I buy at the cheapest along my route, so it's a mix of the same stations.

When driving locally, I purchase fuel from 1 of three Shell stations based on price. When traveling, I tend to be more price orient.

Yes, usually. When I go down to the city of Toronto, there are a series of gas outlets right on highway 11, just south of Gravenhurst Ont. and they always have a much better rate for their gas sales than in Toronto. At the writing of this message, Toronto is selling gas for $1.41 approx. and Gravenhurst is selling at $1.26.9, need I say more?

The closest gas station to my house is consistently the cheapest gas station in a 10km radius (always at least $0.03/L cheaper). So, naturally, they always get my business.
