My Gas Bargain from Yesterday $1.13 gallon
I forgot to mention that yesterday I bought gas for $1.13 a gallon. My grocery store has a deal that for every $100 you spend, you get .20 off per gallon of gas. I got a $1.20 discount off my gas $2.34 - $1.20 = $1.13 gallon. Normally a person would have had to spend $600 in groceries over the past 30 days to get that discount.
But last week they had a special that if you bought 4 items from participating brands - you got a bonus .20 discount off gas. So I stocked up on Old El Paso taco and chili seasonings at $1 each and that's how I got the huge gas discount.
And since we eat tacos and chili pretty often, it won't go to waste.
I could have gotten the gas cheaper if I bought it last week (since gas was down to $2.29 but now its at $2.34). But I didn't need gas last week so I waited until the gas tank was empty to fill-up. One cashier told me that she talked to another customer who had enough discounts last week to buy gas at .09 a gallon!
