High octane gas prices?

Here in Reno, NV I recently found a VP racing gas station that has 93 and 100 octane gas at the pump. Thing is, the price as of last night for the 93 was 5.39 a gallon and 100 was 7 something. So far this is the only high octane station I have found in the area, I was wondering what everyone else is paying for their high octane gas?

Yet another reason the east coast is the best coast. You guys get the good 93OCT.

Wow, everyone else is paying way less then here in Nevada... I tried calling the station and asking why it was so much and the only reply I got was, its "racing gas". I could maybe understand how 100 octane would be more exspensive, but 93? its 2 more then whats at every other pump in town, what gives?

Supply and demand. How many stations have 93 in your area? I literally cannot find a station without 93 here, I'm betting your situation is drastically different.

I think it all depends on the state too... with certain laws possibly...or taxes...
