Woo hoo got a good deal on Premium today
« on: October 12, 2008, 10:24:10 PM »
Stopped to get gas this morning at a Conoco nearby, I paid $3.37/gal for 91. It was $3.25 for 85, $3.35 for 87 and $3.37 for premium.

A few hours later we returned to fill up the Passat and they corrected their pricing mistake...so we left and sough another place.

I felt pretty good about paying under $60 to fill up my car. It has been a long time.

Yeah, the price of gas has really dropped lately. :)  I paid $3.37 a gallon for premium at Costco on Thursday as well.  Regular was $3.17.

I guess that goes along with the problems in the economy.

yup, the mini uses regular.  They suggested premium, as they do, but since there is not forced induction, and the system is pretty simple, I have used nothing but regular since 2003, not one issue :).  The subaru and tacoma also use regular, so that is nice.  I am getting about 27mpg  on the subaru these days, the automatic sucks gas.  Wish it was a 5 speed.

Western Convenience here in Parker is down to $2.99 a gallon for regular, and $3.20 for premium.  Parker seems to have pretty good prices on gas locally.
