$1.47 - $1.65 locally.
Most places in town went up to $1.99 today.
After posting, I filled up in Dearborn for $1.55/gallon. The former Circle K stations on Michigan & Gulley are now under different ownership, and their prices were a bit higher. I drove a mile further east to fill up. A few other stations that were below $1.60 rose above $1.70.
Circle K. I wouldn't put that in a weed wacker!!
Gassed up, $1.79 a gallon, quality BP.
They didn’t jack it for Memorial Day.
Name-brand (Shell) gas in my area has been about the same now for about the past 2 weeks, $1.599.
Hit 99.9 cents a liter .. In Northern Canada.. 11 more cents and were back to where we started before C-19.
All stations are now at $1.65.
Local Murphy is the cheapest here. $1.829. $2.00 is on the way.
Haven't needed to fill up this week, but in Detroit's western suburbs, I've seen $1.999/gallon for regular, and several other stations are above $1.90. It's below $1.80 at some locations, and according to gasbuddy, the lowest price locally is $1.559 on Middlebelt Road near the airport. Gasbuddy also reports that Detroit-area prices are stable, and they might have peaked during the Memorial Day weekend.
Me, neither: mine is electric.
I don't think Circle K has its own gas brand; from what I've seen, it contracts with major brands, and said brand, like Shell, Conoco, etc., also has a sign right under the Circle K sign on the property, similar to 7-11 stores. Also, I've read that most gas comes from a local or regional refinery, and the only differences are the additives that each brand adds before the individual tanker trucks are filled.
Just around the corner, as states re-open....
I'd rather see 3 bucks a gallon and have my 401K back, intact!!
Additives make a HUGE difference in gas quality, whenever they get mixed in the process!!
Name-brand (Shell) up another $0.10 since last weekend, now to $1.699, bargain gas across the street $1.659.
Gas has settled around $2.25 for the past few weeks. That’s $1 below what it normally is around here.
My mortgage lender just informed me that my property taxes will go up $90/month starting in August. At the same time, Zillow estimates that my property value has fallen $40,000 in the last two months.
The local Discount Tire business is bursting at the seams. On the other hand, my gym still can’t figure out how it is going to reopen when it can only allow 50 members at one time. That seems to be the pattern everywhere: the reopening of the COVID economy represents feast for some, famine for others.
$1.719 in Wayne, Mi when I filled up on Sunday. Didn't leave for Texas until yesterday; filled up in Napoleon, Oh for $1.729 (cheaper than Toledo), Hanson, Ky for $1.659, Horn Lake, Ms for $1.499, Monroe, La for $1.459, and Tyler, Tx for $1.449. Could have filled up for 3c/gallon less than in Wayne in southern Romulus, but the longer drive would have negated any savings. Prices were rising in the Detroit, Toledo and Indy areas; they'd earlier risen in Henderson, Ky but stabilized from $1.719 to $1.769. In Hanson, it was about 15c/gallon higher than a few days earlier, and there, only the WalMart was under $1.70. Further south, prices had also risen, but not nearly as much as in the north.
My monthly automobile fuel cost has doubled. I spent $14 for gas in April and $29 for May. I just don't drive anymore.
Holding steady around $1.89ish in the Detroit area.
About the same here.
Filled up for $1.499 in Round Rock yesterday, which was the lowest in that portion of the Austin area. Just saw gasbuddy reports of $1.429 in Elgin.
Just got back from a trip to Florida. Prices ranged from $1.65 here at home to $1.89 in Tampa. Paid $1.77 in SC. I budgeted for $2/gallon so I came out well ahead.
