The lower priced gas stations are still at $4.29, but I've seen a couple approaching $4.50 -- not f@%king good!

Yeah it's holding at $4.29 here for the past 2-3 weeks. That's the most stability I've seen with these gas bastards.

Spoke too soon -- went up to $4.35.

Well, on the Kansas City, KS side of the line it is still $3.99, give or take a few days and it could drop 7 cents and then back to $3.99.
However today I crossed the KC, MO line and it was $3.92. Always cheaper in Missouri and their roads prove it too!! ha ha, but I'm not about to pass on some cheaper gas and I needed a fill up too..... :clap:

Really sad when we think $3.92, think about it, frickin' $3.92 a gallon is cheap!!! :cry:

No action here since Mid-July!
OK, 7-11 down the street is $3.75, but then six blocks north and east are two different gas stations that are both going for $3.86!
Go figure!

CNN yesterday said prices have "plummeted", supposedly .24 cents worth in the last month, but not here.....do you all see that?
The prices I posted yesterday are still the same! Strange.......usually all the stations are in alignment with each other instead of .11 cents apart! :?

3.499 a gallon at Murphy Oil at Walmart in Kennesaw, Georgia. That's with the Walmart card,
without it you would have to pay 3.529. :P

Whats everyone's thoughts on Bio-diesel fuel or Hybrid cars?

I like the concepts, yet have not implemented them yet, wondering if they are good alternatives.

Well, for around $1,000, you can basically mod chip your Hybrid to get 100 mpg. When the government put down that all cars needed to reach 28 mpg by 2012, all the manufacturers tuned down the hybrids. Prior to the Government mandate, some hybrids were being sold at 45 ~ 55 mpg, then th next year they down graded them to 34 mpg.

Bio-Diesel would definitely help the US Farmers who are currently being paid not to grow more than "X" amount a year. You can buy a bio-diesel kit for less than $500.00. Corn oil, vegetable oil, etc mixed with some lye and other ingredients. I've mixed a batch here and there and used it on Diesel Generators without any ill effects. One of the firms I contract out to just leased (3) diesel VW Gulfs and are implementing this now to see if it is cost effective. Alas, I won't know how good it is for another 6 months or so, but it does seem to be great benefit with minor hassle. We shall see.

Wow, 100 mpg, nice, is that any Hybrid?

DrM, are we able to convert our gas engines into Bio-Diesel engines or Hybrids? Sorry, I am not informed on these issues. I hope its cost effective, greatest luck.
I just hope the powers that be do not try to squelch this. One last Q, is it true when they run, the bio-diesel engines emit a vegetable/ fried potato fragrance?

DrM, vous êtes l'homme, merci.

Yes - just about any hybrid can be modified that is currently on the market. Ford, Toyota, Honda, etc.

Bio -Diesel, unfortunately, needs to run on Diesel cars. I'm not an auto guy but their would need to be several conversions needed to make a gasoline engine into a diesel engine - carb or fuel injection I'm suspecting. As for the odor - probably depends upon the type of oil being converted, but I'm gonna suspect the lye and other ingredients are probably going to nullify most odors. I've only experienced it in use on a generator so I wasn't standing around sniffing the air :ROTF: Perhaps next time I will.

Well, folks, I paid $3.47 at my local QT and on the radio they were saying just around the corner in KC,MO it is $3.33!!
Gee, could $2.99 gas be far behind???? It is always cheaper in MO than KS, I think we have higher taxes, and thus better roads as well...

Ditto on this coast too. It amazes me since the coasts ship gas into the midwest - how come we have higher prices then they do? :wtf:

I have seen gas prices here in the midwest at way over $4. The high today, according to a website was $4.39. Please someone tell me this is just temporary, the $5 gallon gas is just a myth, right? :D

I just learned that speed limits between 25 to 60 mph can reduce costs, true no?

Anyone see the electrically powered concept car: Chevy Volt? It actually looks cool.

Yeah, they spiked right back up the day after I posted last Wednesday 9-10-08, they have been going up a dime every day!
We are now at $3.66, it has come down some again, tomorrow it will be back up a dime probably!! :x :wtf:

I seriously need to ask the group a question here.

I have been watching these threads on gas, but it makes me wonder.
Day in and day out you hear everyone bitching about gas prices, and thats understandable.

But the question is, exactly how much can we do about it?
More precisely, at what point do we actually stop buying gas.............?

I myself am just biting the bullet, as I figure I use lass gas than most on a daily basis, but really, am I going to stop driving? NO, its just not possible.

For months now I have pretty much avoided these threads, and stayed out of the bitching, simply because I just can't function and make money without my share of gas, so I buy it no matter the cost.

In the end, if I have to start sacrificing other luxuries to pay for gas monthly, then thats what I would have to do.
I don't think it will ever come to that though, especially in this country.

But I wonder what others who are not as fortunate as I am, are going to do if it continues to inch higher in price.

Greetings Great Mr TZ DZ,

Welcome to the discussion. This thread is a minor aid in helping all of us ( WE hope ) to try to
find alternates to the rising fuel prices. Or solutions to save our money. Great Dr M, for instance,
has been talking about alternative fuels, and has been doing something about it. WAY TO GO!!!

Thats one route to save.

Like you said, we just may have to tighten our belts in other aspects of our lives to pay for gas.

There are many ways, that may seem trivial, yet can add up, for instance :
1. Use coupons at grocery stores, read and use the grocery store ads for sales and specials, buy clearance items ( if not past expiration date)
2. Use only cold water when you wash your clothes in your laundry machine.
3. Some people air dry their clothes, I do not do this yet.
4. http://www.wikihow.com/Save-Money is a website I just found that offers some good tips.

There are many more ways, these are just some suggestions I have heard and read about, and personally do.

If anyone else has $$$ saving tips please share. We would really appreciate this. :D :D :D :D

Mr TZ you are ZONE $$$, this is less about ranting, and more about solutions, we can use your superior thoughts too. :D

Well, I have always liked to know what everyone else is paying around the country----UK lads should chime in as well---it is just interesting to me. Then the electric car and how we can conserve is neat to read up on as well.

Now, the last week gas here in KC has gone from $3.29 last weekend to $3.06 this weekend!! It has been jumping down by leaps and bounds!!!

$3.29 around here. I hope this is a good sign that prices are dropping. Can we get below $3.00 please? :D

I hope we never see $5.00+/Gallon.

Anyone got some $$$ saving ideas????

Do what I do. Walk more. I live in the city and have just about everything I need within walking distance so I never drive unless it is absolutely necessary. Basically, if where I am going is less than a mile away and I don't have to carry anything over 25 pounds, I walk. Weather permitting, of course. ;)

I plan to move, hopefully sooner than later. I live in the midwest, it snows too much. If we can sell our home for a good price, we just may move
west. I like the warmer states: Cali, Arizona, Nevada. If we do move, we are definitely going to try to live closer to stores, and close to our jobs.

Thanks for the advice, great advice.
