NW Minnesota: Gas $3.17/gal, diesel around $3.54

I drive a 1991 Toyota 4Runner...so I am getting around 150 miles a tank (do some plowing, drive a lot in 4x4).

I don't know how accurate this is (seems about right), but below is a link to a price map.

About 1.26/litre here so that's 4.788/Gal. Usually costs about 70 bucks to fill my car.

Good gravy, I won't complain any more about our $2.99 a gal gas here is east Tennessee. At $4.788 a gal we would just have to say home or walk.

Yep and it keeps going up. Before 9/11 it was at about 90 cents or so per litre. Then it started going up. Most gas station signs were only designed for 2 digit numbers, and lot of them had to have them redone. Was kinda funny to see numbers like 04 on those signs, but the 1 was a given. At one point they were even talking that we could see it go up to 2 bucks but it never happened. We did hit something like 1.70 or so at one point. Usually they'll jack the prices on long weekends. I can picture some guy in saudi arabia laughing every time, with his AK-47 at his side and diaper on his head.
