    That's what I was thinking but the guys on plowsite think it's a bad idea. Idk, if gas hit 5.00 a gallon and u buy now at 3.90 saving a lot of money.

    Was looking into the idea when the new first reported 5 dollars a gallon. I like the idea but could not justify the risk.

    I am sure we will see four dollar gas prices but they will not hold all summer is my guess. If you are a betting man and want to take a risk of gas prices going high and staying high this is for you. I am just going to make sure my every tank I have are full at all times so when i see high prices I will not need to fill up for about an two weeks.

    I do like the fact that you can put the card away when price would fall under 3.90 a gallon and buy it at market price. That is a plus to this program you found.

    Doing clean ups on Tuesday? Kinda early on flyers ain't u? I found out if u do it on only warm days or when it's sunny out u get the most hits.. Now u probably won't get many hits on flyers. r u doing the door hangers or a company?
    I haven't done no ads yet waiting it out. Hell I still have my tanks on trucks/plows too. Lol. Don't think I'll do ads of any kind till end of month. Let the rush go first.

    It has it's ups an downs. If u were using 1,000 gallons a month then I would say yes but for a smaller company probably not.
