    I’ve Got Gas!

    Yesterday I went looking for gas of my car. First, I went to my regular station and found that Exxon Supreme was $3.89 a gallon, the day before it was $3.79. I was annoyed so I said the heck with this and went on my errands when I passed another Exxon station, what’s up with this, Supreme was $3.99 a gallon.

    No way am I giving them $3.99 a gallon. By now, you may have figured out that I drive a car that requires high-octane gas and I probably shouldn’t be worrying about $.10 a gallon, but hey, it’s the principle of the thing.

    In any case, seeing the $3.99 just ticked me off. Now I was on a quest, I have $3.89 in my pocket so what have I got to lose, other than wasting gas looking for cheaper gas, but there was one more Exxon station that was on my way so why not give it a shot?

    Victory! The next station sold Exxon Supreme for $3.79…fill er up! Given I had to put 16 gallons in the car, I saved a whopping $3.20, almost a gallon for free…less what I used driving from station to station of course, but like I said it is the principle of the thing after all.

    Makes you wonder doesn’t it. Three stations within the same town and not more than a mile and half apart and yet a twenty cent a gallon difference. Apparently, it is not the oil companies that are ripping us off, the local station guy has a piece of the pie as well.

    I’m not one of those individuals who will sit in line at a discount station running my engine for twenty minutes to save ten cents a gallon, but twenty cents and no wait, what a deal!

    Check the station's prices online first, then you won't have to waste any gas driving around for a bargain.

    Thursday is the mini-mini price wars here, I know it and wait for it. (it is mini-mini, because it certainly is not like the old days-and no green stamps too!) I got gas for $3.49, which is the cheapest I've seen it in awhile. Of course it is back up with a holiday weekend. But I will watch online next Thursday when it is time to fill up the tank.

    The sudden price changes from AM to PM on the same day are most annoying.
