    I'll start this one with a nice little addition :)

    We buy groceries at Safeway here and like many places they will give you a discount based on the amount of groceries that you buy. Well, there isn't a gas station at the Safeway near us so we don't often buy gas there .. My wife goes yesterday to get a fill up .. The price on the pump is $1.79 and the system offers us a $0.70 discount (per gallon).

    She filled up the car for $16.50 and the price on the pump while she was filling up .. $1.09/gallon

    Now that was cool .. Just think if we were in Oklahoma or something :eek:

    Wow. I paid $2.39 for 93 octane on Friday. Here in Buffalo, regular is around $2.20, 50 miles away in Rochester it's $1.90. Currently we're one of the highest priced areas in the country.

    I think Alaska is still just under $4 a gallon. I like to use this site.

    $1.67 in Tucson for 87. What once cost me $85.00 to fill the mini-van cost me $36.50. I feel like digging a well and creating my own stockpile...

    Kroger gives its customers a .10 to .15 cent discount per gallon for every $100 spent on groceries. Discounts are also offered for prescription purchases, Kroger gift cards etc.
    This infuriates me. Why? Because I am reminded of the discount each and every time I shop at our local Kroger, via advertising at the store, on the receipt, etc. The nearest Kroger Fuel Center is 30 miles away! Of course I could drive the 30 miles each way for the discount but then I wouldn't be saving anything would I?

    There's 2 Kroger Fuel Centers within 5 miles of our house - 1 each direction. We get the 10 cents off on just about every gallon of gas we use. I love it.

    I hear ya, there.

    Gas is just under $1.50 by my house (has been for a couple of weeks) and it freaked me out when I was able to fill up for under $20.

    We are still holding steady at $1.58 a gallon here. I figure OPEC may be able to bump the crude price a little when they meet next but, I am loving the current prices as they are today.

    Wow. 70 cent discount at Safeway. The best we've gotten so far is 30 cents at our Safeway. I haven't quite figured on that discount system but I guess I could go buy more groceries. We do like to eat.:D

    At Giant Eagle stores in Cleveland, you get a discount on gas for spending money at their stores. Last week my wife and I filled up both of our cars for $11.00 total! We shop there anyway for groceries, so the gas discount is a bonus, particularly now with the low prices.

    Full price gas around here is as low as $1.55/gal.
