Non-Foodie Question of the Day

How much is gas where you live?

California. Land of Sprinkles cupcakes, Disneyland, warm weather, beaches and HIGH gas prices! Just the thought of gas prices makes my blood boil. I use to think Costco had comparatively cheap gas prices but I know its high when I think Costco is too expensive now. The local Chevron near my house is at $4.39 per gal while Costco is about $4.27. Its freaking ridonk. When are we gonna start thinking of government funded alternatives so we can ditch the gas dependency?? Guess I can’t afford the new iphone 3G now. Gotta save for gas.

    Bought it for 3.87 this morning, but it’s at 3.94 now. Sad. But not as sad as your state :(

  • 2. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    CAITLIN, it went up $.07 cents in a couple hours in your city? DAMN. It aint right.

  • 3. Heather B  |  June 9, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Gas was at $3.90 on my way home from work but I swear it was $3.99 on my way to work this morning! I know it was! hehe..I’m glad I bought my iPhone last summer when gas was cheaper. The phone wasn’t but oh well…can’t live without it! haha!

  • 4. slush  |  June 9, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    $3.96 here… bad bad times…

  • 5. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    HEATHER, so it went down? lucky butt! I havent seen my gas go down in months. Its always… up and UP. I want an iphone so bad. Just can’t afford gas and iphone. So sad.

    SLUSH, is it sad to say that I’d give anything for gas to be under $4 for me again?? Now *that* is bad.

    Up here in Northern California it was 4.69 today. Good thing I don’t have a car. I’m a bicycler. I thank my lucky stars that I live in a small town every time I ride by the gas station.

  • 7. Rachel  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    $4.59 :'(

  • 8. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    RAINBOW, GOOD LORD! You’re closer to $5 than me. Its too bad that my city isn’t conducive to bike riding. Times like these I wish I lived in a small town.

    RACHEL, holy gas prices batman! Guess you won’t be visiting me anytime soon huh? poo.

  • 9. steph (whisk/spoon)  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    in australia gas is priced by the litre…converted to gallons, at my closest station it’s a bit more than $6 a gallon! thank goodness we have a hybrid and only take it out once a week!

  • 10. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    STEPH, $6/GAL!! ::faint:: I definitely want a hybrid for my next car. Gas prices are killing my fundage.

  • 11. Gretchen Noelle  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    Mine is almost $6 a gallon for the cheap stuff.

  • 12. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    GRETCHEN, YIKES! I think I’ll cry when my gas gets to $6. I know its coming soon…

  • 13. food librarian  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:29 pm

    I’m in Los Angeles too and I just saw $4.54. I thought of trying Costco but the last time I was there, the line was practically all the way to the food court (not a bad idea though…pizza and fro yo while waiting for gas…)

  • 14. CB  |  June 9, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    FOODLIBRARIAN, thats the same as my hubs. He knows Costco is cheaper but he refuses b/c he’d rather pay the extra cents/gal than spend time waiting in line. Mmmm… costco pizza. YUM. haha.

  • 15. Kat Graz  |  June 10, 2008 at 5:13 am

    Gas is horrible here!!! Just paid $4.89 and it was for midgrade

  • 16. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 6:01 am

    KAT, eeewww. that stinks. I love NYC but yet another reason I can’t afford to move there.

  • 17. Julie  |  June 10, 2008 at 6:44 am

    I can no longer complain about high gas prices… even though around here it’s still hurting everyone… it’s about $3.85 on average at the moment.

  • 18. mrsabybaby  |  June 10, 2008 at 6:46 am

    It was up past $4 here as well but now it’s back down to around $3.96. I think it’s bad when you say, “Wow, gas is down to $3.96!” DOWN to. I mean really.

  • 19. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 6:49 am

    JULIE, yeah thats what I was thinking when someone commented about $6/gal! CRIPES!

    MRSABYBABY, I KNOW! “down” to $4?? Its official. I have been brainwashed.

  • 20. nikki57  |  June 10, 2008 at 7:22 am

    We’re right around $4. Cali gas prices are totally postponing our trip to visit. We wanted to drive all over Cali, but prices like that are just too damn much

  • 21. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 7:24 am

    NIKKI, you were gonna drive to Cali?? You do realize you are 3000 frillion miles away right? Sorry but anyplace that takes longer to drive than 4 hours aint worth it for me! I hate driving!

  • 22. Nina  |  June 10, 2008 at 7:46 am

    I think it’s about $3.70 here. I live in a smaller town so all the stations have the same price, so I don’t even look at the price when I pump. I know I have to have it, so I just pump and go. :) When I first got my car I could fill it all the way up for $12. Now, It takes me close to $40. :(

  • 23. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 7:48 am

    NINA, yeah same here. My car costs me about $53 everytime I fill now. ugh.

  • 24. BBKiddo  |  June 10, 2008 at 8:45 am

    My gas is about 4.50 I think. Lucky for me I carpool with three other people so I only drive to work 1 week a month otherwise I’m not sure that I could afford to work. If that makes any sense. I figured out it costs me about $20 everyday I drive myself to work!

  • 25. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 8:47 am

    BB, EXACTLY! Its like you’re working to afford gas!! Uh… no thank you very much. I’d rather stay home then. HAHA!

  • 26. Stephanie  |  June 10, 2008 at 11:33 am

    $4.19 in Boston :(

  • 27. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 11:35 am

    STEPHANIE, eeeewww. About the same as us Californians.

  • 28. Liliana  |  June 10, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    I live in Laval (a suburb of Montreal) and today the price of gas was $1.50 a litre which is around $6.00 a gallon.

    I stay home alot lately.

  • 29. CB  |  June 10, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    LILIANA, dang. I can’t feel sorry for my almost $5/gal after seeing $6 for you. I hear ya. I am a homebody. Not b/c I don’t like going out but its getting too expensive now!

  • 30. B  |  June 12, 2008 at 6:56 am

    CT: $4.49. You know 5 bucks is right around the corner. Probably July 4th weekend would be about the time to hit that landmark record.

  • 31. CB  |  June 12, 2008 at 6:59 am

    B, ugh. thats so true. I guess I know what I’ll be doing for my bday… staying home.

  • 32. noskos  |  June 12, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    $10.48 here in the Netherlands, you’re gas prices are so 1995 :-)

  • 33. CB  |  June 12, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    NOSKO, $10.48/gal!?!?!! Do you have public transportation? I sure hope so! In California, our public trans isn’t great so everyone pretty much has to drive…
