Gas stations are highway robbers. after the last price increase most never went down. I just got 92 octane for $1.62 at the local cheap Chevron. it gets as high as $1.89 for the same gas. I'm in northern Los Angeles county.

Re: what are the gas prices like from mi to al?

If you are going from Michigan to Alabama you obviously won't be going through Texas, but here is the situation here.

Regular unleaded is $1.45 average.
I have seen a lot of the time that when you get into a town, the prices are cheaper if you get off the highway and drive into the town a mile or so.
This is not always the case though.
Last week I was headed down to Austin on I-35 and at one truck stop the price was $1.27 for regular.

I guess it is just 'How lucky are you?'

I hope the prices don't go up any more, but I am sure they will.

Oh, by the way, If you can find a Sam's club with a gas station the prices are usually 5 to 10 cents cheaper.
The drawback about Sam's gas is that you have to be a member to get their gas.
They only have two grades though--regular and supreme which cuts out the mid-grade.
The high octane stuff is about 15 cents cheaper than the regular stations though.

Anyway, have a good trip and drive safely.

Just came back from seeing the folks in NJ and the cheapest that I paid was $1.37 (in SC), and the most was $1.49 (in PA). This was for regular. I took the truck, not my jeep.

As you leave the Midwest "wally the wallet" will wink at you. The Midwest has the new reformulated gas which costs more ($1.89 for 87 octos in WI). Maybe you could take down an 18-wheeler and buy some cheap gas and bring it up here and sell it for a profit. Get gas, get fumed, and burn some hydrocarbons.

A 1.40 a gallon WOW i am in the wrong state. Here in michigan its 1.98 for the cheap stuff and 2.24 for premium!! I heard we had a pipeline burst somewhere between here and ohio so thats why we went up a little the past couple days. Still way too much no matter what the excuse..

<font color=purple>You'll probably run East of us, but in STL it's $1.55-1.65(9) for the cheap stuff & $1.75-1.85(9) for Super. Illinois is higher by about a dime-$.15.</font color=purple>
