Over time, Supply and demand adjust to the equilibrium price.

As demand drops, price drops, then supply, then prices increase etc.

Magic!

Bringing back to life an old post on gas prices, thought it was funny how $2.29 a gallon was a shock back then

Northern Wisconsin already has some nice Fall colors! Wish I were in the Boxster to take more of it in.

@fig and @johnsonrj74

Don't forget that we do at least get a little more octane for our buck in AUS and the UK. Aus regular is 93 or 95 RON and premium is 98 (IIRC... haven't had any cause to buy regular since having a boxster), and same in the UK (again IIRC).

But I can say for sure that petrol companies here in aus are a pack of thieves.

Gas

Super here in Quebec is 1.39 liter so 1.39 X 4.56 l = 6.25 $ a gallon

Sorry the octane is the same over here, we just state it differently. Our 87 is the same as your 92.
