But is the waiting in the Costco line worth the few dollars you're saving? I used to wait in line at Costco all the time but my wife and son did the math and it just wasn't worth the extra few dollars you save when you count the time you spend waiting. The only time I get gas at Costco is around 7:30 am at Airport Blvd. because many times I can just drive up to a pump.
The last time I went to Costco not in the morning was a few weeks ago when I had time to kill. Someone started honking their horn like crazy in another line. Finally the Costco person went over to them and there was a yelling match likeyou wouldn't believe. Someone "cut" the line and went to the pump in front of another person. Yikes.
By the way, Chevron in San Francisco was around $3.35 and in San Jose $3.21 the other day.
