    I've done the math on waiting versus settling versus distance travelled versus the derivitive of slope under numerator squared, so if the line seems too long, I often try another place. But if I have a Costco card burning a hole in my pocket, that's a variable that changes my equation. :backtothechalkboard: And our Costco yesterday was $3.79, but I was full. Then.

Did you spend more than $2.80 on gas starting your car over and over, or sitting idling in the line? If you get paid $10 an hour, that $2.80 is roughly 20 minutes of your time that you could be using to work or enjoy with your kids or anything else than the aggravation of waiting in a long line you could have gotten closer to your house for only a little more. That's basically why I stopped hunting cheapest possible gas, I'll make an effort to find the cheapest convenient gasoline but I certainly won't go out of my way or be inconvenienced by the process any more than I absolutely have to - life is too short to save a couple bucks on a $50 tank.
    I agree with JediTricks.

    Unfortunately, I have an $80-85 tank and get about 20 mpg. So I have adapted by curtailing my travel.

    I notalgically remember the days when I could drive all over town to go toy hunting just to procrastinate. Am so busy now it might be fun - like a 4 hour mini-vacation.

    But useless - for $10 Star Wars figures and $15 deluxe Transformers - and nothing I really want shipping anyway?

    It was $3.83 for me today. There are some stations here where PREMIUM is close to under four bucks.

    I just spent my twenty bucks gas allowance on $3.99/gal at Shell. First sub-four dollar per gallon sale for me in I don't know how many months!

    I'm due for a fill-up (probably tomorrow), but I saw one of the oddest gas price signs: $3.89 for regular grade, $3.91 for mid-grade, and $4.03 for premium. Hmm. I can likely find $3.69, or lower? , here.

    [edit] Got Costco's for $3.63 today; and of course, I chose the line that moved the slowest...
