Back in July I drove from Vegas to Eastern Iowa 3600 miles round trip. At that time every station I stopped at was also $1.00 higher for Premium. I paid it anyways, I've never put 87 in my car, now @ 20k miles.

Vegas Gas is still over $4.50+ for Premium. Thanks President

No one has an issue with $5 per gal. for milk?

😁
Milk cost me $5.99 a half gallon. Sure its in a glass bottle, organic and gets delivered to my door, but still that is expensive. Honestly, never thought about it. Shyte...I am paying ADM on milk. Mods! Cobra Jet just complained about ADM on my milk.

From what I understand, stations sell their gas based in large part on the price they paid for it. So if they get a new batch of gas at a lower price before they've sold their previous haul, they're still going to sell out their pre-existing supply at the higher price. And each octane level is separate, so frequently the premium gas is significantly more expensive than regular when prices drop because that's usually the last thing to sell-out and switch to the new, lower priced supply.

I probably used some questionable terminology there, but hopefully you get the idea.

$2.92 for Premium here at Costco in central Texas. Regular is $2.42. I'll continue to use premium even if it was a dollar higher but thankfully our prices have always been below the national average by quite a bit.

Hey I buy premium fresh milk straight from a local dairy, delivered by a milk man so yeah, $5 bucks for that is ok. If premium gas in AZ was ACTUALLY premium, I might be ok with it!

Weird, cheapest around here is $3.89 for 93 and regular is $2.99-$3.15. Rare is the days of 50 cents over for 93

The spread here in Texas is usually about 70¢. Regular is down to $2.55 a gallon down here. Most of the time I go to QT (which is top tier branded fuel) as they only charge 50¢ more for premium.
Download the shell fuel rewards app. I’ve gotten up to 70¢ of per gallon just by stacking rewards. You’ll get additional rewards discount if you have T-Mobile and link accounts with T-Mobile Tuesday’s.
