Thumbs up If you are traveling US 81 in Kansas...

...stop in Concordia. I bought unleaded plus (89octane) for $2.65 at Casey's on the south side of town, chatted with a local gentleman at the pump and bought a sandwich at Subway. Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful. Also, I hear there is a city sponsored rv parking area. Check the campground lists on irv2 for more info. What a great little town!!!

Almost would be worth turning around and going back for some of that. $2.65 huh? Wow. In Watertown, SD., we saw E-30 Flex for $3.05 per gal. I don't think 'Squeaky' would like it though. Man, they even have E-80 out here! What runs on 80% Ethanol? Bob

Are you sure about the price of $2.65 as Gas Buddy shows $3.65 as being the cheapest gas in Concordia,Ks.

OOOOPPPPS, is there such a thing as a Freudian typo? It was $3.65. The wierd thing is super unleaded gas along US-81 is CHEAPER than reg unleaded by as much as 20 cents/gallon. What gives?

Concordia, KS is still a great place.

e-80

all the flex fuel cars run on up to e 85 lots of power bad mileage our car loses 10 miles to the gallon on ethanol so unless there is over a $1.00 a gallon difference it isn't worth it
