Apparently there's a place across town for $2.74 but that's a stretch, it's mostly between $2.85 and $2.91 though.

I noticed how cheap gas was and how fast it fell in OK when I was there last week. Lucky you!

I filled up last night at a Super Wal-mart for $2.45/gal. They would have knocked another $0.03 off if I had used a Wal-mart credit card or gift card. It's as low as $2.31 in the area today.

The cheapest I've seen around here is $2.79, but if you use a store card, you could save anywhere from $.03 to $.10/gal.

I just paid $2.71 this morning when filling the Jeep (the last tank I bought it cost $3.41! )

Was feeling all smug and clever until http://www.gasbuddy.com/ told me it was $2.49 up the road! :curse:

Sounds like Kroger to me and that's the price in my neck of the woods.

Yep, Kroger is right around the corner from me. I also saw a Swifty's (full-service type station) that offered a $.05 discount if you used cash, instead of a card. Have also seen several places that would give a $.03 discount for debit, not credit card.

It's $2.89 in the Sprint gas station here, Walmart is usually a few cent cheaper though.

I checked gasbuddy but it has Columbus AFB listed as the cheapest place which is a fat lot of good as you can't get on base without permission.
