Compare Local Gas Prices



If you're worried about gas prices (and who isn't?!) this link will help you out.



Enter a zip code and it tells you the gasoline prices at various stations in that town and gives you a map to find them.

Gasoline prices for 42240 (Hopkinsville, KY) range from $3.59 to $3.79 tonight. In other words, $20 buys, at best, about 5-1/2 gallons.

This link was posted on the Hoptown Hall Forums tonight by Yojohn.

It was not that long ago I can remember gas in Hopkinsville at
99c a gallon.
Over here we are paying something like $8.25 and even more for diesel!

Hi, Limey. I read that the trade-in and resale value of SUVs and large pickup trucks is dropping, due to the amount of gasoline they burn. I suppose that means we'll never sell our old gas-hog of a truck. We only use it when we need to haul something, and fortunately, that's not too often. I think it gets about 10 mpg.

Its a good time to buy a truck if you have a use for one. I've always thought of trucks as farm implements, not as trendy transportation. Many city cats with trucks never haul anything.

You are quite correct, PT.
