Comparing Gas Prices

Now that we have a minivan, we're getting shocked by the high gas prices. (I remember not too long ago, when gas was under a dollar, and I was hoping it would go up to just a little over a dollar, since everyone in our church was in the oil industry and losing their jobs. . .)

Thanks to RealSimple magazine, I found these gas price comparison sites. In our area, there can be a 20 cent price variance among gas stations! That adds up quickly. . .

GasBuddy: Good site, links to local state gas price sites.

GasPriceWatch: Good potential, but not useful for our area.

Thanks for the helpful site! I'm hoping to get to one of the ones on my list before it gets hiked up again!!!

Just using this opportunity to say, Hey, welcome back! And yes, the gas prices are scary!

We filled the gas tank yesterday. Oh. My.

It was a bit of a shocker. I love the freedom of having our own car, but I'm beginning to miss the marshrutkas and the metro and the gypsy taxis.

If you can find it on the radio in your area, you should listen to Clark Howard. He has all sorts of tips on how to find the best deals on everything. His website has lots of good stuff, including, I'm sure, a list of stations that carry him, at clarkhoward.com
