon, and prices are at/near $2+/gallon again.

    I think $2.19 is the cheapest gas I've seen around here. And it was Chevron.

    Man, your gas prices blow. $2.39 a gallon here, it's been pretty stable lately too, though I think it was slightly higher a week or two ago, $2.47 maybe?
