I’m not the only one that noticed that gas prices are suddenly much more expensive out-state. Aaron checks in with a review of gas prices between here and Iron Mountain, Michigan. Seems that, once he left the Algore/Whitman Memorial Corn-A-Hole RFG behind, he ran into an average price of $2.50/gallon; until he crossed the Menomonee River into the UP. There, he found multiple stations at $2.14/gallon.
Meanwhile, I mentioned that I filled up in East Troy at the Road Ranger on Hwy 20 and I-43 with some non-Corn-A-Hole non-RFG (otherwise known as good old regular unleaded gas). I paid $2.30 a gallon (rounded up to the nearest penny). Meanwhile, around my neck of the woods (just sothwest of Mitchell Field), it’s $2.19/gallon. Can’t blame the lack of competition; there’s also a Shell and a BP on that corner (the latter, IIRC, laces their gas with corn-a-hole but not the RFG), while there’s a multitude of gas stations in my neck of the woods. Can’t blame the lack of freshness; cash diesel was $2.54/gallon there, and $2.53-$2.58 here.
