Man-I don't know what everyone else is paying, but here in SoCal, (North San Diego County) I just paid $3.21 this morning! Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick! (my apologies) And they say it'll go higher. Even my sweet old Prelude doesn't get good enough gas mileage for these prices. What's everyone else paying?

Prices are nuts out here in N.Y. and N.J. I know N.Y. is around 3.40 a gallon and in jersey is 10 or 15 cents cheaper which may change during this week, I think!! I know the prices are going to go higher and higher!!

in Europe we have prices from about 1 euro till 1,5 euro per liter.
its about 4,5-6$ per galon
The reason why high gas sucks here is because we have no mass transit system worth a squat like most europe does. There is NO mass transit i can take to work (30 mi one way). My town (20k or so people) has no taxi service, no busses to go to the next city, and our train tracks (in Elizabethton) haven't been used in years. Trust me if there was a mass transit system in place i could use I'd be on it in a heartbeat. I wish we'd get some sort of good mass transit going in my area from city to city. America may have mass transit in cities like New York, but a lot of people in America live in smaller towns and transit to the larger cities...where you have to drive to get to work. In my opinion, it is ridiculous that probably about 1,000-2,000 people in my county drive 20+ miles to work in the same city and have no mass transit to get there. :(

Yeah, in places like London you really don't need a car. Outside of commuting to and from town, the tube system is so efficient you could survive on that all day.

I couldn't believe how cool that was. It sort of explains why most English working men are so skinny. (all of the walking to tube stations)

Yeah the Tube maybe ok in London, but the Metrolink in Manchester where I'm from isnt as good, I still use my car for all transport needs, even if we have seen our fuel rise to 93.9p a litre! I'd say were the highest in the world for fuel costs!

But remember there is always this!
