Here’s Menlo Park, where a Shell will get $5 a gallon out of you for full-serve (which nobody needs*) V-Power premium (which nobody needs**).

All right, forget about full-serve – here you go, $5.03 in South San Francisco for premium**
So, what’s the next threshold, $6 a gallon?
*Oh, you need full service ’cause you have a handicapped placard and you’re part of the ten percent of placard holders in town what isn’t running a free parking scam? O.K., then be my guest, full-serve for you!
**Oh, you need premium V-Power? No you don’t, you just think you do. (Be sure to stay out of Montana, which has some areas where even 87 octane isn’t available. You’d have to fill up with less than 87 if you ever wanted to come back to the 415. Oh well.)
