    If you save ten cents a gallon and have a 20-gallon tank, you save $2 on a tank of gas. Two dollars buys about half a gallon of gas. Unless you get 40 mpg, you are not going to get ahead driving 20 miles out of your way for slightly cheaper gas.

    I'm trying to limit myself to ten gallons a week, and I may cut it back to seven, or even five. It works OK except when I have to do a lot of driving at work. I also use the cost of gas to justify the unkempt state of my lawn, but the real truth there is that I just don't like doing yard work

    see, that's what i've been thinking. yes, the gas may also be a few cents cheaper six miles across town, but when i have a 15 gallon tank, how much difference does a few cents really matter? not much.

    Re: Gas Prices

    hubby is like that - driving across town to get cheaper gas.
    I don't drive a whole lot, working from home. But I consider my time a premium asset. I'll just hit the one up the street - its not that big of a difference, honestly, for me.

    Re: Gas Prices

    While running errands today, saw a station that was 3.67....grrr....this after I filled up yesterday at 3.89 and thought that was a good price. Granted the station was 20 miles away but if I had known? I could have hit it while doing the errand or waited till I drove past it at work. When you have an 18 gallon tank, those couple of bucks make a difference but not enough to go out of my way for it.

    Heard on the news that Ford has decided not to manufacture big amounts of trucks this year. I've also heard they are focusing on the smaller cars and making them more fuel efficient. I hope this doesn't mean huge layoffs for workers.

    It dropped here in Columbus to $3.82 for regular. I held off filling up my cruiser hoping it would go down. Now, do I wait for it to go lower or take a chance now?
