I know this isn't electrical, but 87 octane just went up 10 cents to $3.79 where I am in northern Minnesota today, who out there has the highest price?

We were briefly at $4.05 for regular here by Milwaukee. Haven't paid attention to it in a couple days. It's kind of all over the map.

The have a site here that is supposedly constantly updated, but I live outside of most of those areas. Oh, and I have to run Premium because of my turbo.

I'm paying $3.35 cash, but it's averaging $3.52 for 87 and I think I saw diesel at $4.59.

I'm tuning up my bike and will be riding 11 miles to work 1-way in 104* heat. Drop that winter weight real quick!

saw diesel at 4.75 a couple days ago but most stations were around 4.65.

87 octane was 3.99. then dropped to around 3.83 and now creeping back up at 3.87 or so.

all near University of Notre Dame.

I'm looking across the street at $4.38 and 9/10 for regular 87 octane!


You can save a bunch by paying cash, though............it's ONLY $4.29 and 9/10 cash price.

$4.05 for gas, $4.85 for diesel in Chicagoland. I love it here, the only place where you can spend a third or more of your trip sitting stopped in traffic, and the rest of it averaging speeds of 12mph on the highway. And that is after driving 20 miles at 65mph.

The $11.00 sounds very possible in Turkey. A year ago a friend said he was paying $7.50 a U.S. gallon

Turkey has a lot of oil going through the country but does not offer low prices (similar to the rest of Europe). - Iran even imports gasoline.
