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

$3.83 in town for regular.
Diesel was $4.04 the other day.

NPR just said (quoting gasbuddy.com), that the national average for regular is now $3.53.
It's $3.74 here in town. Going to Chicago tomorrow but I have a half tank, so I'm going to get a bit closer to Wisconsin before buying any and try to find some closer to the national average.
Didn't see a diesel or premium price.

In the Bucktown area:
RUG - $4.19
Midgrade - $4.39
Premium - $4.69
Diesel - $4.55
Train/bus fare is $2.25 so no great bargain there either. Free parking in the neighborhoods at least, assuming you can find a spot.
