I'm a bit puzzled, watching news about the gas crunch in the South, while noticing that fuel in New Jersey is not only plentiful, but it's also much cheaper than it was just a few weeks ago!

People elsewhere in the country, what is happening to your fuel prices? Are you paying more, less, the same as you were 2-3 weeks ago?

We're still a little bit higher than pre-Ike (~$.05-.10) but prices trending downward. No stations out of fuel here.

I live in Houston and I filled up today for $3.29 a gallon. It was hard to find gas for the few days after the storm hit but now it's plentiful.

Yeah..Gas is a lot cheaper in PA and we have plenty. I really think it's a bunch of BS regarding what's going on in GA and other parts of the south east. I hope the situation eases up for people down there.

I live in metro Atlanta. On the way home from work today, I passed twenty one gas stations. Of those twenty-one, only two had gas. Roughly thirty cars were lined up for each stations, perhaps more.

What's BS? This gas crunch is a reality for people here in the South. IT IS REAL!!! Simply because you're not seeing it in Pennsylvania doesn't mean that it is not happening in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina.

$3.79 here in Little Rock. I hear Fort Smith, AR is at $3.39. Wholesale gas prices fell to $2.39, so technically we should be in the $2.79 range for a national average.

lammius - yeah, i was shocked when i saw that post on the NJ board. as I said there, I paid $3.17 today. i remember katrina and gas, only for a day or two, being $4.50/gal in NJ, then it leveled off throughout this state and other states affected. that hurricane did much more damage so I'm puzzled as to this "shortage".

eta - $3.17 is the lowest since prices started spiking, which was.....may?

A lot of it depends on where the gas is coming from. Up here in the Pac NW, there was almost no price change pre/post Ike, because the gas comes from Alaska and thus refinery problems in the Gulf have little effect on supply and, thus, price.
