Sams is the best for premium. Lowest markup.

Yes! It does matter. Sam's Club is better.

I use the top tier gas from Costco. I got poor customer service from Sam's and haven't been back.

I don't have a AE card, so I use Sam's. I doubt if it makes a difference in my area.

Sam's gas works better for me than Kroger or Kangaroo. Every bit as good as Shell, Texaco, or Chevron. But no diesel. There I find Kroger is as good as any.

There's no Costco gas station in Virginia where I live, just a gas station for Sam's Club.

Yet, we do have a Costco store, go figure.

If you're asking about gas quality, they're about the same. So, it just comes down to distance from you & price/gal

No. I have a membership to both. Costco is on my way to and from work, but Sam's Club is actually closer to home, just the other direction. It depends on where I am headed as to where I fill up.

Sam's is closest but I can't justify the membership fees. I still save a lot with other competitors programs.
