    its good to see new england playing its part to keep the national average high


    Is that legit the cheapest gas near you?
    I can get it for ten cents less at mobile. That BP price is for cash, it's ten cents more if you put it on a card.   The bigger pain is kerosene, I'm buying it in mass 15 gallons a week and pouring it into the tank up north, I might keep that tank mostly empty as I expect the oil to get stolen this winter with the seasonal camps
    Jeeze man, it’s like you live in medieval times.

    Even cheaper one light south at Costco, or one light north at Buc-ees.

    That makes no business sense whatsoever, especially if they have the lowest price.  :confused:

    They have always done this, people turn the pump on for the fill and go inside the convenience store.  Beer, scratch. Things to buy. It's not like you are going any where. But now you know it's rigged. Still five bucks for premium across the street that just sells gas. Would also mention we had a guy dragged out of the shop in cuffs for buying drugs and groceries for drugs way after hours on a shop gas card.

    Ah, that makes sense.
    I would buy a fast food item from the place next door, then set up a lawn chair in sight of the Sunoco attendant and eat eat while my tank filled.   =)

    $3.09 for me at the closest station, which is half a mile away.  Not bad.

    what doesnt make much sense is the price difference of regular and premium has never been this out of whack before, 70 cents to a buck difference up here and im sure i can find it more if i look for it

    I just like to complain about the price of premium gas vs. regular.  Because it is in my DNA to complain about everything.

    Around here the regular (87 octane) to premium (93 octane) up-charge went from $.60 to $.70 in the past couple of months.  Corporate greed at its finest.

    Was getting over 18 on average, now about 15.5 with winter gas. My old Dakota at 125 HP would drop to 11 mpg with. Winter gas. 510 HP with the rover gets over 20 mpg in the summer on the highways. I mostly drive highways.  For what it is, it's not bad on gas. Not sure if the south ever gets this crap gas in the winter but betting not

    There are around 20 different gas formulations to meet VOC requirements in various states, regions and seasons.  Winter gas has less btu because it has shorter chain hydrocarbons which hold less energy but vaporize better when it’s cold - it’s for performance believe it or not.  Summer gas would have less VOCs and more btu but some engines and fuel systems would have a problem with it. 

    Summer blends freeze at higher temps as much as -40F while winter blends can be -200F.

    Before ethynol this wasnt much of a problem,  not really noticable if you kept the tank about a quarter full. Never seen a study comparing reg gas to ethynol comparing the mileage drop and emmisions with a six mile per gallon drop or more on a low mpg vehicle. Performance wise the old Dakota couldn't pass a 1950s milk truck in the winter on ethynol
