    We're lucky here. Finding ethanol free regular is fairly easy. At least 50% of stations have it and it generally runs 10-15 cents more per gallon. Ethanol free premium is all I've seen in the past few years. Not sure if anybody has "up to 10% ethanol" premium anymore. Race gas,,,,,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,,,,,,there's the problem. I think you can buy it out at the race track during the season. When the Petro Mart had it, it was $7.49/gal seemingly forever. What I mean is, it was that 10 years ago and the same last fall when I bought some. I should check because I don't remember seeing an "out of order" thing on the race fuel pump. Maybe they still have some in the tank. Next question is if it's any good yet after being in there so long. Oh well........I'll find it somewhere. My car likes a gallon of 110 mixed with a tank of premium 91, especially in hot weather. Plus, I like to add a little bit to my lawn mower/snowblower gas can,,,,just for the aroma when it burns

    I would gladly pay 10-15 cents more for ethanol free. What makes it crazy is this area we have boats everywhere and you would think that gas would more readily available. Sure some local marinas have it at $4.49 a gallon. Yikes!

    Today it's back up to $2.74/gal. They're all going to wear their keyboards out typing a new price in every other day, or if they don't have an electronic sign, the numbers they stick on the sign are going to be shot, lol

    We have been warned to expect our prices to go up to above $1.65 a liter by Easter. Carbon tax just went up another penny a liter today, transit levy is going up another 1.5 cents a liter this spring as well. We pay the highest fuel taxes and overall costs in North America here in the greater Vancouver area. Lucky us. Guess that means we are winning.

    Carbon tax,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what a crock. To combat the non-existent "climate change" I guess, but I digress. It actually stayed the same price for 2 days in a row so far at $2.74. Can we go for three?

    Wish gas prices would go down but at least they've been constant for the past couple months or more. Filled the Mustang up yesterday with 87 at $2.79/gal. Filled the Aspen up this morning with 91 octane and, same as almost 2 months ago when I last filled up, $3.45/gal.

    That's one huge advantage to being energy independent, we don't have to rely on oil from the Middle East anymore so all the crap that goes on there, all the time, for at least the last 2,000 years,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,doesn't necessarily make our gas price go up.

    Nice unexpected surprise this morning. Stopped to fill up the 'Stang and saw regular went from $2.79 yesterday, down to $2.59 this morning. I've never seen gas prices drop 20 cents overnight before. Up yes, down no. Premium went from $3.45 down to $3.29/gal. Be afraid, be very afraid, lol.
