    Average is around $3.40 right now but I found a station today at $3.29.

    I'm in the same boat, I'm interviewing for home health. I have an SUV; if I get the job and stay with it long term Hubs will get me a little commute car.

    $3.09 a gallon here.

    Did you see the movie, Who Killed the Electric Car? I've been upset ever since I saw it because of all the money Americans have spent on internal combustion engines, not to mention the cost to our health and the environment.

    Around $3.25 for regular here in Reno. There's about a $0.25/gallon difference though, depending on where you go. I find that http://gasprices.mapquest.com is pretty accurate - I toss my city, state, and zip in there and go the the cheaper stations! Anything to save some $ while I'm in school.

    $3.15 to 3.23, a little cheaper 30 miles south. A lot cheaper across the lake in Vermont.

    I just paid 2.99 today - the gas station 1 mile from it was 3.09 a gallon. I was thrilled with the 2.99!!

    I used to do home health as well as supervisory visits, it got too be too much in gas and wear and tear on my car. Now the hospital is only 5 miles away.

    The cheapest I saw today was $2.97. Most are a good way over $3/gal. I drove 500+ miles for work in the last 2 weeks. And I have an SUV too. We get the IRS mileage allowance...48.5 cents/mile. I hope that they bump that up now that gas prices are sky rocketing.

    Let's just say I've already sold my first born child that isn't even conceived yet. $3.69 in SE Indiana, and that's the least expensive. It cost me $45 to fill up my little car. I can go to the next town over (about 20 miles) and get it for $3.49 but is it worth 20 cents?

    I'm tempted to go buy a hybrid. My only concern is if they go fast.

    I don't have a hybrid, but my little Mazda gets about 30 mpg .... not too bad. That's why I decided on that rather than one of the cute little SUVs that I really wanted to get.
