Expensive Gas II

Tonight I stopped to fill up my gas tank.

I have seen gas prices over $6 dollars during the last month.  I was tempted to wait until I was closer to empty and see if the prices continue to drop. However, I had the time this evening and the gas station was not so busy. I would rather not wait in line if I am in a hurry to fill up later.

I don’t fill up enough to remember which side to fill up on. I do really like the gas tank on my car now as I don’t have to unscrew the cap to fill up.

I checked to see how many miles I traveled on my last tank of gas. My last fill up was in January at about $3.40 a gallon. Since then I have driven 2,000 miles at an average of 183.7 mpg. Of course,  I have also charged the batteries many times since then.

It is nice that gas prices have dropped, but really glad that I have my plug-in hybrid that helps me save money no matter what the price.
