Currently $4.69.9 for 87 octane at our local Quik Trip (QT) convenience station. It was $4.29.9 a little over 2 weeks ago. Effin’ theives. Pretty bad. Even worse though is wifey’s BMW needs that 93 octane, and, I use the 90 octane ethanol free in all my outdoor power equipment. They are going to break the backs of the American consumer. This, as it stands, is unsustainable.

Well that is nothing. I fueled the Model T yesterday putting in $46.89 of ethanol free fuel priced at $5.919. Lets see that went into a car that sold new for around $300.00 in 1923. 

What I did find interesting was this information;

According to the Energy Information Administration, the price of gasoline in 1920s dollars steadily fell from 30 cents in 1920 per gallon to 21 cents per gallon in 1929. Adjusted for inflation to today's dollar, the price of gas in the 1920s fell from $2.87 per gallon to $2.41, but the fall was much less steady, hitting a high of $2.90 in 1922 and a low of $2.34 in 1927.

So while fuel is way more than I really wish to pay it may not be as bad as we think. Wonder what that $300.00 adjusted for inflation would buy you today? I am pretty sure not a car that would be running 100 years from now at any price.

The third week  it has been over 6. The one no name is 10 or 15 cents less than last week6.29 for 87, 6.49 for 89, 6.69 for 92, and diesel was 6.99.  Velaro has a diesel only island not configured for a big rig, but lots of 350 to 550 truck and a trailers more 6.75 or so and cash gas is 5 to 15 cents of the no name.

Gas is $4.54 at the small town store near me. They ran out, along with another nearby store, last week.

Since gas is more expensive does that mean it's better than a year ago???

I wonder what brought that on?  Thursday I went down to Ballinger, and EVERY station in town, EXCEPT the Phillips 66 station, was at least $4.60.9/ per gallon, and the Phillips 66 was $4.29.

I expected lines out to the highway from backed up customers waiting in line, OR plastic bags placed over the nozzles on the hoses, but all was well, with NO lines and NO bags.
