Where is your gas money going?

Now I'm confused, I thought "Sheetz" was some kind of off topic joke; you mean it's a real gas company? :P

I hope what you're saying Kor is not true. I'd rather our money not go to anyone who would use it to kill us.

 

I hear you joeybear, we've had our first car almost a year now. Before that we were of the exact same mindset as you but we got tired of the effort and embarrassment of bringing groceries home on the bus not to mention the extra travel time we'd need to factor into all our business or pleasure trips around the city. Having a car has opened up avenues of adventure and time savings we could never have had on the bus, for example; a trip on the bus to the Wild Animal Park would take four hours each way (VS 40 min by car) making it impossible to go without leaching onto a friend for a ride.

Yep! Sheetz is for real, and one of the least expensive companies to buy gasoline from. But maybe they are not in every of the country at this time

Sheetz is indeed for real. We have a few here in Maryland. What I said above is absolutely true. I've seen it with my own eyes.

Perhaps I'm not understanding correctly...but if these other companies don't import oil.....why are their prices as high as the companies that do import..........I use Sheetz...I also drive a Toyota Prius, which is a hybrid car.........which also helps.

Those companies do indeed import oil. They just don't import oil from Middle-Eastern countries. They import oil from Brazil and Venezuela among other places.

actually, that WAS good desicion. i heard that gold was worth more now that the dollar is being driven lower and lower by the euro. but that doesn't mean you shouldn't take risks. just short sell all your stocks. that's what i did. :P actually, it was a simulation. not old enough to have stocks. short selling gets ya a LOT of dough.

Most of the gas "stations" around here have some sort of eating establishment inside. Of course they're more like gas-plexes than the old gas stations. I know one off the Interstate had a Subway, there's another with a Hardee's and another wwith Long John Silver.
