It's costing around $2.90-3.20 here, and I currently commute 70 miles (total) every day... so yeah, it hurts. I'll be moving to SF next week, only 1/2 mile from work, so I look forward to saving that money & time!!

I saw $3.69 for self-serve regular at a Shell station in San Mateo. The good news is I'm retired and don't have to drive anywhere.

I take it back... paid $3.55 for premium yesterday, so the prices are still ridiculously high. Thank goodness I'm moving next week, and won't have to shell out (no pun intended, LOL) $400+ a month on gas!!

ahahahahahaha. I drive a toyota echo that gets almost 37MPG. My drive to work is 4miles one way. My drive to school is 11miles one way. Costs me about 20$/month to fill it up. I go to work five days a week and school about two times a week.

*points and laughs at all SUV owners*

I paid $3.08 yesterday, which seems to be the lowest price around here. The real joke is that I went to get gas last Thursday, and gasped at seeing $2.81. I thought, "This is ridiculous. This station is owned by an extortionist." As a result, I only put $10 in. I probably could have saved myself $3 if I had just filled up then!

However, I'm grateful to drive a Toyota Corolla (even if it is automatic!) and I commute 12 miles to work one way.

Not at all bad! But at those distances you could ride a bike, hardly work up a sweat, and pay $0.00 to fill up. Or, to quote a Mr. Ken Kifer, by cycling you'd get around "seven miles per banana."
