$2.50 when I filled up at Costco mid-week.  Other gas stations are charging $2.53 and up around town.

$2.37 at the local Costco this morning.

One wonders whether tariffs on trade with China will affect these prices as well.

When you consider that the pumps, hoses and other supporting products were probably made in China, not to mention the minimart having to make up some profit margin on lower sales of Chinese made/ingredient items in the store, and general inflation caused by higher prices on all consumer goods putting pressure on higher wages...

Yes, Chinese tariffs probably will affect these prices.

Lowest I've recently seen was $2.13.  I filled up at $2.19 yesterday, after seeing that some places had abruptly jumped to $2.39 - perhaps because of the drone attacks in Saudi?

I filled up on Sunday for $2.15.  Today, 2 days later, and it is up to $2.29.

What happened?

I was in San Antonio yesterday and filled up for $2.02 a mile or so from the airport! 

When I arrived home, the first price I saw near my local airport was $2.24. Closer to home I have seen as low as $2.12, but most are between those two prices.

What is it looking like in your neighborhood?

I paid $2.26 today in Texas, but I went to the expensive place because I'm avoiding traffic near Walmart, Target, and the outlet malls this month.
