Costco in Salem Oregon is $4.849 today. I paid $5.749 for premium non-ethanol ("boat gas") yesterday at a VP Racing station. They were selling Diesel for $5.749 as well.
This has been a thing for a long time around here. Has something to do with limiting exposure to some kind of credit card scam.I had a strange event happen this morning at my favorite independent gas retailer. I was filling up my tank ($4.57) and the pump slowed down and then quit at exactly $75.00. I am pretty sure I was at least a gallon shy of a full tank. Is this some weird gas conservation policy of the station? I think it's either that or something amiss with my new Visa card which I had reissued due to fraud.
Yeah, I was seeing that too near Tysons Corner, VA. Fortrunately I had plenty left over to drive to Leesburg where I filled 'er up at the Sheetz for $4.60. And they didn't cut me off at $75 either. And their compressed air was FREE. It used to be free around here not so many years ago. No longer.4.99 pretty much everywhere here now
