Default Gas today-can you beat this?

Gas is down to $1.65 here in Oklahoma, what is everyone else seeing across the Country?
NOTE: I don't run corn gas in my Model A or my '57 Chevy, only in my modern cars.

$2.25-$2.49 today where I am.Nothing I own seems to care what I put in it for gas.I thought a Yamaha 1700 I have might care,but it says 87 octane minimum.I tried it and it still runs the same as the high test.My neighbor rigged up this elaborate setup to remove the alcohol.His chain saws,lawnmower,weed whackers,acted up with the rehabbed gas.That's when he found out removing the alcohol brings the octane down to 77-78.We all had a good laugh about that.(him included)The places the internet says around here that carry alcohol free gas don't seem to know anything about it.

That will get a gallon of non-ethanol gas that I used to buy for $.24 when I first bought the A.

While E10 is available here, I don't know anybody who admits to using it.

I think I paid $2.65 the other day here in Connecticut. That is with corn crud. It is next to impossible to find corn free gas in our state.

$3.699 in San Ramon. The new tax hike will hit me when the next delivery comes in, Next couple of days. Bridge tools up a buck and registration considerably more. Welcome to the state of fruits and nuts. Might have to move back to Oklahoma for the balmy winter and kite flying in the spring and fall.
