HEADS UP!!

The Speedway station on Burnside changed the way they display price and the way they charge.

The top number used to be the price for regular, the bottom one was for diesel.

Now, the top number is for CASH only, the bottom is for credit.

This is the first time I noticed ANY local station charging 10 cents extra for credit card.

I was lured in because the price was so cheap. Until I noticed I was being charged 2.13 instead of the advertised 2.03. The reason this is so dishonest is because the Sunoco station is advertising 2.11. The station is empty. Speedway says 2.03. It was packed. But in reality, when using a credit card, Sunoco is cheaper!

Why not just use Conoco at corner of peninsula and Rockaway and save 10 to 25 cents per gallon with their app? (used to be 15 to 25 cents).

I couldn't get the app to work when I tried  :(
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Are there any local places or groups where I can buy meat in larger quantities at a discount? I heard that some people get together and will place a large order at bulk prices. Does anyone have experience with this?

I'm assuming that the laptop has an internal battery?
