Gas prices

Postby Howisthisworking » Tue May 23, 2017 7:04 pm

Here we are 5 days before Memorial Day and already the gas prices jumped 5 cents. Prices never used to be more than 10 cents difference from here to Plover and Madison. So why is Tomahawk alway 20 cents higher now? Maybe when the new Kwik Trip opens it may show others some integrity and keep prices level with other areas. Last year they were 40 cents higher than 50 miles away. Seems like price gouging to me.

Today prices were $2.37 in Woodruff, same with station on 51 near Hwy L, who can explain the high prices in Tomahawk? Last 30 years prices were always higher further North of tomahawk, did they open a new refinery further North of Lincoln county? Didn't think so. Why are prices at $2.44 per gallon?

It`s around $2.27 in Milwaukee.

Some are a little higher, some are a little lower.

Unfortunately, it`s Reformulated Ethanol Gas.

I`d pay more for real gas. :wink:

I don`t even want to use that gas in my motorcycle, lawnmower, or any small engine! :shock:

I have often questioned the pricing of gas in the area. Seems a little strange that all the producers prices go up at the same time. :roll:
I have heard rumors that when one dealer gets a raise in price that phone calls are made to the others so they can follow suite and thus avoid any type of price war and keep thing at an even state for all of them.

I also don't like running that corn gas in my small engines. I was advised by a dealer that even though it costs a little more that I should run premium gas in them. They start easier and it is better for the engine.
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

I wonder if we could lower the gas prices if only 2 grades of gas would be sold? :?:

Just lower octane and the higher octane. :wink:

Do we really need 3 grades of gas? :(
