For those who fill up in point roberts..

Why is there such a big price difference between can am & shell?

62c/L vs 78 c/L today. First time filling up there in a while and just noticed the huge difference. Should I avoid can am??

$0.03 off only to start. To get higher discounts, you need to spend more money inbetween fill ups at places that is affiliated with that Shell discount program, and those are all US stores / restaurants.
