You have to have a Sam's Club membership to buy gas there.

In Crook County for just a few days. (Just moved away from Crook to "redneck" Florida a short time ago.) The price of gasoline in northwest Florida was $3.03/gallon and one station in southern Alabama was selling the stuff for $2.99/gallon (on June 26th). Why is gasoline 70 cents higher in Evanston than it is northwest Florida. Since I've lived in Florida, I have been unable to find a single pot-hole in the roads. The roads are in perfect shape. It's my opinion that the extra 70 cents per gallon that you pay in the County of Crook goes right into the po.iticians pockets. Why do you folks who still live here tolerate this nonsense? Everything in northwest Florida is a lot cheaper that in the County of Crook, except the license plate fee and car insurance. 0 percent state income tax in Florida and the sales tax is 7.5 percent. May I suggest that County of Crook residents throw off your chains and start electing Republicans or that you just leave. But please don't come to Florida-Florida already has its quota of Democrats (and Democrats are obnoxious and would ruin Florida).

Why bother making comments on an Evanston site if you're not in Evanston. This guy must have a lot of time on his hands.

True, but so worth it, for the gas prices alone.

Why not? I lived in Evanston for 29-1/2 years and just left for Florida 2 months ago. 29-1/2 years is a long time Leslie. Oh, by the way, why do you tolerate paying an extra 70 cents per gallon and have such miserable roads?
