Yes, within a reasonable distance. I won't go too far out of my way to save a penny if it is going to cost me more in the gas that I burn to get there and back.

Cheapest is RARELY the best.

Connotation: the meaning "around " a word (cheap: inferior, easily broken, dirty, etc.)

Denotation: (as intended: lowest priced)

I always shop at name-brand stations not knowing where the gas at some no-name place came from.

I look for the best VALUE.

Am not going to drive out of my way, paying more in fuel and wear & tear than I save.

Am not going to buy from dirty gas stations. If they can't keep the outside clean then how am I to believe they keep their storage tanks clean?

I keep a written logbook and lately also record purchases in an iPhone app called Road Trip. If a vendor's fuel yields poorer MPG I will cease doing business with them. Exxon, Kroger (gasoline), Kangaroo, and Murphy are currently on my bad list.
