Buying Gas In Town
When I think about it, buying gas in our town is a bit of an adventure for me. I used to buy gas at the Chevron on a regular basis. Chevron gas had an additive called Techron which was more convenient than buy bottles of the fuel system cleaner. All of that changed when the Chevron became a BP. Shortly after the pumps were relabeled and the signs were put up, the pumps quit accepting my bank card. I haven’t been able to purchase gas there since then. I doubt that my bank card is bad since I can use it elsewhere. PeaceMBW has the same problem with her bank card. Oh well, I can find another station.
Ok, since I can’t buy anymore at the new BP station, I’ve been buying gas at the Shell station. My bank card works there. My only complaint there is the extremely slow pumps. If they really want me to take the double Kroger receipt thingy, then just print the dang thing. All the delays are just plain annoying.
I’ve only bought gas at the original BP station a couple of times. The place always looks closed to me. Does anybody else find it odd that we have two BP stations within line of site of each other? I hear that this is the place to party if you’re stranded in town.
Going to the Mapco is a spur of the moment decision. I have to be low on gas, and the parking lot needs to be empty. That parking lot is just crazy at times, and I’ve had to wait a few times while someone tries to get their trailer through the lot. If I can swing into one of the far pumps by the kerosene tank, then we’re in business.
Oh well, that’s what we’ve got. I’m just glad that all of them are consistently cheaper than places in Nashville.
