Taxes are the main difference (so simple greed is the real answer), but 
you also have seasonally dependent "boutique blends" decreed by state 
and local Governments... and that drives the price up even further. Most 
places would see a dramatic price reduction (and better supply) if only 
"standard" blends were required.

I hardly even look at the "standard 87 octane" price any more. Other 
than my rarely-driven Suburban, everything else drinks the good stuff...
