Today at Costco the price was $3.97. On this date last year the price at Costco was $4.25.

Yes, they ferment right there, similar to most, if not all, the makers. Just making fun, as it seems ANY type of excuse is used to raise prices. Making alcohol is a pretty cool process, dangerous, but really cool.
But, I'm off-topic, back to topic at hand. Was in the city on Friday evening and the prices were in the $3.90 ~ $4.05 range for 87 octane. A couple of the $3.95 stations by me went back to $3.80. No apparent reason.
Hard to read the typical "spring-break" rise this year, maybe last week was it.

You're running the same as our local Costco. Not sure what the SAM's Club was running - they're usually 5 ~ 10 cents cheaper. I have a $10 gas card from them, may use it in the summer for the mower.
I'm a cash person so don't fill-up there + my normal places are either the same price or slightly lower.

Paid $3.99 for Chevron diesel today (first time I've fueled up the car since I got it a month ago today - was down around 1/4, which is as low as I like to go). Premium was $3.92. So that's about 2% more, not bad.

The Subaru is getting down to a quarter of a tank. Rather than buy gas, I've driven the van a couple of times this week. Just checked my gas log and I last put gas in it back on November 13. Seems eager to run.
Gas is unchanged around here; $3.88 locally, $3.68 down the road.

Just filled the Lexus at Costco. Price was $4.17 for premium. Last filled October last year and the price was $4.19. Mileage on that tank was 17.49 MPG. About normal.

Heh, I'm only down maybe 1/2 a tank in the minivan so I may be able to beat you. But we're tripping in mid April so maybe not.

You and Steve need to add Stabil to your tanks when you fill up those cars. October to March: 5 months!!!

We still have a range of prices, but lowest around is $3.59
