Yesterday it was:

$2.74 --87 octane
$2.84 --89 octane
$2.94 --93 octane

These prices were in the suburbs....the city, you can automatically add a .15-.25 city premium to those prices posted above.

I haven't been out yet to see if the prices have increased yet, but like Roger, I topped off all three vehicles to hopefully weather any pricing storms.

Yesterday I filled the 'ol Eurovan with Premium (because I love her and I'm dumb). Mobil on California and Diversy= $3.19 p/g. To fill van= $62.41.

If my van would run on methane, I'd have it made, due to my intake of all spicey foods, garlic, beer...well you get the idea. I'd probably have plenty left over for you kind folks as well.

I haven't been out yet today but the local news is saying nothing about prices, so my gut feeling is if it is up at all, it may be minor. I'll know more in a couple of hours. I followed up on that rise in price quote last night and after asking around I found that the local managers of all the QT stores here in St. Louis were asked to prepare their signage tags to handle a price rise of $2.00, which would have put us at $4.69.

Hi, Chris! So, when you come over, will our "high" fuel prices seem "low" to you? Locally, our diesel went from the $2.60ish range to a high at one station of $2. 75.

not buying it

I envision a room full of oil tycoons cheering on these storms as though they were watching the NFL playoffs. Hurricanes in the gulf are nothing new. This gouging is just crazy. We are being conditioned to accept it and it really ticks me off.

Hi there;
just a correction, I've made a mistake in my evaluation €/$;

1€ = $1,25 and not the opposite so the results are:

for the unleaded : €1,22/liter or €5,53/gal or $6,92/gal !!!!!
for LPG : €0,45/liter or €2,04/gal or $2,55/ gal ...

You can see that results are worst yours so all people continue to drive without restriction; Even with our low consumption , driving cost a lot.

Sorry one more time for the mistake;

You should plan on buying at least a hogshead (about 7 firkins) of gas for that van. Bring dollars.

Delaware To Florida

Last week I pulled the Bambi from Delaware to Miami Beach, where I am right now. The regular gas prices ranged from a low of $2.64 - $2.95 in Delaware, to $3.19 (somewhere in Georgia) on I-95, to a low of $2.89 in South Miami Beach. The prices have remained stable here since I arrived on Saturday morning.

We overnighted at a Cracker Barrel in North Carolina, caught a few winks at a truck stop in South Carolina, and stayed the night at a real dump of a "campground" just south of West Palm Beach (listed in the AAA campground book). Driving I-95 through West Palm Beach to Miami was an adventure I wouldn't care to repeat. The road conditions were horrible. I'm at a conference at the convention center, and staying at a hotel. The Airstream is tucked nicely away in the corner of a hotel parking lot, and looking lovely sitting under some palm trees. I even found an electrical outlet nearby to keep the reefer running, the Fantastic Fan ventilating, and batteries charged. We're going to start winding our way back north to Delaware on Wednesday, possibly via RT. 17 along the coast.

Does anyone know whether taking the Florida Turnpike (RT. 75, I believe) out of Florida would be a better alternative than I-95?

We're in no hurry.

Southwest Florida is at $2.75/ gallon for the Wal-Mart 87 octane, up to $3.15 for BP 93 octane. Diesel is around $2.85-$3.00/ gallon.

After increasing the price $.60 a gallon the day Katrina hit, our stations are holding steady this time. I am always amazed at how coincidental these increases are. Even in a Metro area this size it appears that all the stations, regardless of supplier or distributor, have the exact same wholesale price increase at the exact same time and all change thier retail price at the same time. I wonder if the steady gas price this time has anything to do with the govenor's warning about price gouging?
