where do you buy your gas?

do you have a favorite place?
for convenience? cheapest? other preference?

I prefer chevron.. although they are a little further out of the way.. and generally a few cent more expensive than any of the other places around.

Chevron. I'm very loyal to them. They provide excellent service for the few cents more that they charge.

Taco Bell.

Thank you, folks! I'll be here all week!

Seriously -- I buy my gas at whichever gas station I happen to be driving by when I notice I'm running low.

Either BP or Speedway, but most of the time BP because I love the sandwiches their deli makes.

Whatever major brand is cheap and nearby when I need gas. No loyalty to any one of them, but I avoid "no-names."

Whenever I feel like stopping. Saving a few dollars is not worth the hassle.

BP or Casey's I like BP better, but Casey's is easier for me to do due to location.

I usually buy my gas at the gas station. Because they're usually the place that has gas.

I get mine from Shell. It is convenient and the 'Full Service' is excellent.
