Fill ‘Er Up

It’s about that time: pre-Memorial Day weekend, summer prices, all kinds of politics involved…

Where’s your cheap gas around the DC area? We did this about a year ago and got a bunch of great responses, for all different areas. Where are you buying your gas for this holiday weekend (and summer) and how much is it. Yes, I know we could all be biking or walking, but really that’s not reasonable for everyone.

So, as I gas up my gas-lovin’ machine tonight for my weekend trip, I’ll be going to the Liberty at the corner of Lee Hwy. and Military/Quincy in north Arlington. By far the cheapest gas I’ve seen in my area in the five years I’ve lived there. Tried and true, always less expensive than competing stations.

Let your fellow reader know where to go!

    Personally, the difference between paying $3/gallon and $3.25/gallon isn’t a deal breaker. Now when it hits $6/gallon, that’s another story.

    I won’t go out of my way for just 3 or 5 cents a gallan, but the Shell (formerly Crown) on Route 7 by St. Anthony’s is consistently some of the cheapest gas around. If I find myself heading that way, I generally try to hook up some cheap gas.

    The Hess in Clarendon’s usually a dime cheaper than the surrounding stations, and there’s always the trick of getting gas when you’re way the heck out of the metropolitan area…

    This is an excellent site for finding the cheapest gas, however, I agree, I won’t go out of my way to save a few cents. It’s just not worth the time. BUT, when it gets over $5 per gallon, that might be a different story!

    If you’re heading westwards, the Sheetz on Route 50 (eastbound) in Loudon County just before South Riding is a good deal.

    And for those using Route 29 to go west/south, the Wawa (29, northbound) and the Raceway (29, southbound) in Gainesville have the cheapest gas I’ve found in the entire DC metro area.
