    right now nebraska has one of the highest gas in the country because of the flooding in kansas.im not sure what it is but i think it is close to 3.35 to 3.45(give or take a litle) a gallon.

    i hope everybody down in kansas is ok.

    It was 3.49 per gallon here yesterday. It is a big crock the gas companies are shooting us...the coffeyville refinery effecting the price by about .50 per gallon. I call it a plain old greed factor by them enabled by our politicians. We need a campaign like the had if Floridia a few years ago - THROW THE RASCALS OUT.

    A month ago I gave $4.45 at one place at Hana, Maui. But the going price at most places on Maui was $3.76.

    $2.86 here at Walmart with their 3 cent discount.

    Weeping Water, NE was $3.29 this morning...
    BP here in Omaha was $3.54 this morning...
    Bucky's down the street here was $3.27...
    Conoco about 6 blocks away was $3.45...

    Hard to imagine there would be such a differnce between stations. Reckon someone is "gouging" a little bit. Remember the last time we had the "shortage", BP gouged the heck out of us here in the Omaha/Lincoln area and got their knickers kicked when some of the local politicians found out. Maybe it needs to happen again!

    i work at a store in omaha, and we have a gas station. from the way i understand, the science behind alot of stations setting prices, is look across the street. what that station is at, were gonna match it.

    you gotta take in effect also, omaha is a bigger market, they are gonna get the gas first, so the price raising may have not it the small towns yet, just wait. i live in fremont, and work in omaha, it happens all the time. and yes, why not gouge it, us idiots who do drive a half hour to work everyday, gonna buy it huh?!! damn it anyway.

    You absolutely right, takes awhile to catch up to the smaller towns. I'll still drive the 30+ miles, like the peace and quiet that far out!

    According to the AAA, Nebraska does have the highest prices in the nation right now.

    http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/070716/ne_gas_prices_nebraska.html?.v=1

    "Nebraska edged Michigan to take the dubious honor of having the most expensive gas in the nation, according to a nationwide AAA gas price survey released Sunday. At $3.34, the average price for a gallon of gas in Nebraska was down a little less than a cent from Saturday, but Michigan was down more than a cent and slightly lower than Nebraska."

    Sorry about that. We are at $3.15-3.20 in the KC area.
