Is that the green and yellow gas station that used to be Amaco?

They are green and yellow, but I don't think they ever used to be anything but BP...isn't that British Petroleum?

Normally they have the highest gas prices of the bunch! :-S

Hmm... there was an Amaco near my house and now it's a BP, maybe Amaco just left.

I think you're right Flock, I think BP bought out Amoco.

Yes.... BP merged with Amoco about 10 years ago, and many Amoco stations changed over to become BP stations and vice-versa.....

I always plan my commute through the cheap gas station route, it's too far out of my way, nor really out of my way at all.
It's all about the planning and execution.

I'd say it's about time to put some serious money into Honda and Toyota stocks.
I work at a company of only about 20 people, but most have 40 minute+ commutes, and just about all of them drive SUVs or full size trucks.
They're getting killed, and getting sick of it. Several people are already looking into getting rid of their SUVs.
The days of the fashionable 12 mpg grocery-getter may be coming to a close.
;-D
