I went in to work for a few hours Saturday morning and on my way I was checking gas prices. I knew I needed to fill up that day, but could wait to see what prices looked like on the way there and back before making a decision on where to fill up.
At the time, all the stations on Fry were around $2.79, but as I drove past the Volero at Eldridge and I10 they had it advertised for $2.69. I hadn't seen it cheaper than that anywhere, so I deteremined to look no further and make my purchase there. I pumped the gas and was pleasantly surprised that it cost less than $40 to fill up. I felt great! I had found the bargain and saved a little money. WOOHOO!
After working until 2, my co-worker and I decided to go to lunch at Chili's on Hwy 6.
Confound it if the VERY first gas station I drove past didn't have gas for $2.49!!!!!
Not 5c cheaper, not 10c cheaper.
A full 20c cheaper!!! I could have saved another $3!!
