I'm at the corner this morning needing gas. My car is on fumes. I look at one sign, it's $1.84. I look at another sign, it's $1.84. I look across the street at the third sign on this one corner, and the sign is $1.81. Where do I go?
That's right, I go to the one across the street at $1.81. I push the button to start filling up, but the button says $1.83. How can this be? The sign says $1.81 and there are no people outside changing the numbers so it can't be a recent change...
I'm a little upset. These days $0.02 can be a lot when you're putting over 20 gallons in your car. Then, I got out my trusty little calculator to make sure the math in my head was correct.
With the 21.621 gallons I put in my 4Runner, they screwed me out of $0.43. I decided to let it go this time only because this was the first time in about 2 years that I actually filled up for under $40!! I couldn't believe it! The total was $39.76 whereas the totals were well over $80 just a few months ago.
What are you paying in your area, and have any gas stations tried to pull a fast one on you?
