Is Cheap Gas Worth the Trip?
If you're filling up you're tank and saving 10 cents per gallon, it's probably worth taking the detour. However, if you're only filling up the tank half way, and prices are only 3 cents cheaper, you're likely not saving much time or money.
So, incorporate nearby gas stations during your day instead of going out of your way. If you're smart about where you fill up, your bank account won't have to run on empty.
