Nobody's driving so the gas stations aren't getting refills at lower prices. Prices have dropped maybe 15 cents in the last two weeks and may be closing in on record low prices of the last 10 years of $2.25/gallon.

The NYS DMV is closed so my driver's license will expire next month. Someone has to reprogram the cops about driving with expired licenses. The Governor says licenses will be extended.

Where I live, it's $3.75.

I thought it would be interesting to look at prices with all this stuff going on over in the Middle East.

I heard a gas station owner say in an interview, no, they're not paying a higher price for gas YET, but they anticipate a higher price and need to have the cash-on-hand right away to pay for it, so they raise the prices right away. I don't know if I buy that or not, but I have heard of other businesses doing that, especially financial services (in anticipation of inflation, etc.).



Here it's $0.71 per liter, so $2.68 per gallon. Gasoline doesn't serve their purpose during this pandemic. What I mean is that no people will go outside and do non-sense stuffs. Gasoline will expire as time goes by.

Once this is done, expect the increase, but the world hasn't reached its peak yet.

In Central CT (I-84 or I-91 jct I-691) the lowest prices in the state are found at $1.49 Regular as of this post.
For those interested, Diesel is cheapest in SW-CT (Fairfield Co.) at about $2.40 cash.

$2.29 I think by me. I haven't been to a gas station since mid March. I was told that it is $0.97.9 at the cheapest station on the nearby Indian Reservation. Probably $1.40 of my $2.29 is NYState taxes.

Someone here made a great joke earlier... I'll parrot it.... I'm getting two weeks to the gallon....

Most stations in my city are at $4.999/gallon. Saw one sign where regular was $5.099 and premium was $6.599, and if the price ever comes back down it will be stuck there for months.
Saw an old sign from the 1970's where the 3 grades of gas were 10 cents apart at $0.799, $0.899, and $0.999. I guess we could expect that only a dollar apart at $7.999, $8.999, and $9.999 soon enough. Lately it's been 10 cents to 40 cents apart between the grades. I haven't seen this kind of gas inflation since the 1973 oil embargo.

I'd get the middle one with the middle suspension, or get the 4th scooter that needs a license and has a padded seat and bigger battery. But I've got no place to store or recharge them like a handy garage. They're 70 pounds or more so I can't carry them up & down stairs. If the battery is gonna die out in 10 miles, what's the point anyway? I had a gas mini-bike at one time that would go 25 mph, but they weren't street legal.

Note 1: According to the news, it will possibly go to ~$8.30+ soon.
Note 2: The above amounts are in AUD, and is a rough conversion from litres to US gallons (so ~AUD/gallon)

I think SUV's and bigger vehicles use premium without ethanol, but I have no first hand knowledge.
I started getting gas at BJ's and my car started stalling out at red lights, so I went back to my usual gas station and the stalling stopped. Cheaper gas, off the rails performance.

The choice of "Premium" in Australia is 95- or 98-octane, and I always try to get the 98. So, ~7.60 AUD/gallon, atm (a figure mentioned in my previous post).

The economy car I use to run errands runs great on "regular gas" (the least expensive E10 or lower hose).
I know today's fillup was under $55 (not by much), and under 12 gallons (not by much). I think $4.619, but I can't be bothered to go grab the receipt and look. Probably an 87 E10 blend.

The sticker on the local pumps suggests 91 octane E0 for small engines, and the manual for the lawnmower concurs. Seems to run fine on 87 E10.

The E85 flexfuel blends would work in the runabout (not the lawnmower!), but the consensus I've heard is fewer miles per tank due to the lower energy density. I can't trust the rest of the family not to screw up my science, so I'm not going to try to evaluate the relative miles per dollar.

The small engines I always use the 91. Filled the 5 gallon can up 4/5ths of the way today....$46 it was $2.41 Can a litre.

Reason being that ethenol gums up the carburetors. My commercial 21 inch Toro mower is on its 15 season and never pulled the carb off to clean it.. Kawasaki engine starts first or second pull. Ditto the 2004 backpack blower and weed Wacker.

Can't tell you how many snowblowers I've pulled carbs off to clean them up or just replace as $20 gets a new plastic one for the Toro ones most have here. Again easier starts in 10*F weather with the 91 in them.

I do try to fill the tiny carburetors with E0 and treated with fuel stabiliser when parking for the end of the season.
In season, I figure the fuel gets burned fast enough not to turn into varnish in those miniscule orifices.

I don't like cleaning carburetors, but the few squirts of solvent every now and again plus the 12 minutes of taking it off and putting it back together is probably therapeutic. ;)

The fact that you need a snowblower tells me that it is time for you to move. I grew up with snow but swore to never again live where it normally snows. I just moved to Florida from Las Vegas and am enjoying it so far. Of course, I rarely leave the house so humidity isn't a big problem for me.

My car might not pass inspection due to rust issues. I've begun a headlong rush into learning about what car to buy. I'm gonna start with the Hybrid selection because they'll get 35-50 mpg or more. I wanted to get a plug-in car, but I've got nowhere to plug-in except at the super charger station somewhere.

Well I am actually about 4 miles due south of Detroit .... The Canadian banana belt . Winters here are fine much better than the 7 out in Edmonton Alberta were.

My buddy got up at 7 am Jan1 2000 started up his lawn mower and cut his lawn. It's not official but we believe he was the first to cut their lawn not only in Canada but North America. The neighbors had the confirmation they were looking for , that he is nuts.
