2012 Nissan Quest LE: This Old Pump
April 29, 2012
We came across cheap gas on the way home from Nevada -- really cheap gas. But the 2012 Nissan Quest was a few decades too late to be served.
How does 58.9 cents per gallon grab you? And it looks like the pump can only display $9.99. Anything over that required some math.
Premium was going for 68.9 cents -- a dime per gallon more. Sound familiar? Makes you wonder if the extra cost of "good" gas has anything at all to do with production costs.
Anyone care to guess when this gas station went out of business? It may help to know this was a rural station in a remote area near the California/Nevada border north of Bishop, Ca about ten miles south of...
...here, where the Quest posed on highway 6 with its front tires in California and its rears in Nevada. Prices out here would have been higher than those in a big city like Los Angeles.
