The Air Force doesn't fly avgas burners across the country. Not sure of the Jet A prices, but I'm sure there's enough airline pressure on prices for that.
Airlines almost never pay posted prices, they buy it through fuel contracts. Take a look at the financials the airlines release and they will say what they paid for fuel in the previous quarter, I think AC and WJ were in the 70-80 cent range per litre of jet fuel

Talked to the guys at kakabeca airport today they have fuel on their airport for 1.60. If you can get in there it might be a better option.

Mikey McBryan may have to start another YouTube series to pay for the fill up of his DC-3. It's parked there and he is planning to go to Oshkosh.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you!

First, there is no Esso anymore, World Fuel Services bought Imperial Oil's entire network back in 2016. Unfortunately IOL exited the 100LL business in YQT a few years back due to volumes. This left Shell and their dealers free to price as they see fit.

Does that include taxes?
