I paid $3.71 per gallon OF PREMIUM here in FL the other day. Hess station here is $3.45 for regular. This is with US and FL taxes. Why is premium still over $4.25 at home?

So cheap again ... We were well over $4, then right around the time the extension agreement between the gov't and HOVENSA was announced, the rack rate started coming down and things started returning to orbit. A temporary conditon, to be sure.

Lol...you ain't seen nothing yet! Just wait until gas is $6.50 or $7 a gallon in the VI in the new year.

But wait....isnt that about what everyone else in Canada and Europe is paying?

Yes, it is. But they're getting health care out of it.

According to published reports on the weekly rack rate, prices on regular should be down this week while premium prices will be up. Average premium on STT this past week has apparently been $5.01 (Ronnie, where did you pay $4.54 for premium as that's lower than regular for which as noted earlier I paid $4.88 just two days ago?) Every little helps so I'll be keeping my eyes peeled on my daily run and if it drops down I'll top up the tank on my guzzler.

Anybody on STT interested in making a deal on a well maintained '98 Explorer in exchange for a simple compact? I don't need the space any more!
