I commute to Indian Land, but I go through Fort Mill to avoid going through Ballantyne. I know Rock Hill has cheaper gas, but Fort Mill and Indian Land is about 10 cents more than Rock Hill, but still 10 to 15 cents cheaper than any gas station in South Charlotte.

If I'm in or close to SC and need more than half a tank, I'll stop. But I won't go far out of my way, or stop just to get a few gallons.

I just paid $3.74 for Shell 93 octane at the store nearest my home. It's often one of the cheapest but I haven't checked on pricing recently. How does this compare?

Yep. I am usually in SC at least once per week, so I make it a point to fill up when I am. Just like I usually take advantage of being in SC to re-stock the bar.

Indian Land SC has been running at about the same as Union County NC, which is about 10-20 cents lower than Ballantyne. You also have to be careful in SC, because some of the stations have non-cash surcharges.

We fill up in South Carolina when we drive in that direction for any reason. It is just as easy for us to connect with I-485 from Highway 521 as it is to go Highway 16. Sometimes it is closer that way and the traffic is definintely better. We don't make a special trip there just for gas because it doesn't save us enough to make the trip.

Have you ever looked around in the gas station to see the different license plates. Where we go, sometimes there are more North Carolina cars than South Carolina cars.

Generally it is, due to a combination of lower taxes and the fact that many (if not all) liquor stores in SC are independently owned and operated (in NC, liquor distribution is handled by the state). The difference for one bottle of something is not too dramatic, never more than a couple of bucks at most that I have seen - but if you are buying several bottles you can save a bit. However, like some SC gas stations, some SC liquor stores have different prices for cash vs. credit (the latter being a bit higher).

Try here, Frugal MacDoogal Wine and Liquor Warehouse | Fort Mill, SC it's just over the SC border by Carowinds. I thought it was pretty cheap for the USA.
