Re: How much a week do u guys pay in gas

Yeah, I was gonna say that there are other people much worse in this regard than me.

I remember the days from 2005-2007 when I used to spend $450/week on fuel. Now that hurt.

LOL, I wish I could get away with $70 or even a $100 a week.

Imagine how much it hurts that you almost spend away a whole new vehicle's worth in one year's worth of fuel. Ouch! (I'm taking about those 2 years that I averaged around $25K p.a.)

Re: How much a week do u guys pay in gas

The gas station I fill up at (Petro Canada) has "Petro Points" that you earn when buying fuel from them. You get 10 points to every dollar, When I cashed mine in (an all inclusive trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic) I had 660,000 points..... That's $66,000 worth of fuel.... lol

I got that card when I got my Jeep new in late 2005.

Re: How much a week do u guys pay in gas

LOL, you lucky s*o*b. Good to see you're reaping something back of off them just don't send them broke. HAHAHA.

I fill up at a gas station where they offer discounts via shopping vouchers so end up saving "only" around $350 a year.

That's extra. That's why I don't mow my lawn often and use an axe instead of a chainsaw. Trying to save. HAHAHA.

Ya, But I realized that the card had 21% interest rate, So when I cashed in on the points I switched to a card with 9%. If I had that card to begin with I would have saved more, and it would have been real money! haha oh well, live and learn.

Re: How much a week do u guys pay in gas

If I just drive to work and nowhere else, like I usually do, I'll spend $70-$80 per month in gas.
