Some states (agricultural) have ethanol in the gas because they have passed laws requiring it.

How many gallons of gasoline does one barrel of oil make?

U.S. refineries produce about 19 gallons of motor gasoline from one barrel (42 gallons) of crude oil. The remainder of the barrel yields distillate and residual fuel oils, jet fuel, and many other products. Refinery yields of individual products vary from month to month as refiners focus operations to meet demand for different products and maximize profits.

In SE Wisconsin were currenly at $3.32 for Reg unleaded.

Healthi, you get to pay more because the state of California knows what a gallon of gas is worth.

We'll be seeing $4.50 by summer for regular. I don't see why diesel is so high anyway. It's just a byproduct of gasoline. Ethanol is just a moisture absorbing corrosive additive

The price of gas here was $2.95 yesterday. Actually went down a few pennies. No ethanol here. We get most of our gas out of Canada. Of course that is 85 octane. My V10 works fine on 85 octane.

Wyoming gets fuel out of Canada. Sask. is close to Wyoming. Fuel costs less in Wyoming?

My head hurts.
