It's been almost a year and exactly 50 cents per gallon since the California SUV Fill Up Index was last published here - sorry about the delay.
There used to be two lines in the table at the $75 and $100 levels, however, the former indicator (getting away at under $75) has dropped off the bottom.
All totals assume a bone-dry tank and regular unleaded gasoline which goes for $3.90 or more around most of the state, except for places like Costco where you can still get it for $3.80 or maybe a little less (see California Gas Prices for details).
The table has been updated to reflect 2008 models. Regrettably both the Hummer H1 and the Ford Excursion that had previously topped the list were discontinued in 2006 and 2005, respectively. The Lincoln Aviator also bit the dust a couple years ago.
