    Fuel prices

    Sunoco regular at one station in Venice, FL - 1.89. Race Trac 1.99, Mobil 1.99. Lowest I can remember in years. What's it in your area?

    $1.59 for regular at Sam’s outside St Louis, MO. Unfortunately I have full tanks in both cars and ‘stay at home’ is in place.

    Have not been out in days.

    Prices were lower when I last got gas but corn free was still high.

    Re: Fuel prices

    Last I actually saw they were still a little over $2.00, but that was a couple days ago. According to gas buddy they have dropped under $2.00 a gallon at a lot of places.

    Not a good time for a lot of things, but a good time to be driving, moreso for the less traffic, but also low gas prices.

    Filled up both cars Thursday and E10 was $1.21. Unfortunately I don't use the stuff and had to pay $1.89 for the real stuff.

    So, what you're saying is that if I burn premium, I'll get better mileage?

    Re: Fuel prices

    I filled up for $1.46 yesterday. Right now I think the low prices have less to do with the economy and more to do with Putin flooding the market.
