IIRC, $3.09 for premium. Premium only runs about 10 cents more than mid grade 89 octane and the `12 Impala runs better w/premium. Lowest prices I have seen in some time.

Wow......$100.00 if you've still got a quarter tank?? That's why the French get paid so much. What's that about 75 euros??

South Florida always seems higher than average on gas prices.

87 octane regular, averages around $3.25 here.

I'm paying $3.65 for 93 octane Chevron.

My DD is a WRX-STI turbo car, then the vette and viper. Soon a new Corvette and a newer Viper or new GTR. Life is short!

Actually I put the photos of the meet up on DC, a while back:

Nice pic of the Lamborghini! I remember when I went to the Netherlands in 2000 and stayed there for 6 months with my Dutch girlfriend and about fell over when I saw the gas prices. So I know we have it good over here.

Right now I'm paying $ 3.50/gal at Chevron

Played around with a new '13 GT-R this morning, while my wife's '11 Maxima was being serviced.

Very sweet machine, like the interior even better than the exterior.

However, there's no way to get out the door, for less than $102k, and that's a bare bones no option vehicle.

Just don't think it's worth the price of 2 base Corvettes.

Guess I've not yet reached the point in my life where money is no object. Maybe someday.

You have it good until socialism kicks in, then things change.
