Where's the cheapest gas?


Since we have lived in Oklahoma we have only purchased gas from QT. That would by Quick Trip for all you out of staters. They are clean, friendly, and they guarantee their gasoline. But since the prices have skyrocketed we get it where it's least expensive.

At first, we relied on friends and word of mouth. Now, we use a couple sites on the net that stay updated to find the cheapest place quickly.
1) http://gasprices.mapquest.com/
2) http://www.gasbuddy.com/
3) http://www.motortrend.com/gas_prices/index.html

All you need to do on each is type in your zip code. (Do NOT spend time filling in anything else!) and up pops 10-20 stations with their prices, locations, and usually a map.

**Our fave is #1 - Mapquest. They always seem to find the cheapest and closest. For instance, tonight it found a station that was 8 cents less than everyone else. I filled up on my way to a ball game!
Be sure to go on back (or over) to Rocks in my Dryer! and check out all the great WFMW tips!

I used to have a lady's name from CA who all the gurus turn to when it comes to gas price fluctuations...but I can't seem to find her anywhere. If anyone knows who I am talking about - PLEASE leave her name or website in a comment. Purty Please!
Update on BS: The Big Shooter is doing good. He is getting out of the house. He has been running a few errands with us. He naturally thinks he is stronger and can handle more than his body actually can...so he wears himself out...But, he is getting up and around beautifully! He had a recent HUGE TRAUMA that I will share with you tomorrow though.
Love Note to my Big Shooter: Nothin mushy or sentimental tonight. I am just proud of how far you've come. You are amazing big guy. I love you. Oh, and hey, in case I haven't said this at least thirty times today, "Dude, you're cancer-free...!"

Thank you for letting me see if I really am getting the cheapest gas within 30 miles... I am. I am luck that I can get this 3 miles from my house.

Great advice - I knew about gasbuddy and try to use that one regularly, but I wasn't aware of the others. Thanks!

Okay, you know it takes me awhile to get into the groove of things... I went onto the WFMW and was linking to other blogs and I must say your blog rocks! Your graphics are great, the music, titles, everything! I just didn't have much to compair it to before today (I'm getting to the 21st century...slowly). love, Heather

I think your blog made me realize that I need to move... the cheapest gas is 7 miles away and it's $3.94, which isn't exactly a great deal!

I've seen it 3.55 in BA. Thanks for the heads up.
