Today, as I was driving to work, I saw gas at $3.77 a gallon- what a bargain! So, I was posed with this dilemma, should I tank up even though my tank is only a third empty or should I just fill up on my normal schedule? I decided to tank up, filling my car with less than 5 gallons of gas, but still costing me over $18 dollars.
Psychologically it felt good to take advantage of “cheap” gas, but in the end I think I saved only around $.60 based on yesterday’s rate of around $3.90. It’s funny how your behavior changes when faced with rising gas prices.
