    This afternoon it was $3.55 at the Sheetz at the 283 Mt Joy interchange. They're always a bit on the high side.
    I most always go to WaWa there off Manheim pike. They always seem the cheapest by a couple sents. The last time I was there, it was $3.43 (the other day).

    :D:D That's funny!!

    I travel Rte 30 West to get home from work (Greenfield) and the days I hit the gym on Granite Run are the days I pass Wawa anyway. It's all on the way home...(Landisville)

    Centerville Rd & Rte 30 Outlets are the anti-anti christs! (laugh)

    yeah, i don't pay much attention to it also. Being that now I'm living on campus I don't really need to drive that much at all really, so I could really care less.



    Off topic: You guys in Lancaster have WaWa's and Sheetz's? Aren't they like the same thing? We only have Sheetz in W. PA.

    it is fucked up.
    gas prices used to be affected when shit HAPPENED>
    now it's a betting game. prices going up on a prediction that stuff MIGHT happen?
    bullshit!

    so, if nothing happens, can we get our money back from gas prices that were raised wrongly?

    doubt it.

    It’s not a racket it’s a market. Instead of being one of the 9 in 10 that doesn’t understand economics why don’t you read a book on the subject so you are not fooled by all the nonsense. Here is my top book recommendation.

    Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt

    Yup - we have both. They're the same (in what they offer). It's nice to have both because there aren't many of each, so you can atleast find one close to you.

    I tend to visit Wawa more often as its closer to where I travel. I think Wawa's gas is slightly cheaper than Sheetz. I love Wawa's subs.
