Yesterday I was driving home and noticed I needed gas. I saw it was $2.55 at two of the places I regularly go to. I wasn't feeling it so I decided that I would just get it today. The price today went up to $2.59! I was kind of ticked off. On top of that I had just passed one that was $2.55. OK in reality it wasn't that big of a deal. I think I paid an extra 32 cents but still.
Today I learned there is a "best day of the week" to buy gas in NY. It's Monday. See Monday is worth something. The Worst day is Friday followed by Saturday & Sunday. The article said if you switch from filling up on Friday to Monday you'll save about $20 to $30 per year. Of course if you go into the convenient mart and get an energy drink and a Snickers bar on Monday that all goes out the window, but it's good to know.
