In my town, 3.71 to 3.89 for regular. Cheapest in rhode island is in river side at 3.55 a gallon, to 4.49 in west greenwich. 3.68 to 4.17 for midgrade, 3.79 to 4.46 for premium, 3.82 to 4.36 for diesel.

It's almost cheaper to buy gas in massachsetts, and cheaper then conneticut, and it's more expensive then the national average.

DD said she paid $3.30 a gallon yesterday at HEB while the Valero near me had it for $3.49, and those two places are only about 1/4 mile apart. She'll probably get gas on the southside Wednesday morning, as it tends to be cheaper there.

MYR
Cheveron here is $3.56 a gallon.(Liberty)

Chevron in Lumberton 40 miles away(I had to go last Friday) was $3.36.

Dont know why the big gap---but it is my money.

NW WI..... 8/10/13...... E10 = $3.64-9.......

I did a road trip last weekend and early week. Doing some tractor store, implement shopping, and parts hunting....

One tank away from home, I ran across E15 at a casino station for $3.40-9
One tank of that to my destination and another tank of E10. Then a last tank of E15 to get home on.

Of the 4 fill ups.... My Dodge (2009) ran like 33.2 a gallon on the E10. And the two tanks of E15 averaged 31.8 a gallon.....

Now I haven't crunched the numbers to see how that part of it worked out.

The E85 product at that casino station was about $2.65 a gallon..... They had E30 also, at a price between the other two E products.

Keep safe......

8/23/13...... NW WI...... E10=$3.54-9

I was surprised it had gone down to this....
Just now on the late news they are saying there could be as much as another 25 cent a gallon drop eventually.... I don't know what kind of time line "eventually" amounts to.....

Hope it is soon....

Good luck

Works for me,although I go so little anymore.

High around here----is about $3.16,not bad either.

10/12/13..... NW WI..... E10=$3.39-9

WOW..... Campers.... This is an all time low in a long time here....
Off road diesel is still at $3.45-9..... But harvest season is starting up real good here.

There was something said on the news that I didn't get all of.... It had to do that the government shut down is a big factor in making gas go down.... Now will that all change if or when we go into default ???

I'm pleased for the break in price at the pump, but confused and don't understand what is making this happen..... ??

I would have thought, any government issue would make the stock market drive up the price of crude for most any reason, no matter how significant or not..... And we all know the pump price only takes a nano second to go up for every cent the crude price rises......

Details, facts...... ???

Sept / oct always see drops - as supply increases. School started. Vacation over equals less driving and therefore less demand. That good old supply demand curve never ever fails.

10/28/13....... NW WI...... E10=$3.33-9

SCORE........
I also had enough points on my card from the new grocery store that opened there own gas/convenience store to bring the final price down to $2.57...... And I was a lot lower than I usually let it get, so I had to pump about 15 gallon.... So all in all it was a real swoop.....

(doin the happy wallet dance)

the bottom is falling out of the corn market. IF the govt would stay out of the farm business we would have a stable market based on supply and demand and not artificial prices..

Here is a pretty good story explaining the volatility of gas prices. Always comes back to supply and demand.

11/10/13..... NW WI..... E10= $3.19-9......

Very pleased with this.... For here at least....

However..... The trend seems to be this area is a consistent as much as 40 cents higher than many other parts of the country..... I'm sure there are many areas that are consistently higher than here, but still wouldn't mind saving a few more $$.......

KnowwhatImean....
Good luck....
