What A Difference a Month Makes

For the first time in over 5 weeks, I had to fill the gas tank of my Mini Cooper. The last time I filled it, I paid about $3.69 per gallon - over $50 total. Last night, I paid $1.85 per gallon, and my total bill came to $24.20 for 13+ gallons.
On September 20, gas was $3.89/gallon ($3.86 with a Kroger card) for regular (left). It eventually peaked at more than $4/gallon before it started coming down. I never thought we'd see gas go
below $3/gallon. To be honest, I never thought it would go below $2/gallon.

How much is gas in your neighborhood?

P.S. We're closing in on our 500th CDP post!

You have a cooper car? Isn't is great that we can once again afford to fill up?!

I paid $1.72 last night at Walmart in Murfreesboro.

It's bouncing around but it's about $1.00 a litre in Vancouver. In some parts of Canada it's 0.80. The math gets tricky because lately our dollar has dropped drastically against the greenback. With the currency conversion I'm going to say we're still paying about $4.00 US dollars for a US gallon. But I was never good at math.

We are down to around $1.75 here. Nice to get a break from the high prices for a while.

The gas is about the same price around here... $1.95 per gallon or so. I'm glad fuel prices have come down, although my Beetle is a diesel. It costs a bit more to fill up, but I can get around 530 miles on one tank!

Illinois gas is $2.25 a gallon for regular.
