    I was always told that Cali gas is so expensive due to emissions additives. Is that the true reason? Is it regional?

    This is intended for the Guards in the Seattle area.
    Why is gas so much more on the West Coast?
    In downtown Seattle this past May
    if memory serves me right it was about $3.30 a gallon for a rental car my wife and I had on a Friday

    Over night flight back to Boston and at a Shell station the next day about $3.00 a gallon

    That's a 30 cent a gallon difference boys and girls.

    Gas at Shell, Mobil, Exxon is about $2.05 a gallon on this January 30th
    in Metro Boston.

    What are the prices out in the Seattle area today??

    Gas is still $2.39 here in the West Chester, PA area. Greedy b-----ds. You fill in the blanks. Some places in Philadelphia are about $2.05.

    What HotelSecurity said, minus the Crevier, plus MacEwan.

    Prices are another matter.http://www.ottawagasprices.com/

    3.8 litres to 1 US gallon

    I also pumped gas during high school. The Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar then, making trips to the New York bars even cheaper.

    I had never heard of kangaroo either, untill recently. Before the stations became Kangaroo they were called Cowboys. I was not familiar with Cowboys prior to them opening up here in town. Still don't know much about them but they are here and elsewhere.

    Kangaroo is that what the low riders use to get their cars hopping? Actually I have never heard of that brand.

    started a topic Gasoline Stations

    Gasoline Stations

    Just wondering the brands of Gasoline Stations in your home town?
    In the Boston area:

    GULF-HESS-MOBIL-EXXON-SHELL-SUNOCO-CITGO
    Actually Mobil and Exxon are one in the same
    I'd add Texaco but they were ovetaken by SHELL.

    30 years ago; WE had
    GULF-GETTY-CHEVRON-SUNOCO-SHELL-SINCLAIR-TEXACO-CITGO-MOBIL-JENNEY-ATLANTIC { WHICH BECAME ARCO}-ESSO {WHICH BECAME EXXON}-CONOCO-PHILLIPS

    While in Seattle this past May, I recall buying Gas at a UNION 76.

    Marathon and Husky and Standard are in the Mid-West???

    IRVING AND ESSO ARE IN CANADA ??

    Down South Diamond Shamrock??

    I worked in High School at a Sinclair and SUNOCO gas station
    The pumps were built by TOKEM of Toledo, Ohio.
    In order to clear the pumps back to zero, you had to hand
    crank them on the side

    Back in the 1960s and the Muscle cars
    { Mustangs- Cameros-Plymouth Barriacudas}
    they used high permormance Sunoco 260 gasoline

    Biker used them as well
    I was 17 at the time and one hot summer afternoon
    about 10 Hell's Angels Bikers pulled into the Sunoco
    Station. I allowed them to pump their own gas.
    They were very polite and courteous toward me,
    and even gave me a small tip.

    Summers working in the Sinclair Station and Sunoco
    station were great. We were about 2 miles from
    an amusement park called Paragon Park, and Nantasket Beach
    About 15 miles south of Boston

    What was great is the girls who would come in
    in their bikinis and ask to fill their cars with
    gas. It made the hot summer afternoons fly by.

    Myself and my buddy who worked with me, were always
    trying to get dates with these lovely ladies

    About every 20,000 vehicle we would get lucky and have a date with them
