Default Re: Gasoline Prices

Hybrids just can't output enough HP which is why I will never get one. They do have great gasoline mileage but I'm into performance too. Cars like Lancer Evolution, Subaru STi, and SRT-4 give a little ways in gas, but have outstanding performance. I think out of those three, the SRT-4 has the best gas mileage @ 22/30 city and freeway respectively. It has 230 HP and this bad boy is all performance with 3 stage kits added to its line of power. This is a well balanced car with adequate gas mileage and excellent performance. Man don't I sound like a car salesman?

why would you move to canada for something like that? It isn't likely to happen because I think the bottom may fall out of the oil market. About $20 on the light sweet crude price is speculation.

That is nothing close to what I'm paying. I wish it was like that here. At $2.99, it's pretty much $3.00 a gallon already. It took me $28 to fill up my Corolla today and it need it bad because I keep getting that dummy gasoline light lit by the guage. That will probably last me 3-4 days.

I like to see if there are any other part of the US paying around $3.00 a gallon? I'm assuming there will be a gradual increase all over the US especially now that summer is coming.

Then again, their cars a lot smaller, and they don't use them that much. In fact, most citizens in London don't own a car. It's useless, with the Underground, taxi's, and the buses.
