Yup, mine was $6.26 for regular unleaded... and they predict it will jump up to $8 later this month. Funny how high it gets right before everyone goes on summer break... :dry:

Masa-

You must be using regular? My car only takes hi-octane and thats like $7.99 a gallon right now.

First of August it will be at least 200-yen a litre.

Glad for public transport here.

At least in Japan, you get FUNCTIONAL public transit. Transit in the valley is absolutely abysmal...

I swapped the 3.55 gears for 4.10's in the Mustang before gas skyrocketed :doh: . Curiously enough it hasn't had an adverse effect on my fuel economy: I still get around 20 mpg around town. Gas is +/- $4.35 for 93 octane in Dallas.

I think I'll get a Yaris or a motorcycle for the commute when it hits $8.00 - $10.00 (oh, and a supercharger for the Mustang!:hubba: )

I'm paying around $4+ here (Indonesia). Dang! lucky for me I rarely use the car. I use my motorcycle to go places, great mileage ;)

Gas has gone down to around $4.05 getting better but man still not what it was just a while ago...

I think, anymore, that the whole issue of gas prices has turned into a pseudo religious crusade among commuters. I live in the US, and our arrogance about driving big, sexy cars and trucks has finally caught up with us. Now we're whining about how gas costs $4+ a gallon, but Redrage is right... Just wait until it hits $8 a gallon. Whole economies will fail.

See, now you can actually justify getting that blower for your Mustang, because you won't be driving it that much anyway. Why not soup it up to the extreme? Just take it out once a week to breathe and she'll live forever!
