This morning as I filled my car with some of the cheapest gas I have seen in a long time I thought about a post that I wrote a little more than two years ago.
Back in October 2010 I wrote about Expensive Gas.
In a moment I will show what I paid this morning. You will see that it may not be as cheap as what you are paying, but California has some of the most expensive gas in the nation.
I did see one friend post on Facebook this morning that he paid $1.699 in Oklahoma.
You can see here that I paid $2.419 this morning when I filled up. If I could have waited until this evening I could have paid only $2.319, but I didn’t know that this morning and also would have not been able to make it to work and back. Also, gas is always about 20 cents more expensive near work.
Here is the price for a tank two years ago. More than 60 dollars for a tank of gas and my gas tank is not that large.
Two years ago I paid $64.15 for a tank of gas and this morning only $32.10.
Half the price!
I am not sure how much further prices will drop. I do know that California gas producers were just hit with new fees that will be passed on to consumers. They will mostly go unnoticed as the prices drop, but watch out for the future.
How much are you paying for gas?
