View Full Version : Gas $1.23 a gallon
08-19-2000, 05:08 PM
On the suggestion of SKDCO here, I got a Priceline.com gas card. I've used it once before and saved about $0.12 cents a gallon. Just bought gas for $1.23 a gallon, $0.16 cents less that the pump price, very nice. I can't wait until they get diesel!

Did you read the fine print on the priceline.com gas card?
After 30 days you are subject to a $3 transaction fee every time you use the card.

Stone, the $3 fee is once a month for all PriceLine transactions, not each single transaction.

I got one about a month ago. It is more a novelty than anything else. The 100 gallons a month limit sucks. From what I understand the average savings is between 9-12 cents per gallon. I used it once and got $.12/gallon off. It is also a pain in the ass to use around here, at least at the station I had to buy from.
When I got mine gas was $1.469 and I paid $1.35. I used it once before the gas fell to $1.439, then it fell to $1.389. I still have three gallons left and the gas had fallen to $1.359. Wow...save 9/10 cent per gallon...woohoooo. :rolleyes:
If you get one use it asap. :mad:

Tried to get a card, but due to the regulations here in NJ I wasnt able to get one.

Our regular unleaded gas is already down to 1.23$ a gallon. of course I don't use that in my equipment

Well...here in Maryland...the gas prices for 87 octane is between $1.57 and $1.66. Premium is around $1.75 - $1.84. I'll take whatever savings I can get right now. Diesel would be great too. Right now paying roughly $1.51 at the lowest pump locally.
$139.9 A GAL ......????????????
WOW UP HERE IN NYC ITS CLOSING IN ON 2 BUCKS ....THIS CRAP IS GETING EXPENSIVE ....

We were at 1.34 for a week after a high of 1.97.
But that didn't last long its 1.47 for regular unleaded and going up every week.

If you dont use it up within 90 days, you lose the rest of your unused gallons. And it cant be used for commerical purposes. Oh well !

Sammy, buy only what you need and reimburse yourself with a company check.
