West Seattle gas prices are now as high as they ever got during last spring’s price pump-up — the top posted price for regular is $3.49 (Lincoln Park 76, photo at left), which is where it peaked in WS (at that station and 35th/Holden Chevron) last May. The top posted price for premium is $3.83 (Admiral Chevron), and the top posted price, period, is $3.95 for diesel at two Shell stations (Delridge and Roxbury, photo at right). The lowest posted gas price in WS is $3.25 for regular (Delridge Arco, photo at left). All this is from our survey late last night; with prices now matching last year’s high, we thought it was time to take baseline checks of the price range at all WS stations:
If we missed a station, please let us know – we fear our survey might have missed something in east West Seattle (east of Delridge, in particular). The price ranges you see below are regular to premium, as posted at the 20 stations we drove by late last night, and are sorted below from lowest to highest regular prices:

The citywide average is tracked by AAA; we appear to be right on par. We’ll keep a closer eye on WS gas prices here until things settle down – as has been known to happen; if you review our archive of WSB gas-prices coverage, you’ll see prices fell 80 cents a gallon between that mid-May peak and the mid-August valley.
