Paying Less for Gas…Posted: November 18, 2011
I have decided that I am going to pay for gas with cash for an entire month. Using actual dollars is cheaper in the state I reside in (I realize this is not true for all states). In our area, most stations charge 10-12 cents less per gallon if you forgo using your credit card. Hmmm…so why I been whipping out the plastic all these years?
2) Due to the aforementioned reason, I was never sure how much money to set aside for gas each month.
3) I wanted free airline tickets (we currently use a card that offers free miles)
4) I like routine. Figuring out how/when and where to get cash for gas was not part of my routine.
5) My husband likes to pay for gas with a credit card (we ALWAYS pay our credit card off at the end of the month…just so you know!) He also likes routine! I did manage to convince him to try my little experiment for at least one month, though!
So, there it is folks. I’ve been lazy in this regard. I’m interested in seeing how much of a difference this will make in our monthly gas bill. Will it be worth it? I’ll let you all know at the end of the month!
