    I'm just curious what type of gas people are getting.

    Do you buy on price, or do you have a specific brand that you buy, or do you go to what's closer?

    Anyone notice that Gas prices have come down again?

    I actually changed the place where I get gas, becuase there is a new place that gives me a free basic carwash with 15 gallons of fuel on a fillup. That's a good deal and I can keep it cleaned every week.

    Every Chevy or GMC I've owned always uses the same gas... Shell regular octane. Currently price of gas around $2.05 here in Houston

    With the car wash, I think I pay like an extra $.02 - $.04 /gallon vs. across the street. However, for 15 gallons I get a free car wash worth like $5. So, I'm paying like an extra $.30 - $.60 for the gas, but I save the rest over the cash wash!

    I really only fuel up when I find cheap gas. I guess I'm cheap. I drive the thing freeway 80% of the time so I just need something to keep it going becuase I don't put a lot of start/stop wear on her.

    I'm in school, so I need to save the pennies.

    I only use 2 types of gas, Shell or BP Amoco. When I used to live in San Francisco, I only use Chevron. Probably the looks of gas stations influences my preference for them.

    Yeah, that's all marketing, isn't that amazing?

    I've been going to Texaco for years, and I really don't know why.

    Right now, gas is on the rise so I've been going to the place down the street that jacked their price to $2.18 (I can get it for $2.13) becuase they give a free car wash with 15 gallons. The TB holds 18, so it's all good. :)

    Again, gas is so expensive that I have to find the cheapest.
