    I get amazing gas mileage coming home from Colorado!

    Don't worry, nobody's trying to make you do anything you don't want to!

    Facts.
    Most of the people, and lawns, are in the wet part (by count, not area).

    Today I learned 85 is a thing. Never seen it. Gas prices are ridiculously low right now. How much is 85 going for now?

    $2.19 most places and $1.75 at Costco. How about everywhere else where 87 is standard. About the same cost as 85 here?

    Saw $1.89/gal a couple days ago. Yeah I also wonder about 87 elsewhere, if it's the same price as our 85.

    $1.69 cheapest I saw here today (SC). $1.73-1.89 everywhere. All gas stations have 87, 89, 93, and e85 at the pump, with a few having 91 and even 110.

    Just paid 2.45 for 93 filling up the GTI. I think the 87 was under 2 dollars.

    Sounds like the price of 87 around here...well not quite that high, but probably mid-$2s. But again...midgrade here.

    Paid $1.95 for 87 about an hour ago. Its insane. It was lower then that a week ago.
    Filled up for just over $20. Did a double take... I thought it stopped pumping early. Nope. 10 gallons...

    It went up here like .14-.24 earlier this week in a matter of hours. We were creeping down with hopes of $1.50 soon, but nope, not gonna happen...

    A $2 gas price ceiling would be nice...
