how can you fuck up a meme so badly :(

[–]Mewse_ 92 points93 points  (5 children)

Ol' good thing/bad thing penguin

[–]eww66 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Wait you don't feel awkward when your gas tank is full?!

[–]ThatJoeyFella 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I thought everybody felt socially awkward after paying too much for petrol.

[–]joshlamm 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The sad thing is, even though you joke like this people actually think that's the name of the meme.

The days of the original "socially awkward penguin" are a thing of the past. We'll just have to deal with this bastardization for now on.

[–]ApatheticAbsurdist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel Bad luck Brian would be better, but still not perfect.

[–]thethreadkiller 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I honestly believe that this meme has simply changed to what you just described.

I don't remember the last time I saw it used correctly. I believe it is adapted to this now, for good or bad.

Funny thing is, you could flip around the text in this and it would still make just as much sense

[–]the_nin_collector 157 points158 points  (84 children)

Really? Gas prices in Japan have dropped 2 yen in the last 6 weeks. 2 fucking yen.

[–]sabre252 130 points131 points  (57 children)

Demand has fallen off a cliff in the US. In some states, it's under a dollar a gallon for regular. It's like the 90's again.

[–]toms47 45 points46 points  (30 children)

Holy shit and I thought we had it good at $1.50/gallon

[–]Akutalji 29 points30 points  (24 children)

76c/Litre here in Canada. Haven't seen gas prices like this since the 90s.

[–]MLG_Obardo 26 points27 points  (12 children)

For Americans that’s $2.03 USD per gallon.


Math: .76 Canadian = .537628 USD / liter

3.785 liters in a US gallon.

.537628 * 3.785 = $2.03 USD

Edit: edited some math to reflect US gallons and changed wording because whopping was determined to be an overstatement

[–]dude2dudette 22 points23 points  (6 children)

A US gallon (3.785L) is less than an imperial gallon (4.546L). So your calculations are off.

I believe the US uses the 3.785L variant when talking about fuel, so 76c/L would end up being $2.88 Canadian and $2.04US/gallon

Still expensive compared to the US, but not quite as much as you calculated.

[–]Killerkendolls 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I mean that's about normal for regular around here in NJ.

[–]nahteviro 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s barely under $3 in Southern California.

[–]badreportcard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Price would be lower if it wasn't for that god damn gas tax "slush fund" that does absolutely fucking nothing. Extra 20¢ a gallon because fuck you new jersians.

[–]fritzrits 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's pretty expensive here in California. It's different per state but he's pretty accurate. I haven't checked the prices in a bit so I forget because I drive a hybrid and fuel once a month.

[–]Numinak 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's only hitting about 1.97 in Seattle.

[–]MLG_Obardo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for this. I’ll edit my comment to avoid misinformation

[–]ballsack_man 2 points3 points  (2 children)

lol "whopping"
I pay 1.3€/Liter for 95 octane. That's 1.4 usd.
Prices have dropped now I think. I haven't gassed up in a month but the website claims it's now 1€/Liter.

[–]Akutalji 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gassed up yesterday, usually takes about $45CAD to fill my little sedan on a normal day....

Less than $30 now.

[–]MLG_Obardo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s $6.41 per gallon. Yeah and gas is like 20 us cents in venuzuela. Relative to the current US Prices, $2.44 per gallon is very high.

[–]fritzrits 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Whopping that's a steal for me. I'm used to paying close to 4 dollars

[–]MLG_Obardo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven’t paid over $2.50 since like 2015 or earlier.

[–]Chevaboogaloo 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Lol it dropped into the 60s in Alberta within the last 10 years.

[–]WesternCanadian 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Yup 2015 was brutal, I seen it in the 50s in Edmonton

[–]iroxnoah 3 points4 points  (2 children)

This might be the final nail in Alberta's oil coffin

[–]bennyllama 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember when it started to drop from 1.00 to like 0.85 and a wave of nostalgia hit me when i first moved to Canada in 2001 seeing those prices posted on a petro canada.

good times.

[–]Phlobot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I paid like 74c for 94 octane and still have 3/4 of a tank. It's been like 3-4 weeks? No idea how many weeks, they've been blending in to eachother. I'd have added fuel stabilizer if I could have predicted this

[–]CandidGuidance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Alberta prices have hit 40c/litre. 40c!!

