Default Nitro fuel prices

Anyone know if the nitro shortage has passed? Any indication of the nitro fuel prices starting to drop? Just wanted to know since; oil prices have dropped dramatically.

I don't think that the price will come down anytime soon. The reason the price went up was becuase China quit producing the Nitro and it created a shortage, but the problem is that even if it does come back down in price, we might not see a price drop for a while. It is just the cost of racing

I have dropped from 30% to 25% and now, I am going to go to 16% on my next purchase. The last gallon I bought was $34 2 months ago and I was told that it went up again.

I think the only thing that will bring prices back down is if we as consumers easy off the demand. I will be switching to 20% next season.
