less when the price spikes and more when prices are dropping.

It depends. Usually, when I'm on the west end, I've made a habit of gassing up on my way home, at one Conoco in particular, because their mid-grade is the cheapest around. If I'm somewhere on the lean side of a half-tank, I do.

However, thanks to GB altering my observation of prices through posting, as soon as I notice an increase at some of the stations along my normal route, I top off, as the stations usually take several days to get up to the same price level.

We fuel our car as it needs it. I try to avoid to use the air conditioner unless we drive on the highway. Every drop of gasoline counts.

It averages about once every two weeks. But, summer trips have killed that average.

when they need gas, I have 2 machines, a car and a truck. The car gets 26 -30 mpg's with a 12 gallon tank and the truck get's 12 - 15 mpg's with a 35 gallon tank. I drive about 200 miles a week, so I don't have to stop that often for fuel.
