    A recent trip to top off my gas tank found me paying $4.01 for a gallon of regular. That is in Riverside, CA.

    So, where do you live and what is it costing you to keep that fossil fuel drinking car running?

    Are you giving up other things to pay for gas?

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul

    £1.30 per litre. Very approximately, that works out (if I've done the maths correctly!) at $8.07 per US gallon!

    Gasoline here in Houston, Texas is around 3.60 a gallon for regular, which I burn in my truck. However, my motorcycle uses premium which is about 3.85 or so. But, my truck gets 22 mpg average while my motorcycle gets 46.

    In Eastern North Carolina it's about $3.70 a gallon. Both South Carolina and Virginia are much cheaper as the Tax is lower.

    Here's a list of companies that Imported and American Gas Companies.
    If in America - buy American.

    These companies import Middle Eastern oil:

    Shell................................... 205,742,000 barrels
    Chevron/Texaco.................. 144,332,000 barrels
    Exxon /Mobil....................... 130,082,000 barrels
    Marathon/Speedway............ 117,740,000 barrels
    Amoco................................ 62,231,000 barrels

    Companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:

    Sunoco....................... 0 barrels
    Conoco........................ 0 barrels
    Sinclair........................ 0 barrels
    BP / Phillips................ 0 barrels
    Hess. ....................... 0 barrels
    ARC0............................ 0 barrels
    Maverick...................... 0 barrels
    Flying J. ................... 0 barrels
    Valero.......................... 0 barrels
    and I believe Murphy's should be on this list.


    And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela by Dictator Hugo Chavez who hates America and openly avows our economic destruction! (We pay the Chavez regime nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)

    If the Canadian dollar is at par with the American, then we are paying $4.56 per U.S. gallon at the pumps. That is in Alberta where gas is cheapest.

    Filled up the rental car yesterday in Los Angeles at $4.17.

    Passed the station here in town today at $3.29 (10 cent discount for using a supermarket card from the posted $3.39)

    High prices have caught up with Wyoming while I was gone to the left coast.

    I pay $4.10 a gallon in Madison, WI for premium gas. It costs about $65-$70 to fill up a tank of my car, about $50 for the wife's (she uses regular and has a smaller tank).
