The article referenced is a perfect example of why I stopped subscribing to The News years ago. The News tends to leave out things we need to know. In this case, I'll only point out two things: 1) When gas is 10 cents cheaper at one station vs another, it is often because the cheaper gas is 10% ethanol. Most cars get 10% better gas mileage with pure petroleum gas. That's worth about 30 cents a gallon at today's prices. 2) Your driving habits affect your gas mileage even more. Most drivers can effectively get a 20% discount by learning to drive better. Here's a good place to learn: http://www.hypermiling.com/car-mpg.html. If you can save 20% by improving your driving, that's 60 cents a gallon!
