I am a new member and I was ONLINE I was wondering about this site because when I'm out driving am always wondering where could I go to get cheap gas that is in my area. Once I normally fill up as I drive a little further down the street I than see cheaper gas wishing I would of got my gas from that place , so I think this is a very good site once I find out how to put my gas prices on here so I can take advantages of the things you have to offer and hoping that I am not to late to get the points to win the free gas.

No. I NEVER take my car to a car wash. I ALWAYS wash my own cars.

Not really a good deal unless your sucking fumes and have a really dirty vehicle. Here the deal is $.20 per gal, but it's still not worth it. Carwashes are big money makers for the stations, like buying coffee at 7-11 or Starbucks, they have a big profit margin there too.

Only once. It was the equivalent of getting a $7 wash for $4, and the car was hardly clean.