[–]ironcoffin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

68c/L in Alberta last I checked this am. Heard it was 59 at Costco not to long ago.

[–]NeverRespondsToInbox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

54c here in Alberta.

[–]TheMooseIsBlue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s over $3 in LA still.

[–]VelociraptorMag 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s still $1.95 where I live.

[–]Fly_Boy_1999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can’t wait until summer where the gas will go up to 3 dollars a gallon.

[–]ThZebr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

1.89 here and Im still THRILLED (if I ever need gas again...)

[–]Fabreeze63 15 points16 points  (12 children)

A guy I follow on ig posted a story last night filling up for 26c a gallon. TWENTY SIX CENTS HOW IN THE FUCK. His gas prices are always about 15-20c lower than my area, but I have never seen 26c gas in my life.

Edit: I looked again and it was .299, not .26

[–]ndscable 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The only thing I could think of that would get him that low is if he had points saved up at Kroger or bought a bunch "high octane" items at BJs that would have knocked off 10c a gallon per product bought. Otherwise gas hasn't dropped that low.

[–]danzilla007 11 points12 points  (10 children)

That's fake. There are plenty of gas tracking websites to verify that nowhere in the US is gas selling that low.

[–]Albino_Echidna 11 points12 points  (8 children)

Stockpile rewards for certain stores that team with gas stations, find ~$1 gas, use rewards to get gas for $0.26/gallon.

It's really not hard to believe.

[–]Fabreeze63 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would be more inclined to believe this is the case. I've been following the dude for a couple years now and he's one of my favourite accounts. Lmao if I told him someone said he faked the video he'd probably be like "why would anyone do that?" He's a good ol country boy taking care of his 5 year old by himself and supporting them with his art. Dude doesn't have time to fake videos about gas prices.

[–]CRTsdidnothingwrong 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hmm those usually have a cap of like 20c, but maybe some don't.

[–]Albino_Echidna 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A grocery store local to me caps it at $0.75 per gallon for the first 20 gallons and then $0.25 per gallon over that. So I'm guessing it was something like that

[–]Neltech 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was probably some kind of discount

[–]_el_guachito_ 4 points5 points  (5 children)

It is $.89 for e85 and $1.05 regular unleaded here in dallas Tx .i still have to work so at least I don’t need $60 to fill up anymore

[–]AFuddyDuddy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah... the old days..

Where you could fill your 12 gallon tank, get a pack of smokes, a refreshing beverage, and get change back on a $20 bill.

[–]ActualWhiterabbit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah but premium is still $2.90 in some places. I can't boat on regular.

[–]MaceHiindu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Cries in Californian, still $3 here

[–]Qwirk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

~$3 in Western WA, apparently we didn't get the email.

[–]_Magnolia_Fan_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's killing the ROI on hybrids.

[–]boostedC6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s a station by me (in MS) that dropped to .77

[–]mandy009 39 points40 points  (5 children)

US produces a lot of domestic gas, especially after fracking was permitted in the last decade. We also used to have massive demand before the outbreak. So the change in demand made our supply have a big impact on the domestic market.

[–]Shinranshonin 0 points1 point  (2 children)

However, spot wholesale gasoline has been hovering between $.47 and $.75 for the past 6 week. Here in VA/TN, I have yet to see lower than $1.47. If retailers have a margin of 8% to 10%, there’s little reason the retail should be that high unless refineries and distributors are taking the profit.

[–]nahteviro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don’t forget they still probably have some gas they bought before the prices plunged.

[–]AFuddyDuddy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lot of stations have not sold the gas they bought previously yet, and it's gonna hurt em.

At this point, they are not getting their margin. They are maybe getting 1-2%, and the vast majority of the prices we are seeing on NEW gas is 95% taxes.

Those that didn't sell their gas are gonna take a hit, because legally they can't reduce the price on that batch (ish.... there are quite a bit of regulation around fuel and pricing. You cannot discount the gas. But you can provide customer rewards that discount the final sale price. i.e. <insert big grocery gas here> card). In this scenario though, I'd rather take the loss and get new gas, rather than let that old gas sit, and never get sold.

[–]YouStupidDick 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's 2.30-2.46 a gallon for low grade in most of Arizona....

