Default Kerosene price

What is the price of Kerosene around you and where is the cheapest place to get it?

I found $3.69 at a Sunoco in Howell (gr river) and $3.29 at a local ghetto station in the D where I'm sure to get asked for $ by guys they let out from halfway houses.

Stupid question, but when you buy it at the gas station, is it a lower quality than the K1 you buy in the store? I ran out of K1 and need to refill, just wondering if I will start getting fumes from my heater with the gas station kerosene.

Same thing as the stuff in the store. Just make sure it does not have dye in it...that stuff is nasty.

They never change the price.

I went there on the way home but I don't have my notes, so I don't remember, but one of that was 3.99. Speedway had the cheapest in Howell at 3.39.

Closest place that sells it through a pump closest to me is almost 20 miles away, I've been burning #1 diesel in my torpedo heater. I can now get my garage up over 60 degrees. Not sure if its a change in fuel or what, but I will stick with diesel for now. Doesn't smell as bad as the kerosene did in the torpedo, I've got a fan up in the rafters circulating the heat.

They were probably the 3.99 now that I think about it. I just remember them being VERY high.
