No, we didn’t make a special trip, folks, but two of Grenville’s favorite places, Tractor  Supply and Lowe’s, are in Pocomoke, MD. Since we were going there, we got gas too. IF anyone hears of a great deal, let us know . . . maybe it would be worth a road trip!

My husband has an app on his Blackberry called "Poynt" that shows best gas prices within a 50 mile radius, based on your GPS location.

The best price for gas within 50 miles of where we live is $3.42/gallon. Locally, the price is $3.59/gallon.

Hi Linda. We don't have Blackberries here, but i am thinking of growing some Blue Berries!!!!!
The saving grace is that our tractor runs on diesel and is very fuel efficient.

It's getting crazy with the gas prices, that's for sure!

May have to get a motorcycle!

We went to a function down the county at the World Healing Institute at Cobb Station yesterday... saw Ga$ for $3.39 on the way down (Machipongo) but it was $3.42 on the way back up.

I once went into the city and got angry with myself because their gas prices were 4 cents cheaper per litre (about 16 cents/gal) and I should have waited to fill up. Then I calculated that we might be talking $1.50 difference on $40+ total. I decided that it's not really worth sweating over. A drop in the bucket so to speak.

Hi LINDA (PA)maybe the program on your husband's blackberry should "point" this way, luckily we haven't gone beyond $3.44 as of today.
Hey HERMITJIM, if we could manage it we would ride out bicycles to the local grocery store - no gas used at all, just pedal power.
AC, got that right, sometimes the trip to get the cheaper item ends up costing just as much in the end. Luckily, we were already going to get items at places past where the gas was less.
Rigtht on that, SANDRA.

HI Grenville...getting a gas fill up is like planning for a vacations ....you make sure you plan so you go to all the places you want and need to all in one trip!!

Sandra said...

YIKES i am back again to say we hit 3.60 today, nearly fainted on the way to the dogs vet when i saw the sign.

Our price in southern Ontario is $4.62 per gal USD. ($1.20 per litre) I am 100 miles from the nearest US border so it definitely is not worth the drive to get much cheaper gas. But if I am in Michigan or New York state, I do fill up before coming home.

GRAMMIE G, you got that right and lately we try to combine trips like recycling drop-off and grocery shopping.
SANDRA, luckily we are still holding at $3.44.
RUTH, hope your have a fuel-efficient auto; sometimes I wish mine were smaller or at least a bit more fuel efficient.
