Personal gas expenses are most reflective of the fuel effeciency of the vehicle, not the relative price per gallon. Drive 55! The $4.50 latte does not require to have a car running in the parking lot.

I remember that democrats, in droves, blamed George Bush for high gas prices in 2008 right on these message boards. I wonder now how many of them would come back on here and admit they were wrong?

"DeHaan said one thing to keep in mind is that prices generally go up on the weekends". "Prices often go up Wednesdays and Thursdays when the Department of Energy releases new petroleum status reports". Whaaaaat? Can the author please decipher this for us? Looks like prices go up Wednesday, Thursday Saturday and Sunday and go down Monday and Tuesday. I'm not sure about Friday. My experience is that there is no pattern to it. Also no rhyme or reason except gouging the sustomer.

Or we could all make sure our tires are inflated to the correct pressure. When are Americans going to have enough of this crap? When is this monopoly going to draw the ire of politicians in congress? What a bunch of spineless people we have in D.C. that are totally out of touch with America.

What amuses me are the people who were waiting in line at Sams Club in order to save 3 cents on a gallon of gas so they can save a whopping 40 cents on the whole tank. Waiting in line, idling, in their cars. The older I get the more I realize most people in general are not that bright.

RAINBOW'S original Fuel Perks partner Shell was replaced by British Petroleum a few years ago.

Slow down, combine trips, have correct tire pressure, take public transportation, walk or ride a bike, or simply drive less - there are choices!

Yes, I am one of the Morons who waited in line at Sam's club. Saved 0.45 cents a gallon for a four minute wait. Who's the Moron now?
