The Chevron just up the hill from me here in Redmond, WA, wants $3.759/gallon for the lowest grade of unleaded. What is it in Miles City?

Well, my guess for a higher price in MC is the distance from the nearest refinery, aka Billings or Mandan. Trucking and all that.

Houston , the self claimed Energy Capital of America, is $3.42.

That's funny.... Gillette calls itself the Energy Capital of the Nation.

.

October cattle are trading at $124.00/cwt. If you know what you are doing, that will work.

If you think prices are bad in MC, try going to Sidney, or even Glendive. I was through Sidney two weeks ago and unleaded was 20 cents a gallon higher than MC. Glendive was 10 cents a gallon higher.

Was just in Billings this past weekend and paid $3.63.

I heard close to a month ago that Jordan was over $4...and I'm not talking about diesel.

Who knew?

And, the price of diesel stinks, but that is the cost of doing business. All heavy industries and most small ones are being affected by the cost of fuel. Airlines, railroads, and agriculture too. I am not defending the costs, but saying it isn't just the ranchers that are 'suffering'.

We travel from Miles City to Kansas City at least twice a year and the highest gas prices we pay are always in Montana.

On South Broadway in Littleton the price has dropped from 3.33 to 3.29. So I guess we are pretty lucky.

I'd like to see more E85 stations around. I just came back from a trip to Bismarck and we bought E30 for $3.39 a gallon. E85 was $2.49 a gallon. My Chevy Impala is a FlexFuel vehicle and ran nicely on 30% ethanol. I don't see why it would do any different on 85% ethanol.

I checked today as I went by a fuel station here in the Emerald City:
Unleaded $3.95
Diesel $4.19

I saw $3.859/gal for the lowest grade unleaded at a notoriously high-priced Chevron in downtown Redmond yesterday.
