I saw a post on flop book talking about gas,octain and prices. Some people were saying that premium was $1.00 a gallon more in some places. Here it's not much more.

I took this pic 45 min ago.

In Central Indiana, it's like 60 cents at the cheap stations, 70 cents at Phillips, 80 cents at shell.

But our premium is 93, in California it's probably 91.

In Ohio, it's $0.60 more for premium (and $0.30 for mid-grade). I remember when it was a $0.10 increment and no, this was decades ago. This big jump seemed to have occured in the past ~10 years or less, if I'm not mistaken.

Here's one example:

Regular is $1.30/gal cheaper at Costco in Michigan. California pricing is awful.

Yeah, CA just has super high gas prices. The cheap place near me is $2.31 for regular and $2.67 for super and that's 93. Gas buddy reports the cheapest in my area is $2.15 for regular and $2.49 for super, but it's a bit too far to make it worthwhile for me.

60 cents at Speedway and 80 cents at shell, although our premium is still cheaper than your regular.

Kansas City area price difference is between 40 and 50 cents/gal. QuikTrip, one of the two largest retailers in the metro is at 50 cents. Some select stations are lower than 40, but they can be hard to find.

A local station in Alamogordo NM had Regular at $2.06 and Premium at $3.42

That makes no sense at all!

NE Ohio. its commonly 60cents
sams club is usually 50cents

some stations can be $.70+ even over a dollar


I read somewhere that 93 octane "premium" costs around 10cents more than 87 to produce.
many stations now only have signs for regular gas and "easy pay" "quick pay" "advantage pay"
so you cant find the 92/93 octane price until you look at the pump.

today
So one station is 2.29 premium is 2.89 (26%)
another station is 2.18 premium 3.06 (40%)
by percentage that is a whopping price "premium" for premium gas.

CA is well known to have some of the highest gas prices in the nation. It basically requires boutique fuels for different areas so there's a limited supply and you can't just import the fuel from different areas of the country because it doesn't meet local EPA requirements.
