Both BP stations in Waterloo label their low-cost ethanol/87 octane fuel as "regular" both on the pump and on street sign. Please report on GasBuddy as such, since they both sell a true mid-grade 89.5 octane fuel labelled as "Silver" which is considerably more expensive (Mitchell Ave was $3.599 regular and $3.999 silver yesterday).

Ditto for Clark across the street... IMHO even if it has ethanol, if it is 87 octane and labelled 'just' unleaded - we need to report it as regular.

Me again: your post tonight of BP at 2035 Mitchell & US-218 in Waterloo -- note that their vertical sign says "Unleaded" not plus or super. BP actually has E10/87 (your $3.09 price) and E10/89 ($0.30 or so more) and pure 91 octane premium.

Hello. Gas Buddy's divisions of reg/mid/prem are based on octane levels 87/89/91+ - with the September change from 89 octane to 87 octane E10/Gasahol in Iowa we have a problem: some stations have re-labelled this as Regular or Unleaded with Ethanol (Kwik Star), but many are incorrectly labelling 87 octane as super or plus (Caseys, HyVee). So most stations have two 87 octane 'regulars' and no mid 89 octane fuels. I'm reporting the less-expensive ethanol blend as regular, and putting the clear gas price (if available) in the comments field, since much like E85 clear gasoline is more of a boutique fuel (less than 10% of sales in Iowa).

Visiting or just passing thru?

FYI - you posted a diesel price at Caseys 5226 University Ave & Rownd St CF yesterday. No diesel, no premium here. From the full iowastategasprices.com website, you can "fix" your mistakes by entering $0.00, if you do like me and occasionally stick a price at the wrong station which doesn't sell that grade of fuel

I'm confused by your post 1:45p Tues 6/19 at Murphy USA CF of both regular and midgrade, since they only have midgrade (89oct) with ethanol and premium with ethanol.

Hi millerjp. Unlike most states, in Iowa and Nebraska the least expensive fuel is "Unleaded Plus" or "super unleaded" and is an e10 blend. GB prices should be reported by grade/octane not by lowest to highest price. So straight unleaded (100% gas) is reported on GB as regular even though is it more expensive than midgrade. Thanks for participating!
