Notes...

Cooler temps and heavy load of firewood taken home lowered mpg in last tank. 15 miles remaining was why I filled up in Thomaston (5¢ Shell discount) which is 20¢ higher than Belfast, and higher than most areas in southern Maine.  Tobey's in China was $1.99 on Saturday.  Current futures contract and New York harbor prices usually equate at a pump price of under $1.85.  Rockland pump prices have been unusually stable for many months which means margain is extremely good... If a governor from any party talked of raising the gas tax 10¢ the conversation level would be deafening, yet retailers running at LEAST 25¢ above a good margain barely gets discussed.  For contrast pump prices in Auburn, Maine today are $1.79.  In Newport, Maine they are $1.87.  Thomaston stations rank in the highest 20 prices in Maine.
