I'm still here in Gonzales, LA doing relief work. When I called here a
week ago Monday their price was $3.21. They got a partial tanker full on
Tuesday morning and, upon my arrival, the price went up to approximately
$4.05, then they got another tanker full a few days later and it went to
$4.36. A lot of planes are based here because of the relief effort. I
think they have had at least 4 tankers of Jet A delivered to supply the
helicopters and high performance fixed-wings. We have heard that the
Baton Rouge Airport has had 90 tankers of fuel delivered since the
hurricane hit. At 8,000 gals. per tanker that's 720,000 gallons of fuel!
That would keep me supplied for at least a year

You know, ever since I began flying, 100LL has averaged about fifty
cents per gallon higher than regular unleaded (in the Southeast). Last
weekend I was down at my maintenance hangar in KSGJ, where they have
both trucked fuel and a self-serve station. I had just filled up my
truck at a Gate station on US1, on the way down to the hangar, at a
price of $3.09. I drove over to check on the self-serve Avgas, and it
was posted at $2.95 (TWO ninety-five). First time in my flying career
that 100LL was cheaper than regular unleaded auto fuel.

Just got gas yesterday, curious to see how the rest of the country is
fairing..... Willow Glenn had 100LL for $4.27, thought it was a
mistake till
I back into Redding, CA. Fuel from the truck delivered to the hanger
was
$4.54, and fuel for normal fly in traffic is $4.95. Wondering if
others
are paying these prices yet for 100LL
