    The only place to get gas with ethanol or MTBE is in munincipalities that don't require oxygenated fuels for emissions compliance. Usually, that mean out in the middle of nowhere. In Texas, you have to go outside of the major cities to find non-oxygenated fuels (no ethanol).

    This is an "emmissions" issue. I have seen some fuel at several docks without ethanol since it is not recommended for some older boats due to the fact that ethanol retains more water. From what I have read the long term plan is to go to 20% ethanol. What I don't understand is how the gas has more ethanol but the price is higher than when there was no ethanol. The whole oil industry is a scam. We are near record prices in oil yet gas is getting cheaper, earlier when oil had hit a two year low gas prices were near an all time high.
