The uproar over my statement - "crazy prices" is quite hilarious, Please understand : here in US average price per gallon used to be around $1 for a regular. In the past two years it went up almost 150%. Most areas in US unlike much of Europe do not have decent mass transit systems in place except for few major cities like NY, Chicago, Boston and Washington. Our intrastate train system here is a joke. Therefore we spend most time driving. Gas price at $3/gallon even within US average salary is still crazy for the amount driving is required to just get to work. ( I drive 45 minutes no traffic one way) "leon" <laldynospamhlink.net> wrote in message news:XWXvg.2623$bP5.1207nospamread1.news.pas.earthlink.net... > hi all > > I have 03 9-3 linear and absolutely love it, I always used plus or super > grade gas in it, however lately due to crazy gas prices in US, I'm > considering to switch to regular gas. my question is - will it affect > overall performance or pick up torque for this car?
