    This morning I saw regular unleaded at one station $1.899 and diesel at $2.299. Both in Lewisburg, KY a small town that has a bank, elementary/middle school, convenience store, a couple restaurants, a small used car lot, a couple churches and small family owned grocery store. They are normally $ .20-$ .30 a gallon higher than larger surrounding towns. It seems this time it's the larger towns that are gouging people. Walmart is usually the cheapest around. Lately Walmart has been as much as $ .10 a gallon higher than the convenience store in Lewisburg. I was just by a truck stop about a mile from my house awhile ago and their diesel price was $2.449. If you wanted the un-taxed off road variety it was $2.499. No tax and $ .05 a gallon higher. Off road is usually about $ .30 a gallon less so there's no doubt they are gouging people that are stupid enough to buy off road. I use diesel to heat my home but, I'll buy the taxed variety as long as the prices remain like this. It will save me money and help with road improvement.

    Hi FordMan:

    $2.759 in San Diego, CA is about as cheap as I have seen. With Oil costing just $20/BBL, it should be about $1.75 here and $1.00/gallon around the country. :(

    I refueled last week at $1.649 in central New Mexico and $1.75 in Southeastern WI.

    My wife just brought to my attention that at least one station here in Russellville, KY is now $1.869 so I'd be very surprised if Walmart hasn't also dropped to that price. I've been saying for the last few months that I believed retailers have been holding out on the public in order to increase profit margin but, we all know they wouldn't do anything like that. Part of it may also be wholesalers but not all of it because Lewisburg, KY only has one gas station at the convenience store and they've been cheaper than Walmart on several occasions lately.

    My Dad's not on here, but he's picking up E0 in OK at $1.28/gal.

    Not much change here in Phx. Down to about 2.70. We were around 2.85 a couple weeks ago.

    I haven't been in OK since the early '80's but, I remember even then gas was cheaper there than here in KY. Hopefully those prices will be coming to a station near me soon! If we get down into the $1.70's that will be the lowest I've seen prices since before they went over $4.00 a gallon.

    I had to go out today and run errands. By the time I finished the Versa was down to about an 1/8 of a tank showing on the gauge. I was going by Walmart anyway on the way home so I pulled in and filled the tank. Their price was $1.869 a gallon. The recent warmer temps are bringing my mileage back up. This tank was the best I'd had since 10/29/19 at 48.745 MPG.

    The lowest price in Everett, WA region is $2.35 with other lower priced stations moving up toward $3! As normal in our region, stations still sell gasoline well beyond $3.

    We're seeing about $2.20 in SE Idaho. We just had a series of gas tax hikes that boosted the price here a lot. Idaho went from one of the lowest gas tax states to one of the highest. On the plus side, we have a gasoline distributor that distributes E0 in all grades from a refinery in Montana. There are a number of stations that sell E0 at no surcharge to E10 here--all grades.

    1.60's and 1.70's around here. Great, but I'm not using much except for the mower.

    Stopped in at Walmart awhile ago to pick up a few things and noticed their price was down to $1.699. This is the first time I've seen gas this cheap since before it went up to over $4. a gallon. What's that been 20-25 years? With the mileage I'm getting in the Versa my cost per mile gasoline wise is less than when I bought my first car in 1977. The first gas I put in my first car was $ .569 and the car I bought was a 1977 Buick Regal with 350ci/2bbl/automatic that got about 13-15MPG. Of course at the same time I could have bought a new Honda Civic and could have probably got 40+ mpg in '77. I did look at the Civic in '77 and if I recall correctly the EPA rating was either 40-42 hwy.

    Edit: I just did a web search and found that a Chevy 350/2bbl had 145 HP in 1976. My Versa is 109 HP and probably doesn't weigh but about half what the Buick Regal did. I probably actually have more power per lb in the Versa than I did in the Regal.

    Finally starting to see some significant reduction in the Phoenix area. A small mom-and-pop 76 station was showing $2.45/cal, but QT and the like are $2.55 at best.

    I have lots of places to go. Just got to stay away from authorities. They say to go for a walk, but they have the really interesting parks, rec, & wildlife areas closed. But, we have to stay away from the coronavirus, most of all.
    Take up astronomy. I just went to the Moon, Jupiter, moons of Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Betelguese, Orion, Pleiades, Hyades, & Venus. Venus is now showing as a fat crescent. Hey, have you heard. Betelguese is brightening back up. All that mystery of why it was dimming & now they say, it was two variability modes, that coincided at their dimmest periods in their cycles. Seems they could have figured that out, many months ago.

    Was $2.25 when I filled up a week ago here in Eastern Pa. About a 25 cent drop, but diesel has gone down nearly a full dollar.

    Another update from Russellville, KY. Went to get some lawn mower gas this morning it had dropped an additional $ .03 since yesterday and is now down to $1.639. My wife, my mom and myself went out riding Saturday to pass some time. It was something we could do and not be exposed to other people. The only time any of us were exposed to others was when I went into a grocery store to pick up a few items we needed. At least gas is cheap enough again that we can ride around without it costing a fortune.
