Better gasup! TODAY!

glenda_alAugust 27, 2012

After I couldn't get in my regular gas place, due to car lines and a big disaster relief State Farm mobile was filling up, I had to move on down the road and fillup.

No telling what gas will be tomorrow.

I paid $3.53, and right next door BP is $3.65.

Was told the Disaster Relief mobiles, are around here, as it's a good area for them to leave and reach a point of destination wherever Isaac relief is needed.

Glad you filled up, Glenda. B-ham will be on the hurricane's bad side if it hits in LA, so I hope you have plenty of peanut butter, just in case.

I just filled the little car today-the equivalent of $5.26/gal here-and that was the best(cheapest) in the area!

Well, seeems Isaac veered towards Louisiana but we'll get the rains the latter part of the week.

Needed gas cause I have two kids to take to the dentist tomorrow, and it's a drive cause they don't live in my area.

We just got home from Louisiana and we saw lots of the electric company trucks headed south and a line of the big tree limb grinder trucks. They will be close by and ready.
The interstates all had the big electronic display signs saying warning hurricane in the Gulf be prepared!
When the time comes they change it to evacuation route.
I have been praying it would just fizzle out but it keeps moving more towards my family area. It is really looking like it is headed down the path Rita took and that would be really bad.

We gassed up right before Houston and paid $3.69 which was 20c more than we paid the day before.

Glenda, I waved HI! as I drove past B-ham this afternoon. We were evacuated from Gulf Shores this morning and are heading back to Chicago. Short vacation for sure, we only arrived on Saturday!

I find it funny that people will drive miles out of their way to find a $.03/gallon cheaper gas price, when you break it down you have saved only 45 cents on a 15 gallon vehicle. Anything over 10 cents difference when it is within a block of each other I understand, but I look at it "I need gas, here is a gas station, fill 'er up!"

Last Sat. I paid $3.05 with my club card discount. I was happy. I only need to fill up every two weeks.

Our gas prices jumped 12 cents last week to $3.55, and we're nowhere near the coast....go figure. Haven't been out today.-)
