30 cent jump on premium here over regular.

I've switched back to premium myself. Local prices dropped to $3.499 for E10-93. Makes the $2.999 E85 far less of a value. Needs to be about a $0.80/gal split before the E85 makes financial sense to use. I also grew tired of filling up what felt like every other day. E10-93 gets me almost a week of driving. E-85 only got me about 3 days.

I've noticed that as well and it's kind of annoying. Also probably seventy percent of the places where charge extra for credit, usually about 10 cents. They will literally stick you where ever they can which makes it extra annoying when prices go up.

We just went UP probably 60 or 70 cents a gallon over the past 2 weeks....probably back to the highest prices in the country. Think I just filled up at 4.19 a gallon for 93......I wonder what the excuse will be this time...

In Alberta, premium is normally around 5.00 per U.S. gallon but at least it is ethanol free. This is cheap compared to other parts of Canada where it is well over 6 bucks.

I tried some E0 90 octane a while back and didn't notice any differences between it and E10 93. It did cost $.40 more then the premium, though...
