I will add that prices at that station are normally less than the
competition down the street. One block east and west regular goes for $2.99
and Premium is close to $3.30. The station I bought from simply decided to
not gouge quite as deeply.
A couple of weeks ago I saw gasoline go up by 15 cents per gallon at a local
station. A week later they were back in line with the competition. They
were trying to persuade the local competition to go up too.
The gasoline stations pricing strategy goes like this.
1. Raise the price for no reason other than to make more profit. Nothing
wrong with that.
2. Did they like the results of raising the price?
3. yes, Leave the price at the higher rate.
4. no, Lower the price again.
Just for fun.
In Holland regular (euro 95) is 1.579 per liter
(at a BP station in Wageningen, so probably could be had for a little less)
gas is 1.3572*1.579=$2.1430188 per liter
1 US gallon = 3.78 liter
In Holland 1 gallon of regular costs $8.10
Have a happy Tuesday ...
...and with the Canuck buck being worth $1.03 US that brings it to $4.97 US
per US gallon.

It was a little awkward to pull up behind the Jag of Sarnia Chamber Of
Commerce's president at a Port Huron gas station some time ago.
I pretended not to see him. He appreciated my effort. LOL. (Although
he owes me a round.)
