$3.32 today.
I'm glad I drive a Fiesta and live 6 miles from work. I only fill up once every 3 weeks or so.

I have also always been a firm believer in living near your circle of activities (work, school, church, shopping) to lower your driving exposure.
People with 20+ mile commutes are in for a real ride this summer.

I work from home but my business does involve a large amount of travel. As of 3/1 I'm instituting a fuel surcharge on any clients more than 25 miles from Charlotte.

Default Gas headed for $5 a gallon

Was reading up on yahoo finance and from the look of things in the Middle East, we are being set up for paying $5 a gallon.

The general din around the issue is price of gas is not the issue its the betting on higher prices in future that is jacking up the price.

Some of you who are better informed can you please contribute your views on the current scenario

The current price accounts for all current Middle Eastern instability. Unless another country or two have another revolution, I don't think gas is going much higher than it already is.

If you're looking for more knowledgeable people (or at least people with an opinion), we've got two threads in the Charlotte forum already talking about National Gas Prices:

Okay...How BAD will Gas prices get?

Why isn't anyone talking about GAS prices?

And if you get bored with the Charlotte forum's discussions there's a dozen other threads on the same topic:

$5 Dollar a gallon Gas??? Should we Drill Baby Drill???

Cheap gas? Only one city now less than $3 a gallon

Obama Cheers for Higher Gas Prices

What are Gas Prices in your city????

Who is struggling with the high gas prices ?

Just like the people that buy in Union County and work Uptown. Should be a fun summer for them, especially when they widen 485. The construction will be a nightmare.

Hopefully if they get too bad some of the local businesses will let their employees work from home a couple days a week. I know I will be asking for it.

I paid $3.41 a gallon yesterday to fill up a camry, totalling $44. The price already have me thinking about catching the bus at the Arboretum to uptown and doing my errands in less trips.
