Why? I have always felt you are better off buying from a newer station that pumps a lot of fuel, than you are from selecting a certain brand. The higher volume stations usually have the best price as well.

Storage tank condition is everything when buying gas. If it's a station with old leaking tanks, that doesn't pump much gas, it's really not going to matter what the brand is you're pumping out of them. And once a station gets labeled for having lousy gas, customers will disappear quickly, increasing the problem.

Likewise here. We buy a few thousand dollars of gas every month and almost always at the busiest place in town. In my area any Chevron is likely to be a small operation and they worry me because of how old their inventory is.

Since we are in Fl tank inspections are mandatory and if you cannot fix leakers then the state does it for you and this usually closes a small station...

I've been using Speedway(formerly HESS) and even when I travel unless they're not where I am traveling. I have been using their Speedy Rewards Program which earns points for various thing that I like. I don't think that Speedway gas is Top Tier.

We're told fractions of petroleum which make gas and jet fuel are sent to our neck of the woods.
Home heating oil is added to the mix come cooler weather. It's cracked apart nearby.
Therefore "I know" all gas is the same......except for adpack.
I fuel up at a nearby Top Tier station for regular gas. We buy premium at the closest DELTA (ever-growing chain of stations owned by people from India) station on Wednesdays and Sundays when it's 6¢ off per g'loon.
Yes, I play the "octane mix".....makes me feel smart.

How the supply chain has been effected by the attacks in Saudi Arabia AND how prices will be increased is the current game.

In my area there are lots of Exxon, lots of Speedway, Sheetz, and a small chain called Go Mart.. there are only a few BP, and Shells, and one 76. I think there is one or two Chevrons. There are also a few Kroger, and Sams Club.


Personally i go to Exxon..its the same price. And i dont really like anything they sell inside the store so i just get my gas and move along.

I do admit that I stop at Speedway for their coffee and fountain drinks alot...but do not buy their gas.

Use Gas Buddy to find the cheapest gas. Have no loyalty to any brand.
