    Re: Gas Prices

    Since this post is in the 'Route 808' forum, I find this quote apt (if somewhat dated), "We import 28 percent of our oil from Alaska, but 72 percent comes from foreign sources including Indonesia, China, Papua New Guinea, and Vietnam." [Excerpt from statement of Senator Daniel K. Akaka, February 17, 2005]

    If only we were paying $7/gal (or $10/gal)! Then we might have a chance to control our foreign oil dependency AND traffic problems at the same time.

    We been in Montreal, Canada two weeks ago. Regular in Montreal cost around $7 per gallon! Most cars in Canada - compact cars. Very few trucks (and they obviously used for bussiness). A lot of people riding motorcycles and scooters. Kind of funny to see lady going to work in office (in tipical office outfit) on scooter, but that pretty common in there.
    Also seen A LOT of people on bicycles.

    Costco has a 3% (yes, 3 per cent) cash rebate on gasoline purchases with their Costco card. We save about 13 cents a gallon. If you can get a Costco Business card, you will get a 5% rebate on gasoline any day of the week.

    Correction to my posts on this topic. It is 5¢ off for cash M - Sat., and 10¢ off on Sunday per gallon for cash customers @ Lex Brodie's. Not 5% or 10%. Sorry.

    About 4.60 or something, regular. I got about a few drips over 2 gallons on just $10 worth.

    The discount applies on cash purchases only (5% Mon - Sat; 10% Sun) and the good ol' attendent pumps the gas for ya. Again, CA$H only.
    Aha! Those are lanes 3 & 4...cash/mini-serve! I, too, don't wait to hit empty. I usually top off when the tank is 2/3 full. But that decision is purely psychological. I don't want to see what an empty tank will cost! Denial rocks!
