Gas Savings

First of all, isn't it grand to see gas (in the Southeast at least) pushing the $3 mark? Filled up yesterday at $3.08 and on our next trip, I have a stop planned in Southern Georgia where www.gasbuddy.com shows $2.99/gallon.

Recently signed up for Sam's Club Mastercard (no annual fee) which offers a 5% rebate on gas purchased ANYWHERE. While you have to wait until first quarter to get your rebate check and there is a $6000 purchase limit, 5% off $3 is 15 cents a gallon. Beats Flying J, Pilot, Sunoco and other programs that offer the standard 3-7 cents savings per gallon.

With an 80 gallon tank, that's $12 savings per fill-up at a net price of $2.85 on a $3 gallon.

This is by far the best deal I've found. Anyone else doing this?

That is a good deal. My card only offers 3% rewards on gas.
As for gas, I`ve seen it low as 3.10 here.

Not in my neck of the woods. Matter of fact gas at local stations spiked up 14 cents/gal about 10 days ago, then dropped 4 cents to $3.34/gal.

Diesel has been stuck at $3.75/gal for weeks. Don't know if it's because of Biketoberfest or just because they can...................

I'm thrilled to see $1.30/ litre or about $5.00 / US gallon. We were over $1.50/ litre not long ago.

Filled up for $3.19/gal. yesterday north of Detroit. Will make that long drive down to Texas a lot more affordable . . . if it stays there (or lower) until December.
