Default Current Alky/Race gas Prices in your area

Just trying to get an idea what everyone is paying.

Up here, it seems like we have some very good pricing (depending on seller)

Current going Methanol price is something like $2.19/gal and current Renegade 110 Price something around $5.70/gal

Although it is nice paying 11.50/gal for C16 again!!

What are you guys paying?

I sell fuel (alky only) and prices jumps depending on how I buy/sell it.
I buy by the drum so its a little more this way (drum fee) rather then bulk and pump into a jug. Its also cheaper to get certain brands compared to what I'd call good stuff. I made calls to 12-15 local suppliers, anything from 97 to 99.9% pure. Of course the 97% pure was cheap, I have got any in a few weeks but sold everything I have so will be ordering again soon. Looks like I'll be selling the new for 125-130 with a drum.

Thoses are some good prices, where do you live, next to a race gas refiner? lol

I pay $8 a gallon for 112 by the gallon, or $6 something by the drum which is higher than I paid last year ( which doesn't make sense)
I don't know what the alky guys are paying, but I'm pretty sure its more than 2.19 a gallon.

I got a question as long as were on this subject:



Can somebody explain to me why the price of race gas didnt fall when regular unleaded gas bottomed out last year?


They sure didn't waste their time about raising the price when crude oil sky rocketed, but when the price of crude oil hit rock bottom the price of race gas stayed high, wtf?
Aggravating as hell knowing we're getting the screw.

I only run alky, so I don't know the price of the other. I got my drum filled for $85 which is $1.55 a gallon on Tuesday. Glad I don't live in your area as I couldn't afford it!!!

You'd of hated the stuff last year, over double the price of this year most the year.


A lot of people are still paying high price because the company they get it from hasnt sold last years stuff out and dont want to take a beating.

Welp... I am an alcoholic, so I don't know. But 110 here is 7.50/Gal in Oregon... which means it sucks to be me.

I remember complaining about paying $3.00 a gallon for CAM 2

I use the Sunoco 110 now and I think it is almost 7 bucks...haven't bought any this year yet.
