The cheapest I have found around here right now is $1.94 for 87 octane. My truck is pretty old so I've been getting higher octane since it pings a little with the 87. I have a flex-fuel truck and it was doing well with E85. Then the price of that started shooting up. It's actually more expensive now than 87 here. Used to be a lot cheaper than 87 and that's when I was using it. It burns faster than regular gas though so if the price is even close to regular gas then it just isn't cost effective to use. Plus, my truck has a harder time starting on E85 in cold weather so I've only used it during warm spells in the winter.

It varies here. As far as I know (being the gas price watcher and enthusiast I am  :biggrin: ), gas prices are between $1.70 and $1.99.  :noexpression:

Speaking of gas prices, I made an awesome video Monday night! With permission, I took the audio from one of Localonthe8s' videos. It was from a local forecast played 3/1 at 7:58 PM. The music hasn't played since, but it really fits this video well! These pictures I actually went out on my bike intentionally to get. There have always been many instances where I am in the right place at the right time.  :dance: The BP towards the end is a prime example of this. I went back 2 minutes after I took those pictures, and the sign was turned off to avoid total embarassment and a possible lawsuit with the state of Michigan.
