  • Gas hits $5.00 now!

    Gas in my area around Charleston, SC has officially up and above $5.00 a gallon due to Hurricane Ike getting ready to slam into Texas. Outrageous, unbeliveable and just plain sad. I believe we are seeing the end of the world.

    And I thought I was mad when it jumped forty cents in two days. The last time I seen gas prices, it was at $3.94.

        Canadians have it worse...

        Europeans have it even worse...

        Yet none of them complain...

        I love our neighbors to the south...

        But, stop complaining...

        we can calculate the price of gas in Canada at about $3.95 US/gallon. In the U.S., the average price is about $2.89/gallon.

          and here I was sitting at a 1/4 tank...

          granted it'll probably last me until Monday if I'm not taking any trips, but I guess I forgot to take "natural disasters 2,000 miles away" into my fueling schedule. Though prices haven't jumped that much -so far-

          There are some days that, oddly enough, I actually end up GLAD my Jetta's only the 2 liter.

              Sheesh i dont know how im gonna pay for gas :(
              I Read somewhere that filling up while the ground is cold is cheaper because the gas is denser
              So fill up in the morning!!!
              And yeah we don't even have it that bad. Europe is charged up the arse for gas
              Motorcycles ftw or public transit which isn't all that bad depending on where you live

                That's what I've always been thinking, not canadians really no offense but if we paid what europe pays equal to a gallon then I'd bet their might be some minor riots..

                      It's gone up because the texas refineries have shut down for Hurricane Ike.

                        I'm gonna say its gone up because Charleston is crazy. Most of the country has seen gas prices hover around $3.40 - $3.55 recently, and oil has actually DROPPED in price as Ike moves through now that we think it's going to miss most of the off-shore drilling platforms. I haven't seen any price spikes near my area recently. I think whichever gas station you bought from at $5.00 just ripped you off, is all.

                          Yeah, sounds like price gouging to me. Gas here is less than 3.50/gal.

                            thats price gouging, you should talk to your attorney general and get them to press charges against the stations that are charging those prices.

                              Something I have seen is some stations selling ethanol free gasoline. They charge more for it. Up to 75 cents more.
