4.98 here in Wisco. $97 to fill up the van. Woof. Gotta pull myself up by my bootstraps a bit harder.

I'm seeing small declines over the past week. Like 10¢ drops at one station, then another.

On Tuesday, I filled up at $4.23 with regular. Today the price is $4.17. I like this trend.

(Darn! I can’t find a way to do superscripts on my iPad…)

Originally, I Googled “9 superscript”, clicked a result, and then selected and copied it. Since then, I’ve copied it from the thread.

I like this solution but intuitively thought ^2 should do it without creating a shortcut.

The “Walmart Neighborhood Market” a couple of blocks from my house is selling regular for $4.05⁹ today, and my regular source, an H-E-B grocery about 3 miles away is selling for $4.11⁹. I’m kinda ambivalent about Walmart gas, so I’ll spend a few cents more and buy from a retailer whose products I have plenty of positive experience with.

Gas Buddy says the local price ranges from $4.03⁹ to $4.69⁹, and they have “this part of town” pretty well defined, too.

H-E-B, my local grocery chain, has regular for $3.38⁹. Good thing too, since this week and next we’ve had to do a lot of driving.

Planning to fill up for $3.12 today, we're dangerously close to getting under $3/gallon.

Regular is $3.31⁹ at my favorite grocery/gas station. Gas Buddy says it’s as low as $3.24⁹ in the local area, but that’s at a non-chain convenience store. I’ll stick with a known-good store and their gas.

Still in the mid- to upper-$5 range here. It's clearly been in slow decline, but has yet to approach $5.

$3.67 last night out on the interstate, and in every town around us. At home, though, it’s still something like $4.14, which is making a lot of people scratch their heads and ask “why?” I suppose the answer is “Because they can”, but it’s really weird how our little area (which is definitely not off the beaten path) seems to be the last place to lower prices.

JK I found E85 for 2.34 so I did that. Only managed 10.6mpg towing the car, but still less $$/mile.
