    ...at Martin's in Waynesboro, VA. The price was $1.499 and I had $.50 in grocery discounts. I am really picky about cutting off the pump at a nice round figure (my Grandfather owned a gas station and when we "helped," this was one of his rules) and that is dang hard to do when gas is $4.50 a gallon. Tonight I has to pull the trigger three more times!

    Jolly good show jolly good. Thats what I like about safeway, smiths, and other such grocery stores that give discounts based on amount of purchase. I tend to get a lot of 10 cent discounts which sure makes it nice.

    I sure wish it would move South, GAS is still pushing around 1.67 up to 2.05 a gallon at some stations. But why would anyone pay 2.05 p.g. for gas when they could drive a few blocks and get it for 1.67 p.g

    You lucky folks. I'm still paying $2.59 for diesel in Texas. I thought Texas would be cheaper since they pump it and refine it. Not so.

    Cheapest diesel so far was in NM. It was $2.22/gal. :eek: It still beats $5.09 last July in Washington. :approve:

    Well, I just filled my car with regular for 1.299 in Roanoke, Va. I saw 1.289, but that was an off brand, I filled with Exxon. The best price for Diesel is 2.499 and that is just west of Bedford.

    I live in Greenwood, VA (close to Crozet) and work east of here in Charlottesville but tend to do all of my shopping (unless it is something I can pick up after work or during lunch) "over the (Afton) mountain" in Waynesboro. Comparing BP stations (I have a card that gives a rebate), the prices are typically cheapest in Waynesboro, $.30 more in Charlottesville and $.10 more than that in Crozet. Amazing.

    The announcer on Texas radio today said diesel is higher because of the EPA mandated low sulfur diesel we have to use now. Oh boy, I'm doing my part to stop the Global Warming that the liberal scammers are doing their best to perpetuate at the cost of our liberty. :angry:

    gotta love the grocery discounts, the Giant Eagle stores here in NorthEast Ohio are offering .20 off on every $50.00 spent, my wife filled up our van last week and it cost us nothing, the discount was equal to the price per gallon.

    Dang what a break you got. Gas here in my home town is now hanging around $1.59, not bad, but wish it hang around until spring so I can really enjoy it more.
