2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: We Found Some Really Expensive Gasoline

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

At $6.899 per gallon, the price of gasoline in Gorda, California illustrates what it might cost to fill the tank of our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG if we lived in Europe. Ouch.

I did a little more digging and discovered something else: That singular filling station in Gorda has a bit of a notorious reputation. At one time, that pump dispensed the most expensive gasoline in the entire United States. I have a feeling this is still true.
