I left Florida Sep 26 and flew up to Chicago and rented a car. Spent a week there. When I left Florida gas was about $2.30sump'n street price. We buy our gas from BJ's Discount Store (like SAM's and COSTCO) and we get it much cheaper there. In Chicago it was $2.99.9 (unless you bought an expensive car wash).

This past year they opened a BJ's Membership Store here in Clearwater (Tampa Bay) area.

This 'membership club discount store' called BJ's (i think it's a southern thang? ... it's like SAM's & COSTCO) ... anyway, gas is always cheaper than the street price ... and if you have a BJ's brand MasterCard, gas is 10 cents off a gallon from their already discounted price . . . so we got regular gas at $2.03.9 this past Monday.

If you purchase a lot of specially marked things at BJ's then you get points added to your account and you can use the points to lower your gas price - they claim as low as two cents a gallon. Now, ya gotta buy a lot of regular groceries and 'stuff' to rack up THAT many points, but I suppose if that's where ya do all you shopping, it might pay off.

I don't think SAM's or COSTCO has THAT kind of program . . . ?

Kroger has their Mastercard the same way except for the first year. The first year you get $.25 off per gallon using their card after that, $.03. They also have points to use. Usually 1 point per $ spent. Gift cards earn 2 points and sometimes 4 points. Also some items earn extra points during specials. For every 100 points, you get $.10 off per gallon.

I put some 87 octane in Mystical's Forester for the trip to the Hospital in Salt Lake. $2.97. Her little Forester is turbo'd and it really flies. The spring on the accelerator is too soft so if you don't keep checking the speedometer, you will be cruising along at 100MPH and not even know it! Then we park in Handicap Zone and hobble into the hospital!
