    They aren't directed at anyone in particular and if they were then I wouldn't always respond but when people say "Stop complaining" when it's clear that nobody is complaining then I will let them know that indeed we aren't complaining but giving opinions on the topic at hand. If you can't see the difference between correcting someone and blatantly causing trouble then I'm not sure what to tell you, I'm sorry my posts arent the nicest but this is the internet, grow a thick skin or you're gonna have a bad time.

    Back on topic please

    In my state prices go up uniformly(if that's a word. Regular is always the cheapest. Around here regular is $2.97. The middle grade is always $.10 above that and premium $.10 above that. I've been paying roughly $3.15-$3.25. One of the cheaper places to get gas from!

    I would advise anyone who is considering a car change, exclusively for better mileage, to actually do the math involved for your monthly mileage and mpgs. You may lower your payment by a few bucks a month, and save a few on gas, but by the time you extend a new car loan out a few years, you may still be well behind. Many people fool themselves with this line of thought, so that they can justify a new car purchase.

    Yeah but at least with diesel you know the price is already much higher then regular and won't drop anywhere near that in the future.

    When regular hits $3.80 a gallon you know that it will eventually drop down.

    That is very true! I use to have a 1997 Tacoma 2x4 pickup and that thing was the worst on gas..I got like 17mpg in the city and 22 on the highway or somewhere around there, I traded that in for a tC that gets 30mpg so it's quite the difference

    Well hey, I bought a WRX. Not even brand-spanking new. Could've had a brand new N/A Impreza for less, with better mpgs, auto optional (as is being discussed elsewhere...) and have a grandpa "car". I knew I wanted a "real" car and that's what I got. MPG's are not really my issue. Sure is nice when you can get by on less fuel, but that's really proportional to the car's fun factor. I think we'll see more cars are going to be built with more exotic materials in order to reduce weight and help with mpgs. And/or allow for smaller engine and HP. Turbos are also on the move into main-stream, helping with efficiency... Gas prices will continue to rise, and there's nothing to be done about that. Gotta pay if you wanna play.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Some of you guys are lucky with your low prices. Premium in my town is $4 right now... and that's good (diesel is 10c more). It's only a few years ago that regular was $5 here.

    I live on an unpaved road. When it rains, idiots in crappy old trucks and Jeeps come flying down, just to splash through every puddle on the way. Like they're still 5 years old. I like higher gas prices. When regular went up to $5, I had fewer morons flying down my road.

    Living on a dirt road must suck, especially when it's wet, must be hard to keep your baby nice n clean after a bath/detail

    Yeah, it's frustrating. Just driving down my road in summer leaves a freshly-cleaned car covered in a layer of dust. In winter, it's covered in mud. So I can't make it from my driveway to the main road or vice-versa without it getting dirty. Ever. I've hand washed my car once in the 18 months I've had it. Every other time, it's been put through the car wash at Costco. I've resorted to just getting it cleaned on the way to a job, knowing that I can't get it home clean. Pretty demoralizing.

    This is from the middle of summer after having it washed maybe a week or two prior. It's what happens when it gets covered in dust, then we get a light sprinkling of rain. Ridiculous.
