    $1.59 here. But, our town is higher than anywhere else in 100 mile radius. You can buy it as low as $1.09 in our state. Most in the vicinity are around $1.39. Our gas is, and always has been, higher than anyone else. We have a state university and a military installation. The fuel suppliers have always felt they could gouge since they have what amounts to a captive audience. In the 1960's gas wars saw it lower than 19 cents/gallon throughout the state. I don't think anyone in our community ever got below about 25 cents.
    We are running up Kroger fuel points faster than we use them. Just got an email from Kroger saying they would allow April points to carry over until the end of May. We will easily have $1.00/gallon in fuel points the next time I need gas in the truck. I just filled my wife's car a couple weeks ago. I think she drove it two blocks since. It's a 2015 and she just turned over 20,000 miles. Those 20,000 include two trips to Minnesota, one to Cheyenne, one to Georgia, one to Louisiana, and at least two to Kentucky. When she was still working, her office was 4 blocks from the house. Now that she's retired, her only "important" trip was her ladies group Monday morning coffee. That's not happening since the stay-at-home order.

    I like people who get their priorities right.

    Damn gas prices have almost doubled in a couple of weeks, sitting between $1.64-1.79 around here now.

    Most I have ever paid was in Ireland in 2011 it worked out to just over $9 US a gallon, glad I was driving a car that was getting 45-50 mpg at the time.

    The morning police report shows a 25 year old arrested for this. "Attempted driving while suspended. First conviction. Bond $500." The 'attempted driving' caught my eye. You are either driving or not. Was he extremely intoxicated and couldn't get in the car? Was he in the car and trying to use the tire iron for an ignition key? '... attempted driving..." I may have to attempt to attempt driving some day......
