last friday, i found this:


anyone that buys mid-grade is foolish...it's most likely pulling from the 87 tanks. :P

$4.29 average around me.   Interesting that premium is only 30 cents higher right now everywhere.  Before this started premium was always really pricey.

The bulk of drivers don't use premium.

, Shit, even my old 911 ran on regular.
I think " premium" gas is and has always been pretty much a rip off.
 Back in them there OLDEN days when little IGORWEEZE decide to brave the competition and throw away all his money racing a sedan in SCCA he put this gas they had into the little Datsun sedan he campaigned. Now that was gas! I had a 5 gallon can full at the end of the season so I threw it into my old 911. a 1969 911 that came from the factory with 6 count them SIX carbs on there. Plus I lived in Monterey so the carbs were tuned to 50 feet above sea level, man those carbs were more of a pain then a Gottleib what was it system 80? but that's another story.
 So anyway IGORweeze puts 5 gallons into his 1969 Bahama Brown 911 with those original carbs and the way that 115 octane or whatever it was had that car just about doing wheel stands! Little IGORweeze immediately went to Carmel Valley Road and super enjoyed it.
 Gas with alcohol is one of the dumbest things in existence but it sure is great for business if your in the small engine business.
 sorry, I rattled on sometimes.....

My wife's 2016 Mustang uses Premium, filled it up last night at $4.89/gal.  Sadly, still cheaper than when I have to fill my Ford Expedition at 87 octane.

you're not getting mid-grade. that is garbage for the price they charge. it's always been a bad choice with no value for the % upcharge you pay.

87 or 89 (2% up) for a dollar more :P. grab that 93 (6% up), the percentages always work out. that's it. :)

i WISH gas was $3.55 a gallon! :P

found 30 cents lower than anyone else, this station's price hasn't changed in 2 weeks...they'll figure it out soon enough
(our average is $4.60 around me, i've seen $5.29 in jupiter for 87):

Here we go folks ….

I fill up my Jeep once every 4-6 weeks.

Hopefully by the time I hit empty this will calm down.

I’ll be at home playing arcades and pinballs.

I don’t leave the house until the end of May due to tourist season and spring break.

Happy gaming,
Big Al

Holy shit, it’s nearing the end of May & I had to leave my house and fill up my cars.

Was 3.55
now 4.59

Good thing I sold a pinball that

Was 1,500
Now 5,500

I have a strange feeling that the FL economy is gonna go ! W a c k o ! In the next year or two.

I also do honestly feel bad for all the people and business establishments that are or will be impacted by this. 

Its a good thing I downsized my life @ 5 years ago - the stress was killing me then - so it’s nice to not give a shit anymore.

I’ll be at home chillin’ in the game room.

Happy gaming,
Big Al

When you have double digit inflation and surging gas prices which affects virtually everything, yep.. buckle up kids it's going to get bumpy.

They are predicting $6/gal before the end of the year.

And to think all that free money called "stimulus" that was sent out to keep people from leaving their house and going to work isn't so free now.  It comes from somewhere, and the reach-around is called "inflation".
