    We have a tremendous "uninsured driver" problem here. Adding $0.25 to 0.50 per gallon, depending on the extent of coverage, would take prices at the self-serve pumps to $2.00 - 2.50 per gallon, not too bad when one considers the overall picture since 20-25% of the vehicles are "uninsured."

    Plus, you couldn't drive to the neighboring state to avoid this; no bridge 2500 miles from Hawaii to California!

    Sheetz in Leesburg - 1.49 for 93 octane (my car requires that type of fuel to run properly)

    On the way to work this a.m., one station selling reg for $1.28 (this was their price last week, too), three blocks away another selling it for $1.60 (last week this station was at $1.31)! Hmmmm.

    In past two weeks, prices paid, for 93 Octane:

    Monroe Citgo 1.51.9/gal
    Absecon Texaco 1.53.9/gal
    Mays Landing Gulf 1.62.9/gal
    Pomona Coastal 1.62.9/gal
    Pomona Coastal 1.56.9/gal (Friday Special)
    Folsom 322 Citgo 1.46.9/gal
    McKee City Sunoco 1.59.9/gal

    So far, since January 2000, after 10,000 miles, Sunoco seems to give us the best gas mileage. (Seinna 2000)

    Lorton, VA Texaco- 89 octane $1.61.9
    Dillion, SC South of the Border- 89 octane $161.9
    St. Augustine, FL Exxon- 89 octane $166.9
    Lake Worth, FL Mobil- 89 octane $166.9
    Lake Worth, FL Chevron- 89 octane $1.71.9
    Saint Augustine, FL Shell- 89 octane $161.9
    Dumfries, VA Shell- 89 octane $157.9
    Branford, CT Mobil(today)- 89 octane $175.9

    One thing that I noticed after I arrived in FL is that the price between 87 octane and 89 octane was 15-20 cents MORE! WHEN did this happen or haven't I been paying attention since I started using 89 octane a few weeks ago?

  • indydriverindydriver Posts: 620
    exits 7 and 11 (Terre Haute) have 87 for $1.199. FD-that 300M will run fine on 87.
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273

    I know. I had been using 87 octane right along, but decided to try the 89 octane to see if my mileage would improve. So far, it seems that it has. I'll keep monitoring it to see if it really helps.

  • indydriverindydriver Posts: 620
    Exit 140, Lebanon area, McClure's 87 = $1.21 on 4/28.
  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    Gas has gone up about 10 cents on grades at this location. Getting ready for summer driving season??
  • mykemmykem Posts: 203
    From 1.519 a couple weeks ago to 1.719 this week.

    ...for 87 octane.

    Far western Chicago suburb.

    I can only imagine how close gas prices are to $2 in the city itself.

  • mznmzn Posts: 727
    Regular is $1.56 at my gas station on Capitol Hill, DC. It seems to be going up up up!

    At one point, I kid you not, the prices were posted on whiteboards above the pump so that it was easier to change the prices!

  • minnbillminnbill Posts: 28
    gas was down to 1.219 for 87 octane a couple weeks ago. Last week was 1.499 everywhere, now this week there is 8-10 cents variation depending where you go. Gassed up yesterday at the ubiquitous SuperAmerica for 1.429. But Memorial Day is coming, and I'm sure 1.50 will be as cheap as it gets this summer...
  • carnut4carnut4 Posts: 574
    After holding steady at 1.65-87 for weeks, it's now come all the way down to 1.57! Hey at this rate, we might see 1.50 gas by summer. Wow. There still seems to be a 10-cent spread between the 3 grades. Cheapest premium still 1.75.
  • mykemmykem Posts: 203
    I know.. yesterday I said 1.719 (+10 and 20 for upper grades).

    Today I saw 1.799 for 87 octane.

    Again. far western suburb of Chicago.

  • prophet2prophet2 Posts: 372
    Prices seem to be holding steady: the low is still 1.709 for 87 in my neighborhood, most others are 1.739-1.769 for self-serve. 91/92 premium all over 1.90.

    Neighbor islands are over 1.90 for 87, 2.10 for premium. But, SUV sales continue on: my sister is looking for a 4-Runner (don't really know why as they're pricey, but she's tight with the buck). If you want Toyotas that badly, you gotta pay the price!
  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    Villa Rica, Georgia....Regular...$1.33/gal. and up from there->
  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    Some retail stations have a 10 cent variance, others 20 cent. I wish some one in the fuel business would read this and explain to us.
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273

    I first noticed the big price difference between 87 and 89 octane when I was in FL last month. There was a 15-20 cent difference between the two that we did NOT have here in CT.

    I don't think ANYONE can explain it logically!

  • agtabbyagtabby Posts: 28
    Always seems +10 cents for 89, +20 for 91 octane. This seems as fixed as the law of gravity.

    Right now in Phoenix AZ good price is 1.35 regular, a.k.a 87 octane.

    BTW crude oil back up to 30 bucks, gas inventories tightest of last 7 years. Expect 10 cent or more rise eventually.

  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    I spied this Saturday nite. A station, just a stone's throw from where I live, sells 2 octanes, 87 and 93. The price for 87 is $1.34 (not the lowest in the county) get this..!...they sell the premium 93 gasoline for $1.39!!!!!! Hello! I want to ask them why, but what if the preceive it as a complaint and raise it to $1.54? I use 93 in my SVT.

    The brand for the above station is called PETRO.. These stations are in W. Georgia, E. Alabama, and N. Florida...anyone familar with them elswhere?
    They have the lowest price often, and seem to break out of the ten cent division in grade pricing. Must be a spot market vendor or something.... also seems like a "Mr. Patel" runs alot of them...

    Know what I mean agtabby, fastdriver??
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273

    YIKES! I think Mr. Patel owns a lot of the gas stations around here too! I've seen that name on some of my gas slips! Is it a common name like Jones or Smith??

    Does the state ever go in to test and see if the 93 octane is REALLY 93 octane? They just had a big scandal about this in NY I think.

  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    Supposedly, fastdriver, the State is charged and responsible for testing. I once saw them run volumn test at the pump (many moons ago). I'm gonna give this issue a little priority this week and see what the State does do......
    Somebody must regulate retailers. Someone must audit the octane at the pump? Good question...
  • wilcoxwilcox Posts: 583
    I keep pinching, but no wake up.....
  • fastdriverfastdriver Posts: 2,273
    Yesterday it was 87 octane $1.69.9, 89 octane $1.79.9 and 93 octane $189.9- back to the 10 cent difference.

  • trippdoggtrippdogg Posts: 19
    in Perth Amboy $1.3199 for regular unleaded premium was only $1.4899
