Not sure if this is a good idea but here goes.

I just put 30 bucks in my 4 cylinder cobalt to have the gage barely go past 1/2 full.

So i figured we could start a thread of the lowest prices on the Northwest side.

On 3-14 the price at Valero on Eckert and Babcock was 3.09

and

3.09 at Military and the 151.

Now its your turn post the cheapest gas prices (location and date) you have seen around.

I failed to plan this week, and ended up needing gas near downtown today. I had to pay 3.13 at the Valero on McCullough and ??? They only had one pump going, too, and I thought I was going to run out waiting for my turn.

I think this is a good thread! We probably ought to include all sides of town, though, to make it fair.

But there's always this website, too:
GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada

Hey, this is listed on WOAI...I like the fact you can pop in your zip and it will tell you the best prices in your area locally.

I saw a station near 410 and Vance Jackson selling regular unleaded for 3.29 this evening. The expensive stuff was 3.49 there.

I use San Antonio Gas Prices - Find Cheap Gas Prices in Texas for that. It has a bigger sample that includes more stations around town.

This morning - SE Military and I-37 Shell and Valero: $3.09. Often the Valero and HEB on the west side of I-37 is a couple of cents cheaper, but wasn't worth the time to get over there when I needed to fill up. I filled up today from almost empty and it was about $35. A lot for me

Valero on Babcock and Louis Pasteur was $3.13 this am.

My problem is that I can go ~550-600 miles on one tank, so I often forget because I go so long between fill ups, and then I'm nearly out of gas and desperate.

Okay so I sat there and pumped gas into my 8 cylinder truck (hemi) edition.. and the dollar thing went to 75... where it stopped pumping (I guess they have an automatic turn off thing) and I still had a ways to go.. can anyone say "shoot me?"

I paid 16 cents a gallon at a Shell station at the corner of Garey Ave and Foothill Blvd. OOOppps, sorry that was a flashback to my younger days when they had gas wars and gas stations on every corner of major intersections in S. California.

Let's roll up to the present: $3.08 at Valero on Potranco and West Loop 1604N.

Move ahead to 2009: We wish prices were back at the good ole' days of $3.08 a gallon when we're now paying $4.10 and climbing.

I would kill for $3.09 gas right about now. We're at $3.65 for regular unleaded. You can find it for less, but not much.
