We have always wanted to move to New Hampshire and now is starting to look like a good time with fuel so cheap there! This morning Shell regular pump your own $4.59.9 per gallon. I am begining to think part of the rising costs is the salery the stations now have to pay to have a full time person on hand all day to keep changing the posted and pump prices!

The most we saw from RI to Tenn was $4.39 for gas. There were plenty of places that had gas in the 4.19 - 4.25 range

Today in mid Missouri: gas $3.799; diesel 4.559. It's agony each time we pump, but it must hurt more in other places, according to your reports. We'll be heading up North, Minnesota near the Canadian border. Fuel gets hauled a long way up there on less than interstate roads. I'm expecting much higher pricing when we get out of Missouri. ~G

I don't get it.....
Diesel in our area is 5.29-5.49/ gal. (Norcal)
Two Chevron dealers 4 blocks apart.....5.29 and 4.89. I bought the 4.89...why such a difference? I don't get it.

Your post piqued my interest so I did some research. This is pretty much what I found out from our auto mechanics and on-line.

"The biggest consideration when buying gas is buying the octane rating your car was designed to use. Engines are tuned to operate with a particular octane level. Octane rating determines how well or efficiently the fuel ignites/burns. Lower octane the gas burns faster. Higher octane the gas burns slower. Engines designed to use high octane or premium are higher compression. If you use a lower rated octane fuel in a high compression engine, it will knock, and not perform as well. If you use a high octane fuel in a lower compression engine you are wasting your money. The first consideration is buy the fuel octane rating your car was designed to use."

So, I guess I should have purchased a lower compression engine in the first place....who knew gas was going to go so high? Thanks, paula

Connecticut diesel is again 4.999. Worse is that it's all the junk VLS stuff so I have to buy additive on top of it.

Talked to a mechanic today, replacing alot of fuel pumps because of gasket issues.

Here in East Tennessee which covers an area 50 miles east of Knoxville to Bristol, and North and South state line to state line.
Fuel is running 3.79.9 87 octaine, to 4.05 93 octaine, 4.45 for diesel, and this one is the hardest to keep up with because it seems to change a couple times a day.

I was in a Marathon station in Central Michigan yesterday pumping $4.01 a gallon unleaded regular. When I finished and hung up the dispenser, the price at the pump and the sign out front changed to $4.19.

Went I went inside to pay, the cashier said the owner had just called and told her to put in the "weekend" pricing. Got to love them tourists. Ooops -- that's ME!