[–]5262Photog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take that as a win, the entire West coast was $3-3.50 when I drove around the country in early 2019 coming from the east coast. Once you hit Utah/Arizona it's a shitty time to be driving. I did not consider such a long spike in costs when towing my travel trailer, exceeded my estimate by like a 1000 bucks.

[–]OneSpockTwoSpock 20 points21 points  (8 children)

It is absolutely insane where I'm at in the states. 1.35$ per gallon. It was 2.20$ a gallon before all of this hit the fan. I have never seen gas prices this low in my entire life (I'm 25)

[–]timefortiesto 6 points7 points  (3 children)

It’s still $3.50 in Los Angeles!

[–]victorzamora 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but that's $0.60 after you factor out the SoCal inflation rate.

[–]nahteviro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least the ARCO and AMPM stations have started going under $3. But then you have shitty gas.

[–]dundent 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same.

I started driving/working back when gas was over $3 a gallon and I think that set the bar for me. It was $60 every two weeks to work.

So everything below that is amazing. But less than half is insane.

[–]hadie23 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There was a time 6 or 7 years ago when oil crashed and gas prices went down. Till never forget but my cheapest fill was $1.08. it was insane!

[–]OneSpockTwoSpock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That absolutely destroyed venezuelas economy which led to their current crisis. Their economy is almost entirely reliant on oil. There's no telling the horrible mess they must be in now, between the virus and the oil prices

[–]AndrewWaldron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After Kroger fuel points last week I paid like .51/gallon.

[–]El_reverso 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gas where I’m at is around $.70 a litre. My buddy lives in Alberta and filled up at $.55 two days ago. We were paying $1.15ish before all this happened. The taxes on gas are higher than they’ve ever been here and we are hardly noticing because gas per barrel is so low.

[–]Decyde 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We had gas for under $1 a gallon here recently but it's been hovering between $1.09 and $1.29 for the most part.

I don't drive much but I filled up 3/5 of my tank to top it off for $5 and I imagine that's going to take me till June at this rate.

[–]takemetoglasgow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I dunno, I'm seeing it for about 125/liter when 140-150 is more common.

[–]Wildest12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

From like $1.20 to under 70 cents in ns canada

[–]SodWorkLetsReddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like in Europe, the price of petrol in Japan is only for a small percentage determined by the cost of production. Where I live less than 15% of the price at the pump is production costs, the rest is taxes, more taxes, a bit more taxes, and profit margin.

[–]Grizzant 297 points298 points  (45 children)

those two things are directly related...

[–]Excelius 65 points66 points  (34 children)

It's also a situation that is basically impossible for the average person to take advantage of.

It's not like you can realistically stock up on a years worth of gasoline while prices are cheap. You need a way to transport all that fuel and tanks to store it in, and even if you could do that gasoline has a shelf life.

There are some products that have a long shelf life and are easy to store in a regular residential home that you can stock up on when you find it cheap, but gas isn't one of them.

[–]1950sGuy 23 points24 points  (11 children)

so you're saying i should hoard gas..brb filling bathtub.

[–]ewilliam 48 points49 points  (3 children)

You could fill up a big trash can and then offer gas delivery to the wealthy neighborhoods.

[–]Tamparockout17 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Wildcard bitches.

[–]whitemeatlover 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When they try to figure out how to count the gas 🤣

[–]listerfeind 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The EPA would like to know your location...

[–]breakone9r 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I got you, fam.

farts

[–]BillEastwickPhotos 2 points3 points  (4 children)

It would make more sense to hoard gas than toilet paper. I still don't get that one.

[–]Askmehowino 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Minus the fact that gasoline goes bad, sure...

[–]_Z_E_R_O 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Toilet paper actually makes sense to buy in massive quantities when it’s cheap, although not during pandemic conditions. It’s something that you’re 100% guaranteed to use eventually, it doesn’t go bad, it doesn’t need to be climate controlled, and it really doesn’t take up a whole lot of room to store.

[–]squngy 13 points14 points  (1 child)

This is why Oil has a negative price now.

They are literally paying people to take Oil barrels so that they don't have to store any more of it.

Crazy times we live in.

[–]Uberzwerg 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's not like you can realistically stock up on a years worth of gasoline while prices are cheap. You need a way to transport all that fuel and tanks to store it in, and even if you could do that gasoline has a shelf life.

