$2.42 a gallon vs $2.44 a gallon

October 10th, 2017 at 07:33 pm

For some reason I'm annoyed.

So I had $20.76 left in my gas ⛽️ envelope. Went to Murphy's, gas there is $2.42 per gallon. All the lights were on at the station but when I tried to go inside, the doors was locked and the attendant stated they were close. I noticed that people were using their cards, but I vowed to not do that.

As I was leaving, I saw a gas ⛽️ truck and figured I'd come back after Bible study 📖, maybe they were low on gas. Who knows?

After Bible study I passed a Wawa, $2.42 a gallon. Went back to Murphy's because Wawa was too busy and of course the location (Murphy's) was still closed. I headed north to a Wawa closer to my house, gas there was $2.44 per gallon. Two cents more, but why am I so mad about it? It's only two cents, but I'm ticked off all the same.

In other financial news, I'm on track with my two week budget and am preparing for the next three weeks, since pay day is on the 31st.

As you all know, I do my Target runs on Sundays and create my meal plans based on the meat 🍖 I get. This week we had chicken breast wrapped in bacon 🥓 . OMG 😲 it was delicious 😋. Tonight I made hamburgers and tomorrow I'll make something with the chicken breast we have. This passed Sunday, there weren't much mark downs, I hope🤞🏾 this coming Sunday there is.

    You know what is also really good? Putting sage leaves between the chicken and the bacon. Or wrapping it in prosciutto instead of bacon.

    Thanks LR, I'll try that

    That is frustrating about the gas. I swear the gas stations around here have a phone tree when it comes to raising the price because they all raise it to the same price in an hour or so.

    Are you familiar with 'Gas Buddy,' app for your phone which notes lowest and highest price per gallon. Our most convenient outlet secretly [unlisted] discounts price .03 cents a gallon each Wednesday and Sunday. To avoid early AM scurry and/or line-ups, we've made it a habit to get gas returning home when needed. I don't drive more than a block out-of-my way enroute for discounted gas location, easily tracked on the app.
