$4.539 for 87 octane at what we call "ANSI Standard Arco," which typically has the lowest price. There's one other station that's occasionally a cent lower.
I saw a Chevron charging $4.699/$4.999/$5.099, which caught my eye because of the huge jump from the bottom grade to the mid-grade. They weren't in the middle of changing their prices, either.
The Arco up the street, which is more expensive than a lot of Arcos, is $4.569. There's a 76 station a couple doors up from them, which for months now has had their prices pegged at 2 cents higher than that Arco, and today we noticed they're now 3 cents higher. (The 76 station on the next boulevard over, so like 8 blocks away, is typically 15-20 cents a gallon higher, and their cross-the-street competition is even pricier.)
