well, i know whats up but i want to know whats it like in your area...
i think it is like $94 a barell or something....whatever.
that means more at the pump.
i got gas yesterday and it was $3.30 a gallon.
my wife drives a rio and i drive and impala. hers is great on gas and i would say mine is above average. i keep my car maintained and i don't drive
it very much. basically on weekends and during the week she takes hers to work. bout 5 miles each way. mine stay in the garage.
any ways to save? yes, we could go hybrid or solar or take a bus...
aside from that, shy of only driving when you need to(which is much easier in the winter) what can we do?
i don't know if you have a grocery store called 'giant eagle' round you but they're pretty big chains around here. you get their savings card and
you get 'fuel perks' so for each $ you spend you get so much off per gallon of gas...course it starts out small.
my stepdad was over last night and we were talking and when he uses his furl perks card, he is saving $2.28 cents per gallon..
thats a HUGE savings.
they used to drive both their cars and fill his up, then pull hers up and fill it but you can't do that anymore....they now limit it to ONE vehicle
but you can take 30 gallons.
he said he puts 15 gallons in his truck, then uses 3, five gallon cans and fills my moms car up with those....
so, thats a decent way.
just wondering what you guys are paying per gallon..kind of car, etc...
