When driving locally, I purchase fuel from 1 of three Shell stations based on price.

I use one of the same three gas stations because they have the best prices and are close to home and don't charge more for using a credit card.

When I was a kid, back when there were SERVICE stations, there was loyalty both ways. Sadly, those days are long gone. I shop cheapest name brand. Lately, that's been one station in my area.

So, yes, in the past couple of months I've been mostly buying at the same location.

I do just because it's almost always the cheapest price in the area and because of convenience. When traveling I have tried to find the same brand.

Costco or local BP station/
Price is a major consideration.

If I need gas here, there's only 1 brand name and it's full serve for the same price. Got my business for sure.

Yes, but the choices are few in my area. I do check out prices in other areas when driving to a different location/area, if the prices are better will fill up.
