Per reverendrob's request as the old thread was getting too big.

Got gas on Wednesday at Costco which had climbed up another penny to $2.95. Idaho beats the national average on the high side! Most of our local stations are above $3 now. Go Idaho...

$3.95 a gallon for regular at the Chevron station near me. I buy my lotto tickets there and have a running joke that I need to win the jackpot to be able to afford to pay for a full up.

Locally (Minnesota) at $2.80 (rounded up that tenth of a cent!). Crazy!

What's going on these days? We don't buy oil/gas from Iran, so I don't see what's driving prices so high... maybe the fact that farmers are finally getting into the fields? But that can't be that much fuel volume...

"We don't buy oil/gas from Iran,"

It still matters because others do. It affects the whole supply. All the various crude prices generally move together on global news.

A person I know in the industry put it like this, the various supply countries can be thought of as being one big swimming pool. Consuming nations draw out like with a siphon hose whatever their demand is, and that affects the level of the whole pool.

Jumped here in Tampa from $2.68 to $2.76 since the news about Iran.

Our prices in North Idaho are in the $2.70's range but Southern Idaho is another story. Never been totally clear why.

One of the best benefits of using a Costco Visa card is you get 4% back on gas at most places. So instead of, say, $3 a gallon, you actually pay $2.88.

Around $2.50 at Costco on Maui and $3 ish at regular stations. Still less than where I live. Hope that's a better answer Chris.

$2.44/gal @ Costco yesterday on the Costco Visa which will net another 4% cash back.

I fill up at the Union 76 down the street because it's close. No idea what the price per gallon is.

My only complaint: those gibberish spouting TV screens on the pumps.
Do other stations have these as well?

Not in any part of Idaho I've been in, Gato.
