My GF will drive out of her way to get cheap gas (very annoying).

Years ago She liked driving my old chevy sidestep(I know Ill hear it from the Ford people, but I don't discriminate) , I didn't like her to, but would sometimes let her.

She found a really good price on gas while driving the truck (to good to be true) and decided she'd top it off at a great price.

Immediately after she got gas it started bogging out.

After her further explaining how she couldn't really fit the nozzle in properly, she went in and asked why because she knows not to add diesel fuel. Some dumb ass guy volunteered to helped her. Assuming because it was an old truck it was just designed different, he found a way to cram the nozzle in and hold back the fume blocker with his fingers and managed to get the gas in.

I went back to the gas station with her and told her to show me the pump. Turns out it was that E85 crap he put in.

Luckily It was deluded with a half of take of unleaded. I was able to siphon most of it out and add unleaded back.

The transmission went out soon after. Obviously that had nothing to do with the gas, but she doesn't really know that. I can bring it up when shes annoyingly trying to save 5 cents on gas .

It's not always good to be cheap and Girls shouldn't drive trucks anyways. (Hush Bab's)

I am not one that searches out for cheap gas and usually stop where ever is convenient for me. Last week I stopped and filled up and the price was $2.85. Five minutes later I pass a station that was $2.59. I have never seen that big a difference within one mile of each other.

I'll sometimes see that at an airport exit vs. the next exit 1 mile up the road. They love to gouge the rental car returners.

The only other time I saw something like this was a few years back at an exit off of I-95 somewhere in the middle of FL. The one gas station on the west side of the interchange was $0.25 more expensive than the 2 or 3 stations on the east side of the highway.

OT, $2.49 in NorthEast FL.

$2.48, gotta love the rez =)

It's a full $0.50 more on the edge of the rez. I suppose they take advantage of their proximity to white land, whereas deep rez uses low prices to try to bring them in. It's still around $3.15 in NY.

I filled my truck with $52. A new record low.

Still kind of sad that we get excited when it nears $3. I still remember bitching when it rose to a whopping $1.29 =(

the mid 4 dollar range really ticks me off

I swear the economy rises and falls because of the gas prices

Here's another positive EV. You can link your CET Total Rewards account with Shell's Fuel Rewards Network. For every 500 Tier Credits you earn, you get like 10 cents off a gallon at Shell up to like 50 cents off a month. I've used it a few times. Just have to find a Shell near you that accepts the FRN card.
