Dammit, now you're going to make me do a little research. I asked this question sometime last year - not here - and now I forget why there's a 9/10 price added

I always thought it was just a mind game to make you think you were saving. I don't even pay any attention to it now. The bronco takes so much that a few cents seem like nothin, and I only use premium in my car. F*** gas prices. I'm with blueoval78.

It has something to do with the delivery charge, or something about it being a local tax used for schools, road improvements, etc. I'm not even sure if I'm close on this, but I do know it has nothing to do with making you feel like you're saving any money

Ive kinda gotten to the point that when its $40 bucks or $45, What is $2 bucks difference gonna make? And if i have to drive 10 minutes out of the way, Its just not worth it to me. So the 1.57 or 1.60 doesnt really matter much anymore.

Call me lazy.

Dave's right, it has to do with how they figure the taxes.

If it has to do with the taxes, and the taxes change allll the time, how come the 9/10th's never changes? Wouldnt it be 8/10th's now and then. Or go over a dollar and be 1 or 2/10th's?
