    2.89 for reg i think like... 2.97 for 93.

    when i was going to NYC this weekend we went on the merritt and it was 3.05-3.15 for regular. Ofcourse passsing the first one and second i figured it'd only get more expensive as i get closer... ended up paying 3.15 a gallon...... only to find the next station was 3.07. fuckers.

    Sea level has higher octane ratings because of oxygen in the air. you don't go that high because you don't need to.

    Don't get all jealous.

    We should do this. The 15th is a Tuesday, so if you fill up on Sunday,
    this shouldn't affect you too badly.
    * Let us agree. And if you can send this to as many as you know,
    then even better. MARK THE DAY ON YOUR CALENDAR!!!!
    Passing it on, tell your friends....
    NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
    Don't pump gas on MAY 15th
    In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in
    protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon
    overnight.
    On May 15th 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas
    station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon
    in most places.
    There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet
    network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
    If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take
    $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies
    pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May
    15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for
    at least one day.
    If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldn't) resend this to
    all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th"

    yup, what day you fuel up doesn't affect price so long as the demand and use is constant for the month, year

    everyone rides a bike to work for a week, that wold hurt them. But you can't get some Americans off the couch once in 6 years, so good luck
