... between $2.83 and $2.89 are a ripoff! We are now more expensive than Evergreen. Stinkers stinks and the others just follow. Thank goodness for Costco a few days ago was $2.59 and probably lower now. Wholesale gasoline and oil prices are near the LOW of the year but the prices are near the HIGH. Historical data indicates that our gas prices now should be about $2.09/gallon retail so someone is making a LOT of money now!

I agree. Back when it was a Bradleys and the Loaf N Jug kept pace, we were always lower than the stations in town. Now I can find regular for 2.69 or so. Something happened to our nice little market.

:(

This map shows clearly how Denver is generally $2.49 - $2.69. Conifer used to be right about the same as Denver when Bradley was around and competitive. I would rather spend local but not for a 30 cent difference.

This ticks me off too. Ever since stinky took over a while back- any competitive pricing up here has disappeared.
They don't even try to be competitive, and since they don't- all the other stations also raised their prices.

Stinky also changed policies that irritated me. The bradley station in Evergreen was the last station where I could fill up my tank at the pump and then go inside and pay. They stopped allowing this. They also close their station in Evergreen at midnight, so there is no place to grab a snack after midnight in Evergreen anymore. Pleas to the new management to were just ignored...so

I just started buying my gas down the hill- I haven't bought gas in Evergreen since the stinky takeover. I figure if they are no longer sensitive to the customer anymore- I will not be loyal to them either. I used to buy all my gas in Evergreen.

Since I work down the hill- I started using this app...
http://www.lowestgasstationprices.com/

It's only about 75% accurate but it works most the time. It works by zip code and I check my route to find the lowest price on gasoline, and I make sure I'm full before the weekend so I do not need to buy any gas in Conifer or Evergreen.

If most people did this it would help to keep prices low between stations. Even if you only save a few cents, it will help us all to shop competitively.
Looks like I'll fill up today after work for $2.56. Quite a savings over Stinky in Evergreen.

I too now fill up in town at cheaper prices. I used to faithfully fill at the Loaf and Jug to support locally (like most) but now refuse to pay the outrageous prices up here.

I always waited to get gas at Bradley's, rarely could I find it cheaper in town as I only go as far as west Lakewood. Only go to Stinkers now if it's absolutely necessary, maybe 3 times since they took over. What they're making in higher prices won't make up for lost customers. Bradley's in Morrison is still cheap.

As consumers we have a lot of power if we all work together. Do not support the locals if they are ripping us off. If we all (or those of us it works for) buy our gas down the hill, the prices will come down.
