Paid $4.17 for 87 regular yesterday, was $4.11 a week before same "BP" place. That was the cheapest gas withing 135 miles of us. Elizabethtown, KY was $3.99 recently-heard from a friend. 
 
In CA I fail to understand how lower hourly workers live? My cousin in SD, CA they owned their own home in town since the mid-1960's and recently moved far from main part of town to afford to stay in CA. When one of my sons was in the Navy in SD, CA, he told me you had to be at least an O-5 or O-6 to be able to afford to be anywhere close to the Naval areas. Meanwhile he and another JR officer lived on toney Coronado Island in a rental  cottage that cost a 
$half-a- $mil$ as they were pulling extra quarters and shared the rental. My DIL, a teacher worked for a flooring contractor there too so lots of money in, then lots back out, but life was good for them in LALA Land :D...

Cal. is getting crazy, back in the 60's it was a good place to be, I was playing rock and roll, you could hitch hike any where, surfing was good. Not anymore. I was just back in Ar. what a difference. If I did not own a house here, things would be different. :o

NW Ohio jumped from $4.35 to $4.79 yesterday for regular 87 gas. Never seen a jump like that after the holiday weekend, normally it's the Wednesday before.

Same thing in Dayton, DWyatt. I was driving by my normal fill-up spot and noticed it was 4.79 for the cheap stuff this morning. Ridiculous.

I live on one of the Ozark corp lakes.  For some reason hardly any boat traffic this past holiday weekend when normally it would be a mad house.  Only saw a couple of jet ski's.  I would guess the recreational boat business is in a recession at present.

I keep my boat in a slip at the marina where I can only buy gas at the marina pumps.  I was scared to ask what the price was this past weekend. >:(  That's ok because I can always use the kayak. ;D

A friend was in Germany last week.  He told me the gas price there, converted to American dollars and gallons, was $8.95 a gallon.

The boat business is Booming here on this lake.  My Nephew is in the jetski business, and they sell anything they get in.  They sold a 74k pontoon boat this week.

Gas went up 20 to 30 cents around here before the holiday and diesel went down about 10 cents. $5.20 diesel and $4.20 on the gas. Lots of campers and boats on the road around here this week and last week. Schools all out now around here and lots of people on the road. Fuel prices don't seem to be keeping any one at home around here.

Saudi Arabia is agreeing to pump more oil, but they are raising the price above what they're selling it for now, so it doesn't look like fuel prices will go down any time soon.  Demand is still very high.

I don't see busy roads around here. I also am not seeing hobby farmers making 20 trips to the house every day like they used to. How can you be working and running to the house every 20 minutes?  :D

I live on a dead-end dirt road. 
Heading towards 10 homes above me. 
Yes, on the ones that leave the hill 2-3 times a day.
Sometimes I don't leave the hill at all. 
Not many days I leave the hill twice in one day, unless something breaks down.
We use to be on the road all day. Just go!! We have got back on that.  :(

One thing that I enjoy about the gas prices is the peace and quiet now, there are no teens racing dirt bikes, 4-wheelers & side-by-sides up and down this little town road I live on!   :)

What bothers me worse than putting gas in the car is filling up 5 gallon jugs to mow the lawn, just seems worse.
