    Thanks for the info. This is one more reason to love Costco. Disclaimer: I own a few shares.

    They want to add extra pumps to the Costco in downtown Honolulu. Costco gas prices are usually .20 to .50 a gallon less than the other gas stations so is usually busy. They are open from 5 am until 10 M - F to handle the people that want to fill up.

    A more useful list would be who doesn't sell it.
    Here, Costco is a non factor on gas prices. Sometimes .01 or .02 cheaper.

    Yeah, I know, I go up to vegas and the difference in gas prices aren't that much so no sense going to Costco in vegas to fill up. In Honolulu there can be 40 or so cars waiting in line so sometimes the line goes out on the street.

    Not to be a stick in the mud but I am not joining even though they just opened up a new shop on my daily commute. I was thinking of joining when they opened as their gas prices were then consistently $.20 lower than the street price. That savings would have paid for the membership. Now a month and some later they have tightened and now they are only $.12 cheaper and I can get close to that on my almost-weekly trips to a neighboring state.

    One of my co-workers LOVES Costco, but two are down on them. One said they refused to mount new tires on his front wheels. Another said (and I admit this guy can be a hot-head) that they threatened to revoke his membership and throw him off the property when he backed in his car to fill up and he refused to shut off the pump, re-park the car, and finish filling up.

    I wonder if our UK Costco membership will work in the US? Not that I'm going to need anything, but it would be interesting to have a wander around.

    Always use Mobil or chevron as they have the best cleaning agents added for keeping your engine clean.

    I go for the $1.50 hot dog and pop.
    And to watch the feeding frenzy at the sample booths!
    Of course my bride has other purchases in mind.
    They do have some nice polo shirts from time-to-time, too...

    The lines at the gas pumps are so long at the Costco we visit in Maplewood, MN that we normally don't even consider fueling up there.
