    It just cost me over 60 bucks to fill my tank..

    How are prices where you live?

    sarah0323 responded:
    It is 3.59 a gallon. Takes about $75.00 to fill up my tank. My SO's truck I can't remember the last time we filled it up. It would probably be close to $150.00 to fill it up.

    And the grocery prices are up as well...I can usually get out of Trader Joe's for under $100. Not today! And I bought all the same stuff...
    VicsEandJ responded:
    I'm not 100% sure since I don't have a car, but I think I heard on the news that NYC's are apporaching (or over??) $4.00 per gallon. Crazy.

    But it does seem that grocery prices are going up daily!!! I always buy the same things, and every time I go to the store it costs more.

    We don't have a car either. On my way to picking up Levi from school, I did note gas at one station at $4.39 per gallon for the cheap stuff.
    Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to iocasta's response:
    I just heard that prices in California might go over $5.00 a gallon in the summer. Looks like the kids will get a lot less camp if gas and everything related to gas prices keeps rising.

    VicsEandJ replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    DH and I were thinking of a summer road trip, but if the gas prices stay nuts, we'll be doing a staycation. I hate traveling in the summer with everyone else anyway, it doesn't take much to talk me out of it !

    It is 3.85 a gallon. takes about $60 weekly to fill my tank too. We have a suburban that is just for family trips & we don't usually let it get below 1/2 tank. We took as trip last weekend, we filled up on the way home & it was $114.

    Here in central PA it's $4.09 for the premium. I drive an Audi so I'm required to use that stuff. Grrr. I think the cheep stuff is $3.79ish. At this rate I'd be better off staying home rather than drive to work all week!

    $3.79 for reg here but its going up $3.779 for Oil yesterday

    Where I live, the cheap stuff runs about $4.15/gallon. We used to have an SUV that required the premium and am so glad we don't have it anymore.

    I have a minivan and a few weeks ago put in $60 and still didn't fill it up.

    Yikes! I love my car but it's for sale. Next vehicle will take the lower grade gasoline. Can't wait to stop buying premium.
    baby1at35 replied to BekahS's response:
    Filled up today with the cheap stuff which was $3.83
    Unreal ! I am planning a couple of drive vacations and better save up as everything is going up food prices too!
