This might have been me, in VA. A local bank has checking account interest rates over 2% if one uses the debit card 10x a month, one auto deduction and check bank statements electronically. So, I run around buying $1 worth of gas or 76 cent hot dogs on the debit card, for a total of 10 times. Kind of a hassle but worth the $80 to $100 in monthly interest.

That's a Splash & Go.

Arco Regular

I just filled up our Jeep Liberty TV today, $3.97 a gallon for regular gas at an ARCO in Orange, CA.

We'll be leaving for the Sierra Nevada next week. We hope to avoid the Mobil station at the bottom of the Tioga Pass coming out of Yosemite and Hwy 395. It's already over $5 dollars a gallon for regular!!!!!!

Here in the East Bay of SanFran I just paid 4.29/gal for diesel. Brand-name premium (SHell, Chevron, 76) is about 4.35, regular is .20 less/gallon. Where I work, on the peninsula, you can expect another .20 to .40 per gallon!

I'm trying to get my flux capacitor fixed to make the NorCal trip quicker, may have to use the TARDIS instead.

We have a local Valero station I've been purchasing fuel at for 20+ years.
Today after nearly 12 years, diesel is cheaper than regular unleaded.
$ 4.50 gal unleaded
$ 4.36 gal diesel

I'm so excited that I'm thinking of changing my license plate frame on my diesel truck to read "My other car is a parked Prius"!
