On the way to work I pass several gas stations. When I’m getting close to needing gas, I try to guess which one is going to be cheapest. It varies. Most of the time, I wait too long and the price goes up, or I don’t buy from the cheapest one and I am forced to buy from the higher one as I’m now running on empty.

I noticed gas often goes up on Wednesday. The gas station by my house was cheapest yesterday, but I was too tired to stop. So I bought the same price gas this morning at the same station…..and for once… I beat the increase. It was 16 cents higher by the end of the day. Even though I only needed about 5 gallons to fill up, so the total savings was less than dollar….it was like winning a round for a change.