Which in itself is also a big factor in the plummeting gas price.
They run out of storage space.

[–]SeattleBattles 2 points3 points  (1 child)

My friends and I have been calculating how many barrels of oil we could fit in our backyards.

Only problem is that the cheap ass bastards who sell the oil don't include the barrel.

[–]brinz1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The oil is worth less than the barrel

[–]DarthStrakh 4 points5 points  (11 children)

You can grab a couple months worth at most. They have chemicals you cna use to keep gas fresh for upto a year

[–]Excelius 12 points13 points  (10 children)

If you even have a place to store it, which you probably don't.

It wouldn't be uncommon for a farmer or something to have some tanks on their property that can hold a few hundred gallons, but that's far from your average person.

[–]DarthStrakh 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Well I was more thinking a small amount might last you a year of this quarantine keeps going

[–]osee115 5 points6 points  (2 children)

If the quarantine keeps going, there's still no demand for oil so there's no need to store it in the first place

[–]DarthStrakh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hey now. Don't be using logic and shit. That's not fair.

[–]froop 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Anyone with property and a pickup truck can store 55 gallon drums. I'm starting to consider it.

[–]Excelius 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Those drums are going to cost you at least $100 each. A hand pump to get the fuel from those drums into your truck will set you back another $100 give or take.

At the current national average of $1.80 per gallon, you're going to spend another hundred bucks filling up each of those drums.

The equipment costs are prohibitive for a one-time use situation. If you already own the equipment, or see yourself reusing it for years to come, then maybe.

[–]froop 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Fuel drums are like beer bottles, you return them and get your money back.

I stand to save $200 per barrel vs pre-covid prices. A single drum pays for all the necessary equipment. Even a small property will handle dozens of drums with room to spare.

Assuming gas prices do go back up to 'normal' levels within a year, you stand to make an 80% return at least. That's hard to ignore.

[–]ToxicSteve13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lots of work for $80 in savings that you might take over a year to see.

[–]bitsculpt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have 55 gallon drums full of gas. Very rural area. Was just thinking about stocking up but realized I still have gas from 25 years ago.

[–]ActualWhiterabbit 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Still taste good though?

[–]_Zyxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Out of curiosity, how long can gas be kept for?

[–]simplefactothematter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You telling me Sunny lied to me?

[–]HyperKiwi 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Tell that to The Walking Dead TV series.

[–]Excelius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The most recent seasons involved a time jump, and things are far more primitive now. Motor vehicles are almost non-existent and firearms are no longer the primary means of combat.

Aside from Daryl managing to maintain and fuel a single motorcycle for scouting purposes, everyone else is using horses or walking. They've even stripped old cars of their mechanical parts to turn them into horse-drawn wagons.

[–]abdlforever 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Also what's socially awkward about this?

[–]Lord_ThunderCunt 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not a damn thing. This should be Bad Luck Brian.

[–]lonestar34 32 points33 points  (4 children)

Make sure you take you car for a spin every couple of weeks or at least start the engine and let it run for a bit. Keep the engine and internal parts healthy.

[–]Burkett 23 points24 points  (0 children)

It's almost like supply and demand are driving the price.

[–]Mydogateyourcat 25 points26 points  (3 children)

ERMAGHAD CHEAP GAS

[–]ThatJoeyFella 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Still the wrong meme

[–]tedbradly 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This might be the perfect time to buy a bunch of barrels of gas, get a van, and drive around selling it later on. The price of gas is always going up, so it's a sure thing.

[–]rev4587 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ya how socially awesome is it that gas prices are low

[–]Waff1es 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Socially Awesome because gas is cheap. Socially Awkward because you still have gas in your tank

[–]_manlyman_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just go driving, I don't stop anywhere but me and my wife will drive down back roads we have never been down to see where they go some nice fresh air, and it is fun looking at gigantic houses that have recently been built next to trailers

[–]Awfy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As someone who just drives for a hobby, the lockdown is like paradise to me. Less traffic and cheaper gas at the same time is a dream.

[–]Audioillity 0 points1 point  (20 children)

Were still around $6.43 / us gallon (£1.30 liter) here (for standard unleaded) , I miss our prices from 18 years ago when it was around £0.50 a liter.

