Filling up at the Shell station today at Greenwood and Touhy nearby Park Ridge. I noticed the new owners no longer offer free air to top off tires AND they are charging 35 cents more a gallon for regular than the BP right next door. What gives? Looks like I’ll just make the drive over to Joe’s Shell station on Talcott and Cumberland.

I thought the owner of the Touhy/Greenwood & Talcott/Cumberland were the same

I think they have also been higher priced than BP and don’t ever use that station - always use BP!

Get the app for Thornton’s and save 3 cents a gallon or activate email bonus for 6 cents a gallon savings.

Always been a total rip-off. Never go there unless if I didn’t I might be pushing my car home.

The best gas prices are Thortons one block east of the Shell at Touhy and Greenwood.

I do believe from what I read in the past that there is a reason for differences in gas prices. Some add additives in the gas and other companies do not. I remember back in the day one company had a problem with their gas being tweaked so much that it started to cause knocking in some cars. But I highly doubt that a gas company charges more when they are right next to one that is much lower. There is always a business reason.

When using Shell, you can get . 20 cents off a gallon via Jewel-Osco Gas rewards. That’s probably why Shell is always higher than BP or Thornton’s.

I don't think the new owners at greenwood/touhy have any mechanical services, either.

The shell that close to Notre Dame HS on Dempster is reasonable.
