Where I live Shell is the most expensive station but I always see people buying fuel there even when another brand across the street is as much as 15 to 20 cents cheaper. It usually is only a 5-10 cent spread but i have seen it at the 20 cent spread. Just wondering if there are a lot on this site that are loyalty to one brand.

I usually shop wherever is cheapest. Usually that is Costco in my area. Although I get a fair amount at BP.

No, but usually go to Ricker's/BP or Speedway because that is what is most common here.

I have no more loyalties to the stations than the stations have to me.

When local, I tend to be loyal to Shell. When traveling, price tends to take priority.

We have no loyalty. We use gas buddy to find the gas and report prices at nearby stations.

I"m partial to Costco, which is not always, but mostly among the cheapest top tier gas around.

I buy gas at one station only because it is convenient and usually in the ballpark pricewise. I do check GB for the best price in a reasonable area. I boycott $peedWay because they seem to drive the price spikes around here.

kinda lean towards kwik-fill, sort of a local brand... like its being local, price very competitive (especially in higher grades) and nickel off with its card, although at moment, that pales next to discover's 5 per cent cash back, particularly with prices on rise...

At work, I try for the lowest prices – especially since certain stations that do low prices also sell enough to keep the gas fresh.

For my car, I go for the cheapest mid-grade gas I can find, locally. I will occasionally go for a Top-Tier brand.

Traveling, I go for cheapest gas...although I will occasionally try to gas up at a certain spot instead of going for pure price.
