San Jose, CA Update....

At most major brands like Chevron and 76, regular unleaded is running about $3.50 a gallon. Discount brands like Valero and Rotten Robbies are around $3.30 a gallon. The best price for gas I've seen is at my local Costco where regular unleaded was $3.12 a gallon.

Thanks gents for posting that information about the cost of operating a vehicle.

the last car I bought was a low mileage 03 Toyota Camry in late June 2011. It had only 64,000 miles. It was listing $9700. But I did not want to spend more than $10000. We worked out a deal with the dealer and I paid $10,252 out the door. Tax license documentation included. Cash talks.

There's no new vehicle tax in the US. There is sales tax by each state., license and document fee and whatever the dealer will tack on. But it should not amount too more than $2000.

Insurance is based on where a person lives, It varies wildly according on what kind of coverage you need & your driving record..

13,09 SEK/liter for regular 95 this morning, cheapst I've seen in years. Equivalent of 1,42 €/liter or $6.81/gallon.

Yesterday afternoon when I went to work unleaded plus was $2.79 a gallon. After work gas jumped up to $2.98 a gallon. That's .19 cents a gallon. How's that possible? I don't know.

By the way, our fuel prices always, always end in .9. It's a common enough trick among retailers to price things at, say, $14.99 or $14.95 instead of $15.00, and I assume that's true in other countries as well, but I know it doesn't happen in Canada with fuel prices and I notice it doesn't seem to in Europe either. Presumably because a jump of one cent/penny/whatever a liter is actually bigger - nearly four times as big, if you're in the same currency - than one cent per gallon so they couldn't fine-tune their prices as much if they limited themselves in that way.

Usually our fuel prices do end in .9 of a penny per litre. That pic I just posted ends in .7, presumably so that it appears at the top of the list on price comparison apps etc compared with others selling petrol at £1.229

Yeah, same here.

Some stations sell fuel at 1.xx8 just to appear at the top of the list of all stations selling at 1.xx9.

Well, that's interesting.
In Canada you'll see .2, .4, .whatever.

Couple of days ago in Poland, diesel and EuroSuper95 prices dropped below 5zł, that is €1,18/litre, $5,68/galon. Analysts say they will continue to drop.

That's 'cause you're not in Connecticut any more.

EDIT: That's for Xusein. And I meant that it's safe to assume Connecticut's nowhere near as low as $2.99.

Conversely, no movement at my friendly neighborhood Sunoco this week.

Connecticut has $2.99/gallon at a few stations. Most stations are between $3.19 and $3.39.

I just paid $2.95 a gallon for unleaded plus. I've got to make another mini-road trip into Illinois tomorrow. I'll see what their gas is priced.

Imagine that!
Seriously, I've been driving around the Northeast for 20-odd years now and gotten into the habit of never buying gas in Connecticut if I can avoid it: it's always been more expensive there. And I just passed through every New England state except Rhode Island last week. Prices were in the 3.10s (mostly) in Vermont and Maine, paid $3.30something in Massachusetts.... I didn't actually see any gas prices in Connecticut - just crossed the state on I-84 - I just assumed that they'd be paying Massachusetts prices or (probably) higher.

Well, I live in and have to buy gas in this state with one of the highest fuel taxes, but I have an efficient car, and there are no tolls and roads are well-maintained. I dislike tolls much more.
