    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:
