Avgas is a big problem for us in California. I think the fuel problems will kill the buoyant airplane market, and drive pilots to other endeavors.
I am out for sure!!
Southern California avgas (at many smaller airports) was for a couple of weeks cheaper than our regular grade auto fuel. Avgas then went up and mogas declined somewhat, but at the moment the differential is still only about $0.45 with my home port 100LL $5.95. At towered airports though, it appears the sky’s the limit, example $8.65 for 100LL @ KPSP.
Yes, Av Gas is on the rise. At my airport in West TN one year ago 100LL was 3.26 gallon now it is 4.78. Kennett, MO last year was in the mid 3 dollar range now it is 5.00. Elk City, OK was in the mid 3 dollar range now 5.00 Yes, it will put a damper on GA. All the airports mentioned are smaller GA airports. I use AirNav to find the cheapest fuel.
