I don't pay much attention when buying gas for the vette, because I'm going to drive it no matter what the price.

I do look during the week tho, when I'm driving my daily driver a 130 miles a day. Right now regular gas is around $1.60, lot less than most of you guys are paying. Premium is in low $1.80's

I guess I should'nt bitch too much, its probably going to get higher. :(

Gas junped up .06 a gallon this weekend to $ 1.68 for premium. Bigger cities around here charge more but in the smaller ones it's still relatively cheap

Long live our goverment.

The tax on gas out here is sky high. About 2/3 of the gas price is tax.

:(

So when you buy 30$ on gas you get 10$ worth of gas and the other 20$ go's to the goverment.

Get this:

When you buy a corvette here you pay 21% sales taxe on it.
Then when you register it for the first time you have to pay a one time fee of 5358$ of taxe's and then an Annual tax fee of 2143$.

And the you still have to get insurance....

So then you are allowed to drive the car on public roads.
After you fueled it up at 4.54$ per gallon .

Hey who said getting rich is difficult........
:(

I always assumed Hawaii had the highest prices in the U.S. (what with the shipping costs and all), but I guess not. Here in California, 91 octane premium was $2.55 at a neighborhood station in the S.F. Bay Area suburbs over the Labor Day weekend.

Summer Gas Rip Off

What you have seen recently is the normal "rip off" by gas stations. They take advantage of the driving season and flat out rob people by jacking prices up. Prices will drop a bit over the next few months.
