    Prices jumped from $3.38/gal here on Sunday, when I filled up (right after I read the news release from Iran about "reverse sanctions on the UK and France, well before the markets opened in Asia). This morning, $3.79/gal at the same gas station. $0.41/gallon is over 10% in 5 days. I hope everyone is ready for a long term squeeze. Oil is trending upwards, and it does not show signs of stopping.

    It went from 3.67 to 3.75 in the time it took me to go to bank and head back yesterday afternoon. I am not nearly as concerned with price as I am with availability. So far, so good.

    Some of us, like myself, are on limited incomes, so each increase in price at the pump hurts my bottom line.

    call it 3.969 for regular unleaded. 4.049 for diesel. Narrowest spread between unleaded and diesel i've ever seen.
    Location somewhere around Detroit. ;)

    As of yesterday, Amarillo was posting $4.08 cash for diesel, and $4.11 credit at the Pilot truck stop. I just filled up my truck for $3.69 a gallon for midgrade gas. I just filled the dang thing Thursday but had to make a Home Depot run dragging the trailer and that drags my mileage down to 14 mpg, grrr. Sucked down nearly my entire tank. :mad:

    I quit driving back and forth to work but I swear it seems like I'm still spending just as much on fuel as I was before. Trying to set aside some scratch so I can get a scooter in a few months.
