Price of HEET alcohol for stoves

Post by zelph » Thu Jul 10, 2008 12:25 pm

I recently needed some HEET to do an indoors demo of my jello mold baking skills :D

I went down to the local gas station to get a couple of bottles of HEET. Grabbed 2 off the shelf, went to the register to pay, the clerk says $4.29 cents please. I give her my 5 dollar bill and away I go.

Can You imagine that!!!!! $2.00 a bottle. What a rip!!!!

What the going price in your areas?

(i did get my change from the five)

About the same, I am afraid. I think the local Wally World (next to where I work in Broomfield, CO) may have it less expensive, though.

I really need to pick up some denatured alcohol. A lot less $$$$.

I picked a couple of bottles up a Wal-mart a few days ago. It was only about $1.50. Next time I go there I'll check to be sure.
This is NE Oklahoma.

Thanks guys for the feedback. :)

Early spring of this year I passed up a good deal on it at the Oasis Rest Stops on the Illinois tollway system near Chicago. They had End Of Season sale on them. An unheard of price = .59 cents. (I'm kickin myself, yesiree folks :D )

I finally got around to looking at the price of HEET.
Here in St. Paul, MN at my local gas station it was $1.49.

Thanks for the feedback.

I used to see it for $1.00 a bottle. I can see why we don't prefer to use it for testing our new design stoves :o
