Default Pump shock, 0E at the marina over $4/gallon!

Fuel w/ 10% ethanol is $3.39/gallon but no ethanol fuel is up to over $4/gallon! I was putting fuel in the boat and watching the gallons instead of the money, for one reason the pumps only go to $99.99 and then they start over again. I asked the fuel dock girl if I was coming up to $200 and to my shock I was almost to the 3rd spin! I ended up over $300 and neither tank is even full.....the price of fish has really gone up!

What are you guys paying in your areas for 0E or 10E?

Topped off a little flats boat at Skull Creek Marina at HHI Friday, and 21 gallons was $95.
no tip
had to dispense the fuel myself, while the pump jockey watched.

Oh yeah, there goes another hundred bucks. That's fun. Same here, it's definitely over 4 a gallon on the water. On the trailer it was 3.29 last week.

Been over $4/gallon here for as long as I can remember at this point. Hoping it goes down now that snowbirds are leaving.

I am not sure the last time I looked on land or the water. It is what it is and I gotta have it. If diesel were 6 bucks a gallon I would still fill up twice a week. Can't make money without it.

As far as the boats go, I rarely pay attention and I am looking at getting boat number 6 right now.

Non-ethanol on the water was $3.79 last week in Gulf Shores, just about the same price as non-thanol at a land station. I was pleasantly shocked, to be honest, although my bill was still a bit over $400...

Be happy you can get 0E fuel, at any price. We northeasterners don't have that option even at the marina.

Channel Grove. If you hear of another location that has 0E fuel at a lower cost please let me know. I'm sure it's going to go up a lot more with Memorial Day weekend coming up.
