Premium Price

Leave a comment

My SUV just turned over 175,000 miles yesterday while I was out and about at lunch time. I bought it in December 2001. For the first tank of gasoline that I bought, I paid $0.979 per gallon for premium. Ancient history, right? Here’s a sampling of my records for this vehicle.

Price of premium gasoline per gallon, in December of each year:

$0.979   2001
$1.499   2002
$1.399   2003
$1.759   2004
$2.259   2005
$2.359   2006
$3.099   2007
$1.619   2008
$2.679   2009
$2.979   2010

$0.979 Lowest price, December 2001, Austin, Texas
$4.199 Highest price, July 2008, Houston, Texas
$3.069 Price of last tank of premium, February 2011, Buda, Texas

My next vehicle will not require premium gasoline, you can count on that.
