I hope this thread stays civil. Seems like the gas threads on my other hangouts always go downhill pretty quickly...

Central Illinois, in the middle-of-nowhere farm country...
$3.79 for 87 (E10)
$3.86 for 89 (E10)
$3.95 for 93 (E10)
$2.95 for E85

Both of our cars require 90+ octane, so the $4/gallon threshold is here for us already. We're fortunate in that my wife and I live less than 3 miles away from our daily jobs, so our time and gas usage for commuting is very low. Though we take a lot of road trips on weekends and during the summer, so we feel it there.

I have a motorcycle that I ride on nice days that gets about 45mpg around town. I was actually thinking of selling it this spring, but changed my mind with the current trend in gas prices. I do find some enjoyment in the fact that these days I'm not looked upon as a freak when I go to the store on the bike to pick up a few things.

Though it is somewhat depressing to fill up the bike for the same amount of money that it cost to fill up my car 8 years ago.

I know I'm getting old when I can remember going to the gas station and telling the guy to put a dollar in

As a note to this thread, if you're curious about gas prices around the US, I've found that GasBuddy.com is a pretty interesting site. Their gas price temperature map is fun (or sad) to play with.

Behold the power of the internet! ;\)

Must be nice... public insurance on bikes here in about 2002 or 2003 suddenly doubled.

Really makes you wonder how much you want to ride when it's going to cost you $2379 to insure a bike (using a 2001 Honda Shadow ACE 750 as a model)... and the riding season here is 5 months.

Wow, at least you have access to E85. GM pushes that at all the dealers but in California, there's only 3 locations pumping E85. That's efficient...

That's probably a good thing, the making and subsequent use of E85 is driving up the commodities/food prices, making for a double whammy on them at the store, transport costs and low supply.

... we do?

I've seen flexfuel badges on trucks... dunno if I've seen a pump for it yet.
