"I was over to Costco this afternoon all the pumps have a line of 7 or 8 cars lined up.
Life is to short to spend it in a gas line to save a nichel a gal on gas.
I went down the street no waiting. People are nuts.

I have not been to a gas station to get around town since 5/17/2011.
Refill the Nissan LEAF every night while I sleep. Sometimes a little during the day if needed.

Never a line at home nor any detour from my day to refuel. $60 of electric goes 1500 miles.

Truck and trailer still use plenty of gas but never really fill up at Costco when travelling.

Today in Palm Springs, CA, there is 30 cents between Costco and Sam's Club compared to the other stations in the area. I'll wait in line for a 30 cents difference.

No one likes to wait in line, especially me. But, the price difference at the Costco I use is more than a nickle.
I don't think I've ever waited for more than one car at Costco.
To me, it's worth the short wait.

I have to agree I don't like to wait in a long line,but at my Costco it is 20 cents per gallon cheaper than the brand name stations plus I get points back when using their American Express card. So I go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

On another note,I noticed that on the pumps that it said that the fuel was 10% ethanol. Is that common at other Costco's??

Too bad Costco doesn't sell diesel. We like to stop in for a little shopping and their famous hot dog deal at lunch when we travel. I always have to remind myself that their pumps and inside registers take Amex (not Visa, MC, etc.)

As a "by the way" ... When we go to Florida, we buy groceries at Winn Dixie using their shopper card, which gives you 5 cents "fuel perks" off at the pump for every 50 cents spent at most Shell stations up to 20 gallons per go-round. Then you start over accumulating the credits. Saved 20 cents and found the lowest priced Shell using the great Gas Buddy app.

Costco near me has long gas lines every evening and weekends forget it! During the day at any given time still 4 or 5 in front of you.

if only a nickle, I wouldn't idle too long. but 20-30cents is the difference in my stops. what burns me up are the people, usually of a certain sex, that are the slowest people on earth.

I did it the other day for 50 gallons.

To me it is not how much I save sometime, it is how much the high profit folks don't make off me.
