I thought that of all places my favorite rock climbing discussion forum would have a thread dedicated to this.

I paid... Oh wait, I don't have a car. Buses here are 20 cents and taxis 20 cents a kilometer.

$6.29 on Coronado Island. If you have to look at the sign you should not be on the island.

"50 bucks at Circle K...

But I didn't have my wallet with me...

Where would you put the Wallet?

Gas prices are like weather. Chances are you can't change them with any amount of hot air.

You can go to GasBuddy, click around for your local report, they make it easy for me:


From there I'll drag the map to Oakdale or wherever. Bend over and get along my way.

If you want to whine about gas prices, a good place might be here:

The gas prices SUCK!
We are being hosed by the oil co.'s.

How many here remember when it was like .29 a gallon? The attendant would
pump it for you, check the oil level, tire pressure, wash your windshield,and then give you some kind of freebe bonus like green stamps, a coffee mug or some such gift to thank you for your patronage.
Boy, times have changed for the worse.

Done bitching now,

Cosmic, you did it again. Too funny!

$4.69 at an ARCO in Woodland HIlls, CA

There's nothing we can do about the gas prices.. we're being held hostage again!
They have us all by our whatsies. .

The last gas rationing we had was a fluke. They had it but gouged us for all they could get by with.
So bend over ...here it comes and you don't even get a kiss.

Actually we are being hosed by Huge capitol investment firms and an under-regulated commodities market.

About 1/2 to 1/3 of the cost of gasoline today is due to inflationary investment instead of actual cost of production and the standard market factors of supply and demand.

Notice what happened when the markets crashed 4 years ago.

Oh and for Califonia/Northern Nevada there are apparently several refinery and pipeline issue producing a huge spike in price due to reduced supply and speculation.

You can get just under $4 here for regular in Reno if you look.

Gas prices suck. Not sure what can be done though. Maybe I should get one of them 'lectrics next time.

One benefit of being self employed is that you raise your rates as your essentials go up in cost.

Never gouge, just keep up with inflation on an annual basis.

$3.799 in Kalispell today. . . makin' a shoppin' trip to Costco ringin' up at just under $25. And. . . it's cool that the trip still pencils out.

One loaf of artisan bread up here is $4.19 - but at Costco you get 2 for that price. . . and such is the case with just about everything else.

Plus, it's a beautiful drive.

Today was kinda wild, though. . . I should have checked my international calendar before I fired (or TRIED to fire) down there. . . it's Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.


Every frikken Canuk from southeastern BC and southwestern Alberta is down here.

God love the Albertans who know which pedal makes the car GO and damn the BCers who ride the brakes. . . must be all that BC Bud.