[–]True_to_you 5 points6 points  (14 children)

Gas prices here in the United States are approaching 1 dollar a gallon. I'm not sure if it'll each other 1 dollar mark though.

[–]Whataboutthatguy 4 points5 points  (2 children)

3.50 a gallon today in San Diego.

[–]JustinMagill 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Doesn't everyone drive Teslas and Pelotons?

[–]Awfy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still $4+ on parts of the I5.

[–]jedimika 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Still a $1.99 in Vermont

[–]ChriosM 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Filled up in Phoenix yesterday for $2.17 a gallon. It was $1.35 a gallon when I started driving in 2003, so not there yet.

[–]nomar383 0 points1 point  (0 children)

$1.85 at Costco by Sky Harbor yesterday. Costco and Sam’s are about 50 cents cheaper than a lot of stations around here

[–]niuguy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You need to remember that where you are isn't the same as everywhere else.

[–]dakupurple 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's been $0.959/gallon for about a week where I am.

[–]marko719 0 points1 point  (0 children)

AZ is still $2.00+ a gallon on average. I paid $1.99 yesterday with my Fry's discount.

[–]DragonflyWing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

$0.95 in Wisconsin.

[–]tookawhile 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw $1.81 here in Connecticut

[–]doddzilla12345 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It’s £1.02 a litre at asda and Sainsbury’s petrol stations by me at the moment.

[–]Audioillity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea, the UK is fairly cheap compared to Guernsey prices.

[–]DannySpud2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's under £1 per litre at the Costco near me, 99.9p. I remember first seeing the price go over £1, never thought I'd ever see it go back under.

[–]Rance_Mulliniks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Around $0.75 CAD/litre where I am in Canada.

[–]pipipikachuuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lowest I’ve seen around here lately is 68.4/litre. Manitoba, Canada

[–]Purple_bastard69 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Don’t let that gas sit in your car too long. The ethanol in it breaks down into water and will damage your engine.

[–]retka 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just add a bottle of Stabil or other good fuel stabilizer, and then run the engine for a bit to circulate it through the system. Will help keep the gas stay longer. Not a replacement for fresh gas, but a bit of a help when not driving as often.

[–]Awfy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gonna use this excuse if a cop asks why I’m out driving.

[–]fat-lip-lover 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol my car got totaled by a drunk driver last week on the first time I had left in over a week. Just in time for the low prices.

[–]Rance_Mulliniks 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's almost like the price is driven by demand!

[–]white_butterfly1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ha, driven.

[–]Joocifer 0 points1 point  (3 children)

It’s $1.26 here in KY. $.96 after Kroger points. As someone who still has to go to work, I’m ok with it.

[–]soundofthehammer -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Holy shit. It's still over $2 in Wyoming.

[–]RudegarWithFunnyHat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

these are the days we notice if the, gasoline cover is sealing enough or if ones gas is slowly evaporating.

[–]OhioMegi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s lower that I’ve ever seen it and I started driving in the 90s. It was 99 cents the other day but I’d filled up the week before at $1.25 and had only driven about 12 miles!

[–]ItsaMe_Rapio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is a weird feeling to drive past a station where gas is $1.70, I’m down to an eighth of a tank, and I think “eh, I’ll fill up next week”

[–]harryvonawebats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I havent filled my car up since Feb 24, and am at home all the time now. I'm hoping I can keep it going till June!

[–]rickityrekt42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dont worry, it's not going up anytime soon...

[–]ThrowThrowThrone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]The_Rim_Greaper 0 points1 point  (1 child)

well yeah, whatya think is making it so cheap?

[–]JustinMagill 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Price war between the Russians and Saudis and lower demand due to less people driving.

[–]pearljamming88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep this is kind of why it’s low lol. All reserves are filled including your tank.

[–]dirtisgood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just bought a old yukon. Once I get it on the road I'm filling up that tank.

[–]mykepagan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In constant dollars, gas is cheaper than it was whenI started driving in 1979.

And I bought a new car just before the lockdown started 6 weeks ago. It is still on the gas that the dealer filled it with (to be fair, it gets really good gas mileage :-)

[–]Accordingtojazzy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me right now.

