Gas prices in your area
This may have been posted here before, but it's good to know information. If you plug in your information, the site will tell you the name and address of stations in your area so that you can choose the least expensive, if you wish.

I see the average in our area (Dallas Metroplex) is $3.21. We buy at Costco nearby and the last time it was $3.05. Guess we are not as bad off as a lot of the country.

You may not want to do that either, hay is running over $200 a ton here right now. It was over $100 a ton during haying season.
Gas is about $3.35/gal here right now. Diesel is about $4.20.

I know what the average price is of the three closest gas stations. As long as it isn't more than 5 a gallon difference I'll fill up at the closest one. The Citgo up the street seems to be 3 cheaper a gallon than the one just around the corner. My dh works in Alabama where they have fewer state taxes on their gas, so it generally runs between 5-10 a gallon cheaper. He always fills up over there. The difference of 3 a gallon is only about 50 to fill my tank. My time running around to find the "best price" isn't worth the 50.

What I find funny is that there is a Shell station right across the street from a Raceway. The Shell station is always at least 15 more expensive. *And* they get their gas from the same place! I kid you not. I watched the gas truck leave the Shell station and drive to the Raceway to deliver gas.
