>Last filled October last year and the price was $4.19.
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

Paid 4.10 or something for Chevron premium today, diesel was 3.99 (!)

$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.

$3.259 for RUG
I believe PUG was $3.59

topped off the Ram yesterday with mid-grade, for $3.839/gal. One thing that's been really nice lately, is that it seems mid-grade is closer in price to 87 octane than 93. In the past, it always seemed so close in price to 93 that you really weren't saving much by going with mid-grade.
I think 87 octane was $3.739, while 93 was $4.039.
As for fuel economy, it's been a little oink-oink...14 mpg average over the 2140 miles it's been driven so far. But, for mostly local, short-trip driving, I guess that's not *too* bad. Especially considering how big and heavy it is. I've gotten as bad as 12.6 mpg on a tank, and as good as 20. For comparison, my Park Ave has done as bad as 14.5 mpg, and as good as 29.8.
I know those low numbers sound pretty horrible, but with my short-trip driving, I'm sure I'd kill the economy on just about any car.
