The Texaco fueling station in Courthouse Square in has a sign publishing gas prices as follows:
- Fusion Gold $6.95 9/10
- Super Fusion Plus+ $7.62 9/10
- Liquid Hydrogen $8.10 9/10
- Regular Unleaded $8.37 9/10
- Super Unleaded Plus+ $8.99 9/10
It’s nice to know that Texaco still supports cars running on unleaded gasoline. However, there’s so much wrong here.
Fusion Gold and Super Fusion Plus+ are fictional. With the existence of Mr. Fusion, it’s unclear who even needs these, but presumably they’d provide some sort of fuel for fusion-powered vehicles without Mr. Fusion.
Liquid Hydrogen is a real thing, but it’s usually used in rockets. Toyota is scheduled to start selling the Toyota Mirai in California in mid-2015. The Mirai is one of the first hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles to be sold commercially. Hydrogen filling stations are rare and currently just say “Hydrogen” on the pumps, not “Liquid Hydrogen”. Hydrogen at a filling station in Emeryville, CA (the only know filling station in the San Francisco Bay Area) is currently priced at $2.90 per gallon.
In our 2015, CaliforniaGasPrices.com reports the current average price for regular unleaded gasoline is approximately $3.17 9/10 per gallon. This is a lot cheaper than Hill Valley’s $8.37 9/10 per gallon price.
Assuming “Super Unleaded Plus+” is premium gasoline, that $9/gallon price is still insanely high. The most expensive gas in California is currently $5.23 9/10 per gallon at Chico’s on Linden Ave. in South San Francisco, near San Francisco International Airport.
