    We filled up last night. I think we'll see $3.00 gallon by tomorrow.

          I saw it at $2.38 yesterday, and I filled up. I didn't top off, but got enough to last me until Friday (pay day)

              Most of the places I passed this morning were actually down about .$.05 or so. I was surprised at that as I was expecting it to go up because of the hurricane. Luckily I filled up Saturday for $2.38.

                My dad filled up three vehicles yesterday evening - and managed to get the bargain price of $2.45/gallon.

                He passed the same gas station today and someone was changing the sign to $2.69/gallon.

                  I was shocked on Saturday when we returned from Wisconsin. Last weekend we spent in Chicago and it varied between $2.89 and $3.09 for regular. Then the whole week in Wisconsin it varied between $2.65 and $2.74. When we got home Saturday afternoon it was $2.39 and still was about 15 minutes ago. Let's be thankful we aren't in Chicago or Wisconsin.

                    Fuel Efficiency Tips

                    All Equivalent Gasoline Savings based on gas at $2.20/gallon.

                    Observe the Speed Limit
                    Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph.

                    Each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.15 per gallon for gas.

                    Observing the speed limit is also safer.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: 7-23%
                    Equivalent Gasoline Savings: $0.15-$0.51/gallon

                    Remove Excess Weight
                    Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially heavy ones. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your MPG by up to 2%. The reduction is based on the percentage of extra weight relative to the vehicle's weight and affects smaller vehicles more than larger ones.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: 1-2%/100 lbs
                    Equivalent Gasoline Savings: $0.02-$0.04/gallon

                    Avoid Excessive Idling
                    Idling gets 0 miles per gallon. Cars with larger engines typically waste more gas at idle than do cars with smaller engines.

                    Use Cruise Control
                    Using cruise control on the highway helps you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, will save gas.

                    Use Overdrive Gears
                    When you use overdrive gearing, your car's engine speed goes down. This saves gas and reduces engine wear.

                    Keep Your Engine Properly Tuned
                    Fixing a car that is noticeably out of tune or has failed an emissions test can impove its gas mileage by an average of 4.1 percent, though results vary based on the kind of repair and how well it is done. If your car has a faulty oxygen sensor, your gas mileage may improve as much as 40 percent.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: 4-40%
                    Equivalent Gasoline Savings: $0.09-$0.88/gallon

                    Check & Replace Air Filters Regularly
                    Replacing a clogged air filter can improve your car's gas mileage by as much as 10 percent. Your car's air filter keeps impurities from damaging the inside of your engine. Not only will replacing a dirty air filter save gas, it will protect your engine.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: up to 10%
                    Equivalent Gasoline Savings: up to $0.22/gallon

                    Keep Tires Properly Inflated
                    You can improve your gas mileage by around 3.3 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.4 percent for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. Properly inflated tires are safer and last longer.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: up to 3%
                    Equivalent Gasoline Savings: up to $0.07/gallon

                    Use the Recommended Grade of Motor Oil
                    You can improve your gas mileage by 1-2 percent by using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil. For example, using 10W-30 motor oil in an engine designed to use 5W-30 can lower your gas mileage by 1-2 percent. Using 5W-30 in an engine designed for 5W-20 can lower your gas mileage by 1-1.5 percent. Also, look for motor oil that says "Energy Conserving" on the API performance symbol to be sure it contains friction-reducing additives.

                    Fuel Economy Benefit: 1-2%

                          It would help a lot if the gas stations would start coating their nozzles with vasoline.

                            I purposely went home and got the T'Blazer and filled up. $16.00 for ~6.5 gallons of gas.
