That seems amazingly cheap. The price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline on the November futures market is currently $2.02. To that you add 38.4 cents per gallon gasoline tax (federal & Texas state tax) plus approximately 25 cents sales tax (8.25% in Houston) which already comes to $2.65 per gallon. That leaves only 34 cents per gallon for distribution which includes the cost of the jobber (company that purchases and delivers the gasoline from the refiner to the retailer) as well as the profit and costs of the retailer and refiner.

You can check your local prices before you fill up at http://www.gasbuddy.com/.

Just type in your (or work's) zip code.

gas buddy is saying there's a place for $2.99 across town, but you'd be barmy to go there...

around here, a place just went down to $3.12 which I thought was really good...so filled the tank up, it was running on fumes though

Fort Lauderdale $3.40 ish. Why has it not dropped to $2.50 or less? Barrel of oil down to $87. Seems like they put it up in a rush & down at at a snails pace.
I sometimes wonder, who is looking out for Joe public.

I think we're on our own mate.

Think it's time to circle the wagons-seriously.

I just wish I could find some, a lot of the pumps in town are closed, those that aren't only have regular gas, my car needs premium, I managed to find one pump that had silver so I put in a quarter of a tank, hope it's ok - Chapel Hill, NC
