Old-fashioned gas war on in Spring Grove
#1 Jul 9, 2008
For Mike Miller of Jackson Township, the extra 10 to 15 cents he saves isn't that big of a deal when he considers how much gas costs in general. "It doesn't matter," Miller said. "Fifteen cents. What does it matter?"
Ummmm I would LOVE to know where this man works that he can say 15cents on a gallon doesn't matter.
Any help matters!!!

I'm sorry but $.15 a gallon is not really that big of a deal.
Think about it.
I drive 75 miles a day to commute to Baltimore County. I would say I accumulate about another 50 random miles running errands and whatnot. This equates to 425 miles a week.
My Honda Civic gets me 35 MPG city/highway mix. This means I use roughly 12 gallons of gas a week.
Gas at $4 a gallon would cost me $2496. Saving $.15 a gallon at $3.85 would cost $2402.40 That is a yearly savings of $93.60.
Now I am not rich, I make an average wage, and a savings of $93.60 is really not worth huffing and puffing over for me.
It could be worse. You could live in Canada or Europe...

If you drive right past the gas station that is offering it for .15 cents less--Why not stop and save. A savings is a saving no matter how small. I know alot I could do with 93.60 a year

I'm sorry this is not on the subject, but has anyone else received sales calls from the Evening Sun on Sundays?
