No charge....

Free - park a van with a small hole over the station's in-ground fill cap, drop a hose into the octane tank of your choice pump it up and fill up as many 5 gallon gas cans that you can find!

Actually history has shown every time we start messing with those people they stick it to us. The government doesn't mind it's a win win for them, higher prices mean more tax revenue.

Here in Minnesota it was up to $4.54 for bp93 starting around May 15th thru the 29th and then it started dropping and as of yesterday bp93 was $4.04. The news says it was due to some refinery maintenance. Gas prices yoyo here in Mpls all year long, it's Bull$hite

That's about what it is here in NW Indiana. I just bought a new Duramax and diesel is only $3.83 here right now and it gets about the same mpg as my SS so I am driving the diesel to work now, giving the SS a rest.

This reminds me of when I was in high school now 30 years ago, I had a Chevelle that I swear you could watch the gas needle go down as you floored it.
The first thing we would do on a Friday and Saturday night was go looking for "free" gas. Kinda stupid as I look back on it.

Anyway 93 is 3.69 right now, new royal farms opened up and is keeping it low for a little while.

I always get a chuckle out of these threads. The prices posted are still lower than the ~$5.20 gal (converted from price per Canadian litre) I made a special trip in a heavy misty rain to take advantage of at the Shell gas station (it was for my wife's Audi). And that is for 91 octane. Our price includes the price for gas, federal tax, provincial tax, and than HST (a tax on those 3). And we have all the oil we could ever use in Alberta so there's no reason, other than GREED, to charge so much for gas

regular (87oct) would be ~$4.58

Makes me buy less, SS stays garaged more, I buy less at a time for the truck and try to ride motorcycles everywhere.

About that in Alabama, I don't look, when it gets closer to $4, I look and can probably tell you how much it is at three different stations

I just paid $4.199 in Hawaii for 93, but that was also on base. It's about $0.20 more out in town.

I have been working on the BP project for the last year. It is way over schedule and over budget by billions. That and some explosion or fire at Marathon in Detroit is what they claim is the cause of high gas price in the region.

It does not mean more revenue. Tax is a fixed amount per gallon, not a percent of gas cost. They get same tax revenue regardless of gas price.
