The Price of Fuel

Today I "bit the bullet" and filled up my car tank with gasoline. I have never spent $35.45 to fill up any car I have owned before! On Tuesday, when the tank was about 1/2 full and gas was costing $2.69/gallon, I thought about filling it up. But then - I procrastinated. Big mistake! The very next day it rose to $2.99. Well, today the price dropped to $2.89 and the needle on my dash was about to "beep" with the warning that I'd have only one gallon remaining.

Now, I realize that other parts of the country (and world) are paying much more than we, but somehow that didn't make me feel any better. I'm curious - - what is the going price where you live?

We just went under $3 in Seattle. Good thing I am walking so much.
