$4.35 at my home base (Heber City, UT).

I asked a Lear45 pilot yesterday who was waiting for his passenger what he's seeing across the country and he told me $2.35 at his home base in Virginia.

His company must have something negotiated.

Is Signature in SFO representative though ? Twenty years ago I swore I'd never go there again after they charged me some ridiculous amount, at the time, for parking.

This has got to be putting a squeeze on corporate aviation.

$5.74 at Signature PSP was what I was quoted last week.

Can you guess how much I'm buying or if I'm even going there?

Yeah, but the original poster asked for the highest price, and looking at any given Signature is a good way to do it! :D

They were probably selling it for that BEFORE all this gas-crunch hit!

fuel prices do not affect corporate aviation.

smart departments will work hard to negotiate, tanker when able, etc...as their fuel budgets will be blown away this year, but thinking that a few bucks more per gallon to fill up the GV is going to "put the squeeze" on the company? No way.

what are they going to do? start flying the airlines? -- theres a joke.

A sector that may see some affect is charter. they charge hourly rates....but unlike the stupid airlines they have learned to simply pass on this cost to the customer.

What a novel idea, huh?

Heading to Narita from SFO in a couple of weeks. Let's see... 41,000/6.7 x 5.60= Oh, yeah, who cares? HE's paying for it and HE has to go.

Back to our regularly schedule discussion on chicks and beer. :p TC

The FBO I work for is charging around $4.00 for Jet A, but it is going up by $1.00 a gallon Tuesday morning.

...and since that $30,000 dollar fill-up isn't going to put the squeeze on him, maybe he could send me a few checks worth the value of a top-off so that I can pay off my house!
