slight drop at the local Crown station. I just filled up my '85 Silverado during lunch, and 93 was down to $4.099/gal. Last time I put 87 in was 4/18/12, and it had been $4.299. I also filled up on 5/1/12, but put 87 in that time, for $3.899/gal.
I used to put premium in the truck, because it's getting old and carboned up, and the valves would clatter if I ran 87 in it. But, I found that as long as I don't let the tank get too empty, I can alternate between 87 and 93, with the mixture ending up being around 89-90, and it seems to run fine.
I guess I could just put 89 in it, but that's priced closer to 93 than 87, so doing it this way saves a little money. Or, at least tricks me into thinking I do.

Today, filled up the old Explorer with RUG for 3.999 credit(cash price 3.919).
Last fill up was 4.079 on on 4/29.
Yesterday, filled up the new Explorer with RUG for 3.999(cash or credit).
Previous fill up was 4.039 on 2/27.
I think the high for the year was around 4.299.

to Newt Gingrich and President Obama for asserting themselves about oil speculators. Prices have fallen ~8%~ in the past few weeks around here in W. Ga. I'm glad we have had 2 Hybrids in the garage during the first four months of 2012.

Heh, don't think the fact that crude supplies rose to a 22-year high may be a factor too?
I don't know how much gas is here - the electronic sign at my usual station is burned out. Price must have fallen so fast it blew a fuse.

Took a little road trip to SW WA this morning, into the less developed world...average price is just over $4 for regular.
Not bad mileage earlier today:
#9775 of 10170 Our prices are still high

$4.03 is the cheapest RUG I have seen. Most stations around me are still at $4.29
May 12, 2012 (7:01 pm)
And I was surprised. Last I looked (10? days ago?), gas was $3.99.
Today it was $3.81, an eighteen cent drop.

We're sitting at $3.69 in most places, although there is a rogue Sunoco sitting at $3.93 for some odd reason. Even odder, you see people at the pumps there. Sort of makes you wonder what ELSE is going on there
