In Bay Area you are lucky to get 91 for $2.35
Friday made trip from Bay Area to San Juan island WA on my K1200RS. Cheapest gas price paid for Premium was in Oregon $2.23 gallon.

Wow, big deal....

You guys are so lucky, the last time we were paying prices like that over here in Blighty was back in the Seventies...

A Gallon is now over £4, which'll be about $7...

SO STOP BLOODY WHINGEING!

That's that BS!! $3 or $7.....completely rediculous, I should know because I work in the gas industry.

You ever notice how it goes up on Thursday so that on Friday whenyoue tank is empty or your traveling on the weekend you have to pay more?????

Did you know that when the price of crude "goes up" as the news reports that the price only goes up NO MORE than about $0.05 at the tank terminal where the distributors load it into their semi trucks.....but you and I see a $0.20 hike..... :shock: :banghead:

Talk about an industry gone awry. They can raise and lower their prices at will and the system is so complex, virtually no one understands it and can challenge it.
