Some cars require premium fuel as do most motorcycles, and gas station owners know that and that is where they will stick it to you. There used to be a time that the difference in price between regular grade fuel and premium fuel was 20 cents. It seems the trend over the past couple years is that stations are now charging a "premium" on premium! Prices between regular grade vary by as much as 60 cents a gallon. It's up to the individual gas station how much they charge for Premium.

I have found in my many travels a handful of gas stations in the Rockford area that consistently don't have a giant price increase between regular and premium

LOWEST PREMIUM (High Octane) Gas prices
