I thought it would be interesting to track and see what people are paying for a gallon of gas in other parts of the country. Gas prices have been falling like a rock the last couple of weeks especially. We went to Albuquerque today to make a Costco run.

We filled up for $2.76 a gallon for regular unleaded!

Buffalo NY... I think it's around $3.60 but I don't pay attention as I drive a plug in hybrid and re-fill every 1000 miles during the winter (due to heating the car) and 2700 miles this past summer but I fully charge the car every day.

There's an election coming soon.

We dropped below $3.00 ($2.92 for cash/debit) at my local the other day, though my 'neighborhood gas station' is typically well below average for most of the DC area.

I don't think I've seen sub-$3.00 gas since Katrina. But man, it wasn't long before that when gas was below $1.

Mike, here in central Ohio we are paying about $3.00 for regular unleaded. We dipped down to $2.90 last week. The prices bounce up and down weekly. I try to buy on Monday thru Wednesday. The prices frequently seem to jump toward the weekend.

Still $3.49 per gallon here, I typically have to buy around 2,000 gallons per month. I sure miss the $1.85 days!

I haven't seen prices this low since the recession back in 2009.
