Last night coming home from work I stopped by Costco to fill up the Durango with some gas, since I have to use 91 octane I paid something like 2.29 a gallon. My total bill was $58.00....ouch... I live in SoCal.

Anybody got me beat?

Hi Dan, spare a thought for us down under guys. A week or so ago I paid $1.15 a litre (yes litre) for premium unleaded. It has consistently been at least $1.00 a litre in recent times. I rarely drive the car, which costs about $85.00 to fill. :)

I can get the 87 from around 1.58 for the cheap Race Way stuff but for the good 87 it is about 1.66 at the pump but on the sign it says 1.65.

$2.29 for 91 is also the highest I have seen in Vegas. Ironically comp 100 at 76 was and still is $3.95, just glad it didn't follow the rest and end up a $8.00 a gallon.
