Now that I have my own smart phone, I have come to appreciate applications. Like Gas Buddy. I like being able to do a quick survey of how much gas is and where is the cheapest gas closest to me.
I no longer understand our gas prices. I can't believe how much they can vary from morning to night, and then across community boundaries. Growing up, I remember my community being pretty cheap compared to others. Now, as soon as I cross the last bridge heading home, gas jumps by 3 - 5 cents on average per litre. Do they think we are stupid? Hello, people won't use a wonderful bridge because it has a toll and you don't think people will drive 2km farther to save a few bucks?
Aside from all my other midlife changes I seem to be grappling with, I now think about how and when I buy my gas. I have a plan. We have a family strategy since we fill the van up in the states every Saturday. I am tempted to do it before work on Tuesdays for my blazer.. but I just don't seem to be that motivated to leave that much earlier in the morning than I need to.
