Re: now that gas is hedging $3/gal, are your driving habits gonna change

unfortunately there is nothing I can do.. I'm in Sales, so I am driving all the time to meetings...

so far, the cheapest gas station that I know of in the Galleria area is at Gessner @ Westheimer "Wild West" gas station or something..


if anyone knows of a cheaper place.. please post

Re: now that gas is hedging $3/gal, are your driving habits gonna change

Wife and I carpool majority of the time, and hop on the HOV. When we cant, I take the bike to work. I think I may start having her take the Contour to work instead of the Jeep, but I doubt she'll go for that.
