    i couldn't find a suitable option in the poll.

    i neither care about the price nor brand of fuel i put in as long as it is from a serious company like Mobil or Shell.

    if i wanted to save money on gas i simply wouldn't drive.

    I don't really watch gas prices that closely...I go for convenience.

    I believe this is correct. Every 10 cents rise in gasoline prices takes 100 million dollars nationally--out of consumer pockets.

    That's why $4.00 per gallon gasoline sent us over the cliff.

    I wish gas would go up to $10.00 a gallon, then people would quit driving and I wouldn't get slowed down in rush hour traffic.
