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

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.

Depend. On how long I can keep getting away with passing bad checks, stolen credit cards, and/or counterfeit cash.

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.
