Anybody know when we will switch over to summer gas or has that already happen?
My station here switched to summer gas a couple weeks ago. You can ask at your local station if/when they expect the "good stuff."Anybody know when we will switch over to summer gas or has that already happen?
The transition varies by state based on weather/temperature differences of geography. However the core dates for summer gas (i.e. when everyone has it) are 6/1 thru 9/15 based on federal regulation. Warm weather states like California and Texas can sell summer gas as early as 4/1 and as late as 10/31, and some states like Arizona sell just a single blend year-round.Anybody know when we will switch over to summer gas or has that already happen?
Seems like we will be switching to winter gas soon. :sad:Gas prices will likely decline even more substantially starting in mid-September as most of the nation begins the transition back to cheaper winter gasoline starting September 16. https://www.gasbuddy.com/go/party-at-the-pump-extends-into-sixth-week-ahead-of-labor-day/
Wondering if you've seen one like this winter-to-summer detail that is more current than 2013 (assuming state laws may have changed since then?) and with summer-to-winter transition detail? My search for this on the EIA site turned up empty...
There wasn’t a change this year for mid-Atlantic states, due to the Philadelphia refinery going kaboom in June.
Oh, bummer - so you've had "winter mpg" all year then. But it'd be an interesting comparison point...It was more of there wasn’t summer blend this year so we have been technically on the winter fuel this summer.
Looks like there's variation within Florida, from law that was revised in 2014 for Miami, Tampa and Jacksonville (Broward, Dade, Duval, Hillsborough, Palm Beach and Pinellas counties)... so it may depend on where you last bought your gas (?).We finally have a real cold streak here in Florida LOL (ok ok - it's was in the 60's today) but the last week or so I have noticed a decrease in gas mileage regardless of temperature. How do I know if winter blend gas has come to Florida?? My MPG's have fallen from 52-56 down to 43-47..
You're already using Summer gas? 😮Winter is gas is over !! the last couple weeks I noticed I gained a couple MPG and a few more with the warmer temps... I usually averaged 38-39 in winter.. 42-43 in summer... I should get that bumper sticker.. " I Pass Prius's "
Hmm... maybe it's more related to warmer temps than end of winter gas (?). It looks like recent New Orleans temps are in the 70-80s, which is summer weather for some of us. Two weeks ago, New Orleans temps were in the 40-50s, per this site - Past Weather in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA — Yesterday or Further Back.Winter is gas is over !! the last couple weeks I noticed I gained a couple MPG and a few more with the warmer temps...
