I stopped at my local marathon station to fill my car and noticed something a little striking and unusual. regular 87 E10 is 2.49 per gallon and 90 E0 ethanol free is 2.22.
Never thought i would see the day when ethanol free was cheaper than blended gasoline but it was a nice change.

I've noticed that a few times on road trips, I want to say it was in Iowa or Nebraska.

I worked at a gas station for a bit while in high school. Many gas stations price match with each other. My boss would record every other gas station's prices each morning and we would go one cent lower, as per company policy. While that was 10+ years ago now, I'm sure that they still follow this trend. While their stock is probably fresh, another gas station nearby might be trying to move some older, ethanol-free gas and lowered their price- causing those who price match to lower theirs as well.

Y'all aren't very observant if you missed this

E0 should be cheaper.....you have to put the ethacrud in the "unleaded gasoline". Just like back in 75' when they started "unleaded gasoline".....they didn't take the lead out......they didn't put it in to begin with.

I wish I had such a choice.

I now have 9 months of fuel mileage tallies. I'd LOVE to see what E0 would yield.

I'd pay more for it.
