Do you keep your gas tank full or half full depending on trends in gas prices? When gas prices are trending up do you tend to top off more? And when prices are moving down do you tend to maybe not fill all the way up?

Nope. Fill all the way to the top every time. It's too difficult to predict whether or when the prices will drop or go up.

When I had the van with its 26 gallon tank, I'd gas up when the tank was half full to avoid seeing that "sticker shock".

With my car and its 16 gallon tank, I fill to full each time.
