I hope it doesn't go up more!
Oh that's true. our town didn't even have gasoline anywhere for 3 days after Katrina which is why i probably didn't see the high price. $2.99 is the highest our town has had it so far.

I just paid $3.05 here in Indianapolis yesterday evening....it's not even summer yet !!!

I'm glad I'm driving a sedan and my wife a hatchback, both provide good gas mileage....when I arrived in the USA in Dec. '99 (my company transferred me to the Detroit office and I came as a legal immigrant with a work visa L1-A) gas price was $0.87/gal. That was cheap gas !!!

The last two times I was in East TN (September and November 2006) it was a good 15-20 cents cheaper than here in St. Petersburg. Right now our gas prices are about $2.80-$2.90 for regular. I get premium, which is more like $3.05-$3.15. Another good website is gasbuddy.com.

NH right now is on the average $299.9 for regular, every fewdays the price seems to go up a few cents! I can't imagine how much it will be to rent a truck to move the 1200 miles, but it will be worth it!

Okay, our regular is up to $3.39, even $3.49 in some places! I know Costco has it for let but I haven't checked there in the last few days.

One thing is for sure...even though I can't wait to move out of CA, I am certainly not looking forward to driving a motorhome and a truck (both towing other vehicles) 2500 miles, getting only about 10 mpg at these prices. Oh well, the end result will be well worth it.

According to that website, gas is about $.10-.15 cheaper in Chattanooga than in our area of S. Florida (Broward County). Then I did a search in CA where I used to live and it was about $.55 cheaper in Chattanooga. So of course being the dork that I am, I had to check my original hometown of Rochester, NY which is about $.06-.10 more expensive than Chattanooga. I think that is because, though Rochester has a somewhat low cost of living, their taxes are REALLY bad and I guess that would apply to gas, as well.

Anyhow, interesting comparison, thanks for the info!

Pilot Station in Cookeville Exit 287 / I 40 $2.77

Gas in that area always seems to be .20 - .30 cheaper than in S. FL.

I just bought gas today at Costco in Citrus Heights, a suburb of Sacramento, CA. I paid 3.24 per gallon. Wow! That hurt my wallet!
