Funny (in a sad way) how $4.89/gallon for 100LL seem like a bargain these days.  :-)

Fuel is still $5.60 at both FBOs on my field (Independence, OR).  Wholesale prices have dropped but I suspect they need to use up the stock they bought at higher prices earlier in the year.  Fortunately, my O235 Long-EZ is economical (5 gal/hr): I feel nowhere near the pain that my neighbors do when they fuel their Bonanzas.

Looking forward to some of that "bargain" 100LL when I go cross-country to southern California later next month.

Yeah, I fuel one tank with mogas at Lebanon when I go cross-country.  But I can't use it for local flights (low altitude, high manifold pressure) due to my engine's 9.7:1 pistons.

If you're a regular at Lebanon, you'll know Tebo.  Sadly, he was killed the other day:
