It's about $1.85 here at most places. I did see it as low as $1.79 in one place. We were in Chicago over the weekend and those poor people are still paying over $2.25. Even so, it's nice to see gas back where it was before the huge rise in prices.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

95.9 I think I am paying from Tesco petrol. To be honest I don't really look at the prices (I know a bad habit), I just fill the tank when I see a red light on my speedometer board.

Though low prices are always welcome

in a normal currency: 2.56 $ per liter
in the current currency: 1.13 $ per liter

So I'm either at the top or the bottom, depends on how you look at it

I filled up for $1.84 in Arkansas this weekend, then I saw in Missouri it was $1.75. ( I live on the border of those 2 states. )

Over here it's 95.9p/L for petrol, 108.9p/L for diesel. But students here aren't allowed to own cars.
