3.99 for clear in town, cheaper if you go towards civilization, or Down Below...  Think dyed was 3.48 or some such, I don't pay much attention, it all needs to be payed for somehow, no sense in worrying about it.
well that didn't work

$3.41 red fuel, $3.73 clear last night when I got my fuel for the week.  That has gone up since a week ago when it was $3.37 / $3.67.  Go 10 miles up the road and on road is $3.89.  My fuel cost averages 10% of my gross income.

$3.999 off road and 4.299 taxed, locally. I think we get raped here. It's all super low sulfur and I think its a summer blend, the dang stuff gels at 20 degrees so I have to run an additive.
