Time To Buy Gas
In case you're one of those that buys gas only when you absolutely have to, now might be the time to make an exception. According to yesterday's Times- Standard, Renner Petroleum's cardlock stations were selling gas for under $3.00 a gallon the other day. Not sure what it's going for now, but I'm going down today to find out.
Of course, Renner generally sells for ten cents or more less than the other stations around here, with Costco even underpricing Renner. I've been told that Renner prices can change in just seconds, as they're adjusted to the current price Renner buys it for, or some such.
Had a friend tell me he filled one tank on his truck and then the second one. When he checked his bill later in the month, he noticed the same gas he put in the second tank was a penny more or less than the first tank. He called Renner and asked and was told the prices changed based on the current...whatever it was called.
This is good news for some of us that use a lot of gas, especially after the dire warnings we heard of gas prices going through the roof due to that screwed up pipeline in Alaska. Interesting that we always find some corporate conspiracy when gas prices go up. Who do we blame when they go down?
