Are we the leader with ridiculous gas prices?

Hardly,  I did a road trip to California last month,   price jumped a dollar at the California/Oregon border.  One of my sons lives in North Hollywood,   gas prices are north of $6 around him,  after being close to $8 for a while.  He had several fill ups of his Camry that totalled over $100.

The GasBuddy app is useful.

Prices in Seattle range from $4.99 to 6.09 according to their data.

I get 40 miles per burrito.

Of course burritos cost more too now.  The BurritoBuddy app is your friend.

In Canada its about $6.40/gallon with the liter/currency conversion

The roads and highways are still full, and people are still speeding, so gas is still functionality cheap.

Anyone paying $5.75 is a dumbass who canít use the internet. I just paid $4.96 yesterday, and I was running low so I went to the first random gas station, a 7-11. In Seattle. People need to stop being lazy and whining so much. Seems like itís always the same few people.

Yes, but $4.96 is still crippling to us in the States, who aren't used to it.

Crippling? Ridiculous. My annual commute is $600 more if gas is $5 instead of $3. A person would have to make far less than minimum wage for $50 per month to cripple them.

Gas was $4.55 in Idaho, I was there a month and drove a total of maybe 150 miles, it's nice to be retired. I am also in no hurry to fix my broken down Suburban, been driving a 6 cylinder Escape, 4 cylinder Ranger and 4 cylinder Celica. I will probably save enough money to pay for the $600 for my rebuilt Suburban Transmission and hopefully by then the price will be back down. Probably sell it though anyway.
