Default Gas prices...

How's the price of gas where you are? I've noticed that in the past couple of weeks, prices here in NEPA have shot up significantly.

$1.37 for Regular @ Walmart is cheapest. Majors and other "Top Tier" are $1.54 for Regular. Add 50 cents/gallon for Premium.

So what's the gap between regular and premium in your area? For us it's $0.65-0.70, which is BS. Not so long ago it was a 10 cent bump between grades. The lower the gas price is, the higher the percentage of pain the premium buyers are paying.

I think it is around $0.60. Don't really pay attention to that as I don't have anything that requires premiums. BTW, nice subtle brag, dataheim.

The point is this....when gas was over $4.00/gal, $0.65 differential is high, but it is what it is. It's a percentage of regular.

Drop down to $1.69/gal for regular and still charge $0.65 differential for premium is complete bullshit.
