I will go to the next town over, only 5 miles away, to get gas when it is 10 to 15 cents cheaper. usually the difference is 5 cents or less but it can have wide variations. The other town is more rural with no major roads.

"Out of the way distance" is directly proportional to the emptiness of my tank. I only go a little bit farther if my tank is low and the price difference is significant. Thank you GasBuddy. But I never go very far out of my way.

If one does, it is a waste, because you use extra gas getting there and back.
