I live rural the closest station to me (5 miles away) is $2.99 a gallon regular with ethanol. The next closest stations (another ten miles) are about$2.50 regular with Ethanol

I go to the outskirts of the city about once a week and make it a point to fill up there. That about $2.25 there You have a thirsty 4x4 truck with a big tank saving .70 per gallon adds up fast!

Y'all are paying that much for 92 octane? Have never tried driving my Vette on that.

What do you use in yours? I put 'mid-grade' in my Vette most of the time which here is 89 octane. I'll use premium when it gets cheap or if I plan to be playing around with the car.


Premium is 93 octane here. Cheapest near me is $2.07.

I found in my '05 the premium fuel increased gas mileage enough to cover the higher price. About 10%.

I meant to say that I've never used regular. I always use premium in the Vette. Never know when you may want to play.

I've been checking that out on our 2019 Acura RDX but nothing conclusive yet. Like the Vette, premium is "recommended" but only 87 octane is required. Since gas has been cheaper, I've been using premium. At first it seemed to help but my last highway trip my average dropped.



I don't get the vette ('07) out on the highway often and in town I don't think it makes much difference unless I drive more aggressively than normal.

Yes the folks that live in CA or NY are probably getting the shaft. Did I miss another state?

Pennsylvania has the highest State gasoline tax in the nation.
U.S. states with the highest gas tax and price 2020
Pennsylvania had one of the highest taxes on gas in the United States at 59 U.S. cents per gallon. In comparison, Alaska has one of the cheapest state gas taxes as of January 2020, at 14.4 U.S. cents per gallon.Feb 4, 2020
https://www.statista.com/statistics/...ax-and-prices/

I did see regular at $2.429 today.

Heating oil at my favorite source had a "today" price of $1.629 per gallon on 500+ ( I have 1100 gallon capacity )
