    Makes you wonder if it costs $.70 to pump regular, why does it cost $.80 to pump plus, and then only $.70 to pump premium? Is there more labor involved in the pumping of plus than the other two?

    I noticed that too. Maybe they didn’t have a “7”. ????
    I think last time I went past that station the cost to pump each grade was different.

    You do know that we in California hate you, right? ;)

    Actually, I tell people that all of the refineries are in California, so our gas is fresher. By the time it gets to Virginia, it's pretty stale, so that's why it's so cheap out there. We pay a premium for fresh gas. That's what I tell people, anyway. :rolleyes:

    I only Buy Fresh California Gas, Because there is no better feeling than to know you are getting ripped off.
    We have Seasonal Gas too, They change the formula Especially for us, Twice a year. Winter Formula and Summer Formula.
    The Summer Formula is always more expensive because that's when everybody wants to use their Cars, Boats and power toys on vacation.
    Yep, I only Buy Fresh Californy Gas.. Jealous, Eh?
