Hello. Gas Buddy's divisions of reg/mid/prem are based on octane levels 87/89/91+ - with the September change from 89 octane to 87 octane E10/Gasahol in Iowa we have a problem: some stations have re-labelled this as Regular or Unleaded with Ethanol (Kwik Star), but many are incorrectly labelling 87 octane as super or plus (Caseys, HyVee). So most stations have two 87 octane 'regulars' and no mid 89 octane fuels. I'm reporting the less-expensive ethanol blend as regular, and putting the clear gas price (if available) in the comments field, since much like E85 clear gasoline is more of a boutique fuel (less than 10% of sales in Iowa).

--and for Cenex on Main in Cedar Falls - the price on the sign is labelled UNL - not plus,super or anything mid-gradish.
