Cheaper to Travel It Seems

We should get out more often, Grenville said, driving home from our week-long road trip through the VA Blue Ridge this weekend. Of course, he gets no disagreement from me.

WHY? 
It was really cheaper to travel AWAY from home.

WHY?
When we left our VA eastern shore him, local prices averaged $3.69; when we returned they were $3.65 — not a significant change. 

BUT, on the 6-hour drive home, here's the range of gas prices — from the LOWS to the HIGHS and everywhere in between. Prices got higher, the closer we got to home.

GOOD NEWS is that we didn't pay ANY of those prices, but instead found this price . . .

And, we wish we could have brought a supply home!

cool, we are at the 3.69 price but that was so much better than the week before at 3.79 we were happy.

Our prices are actually sinking too :-) But we still pay more than double what You pay :-)

Have a great day!
