I have noticed a lot of people driving easier (slower) around here. That being said, a lot of people are still driving like they have money to burn.

I paid $2.93 today for 87. When I bought the car on Feb. 14 and gassed it up, gas was $2.15.

Yesterday near my work, every station was sitting right at 2.99 and 9/10th. I rushed home to fill up because the holiday station near my house is always slow about changing their price. Sure enough, the holiday was still at 2.79 for the regular stuff. But today the price is sitting at 2.98.

I had to make a round trip to just south of San Diego, yesterday. I had to pay $3.55 for gas, both in San Diego and in Agoura. What really trips me out is that drivers don't seem to be slowing down a bit. I pretty much drove 80 the whole trip and I had to stay out of the inside lane, or I kept getting people sniffing my tail pipe.

I did see a enclosed trailer with a sign on the back that said "Please stay very far back. The contents of this trailer are highly toxic and may have lifetime consequences". I think it was a guy hauling his dune buggy to the desert, but I thought it was an interesting approach to trying to get people to not follow so close.

Yes, but a lot of your fuel price is tax which subsidizes public transportation, something we don't have on the other side of the pond. If there were reliable public trans from my house to my workplace I'd have no problems at all with getting up earlier and riding the bus to work, but there just isn't an option. Aren't even any bike trails so I have to drive to work. If gas goes up much more though, I plan to start riding the bike anyway. Biggest problem with a bike where I am is it isn't the safest way to go. I work in an industrial park in the country, and the only access is via 50MPH country roads or a 55MPH 4 lane that everyone drives 70-75 on. Maybe a motorcycle instead...

I was doing 60 today, and noticed 4 people behind me! And I was following a semi. Oh and last time I filled up (8 days ago) gas was $3.149 now its like 3.299 at the high placed, and 3.259 at the cheapo stations...
