Gotta have gas to go. My car is not hybrid and it likes to eat at least once a week.

1/4 tank is my clue to buy fuel. Running on empty is murder on your fuel pump.

So my car will run. I also go to Stop & Cop a lot cuz I shop there and get the points so I get the cheap gas prices.

I'm as equally likely to stop for a cheap price as I am just for being nearly empty.

I find a cheap price is often the biggest motivator. I travel around the region a lot so I have a lot of different stations I can check, and usually pay around the lowest in the area no matter when I fill up.

Why would you have to "Google" Gas Buddy? Get the Gas Buddy app for your iphone or smartphone, or just type in gasbuddy.com! I swear, people are "Google" crazy!!

A couple of reasons. If I find gas that is a bit lower, I will purchase it. OR if my tank is running low, I will goggle GasBuddy and find lower priced gas!
