Great idea...NOT. Mandate even more bureaucratic paperwork on a small business that makes almost nothing on sales of the commodity you believe needs to be "dominated".

There are at least 2 online databases showing prices for counties around the country. Otherwise, look at the signs in front of the station.

I suspect you would file a lawsuit for false advertising if you went into a station that advertised RUL at 1.99.9 and it had just found out that the price had gone down $0.01.
Wretched excess is just barely enough.

FWIW, we stopped at a Pilot recently. Their "new" policy is that if you are using a CC (not a fueler card), you have to declare how much fuel you are buying before they will turn on the pump. The net result (besides having my DW fuming) was that they lost about $150 in sales. We bought $50 - but would have gotten more like $200 - but I didn't know exactly how much it would take. Not to mention the policy, for diesel, in a MH, seemed ludicrous.

Their explanation was that they were pre-approving all CC's, because of too many "over limit" rejections.

We are loyal FJ customers, having used them all over the country. Just like any other company, quality of service varies from location to location. We don't even try to use their restaurants - fat-friendly menus and lousy service made this decision for us. Our favorite for fueling is I-44 / US 71 in Joplin, MO. (One factor - MO has the lowest fuel prices in the country.)

We actually like their restaurants, sometimes we need a fix of "fat friendly" food and we have had no problems with service, at least in the southeast.

I never had that problem last week in any Flying J's.
But I only got fuel at.
I465 Exit 4 IN.
I65 Exit 2 KY
I75 Exit 201 GA.
I75 Exit 2 GA.

No problem putting CC in & then RV Card. Got to pump whatever amount I wanted. No questions ask on how much I wanted at any of those.
And I used two different CC.

I encountered the Pilot prepay 1 year ago in Fort Myers.

You have to go inside and if you want to fill up, charge more than you think you need, then go back inside after fueling and have the excess charges credited back to your credit card.

Looking at the Pilot web site, I don't see any Fueler cards for RV's, only commercial trucks.

It is really a shame. Last night, we drove past the Flying J in Waco where we always stop. We needed propane and fuel. The signs showed $2.629 (the website says $2.569 today) for diesel so we didn't stop. We did stop at the Love's in Ft. Worth for $2.499. The $6.63 difference that we saved on our 51 gallon purchase was like getting almost 3 gallons free and the Love's is actually closer to the freeway than the Flying J was. We'll get the propane someplace else, too.
