Hello Bridge_Boy,
I am using the Morrisons near the M4. Great site to use is PetrolPrices.com, you have to register (free) and then you can get a radial view of prices in your area.

Morrisons is by far the cheapest consistently.

Cheers,
T

Libya is just a taste of things to come .Just wait until Saudi Arabia has a revolution petrol will go over £2.00 a litre. Of course then food will go through the roof.I am feeling mighty uneasy with what is happening in the middle east. Military intervention will follow soon then the hornets nest will be well and truly kicked.

Cheers for the heads up. I will register for that site. I live in Theale so I have been using Savacentre for my petrol but might be worth me going to Morrisons.

Thanks

I'm in Georgia, Northern middle area..about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. Reg is 3.78 and Premium is 3.98..we're just about there...they were saying 5 dollars....now they are expecting 7 dollars by the time summer comes. This is per the lady at the gas station.

If you think it about it..it makes sense really. I remember back in the late 90s...97-99, going into 2000, Gas for reg, was around 96 cents a gallon here....9/11 came and about 6 months later SHTF. People panicked and thought they would shut the gas lines down due to our oil resources coming from the middle east, so we had no gas. When gas finally did come back it was at almost 2 dollars a gallon, and that seemed like alot to us....it got into the higher 2s, almost 3s, and it was outrageous. When it got knocked back down to 1.50, everyone was happy. Fast forward a bit and we had the situation again with gas shortages, when that was said and done, prices were up in the high 3s and 4s, like they are now....when they dropped down into the mid 2s, to higher 2s, everyone was once again happy..failing to remember the 1.50 per gallon just a short time before. Now, we are looking at 4s- 5s per gallon, possibly 6-7....and when it drops on down into the low 3s and stays there....we will be happy again
....or...big leap..if it does by some change reach the 6-7 marks and they drop it down to the high 3s, we will be happy. They are conditioning us...much like Cigarettes..which personally I hate....but thats another discussion for another time. I remember clearly my mother stating when I was 10 years old (1990) that when packs reach 2 dollars, she would quit....she did in fact quit, but look at it now....almost 6 dollars a pack!

We wonder why people are crying of no money and on food stamps...consider this....say someone smokes a pack a day...thats 5 dollars a day..thats 35 dollars a week, thats 150+ a month! thats almost 2000 dollars a year! 2000 dollars...a year, that millions of people are giving to the tobacco companies...to kill you! where is the logic in that? Throw in gas, alcohol and most people eating out now a days..no wonder we are all in the sink hole.

Luckily...I'm a young mom, my husband and I married young, got great jobs really young and started our family young. We got our house young and started our own business young. Unfortunately, and I do mean that...our business does amazing in this economy..see..people right now can't get loans for new cars..so they have to come to us..the used car dealer, the buy here pay here....however, we are very guilt conscience, my husband and I would never ever watch a family drive off our lot with a car and kids, knowing its going to give them problems down the road. These are used cars to be sure and sometimes small things will happen, but anything big? and we fix it. This in turn makes us very well known for good reasons and gives us more customers. Where am I going with this....I'm young and smart. The house we chose to buy in 2001? was below our means, but big enough to grow with us. Its .4 miles from a grocery store, .6 miles from my daughters elementary school, .7 miles from my other daughters preschool. Walmart is right up the road if we are feeling froggy. All of their activities are at the church in our neighborhood which is literally almost in my backyard...(soccer, football, dance, karate, music, choir, basketball...etc etc etc) My gas lasts me a week and a half on full tank., with the prices going up, I'll be doing alot more walking. If we would all stand up, and let go of convenience, if we would as a people stand up and let them know..."we set the prices" not them...we wouldn't have to be happy when they condition us to 3 dollars a gallon.

I have a question for the European posters. How much was gasoline before the latest price spike. The distress over prices is how much has it gone up on a relative basis to the old prices. A $1/gallon from $2.50 to $3.50 is alot more stressful than an increase from $8/gal to $9/gal.

One smart cookie right there. We bought our first house young as well, in 1998 and was below our price limit, when we sold it 5 years later we put ALL of the profit on the next house and knocked down the amount that required being financed. Now 8 years into the second house I have less than 5 years to pay on my mortgage. We had our kids young enough too, now they are teenagers and we can afford the luxuries of after school activities and the transportation required to get there. Gas is something that we will be hard to ween off of, it's just really encrusted in out tiny pea brains that we absolutely need it.

Maybe if we walked a little more, took our bikes in to work if even once a week and take public transportation for another day of the week then use your car for the other three.....That could make a huge difference in the demand on gas and thus in turn might drop the price and keep it low.

TOO MUCH. So much, in fact, that I am considering just turning in my car and walking again.

Life is so wonderful without a car....

Where I live, in south-western Ontario, Canada, gas is about $1.21 a litre. I don't know how much that would be per gallon. Because I drive for a living, I keep track of the gas I use, and it wasn't that long ago when it was under $1 a litre.

Right now in Windsor Ontario, Canada, gas is $1.19 a liter ($4.76 a gallon). The one thing I would love to see a price cap on is the price of gas, but as long as the damn government keeps getting "their" money out of it, the cost will never really go down to acceptable limits.
