    How much is it where you live. Here in Illinois I paid 3.29 today. My next car is definitely going to have flexfuel. I know it only saves a little but my dad is a farmer and so it also helps out the farmers.

    Prices are MUCH higher in Europe and always have been. No coincidence that they have decent public transportation, even to the smallest village. We need to change our habits.

    Wow thats good. We haven't seen that in probably six months. We usually don't get under $3. I used to have a durango but I traded it for a mini van because I couldn't stand paying for the gas.

    Awesome link! I live in South County - I was shocked when I saw the 3.52 yesterday - instead of the 3.61 a little earlier in the week. The gas stations were in about a 2 mile range too. :furious:

    As owners of gas stations, I think people need to know that your local indepent owner doesn't control the prices. He gets a call from the gas company telling him when to raise and when to lower prices.

    My husband says the the supply is there. Gas is available. Speculation is driving up prices now.

    I work as a Sales Rep for BJ's Wholesale Club and I sell alot of Business Memberships since our gas prices are much better than most of the local gas stations here in GA. It is 3.12 for regular right now. Still high but not as high as most!

    We had flexfuel on our last van (just got a new one). When we sat down and worked it out, mileage was so much worse when we used ethanol that it actually ended up being more expensive than gas. I don't know if there was something wrong with out van, but it didn't work out like we thought it would.

    I'm in Aliso Viejo

    yeah, it'd be nice to get it cheaper, but unless I was already going to La Habra, wouldn't make a lot of sense.

    There is probably nothing wrong with your van. I have yet to hear from any family members who can make the flexfuel/ethanol blends work as less expensive than straight gasoline. :( We've all tried it, but it just doesn't work. Some of us have older cars; some, newer.
