True, that makes it 10 cents cheaper per gallon by octane rating..... but when you have to use 91+ like some of mine..... and NON-ethanol is not available........ losing 6 % is no fun.

That is $ 2.75 times 6 % = 16.5 cents per gallon equivalent..... !!!!!!!!!!!!

16.5 minus 10 = 6.5 loss.....

So I lose $$$$$$$$ every gallon.

I think that since Commie China is consuming world oil at record rates.... we will never see prices lower than $ 2.50 again.

Take Commie China out of the world consumption figures and the oil surplus would push our prices to $ 1.50 instantly.
