    I was making $4.17 an hour in 1969. The problems were tho, keeping your body from physically collapsing or getting out-right killed.

    Anyhow, gas here in W.Washington is $2.46 per gallon. Idaho has it for $2.18. Yeah, wish the gas war in that Washington town was still going, selling gas for $1.26.

    • Still, 100% gasoline(no ethanol) provides 8% to 5% better MPG, smoother & quieter engines, & a trace extra low RPM torque, so auto trannies don’t have to downshift as often, going up hills or changing cruising speeds. Tho gov’t regulations cause drivers to pick cheaper 10% ethanol gasoline, your engine prefers 100% ethanol-free gasoline.

    Here here in Oregon where I live you can buy at some gas stations non ethanol premium gasoline for another $1.00 - $1.25 per gallon more, not exactly
    a bargain. So for a 15 gallon tank of gas that would be and extra $15.00-$18.75 more. For that extra price you can get an additional 5.77 - 7.21 gallons extra based on 87 octane w/ 10% Ethanol added @ $2.599/ gallon.

    Like I said, payers chose 10% ethanol blend to use(burn inefficiently) thru their engines. But, your engine is telling you that it prefers to efficiently burn 100% ethanol-free gasoline.

    We've caught up with, or passed, Kentucky's fuel prices, though, as you can see by Ford Man's post. I noticed when I was in western Kentucky last month.

    Oh , great. It's a shorter trip for me to go to Kentucky. Maybe 350 miles to Paducah.

    The MINI recommends premium-grade fuel. I use a Chevron that is conveniently near my house.

    Last fill-up (8/24) ran me $4.959/gallon. I think that's after the 20 cent discount from my grocery chain rewards, even. Not sure how much less regular is than premium.

    87 octane E/10 was $2.699 on 9/16/21 at Murphy's in Russellville, KY. If I remember correctly there's about a $ .30 premium added to each higher octane grade.

    $3.399 on Sat Sep 18 in Naperville IL. For 87 E10 , of course.
    You don't even wanna know what the higher octanes sell for.

    Prices rounded to the nearest cent.
    Idaho’s lowest gas prices, specially in southern Idaho, were ALWAYS lower than Washington states’ lowest gas prices, say by 15-25 cents. Presently tho, Washington states’ lowest gas price (Wapato, southeast of Yakima) is $3.10 per gallon, while Idaho’s lowest is $3.18 in Lewiston. Of course, our western Washington lowest prices are $3.30 per gallon(Bellingham Costco). Our lowest Snohomish county price is Smokey Point Costco at $3.50.
