    I kinda twigged to that, just reading the notices on the pumps, at a (Canadian) Shell station:

    Regular: 10% ethanol
    Mid-Grade: 5% ethanol
    Premium: ethanol free

    (I appreciate in the States all grades have around 10% ethanol.)

    Ah, as reported above, Costco customers get 4%(not 3%) back on gasoline purchases. Now Burlington Costco is $2.26 a gallon...... BELOW everyone else. Ka-CCCChhhhhiiiiiggggg! Ka-CCChhhhiiiiggggg!
    Best price in the state. With that lead, the Burlington Gas War will become the gas war & will probably end soon?.........

    P.S: Oh, oh. Some gas station 300 miles away in low-ball Spokane, just went to $2.24.

    It's funny, when we go to Costco, the gas bar is always stacked up like there's a gas shortage or something. I've never bothered to join the herd; pull into (near deserted) Chevron if we're running low. Costs us and extra 4~5 cents a liter, but when you're filling up once a month...

    I filled up last night for $3.39:(.

    Just thankful I’m far enough away from San Francisco where it’s still around $4 a gallon:eek:.

    But 65 F and sunny yesterday with more of the same on tap for the foreseeable future (y).

    Now ya know how bad gas prices have been in Wa state since Alaska ain't sendin' too much fuel now. Said Burlington Costco is $2.26 per, while Seattle low is ~ $2.65. Highly advertised gasoline is even higher (duh).

    Any residual heat from the forest fires? Washington state warm January 2019, due to AGW.
