Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

After talking to Brent here in Key West we thought it would be good to post recent fuel prices by location.* Here's the first post:

March 15, 2008
Marker 1 Marina
$3.999 Diesel (total price, red diesel)

BTW, same price at 3 Amigos!

3.77 right now.* It ain't outta the kindness of his heart, SSH marina has it for 3.75 so I am thinking he is matching that.

About to make a trip to Lake Charles, LA and back. Any fuel prices for comparison recently? I'll probably take on some fuel somewhere along the line.

RE: Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

Probably your best bet there Keith is Houston Party Boats in Galveston. Dunno what they are getting but it is usually always cheaper. Also check Harbourwalk. I know it would be a bit outta the way but if you ar taking a lot, it may be worth the 2 hour round trip.

A couple of days ago, Galveston PB was $3.75, and Bow Tie at Lake Charles was something like $3.64. Just bought fuel today in Homa for $3.54.9 plus 4% tax. (net $3.69)

RE: Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

Steve, just got me some of that today.

Funny thing is that 3 Amigos was $4.49 on may way over to SSH....about 45 minutes late on my way back, 3 Amigos was $4.24!!!!! I guess he realized that he couldn't gouge that much. I will go to SSH for now on. They are never more expensive than 3As.

Troy,
We only could take on about 270 gallons. If we had room for 300+ gallons we would have paid $3.69 per gallon.

RE: Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

I am pretty sure it is AFTER the 300 gallons....not the entire purchase.

Baker,
I sure hope you are right. I was running the numbers in my head today and at 270 gallons the next 30 would be FREE the way I figured it!!

RE: Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

I called and he said it was 10% off the entire purchase... Unfortunatly I*only*needed 270 gallons to fill up.*

Someone told me that 3 amigos claims the party boats are coming to him now because they had trouble with water in the fuel from south shore. Seems like I have heard the same story about 3 amigos.

I haven't seen anything that SSH does that is second rate. I have purchased a lot of fuel there and have never had any water show up.

RE: Clear Lake, Texas (Houston)

I have witnessed it personally from 3 Amigos(in a friends boat about 6 years ago). I have bought fuel may times since and have had no problem. I buy fuel there when I need convenience. But a well thought out plan and I will always go somewhere else.

That's funny, I have seen the party boats filling up at SSH every time.

Now if they could just keep the pump out stations working...
