It's a necessary evil for most of us if we want to get anywhere – you're going to have to fuel up at some point.

I honestly don't make it a habit of noticing gas prices, mainly because when I need it, I need it.

And if you're like me, you stretch it until the last possible moment.  The "E" on my gas gauge generally stands for "Ehhhhh I can make it..."

I know some people who can pinpoint the cheapest gas – to the penny – at any given time. I wish I had enough patience for that, and I'd just as soon not drive all over, wasting the tablespoon or so I have left, trying to save 60 cents.

You've probably noticed gas prices have risen about the $2 mark and very rapidly so. The last time I filled up, maybe a week and a half ago, it was around $2.09. Today, I paid $2.18 (again, I was tickling the "E" pretty harsh).

Where are gas prices consistently the cheapest in your neighborhood?  

Will you go out of your way to fill up there?
