      $2.43 for regular, $3.00 for 91 or 93, most stations usually have one or the other, but not both.

      Does anyone buy 89? Why does that exist?

      A lot of Chrysler stuff recommends it, usually on the V8s

      I forget what car my parents had it called for 87.. but knocked and pulled power noticeably so they ran 89 sometimes.


      3.25 I think for 93 today.

      It's times like these I'm regretting getting my Golf. You get the size of a small car, with the fuel economy of a midsize sedan or CUV! But dat 5 cylinder tho.

      Diesel is absurd.

      $1.25 for 87
      $1.22 for diesel for the X5...which uses about as much fuel as the Golf..

      I paid just under $4/gallon for 91 here.

      Regarding octane, I was always under the impression that from a barrel of crude you'd get equal amounts of each octane just as you would get all the other byproducts from the refining process. I can't remember where I heard this.

      4.23-4.50 US/Gallon. There's a reason why I have a hybrid.

      5.1L/100km last tank.

      (46.1 freedoms/gallon, according to trip computer)

      $3.33 for 92 just S of Portland. Prices in Portland (Multnomah County) are in the $3.40 to $3.50 range.

      We only get 95 and we pay about U$1.10 per litre, I think that works out to around U$4.18 per US gallon

    14. 04-03-2019 05:46 AM #38
      1.32€/L (Europe)

      That's for unleaded petrol at my local station. Prices have been stable here for months.

      But with Brexit around the corner, it's hard to know what way things are going to go.

      $2.89 for 93 octane when filling up 2 days ago. About 40-50 cents more than in January.

      $1.189/L=$4.51/Gal

      Too bad my car requires 93 octane, so I am paying
      $1.379/L=$5.23/gal

      In Vancouver I would be paying up to $1.73/L=$6.56/gal

      So you need to have an over $5/gal option in your poll.

      I'd like to see prices spike up to $5.00 and the subsequent panic selling of full size trucks and SUVs.

      I need a new truck.

      Paid around $2.60 this weekend for 87, we'll see what it is today

      I think people mainly pay attention to the first digit. When 87 goes up above $3.xx then people will start looking around.

      I paid $3.12/gallon for 93 two days ago.

      14 happy miles.
      ^^ This man knows what he's doing.

      To be honest, I don't even look anymore... it's something like $3.25 for premium but with fuel rewards + T-Mobile Tuesdays I get $0.15 off when I fill up.
      You'd think a 2.0T would get better than 22mpg... you'd also think I could get a better average speed than 35mph for 15 miles....

      The gas station by my house is 2.64 for 87, but they have no fuel.
      https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.azf...6a9ad.amp.html

      Had to go to Chevron and pay 2.85. It was at 2.34 a couple of weeks ago.

      Seeing the mpg’s you guys get in your little cars makes me feel a bit better about the 22-25 we’re managing in the RAV4. We’re so used to the 40+ of the Prius that it’s been hard to adjust our brains even though the actual cost doesn’t difference isn’t really that much.

      If it keeps rising we just put the hybrid back into commuter duty is all.

      My BMW has an 89 minumum, so that's what I put in it.

      I only look to make sure my grocery store fuel rewards points are being accurately factored in. For what i spend there a month, I make sure that I get my 70-80 cents off per gal discount (up to 35 gallons).
      Couple that with below average gas costs where I live and my real per gal costs have just recently gone above $2.
