I'm heading over to Carowinds tonight to fill up since I work near it so hopefully it's still low, but it sucked to see my local gas (Cornelius) at $3.16 for a couple of weeks and now it's at $3.26. And gas by my job is exactly as OP said, $3.44.

I went for gas at the Kangaroo off Carowinds Blvd. about an hour ago. Gas at that station is $3.05 HOWEVER, only the two outside bays were working (so 8 pumps out of 20). I happened to luck upon getting right behind someone that was pretty much through so I was in and out, but by the time I finished pumping there were lines behind the store and out onto Carowinds Blvd. The two gas stations across the street were already at $3.19 for regular.

I paid $2.99 a gallon last Friday at exit 106. I just checked that chart & it's $3.14 a gallon. Oh well. . . it was under $3 for 6 weeks.

It could be worse... I was in L.A. this week and I saw $3.50 to $3.70 a gallon for regular unleaded everywhere.

I am surprised higher gas prices are not getting more news coverage.

Same here - and to hit the Liquor store

You are right, I wouldn't drive the 5 miles out of my way just for gas alone, but I try to fill up when I do cross the border when running an errand down in Indianland or Carowinds.

With no national energy policy to drill and produce domestic oil and bring in the Canadian pipeline, we are just digging our hole deeper when it comes to fueling the economy - everything from petro chemicals for agriculture to fuel for our vehicles. People who have bought into the lie that wind and solar production is the panacea for our energy problem have their head in the sand. We are beholding to foreign producers who don't like us, but like our bribes. We are competing with the Chinese for the worldwide production of oil and OPEC nations are loving it. If this country does not get in gear to produce domestic product and take product from our closest friendliest neighbor, then we have yet to see hard times. Rant finished. Thank you.

I'm going to The Meat Market to use my Groupon and can't decide if it's worth it to head out 521 to fill up.

Because of politics gas prices will not go down but only up up up BEFORE the election. The plan is to have people be upset about gas prices and blame the current president...that is all the big business croonies want