[–]sr603 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I commute to work in a truck and I’m still working (got pets at home which are birds so can’t take phone calls at home) and I’m so happy with gas prices going down. 12-14 mpg sucks sometimes 😂😂

Yeah and the governement gives me money I can't spend so i'm actually more rich than when i'm working even if I have 250$ less than usual permonth. I feel bad for people managing their money badly with a family cause this could go on 2-3 month and I wouldn't care.

Also, in Québec, gas is now 84.5/L which is less than when I starter to drive in 2002.

What better day for a casual drive than Earth Day!

It’s almost as if those two things are correlated..... what a dumbass post

[–]Pandiosity_24601 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But you’re also not spending any money at the pump.

[–]wallingfortian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Modern cars draw a trickle of power from the battery. You should go for a short drive every week to keep it charged. You don't want to try to go back to work and find you have a dead battery, now do you?

Gas is 1.65 asy my grocery store. I was informed by the cashier I have .70 cents off with grocey points! Had a full tank. 😣

[–]AaronfromKY 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember freaking out when gas hit $3.18 about 13 years ago, and crude eventually climbed to $145/barrel. What a wild journey

[–]Caleb_Krawdad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Almost as if those 2 events are connected....

[–]HeavilyBearded 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just filled my tank yesterday for $25. It had lasted from March 6th utill April 21st.

[–]redundancy2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a Prius and I honestly can't remember when I put gas in last. Still have 2 bars! Plus gas is $1.30/gal here with my rewards thing. Might fill up for $10 later.

[–]OtherMikeP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s why gas prices are so low.

[–]AverageNova73 0 points1 point  (0 children)

With Kroger points, I spent less than $6 on gas the other day for a full tank

[–]EricksA2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm gonna put some in the freezer for later

The definition of an overstocked commodity and a crash in value...

Hasn't dropped much where I live... only globally.

[–]Soggy_Cracker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

drive your car around then lock a few times. Turn the engine over and move the tires.

[–]Saneless 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I filled up on 3/13. Finally down to my last 3 gallons or so, out of 13

[–]Capgunkid 0 points1 point  (1 child)

We had lower prices here in Louisiana. Everywhere I've seen is about $1.59/gal but in the past it's been as low as $1.15/gal.

These American based gas companies are not gonna lower their prices if they just started getting oil cheaper than they ever have before.

[–]Amishhellcat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

probably because they still have expenses tied to the gas station - wages, taxes, rent etc, if they lowered it too much they essentially lower their own income aswell, don't think anyone wants that.

[–]TheRealJammocash 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm essential so still driving a tank a week but hey, it only costs me $11 instead of $25 now. Put the savings in savings.

[–]CapinWinky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My car takes 91 octane and prices have stayed about $2.50 the entire time.

EDIT: The last cheap gas I got was $0.70 in Tifton, GA in 2002. Then it was $0.99 for a few months, then suddenly, $4 in 2003. Took years to taper back down to under $2 for regular. Yet somehow, when I look at historical gas prices it doesn't seem to reflect what I clearly remember. I used to pay $0.58 average for '98 through 2001.

[–]Perfect600 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have been going for drives since i dont want the car to sit for too long

[–]Wildest12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You and everyone else thats part of why its cheap

[–]closeenough12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only at a half tank here, but I need to change out the fuel pump so I can't fill up.

[–]memymomeddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

87 octane is as low as $1.59 in my area, 93 is still over $3.

This is bullshit.

[–]asow92 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That is how supply and demand works my friend.

[–]jondrethegiant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Here in Florida there’s not much of a change. A lot of people here go for drives to get out of the house. They don’t go anywhere, they just drive. My family and I take a drive by the beach every weekend just to take it in.

I bought an electric car like 6 weeks ago.

[–]TigerKingDiamond 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Been keeping my tank absolutely full since this started. I'll even top off after a 5 min run to the grocery store.

Worst case scenario I have a full tank of gas to start the apocalypse.

Best case I have a tank of cheap gas after things start going back to normal and prices rise again.

[–]FunctionBuilt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, how socially awkward to have a full tank of gas.

[–]gynoceros 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Neither socially awesome nor socially awkward.

[–]DU_HA55T2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Everything except premium is down. I'll look at a sign that says $.99 per gallon, pull in only to see premium is still $2.79. Damnit.
