it's a few pennys per gallon between different grades, and non-alcohol types. I'm not sure what type I got. It's $5 -$10 a fill up higher than the summer depending on which vehicle I drive.

I did a test once between 10% alcohol and 100% real gas. The cheaper gas went less miles than the 100%, enough so that the money was exactly the same per mile! Go figure. I don't put alcohol fuel in anything at the house, mowers, saws, motorcycles etc. There is a way to remove the alcohol but it is a bit laborious. But you can do it if you have a very special application. You can even put "lead" or octane (anti-knock) back into fuel to help antique motor valve life.

you are trying to give me a heart attack aren't you?

Every post you have posted since 1955 has had something to do with money or the cost of something. You were just kidding about not paying attention to the price of gas, weren't you?

I'm a captive buyer, can't do much. Worrying 1/10th cent

per gallon is beyond my abilities, the math hurts my head. On a trip to Orlando with the family a mother in law squawked about gas prices at every station trying to pick the cheapest gas. "That one it 3 tenths cheaper!" I had to pee in some shady stations because they had gas tenths cheaper per gallon.

Finally I snapped, and gave her a little math lesson. The Suburban we were in got about 20 mpg on the highway. It was a 1,000 mile trip or so, that's 50 gallons of fuel to get there. Two tankfuls maybe. At 5/10th a cent per gallon (that's a nickel for us hillbillies) that's a whole $2.50 cost savings for the trip. Turkey legs at Disney World were $4, it wouldn't buy one with all that effort at savings. There is a difference between being cheap and thrifty/practical. It's a shocker but I'd don't look at gas prices. I need it, I'm there, unless it's some goofy price I'm in for 20 gallons. A nickel a gallon will net me $1 for the whole for the tank but I like a well lit place with a clean bathroom.

I believe

5/10th a cent isn't a nickel, even in Hillbillie land..

but you are a pretty sharp banana Irv. It was a nickel a gallon savings x 50 gallons total = $2.50

All the guys at work discuss gas prices, "so and so has it 3/10th cent per gallon cheaper on the other side of town, you better go fill up!". Not thinking their truck holds 21 gallons bone dry. So driving out of the way so far nets them $0.63.

Aren't gas prices always at $ x.xx9? The tenths never chang

clean and well lit? Holy chit! I have been missing out on the finer things in life. On some our trips to the HHC with Kase, Puffy and me, when we stopped at service stations at 2 AM and they were closed but the pumps still open, we gassed up while Puffy did some things back behind the building that I can't put in print.

$3.45 cash. $3.65 card as of 5:17 AM today.
