Angry How much are you paying for gas today

With all the uprisings in the Middle East the price of gas has gone nuts
I woke up to $1.21CDN a Liter that's about $4.80 a Gallon
so what are you paying in your area ??

Just bought some today and our price here was $1.07/L which works out to $4.28/US gal. I am just hoping it doesn't get back to pre-recession prices ($1.42/L or $5.68/US gal) that will really hurt the economy!

For those who may not be aware of it, here's a link to "gasbuddy.com" - a website for finding pricing at local stations.

I found it as an app for my smartphone and it comes in handy when in unfamiliar areas. You can tell it to search "nearest my location", and it provides a listing based on your GPS location.
