    Gas price gallery

    Let's take a photo of these ludicrous prices.

    The stations that invested in digital readout are sitting pretty as they monkey with the knobs and crank up the prices every hour.

    How much in your hood?

    I paid $4.21 two days ago in Mt View. I just started biking to work...well a couple times anyway.
    I like to ride bikes.

    I saw like 4.20 in the 95066 area end of last week, and it was 4.60 when i paid Weds. I'll get a shot of them (probably whiskey too) after work today.

    If you have an iOS or Android phone, I really recommend the GasBuddy app. Finds the cheapest price closest to you. I'm not associated with them, just a happy user.

    Paid 4.19 for #2 Diesel yesterday at 2pm in Dixon.

    It's you hybrid people that are making the government consider raising taxes on fuel.
    As cars get better and better fuel economy, road tax revenues are decreasing. Fewer gallons of fuel sold = lower road taxes collected. Subsequently our elected pinheads under the dome in Sacramento are contemplating raising the taxes on fuel.

    So whenever that happens, we can all thank Chum and his fellow hybrid drivers for screwing us.

    Read in the merc-one shop owner closed shop case he even thought the price per gallon was too much! Was only selling diesel. It was in the 5$s before he **** down.

    It's also the government mandating better fuel economy on all cars, so Chum is off the hook for the blame

    There's a Shell gas station at Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park. It's probably $6/gallon at the moment

    Hell no, Chum ain't off the hook. Just because the government mandates the cars doesn't mean people have to buy them. It's still Chum's fault. He should have bought a truck.

    That's correct. Even when Chum is completely innocent, it's all his fault and he should be punished severely.

    I think I paid ~$3.99 a few days ago at Costco and ~$4.33 this morning at Costco. Quite a jump in just a few days... lame

    Read it and weep

    Edit: Just talked to my wife. Regular at this station is now $4.49, up 8.6% in 4 hours.

    Morgan Hill Safeway, non-member price as of 9:30am today.

    C'mon down for Tarantula Fest or the Hard COrE 100 and get some "cheap" gas on the way home.

    Heading to Death Valley on Sunday. Last I heard (earlier this week) prices were around $5.19 at Furnace Creek. I suspect they are around $5.60ish now. Woohoo.

    There's an Indian reservation on 395 just north of Bishop/Lone Pine. It by far has the cheapest gas on 395. Gas up there before you make the left into DV from 395.
