Higher Res version as I think it turned out rather nice and you can zoom in to look at the textures in the tree bark and the red leaves on the hedge… ;-)
Well, we’re over $4 / gallon for super at the Car Wash. They are still holding the line at $3.99 / gallon at the non-carwash stations in the area (though not in other areas).
It’s a bit of a “hoot” hearing the folks on TV talk about $3.25 / gallon gas and what might happen “IF” gas reached $4 a gallon…
But, there it is.
The “E-85″ is 85% Ethanol (only station in the area that has it as near as I can tell) while the Biodiesel at B-5 is basically a blending credit gimmick. B-20 starts to be interesting and I like B-99 better. (Folks don’t sell B-100 as you don’t collect the blenders credit… welcome to Government “managed” markets…)
As most of the run up in crude has not yet made it through the refinery delay, I expect prices to keep on climbing for a few weeks. Expect $5 / gallon in “exotic” places (like that lone gas station at the end of the long mountain climb to the remote park… or near expensive and exclusive neighborhoods.)
“Coal to Liquids” can make gasoline for about $2.75 / gallon. Just a thought…
