I used to fill my Honda 50 for $.12 USD, yes, only twelve cents. However, the attendents at one gas station were friends and as a lark would allow me to drain the last bits from each of the many fuel lines and get a free fill up. A couple of them would have the line ready and I would just push the bike by for the cup full of fuel and then on to the next pump. They had more than a dozen pumps and it would only take 5-6 to fill the tank. The tank only held .7 gallon.

I rode a R67/3 for real, but had purchased the Honda from a desperate kid for only $20.

If you have a cell phone that uses "apps" load Octane by Wright Express. The range for 7.5 mi near me is 3.749 to 4.059, 7 stations the lowest was a surprise, been driving right by it, not paying attention. It was well over $4 everywhere going back an forth to CT yesterday and today.

LPG recently rose 50% in one month here in Aus.
It has not returned to the price of 60.7 cpl where it stayed unchanged for a year.
No one says anything. Not the news, not the service station attendant, no-one.
Who else but the fuel industry can do that and get away with it?
