$3.50/gallon seems cheap to a Canadian. We pay by the litre, which is about 1 US quart. Right now it's $1.18/litre here, so that's about $4.72/US gallon. Our dollars are pretty much on par right now. We cry too every time we pull up to the pump!

Since we left NH we've spent $960 for gas, covered 6,500 miles and averaged about $3.35 per gallon.

We are at Canyon Lake, TX and gas is $3.29, it's $0.20 a gallon less than our last stop at Somerville, TX.

Based upon these numbers and assuming the price of gas will stay in this ball park we should spend about $4,000 for gas over 11 months.

For perspective if we had stayed home we'd probably would have driven a similar number of miles over 3 months and spent the same amount of money without the joy of being on the road. If we were home working we'd have driven twice this number of miles.

I paid $2.82 yesterday in Fort Morgan, Colorado. Nobody has ever come up with a good explanation why gas is cheaper here than in other places. But who's complaining?
