Transportation is Becoming Expensive
As everyone knows, gas prices seem to be going up and down every week now a day. Gas prices also vary from gas station to gas station which causes us to look for the gas station with the lowest prices. The question is: Is it really worth driving around to the gas station with the lowest price per gallon?

Like most I am a working student who does not have time to find other means of transportation other than my car because I can not be late to school and I most definitely can not be late to work. Having a vehicle for transportation is becoming more expensive as the days go by. No one can ever expect to know what the gas prices will be like tomorrow. One day they go way up high to about $2.64 per gallon and the next day they are back down to about $2.41, of course that's just an estimation of what I have seen. It is very frustrating since the price is always changing managing money becomes a little more complicated because you never know what to expect.

Everyone thinks that because gas is about $0.03 cents less at the gas station down the street that they are going to save a lot more money. For example, I live in the northeast side of town, and sometimes I drive to the east side to do run errands, gas always seems to be lower on the east side of town. It is not too much lower approximately $0.06 cents my argument though is that of course it is not worth trying to find the gas station with the lowest price because it wastes time, along the way after pumping gas there will be a gas station with a lower price, and it also wastes gas driving to the gas station out of the way and a little further down the street.

Finding the gas station with the lower price per gallon wastes time looking for it, driving there, and waiting in the line...
