Gas Prices Going Down

Here next to us gas has dropped from $4.09 two days ago to $3.98 today. Diesel is still at $4.35. Perhaps some encouragement before summer.

I've been looking forward to taking 60 days off to go out to SD from FL since the day I bought my MH in 2009. The price of gas my effect my dining out habits but it won't change my trip. Need to do it while I'm still healthy.

Just wish the price would go down as fast as it goes up. Daily drops would be real nice!! Going to Myrtle Beach next month. Filled up on April 16th when a station just outside York PA had gas for $3.35 / Gallon . It was 3.72 near my house. So I have enough gas to get there but will need to fill up to come home.

Charlie,

We just came back from Hilton Head, SC and the cheapest gas we found was in SC. If you can hold off until you get there, you might save a couple of $$.

Gas here in Jax FL is 3 76 for regular. The farther south you travel in Fla, the price goes up! And I'm going to the Keys the end of June!!! Hope it drops more by then!! Randy

Just filled up the TV for this weekends trip on the outskirts of Kansas City for $3.48/gal. Let's hope the downward trend continues!

I would love to see gas prices keep coming down. We took a family vacation to Disneyland from Albuquerque about three weeks back and the 1600 mile round trip cost us just over $800. We filled up in Needles, CA on the way there and if I recall paid $4.79 a gallon. On the way back we went an extra 30 miles and filled up just after getting back into AZ for nearly a $1 less a gallon. MSN has a good web site for checking gas prices for a given zip code. Might be worth using when planning the trip.

fuel prices

Making ALL of outr trips in the car or truck count , and starting to use my motorcycle helps keep stopping at the pump so often ,, i am also sticking to $20 or less only at a stop for fuel..

Price of fuel is why I converted from a diesel engine to a gas engine truck.
The mpg is almost exactly the same and I save at least 30 or more cents a gallon buying gas.
