We see more E85 prices around here, but do not have an opportunity to post the price. Do we?

Unfortunately, since there is no good forum search, if the topic is not represented on the first page there is a strong possibility it will be repeated.

Equally unfortunately, even if we had a good forum search it would get repeated more often than it should, but that is the nature of internet forums. If we had more active moderation, the thread would get locked or merged with others, or if discovered early enough, entirely deleted with perhaps a note to the poster that it was a duplicate..

I would hope that there is not encouragement to start multiple topics on the same issue just because each Gas Buddy member has a beating heart in his or her breast. The more topics on the same issue simply disregards any constructive comments (on multiple sides of an issue) as well as dilutes discussion. There is value in adding comments, perspective, opinion, and facts to an on-going discussion.

As many as there are hearts beating in the breasts of GasBuddy members.

Because E85 is not a readily available fuel, along with CNG, propane, etc., E85 prices are not posted on the general pricing blocks. As E85 sales are a local and limited option, you can start a local discussion topic requesting local area members post the fuel price for the various stations that sell E85. You should not post the current price in the original post, but rather use the original post to describe what you want/how you want prices posted, etc., and then (in your first follow-up post) provide a current price in the manner you're asking.
