    $9.50 and $10.50 in North Ms., same like Tocat says here in La., but the biggest jump is in alcohol, went from $135.00 a drum last yr. to $235.00 this yr. and VP is the only brand that we can get.
    I'm told that the E85 makers are buying up all the Methanol and useing it.

    Sunoco 112 supreme is $345.00 per drum. here in La.

    i think you maybe mistaken on the VP-C16 being $9.00 per gallon.....As a dealer my cost is $10.75 per gallon and it retails upward of of 13.00/14.00 per gallon...


    tell me where you got this for $9.00 in LA ?..You can pm me the name and # if you wish.

    Hello Brian, the c-12 is $7.00 and there was a choice of c-14 or v-16 at $9.00. One thing i know is $45.00 for 5 gal. is $9.00 I bought the C14 this time because my car didnt like the c16. I will post it here, Melrose Equiptment in Harvey La. 504-368-1644. Anyone paying about the same,please post replys, maybe I cant Add?

    all i can say is that i am in VP South Region and you are located in the home area region..maybe our distrubuter has priced it up like this..
    but i will say if your getting VP-C16 for $9.00 per gallon..you are getting a great deal...its over $13.00 per gallon retail out here....
    wish it were this cheap here.

    you need to buy a drum ..
