What was the gas peak price per gallon in the Bay Area circa 2008/2009?

The highest I paid per gallon for gas in 2008 was $4.499 at a Valero in Cupertino in July 2008. The highest I paid in 2009 was only $3.199 in Sept 2009. And in 2011... only time will tell.

I keep 10 clams a week in my pocket just driving a little slower because of a great app I found in itunes called MPG Gas CalcuSaver. This app shows it only takes me a couple extra minutes of drive time a day to save a lot on gas - this is a big help these days with high gas prices. The app is easy and totally worth it.

Situations like this is why I'm glad I'm a cyclist.
