Maybe I'm confused, but isn't alcohol free gas still at the pump. Maybe it depends on the state. In my state, you can still buy the more expensive grade without the alcohol. Even though it's a dime more, I usually buy it for vehicles because I figure the mileage offsets the dime, and I never put ethanol into any small engine or my boat.

Some Missouri stations (outside St. L) advertise premium as straight gasoline. It’s $.20-$.22/gallon over regular gas.

Are you sure that is what you are getting, or just the rumor?

In areas that require reformulated gasoline for smog, it is either going to still be MTBE (outlawed in some states) or ethanol.
