cheap gas Palatine

new Shell Station just opened up near me at Euclid & Plum Grove Rd. They're having a sale to get people to stop by.

Regular is $3.99
Premium is $4.21

figured there's enough members near Palatine that would be interested.

Carry on...

I go to an independent station. I'll check their prices again during the weekend.

it's about a dime cheaper than most places in Lake County so it's really cheap for Cook County.

New gas stations do this type of thing for promoting business. It will be up to "normal" chicagoland prices soon enough.

If you are filling up a suburban, only about $1 for a smaller tank.

yeah but you still live in WI so gas could be free and you'd still be paying more for it (socially)
