Here in Va. we found a place selling gas for 1.57 per gallon. I saw that it is much more expensive in some places especially overseas, how much is it and has it changed or altered your travel plans?

lol I'm paying about $1.89 per gallon here in Chicago. There's one place that charges only about $1.80 per gallon, but I can fill my 16 gallon tank with 20 gallons...And I already reported them to the weights and measures commitee

Here in NM it's 1.73 ... it's increased by abotu 20 cents since I moved here in Jan. Stunning. And 1.73 is a good price, some places sell it for 1.75+.

ooo, I was down in phoenix earlier last month and commented on the gas prices. I guess that, even though we're a large jump away, it's good to have a pipeline straight from Texas to Chicago...

today (4-26-2004) I didnt FILL my tank but I bought feul at 1.87 per gallon......IF it wasnt SO HIGH...I would have filled up, and I am even driving a little economy mazda, that has NO guts whatsoever........(lame 4 cyl car )
WHEN will we get to purchase cars that have ceramic engines? ceramic doesnt need OIL and withstands amazing heat tempetures........
(and I know they were invented quite a few years back so WTF is up with that?)

Buffalo NY area- $1.85 and up.

we're thankful to have a few Indian Reservations close, which saves a few pennies- and you get your smokes cheap too, so its worth the ride.

Gas prices actually dropped where I live at in South Carolina. I believe I saw a price of $1.61 for regular unleaded. I'm not sure if that's the cheapest gas though. It's just a regular station. The price of gas isn't affecting me too much right now. I believe gas cost about 10 cents more on average in eastern SC and about 20 cents more than here on average up in NC where gas taxes are higher.

theRiverGoddess, this may answer your question:




A couple of decades ago, Toyota researched on producing a ceramic engine which can run at a temperature of over 6000F (3300C). Ceramic engines do not require a cooling system and hence a major weight reduction in fuel-efficient vehicles. Fuel efficiency of the engine is also higher at high temperature. In conventional metallic engine, much of the energy released from the fuel must be dissipated as waste heat in order to prevent a meltdown of the metallic parts.

Despite all the desirable properties, such engines are not in production because the manufacturing of ceramic parts is difficult. Imperfection in the ceramic leads to cracks. Such engines are possible in laboratory research, but manufacturing difficulties prevent them from becoming reliable products.

Here in Alaska- 1.70 - 1.80 a gallon...kinda surprising to see all the other high prices. Advantage to being at the beginning of the pipeline, lol.

At this rate of exchange, it is about 5$ a gallon in Belgium! Don't complain too much...

I think it's $1.89 for regular unleaded, $1.99 midgrade, and $2.09 premium here in west Michigan. I sure am glad I have a small sports car with decent milage instead of a big SUV with a 40 gallon gas tank that only gets 15 mpg.

Here in New Zealand we buy by the litre. If i got my maths correct then for Unleaded 91 it costs us $3.3222735 per gallon! 96 is a little bit more expensive and deisal is WAY cheaper.
