Filled up yesterday at an ARCO for 2.99, and it seemed cheap.

Gas was as high as 3.33 just a month ago.

$1.69. Price of a garden hose. That doesn't account the bad aftertaste and hallucinations, though.

10% ethanol is also now 7 cents higher, instead of 7 cents lower, than regular unleaded.

But its somehow magically better for the environment even though it takes more energy to make it than it provides! lol

Right now, they can't make it fast enough. High demand + low supply = higher prices.

I understand bud. My comment was on the viability of Ethanol as a source of fuel, not the prices of it.

Info from Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol#As_a_fuel

Ethanol has only 66% of the energy content of gasoline (in terms of lower heating value with units of "BTU/US gallons").[13]

Some believe Butanol is a better option since it can be made from the same corn and other natural products. It works in all existing cars not just flex fuel ones. It gets better gas-mileage - than gasoline or ethanol and provides better octane levels. It also pollutes less than ethanol or gasoline per mile.

Sure. I'm just saying that the only reason I bought it was because it was alot cheaper. I'm sure there's alot of people just the same.

I would imagine that the price will come down pretty quick because demand is going to drop-off dramatically now that it's not.

Did you notice a drop off in miles to the gallon when you used it?

/me is curious

My vehicle will run on ethanol. I've never actually done it, but the owner's manual says there will be something like a 25% decrease in mileage compared to regular gasoline.

If it were 25% cheaper than gasoline and available somewhere around here I would consider it.

Yeh... that just isnt worth it to me. I dont neccesarily live hand to mouth or anything, but I still count my pennies.

Until they come out with something better... I say F*ck the environment. :D

It's not very noticable. But I'm not using 85% ethanol, I'm using 10% ethanol.

That is for Super Unleaded though, not sure how much reg U is.

Yeah, I'm not starving or anything, but if you knock my gas mileage down from 22 to 16 (sic), that's going to end up costing me a lot of money.

One heck of an expensive warm fuzzy feeling if I am remembering these numbers right... :hmmm:

Exactly... hopefully there will be another alternative soon that is not as expensive as ethanol.

$3.10 near my house, and Naperville is generally one of the least expensive towns in the Chicagoland area. I would imagine it's close to $3.50 or worse in Chicago.

Don't you know Tim that the excuse their using this time is the uncertainty over North Korea. How that Daffy Duck watching clown has anything to do with the production of oil in the M.E. has me baffled. :hmmm: :cuss:

Check out this news clip. I grew up with this guy. He's is getting 70 miles per gallon with some type of revamped gasoline vaporized carbeurator with an old Delta 88. Pretty cool stuff here. He has only filled up 5 times this whole year.

2.76 in Springfield... Though I can usually go about 2-3 weeks without filling up, which comes out to about 4 gallons a week.

I was thinking more along the lines of Fletch.
