It really pays to shop around...

Here's what I found for 1 Gallon of Micron Extra. What are some of these places thinking with these kinds of mark-ups ???

Fawcett - $277.95
West Marine - $239.99 ($40 rebate returned to you in 2 to 2 1/2 months)
Bacon - $220.99
Port Annapolis - $210.00

Anyone found a cheaper price that's local to Annapolis. Or an online price that would beat Port Annapolis's price with shipping included?

Boat Bandit (online) has it for $198.99.

Shipping is gonna be around $30.00 with just about everybody, as it is considered a hazardous material.
