When Was The Last Time You Put Gas In Your Vehicle ?

I realized last Friday when I went to pay bills I had not been to a gas station in over a month and I didn't even fill it up all the way either. Oh I bet the oil companies love me lol. And I still haven't stopped to put gas in it yet either. Though I will have to soon as soccer season is starting for my kids and then school. So how long have you gone without fueling up?

over a month? are you kidding? you are so lucky. I put gas in my car about twice a week. I have a small car that is good on gas but I work out of town and just cant seem to get away from it.

No I am not kidding. But I also don't work either. So it's much easier for me. But $20 lasts my hubby about a month but his work is only a few miles away so it doesn't take much for him either. Once soccer season starts I will probably be going through at least a tank every week or so

We had to fill up on Friday night, but prior to that, I think it had been at least a month since we put gas in the car. We pretty much only drive to get groceries once a week, though we had a few other trips in the car in that time. Now that my fiance has started working, he drives to work, but overall, we do a lot less driving than we used to.

And I see you live a few hours north of me so I know gas is spendy up there. Well that's 3 of us now that have managed to go a moth with out gasing up. I'd say that's pretty good so far

I live in an urban area so I don't drive very much during the week. In fact, I can even walk to work. I do however travel on the weekends and that is when I use the most gas. I would say I put gas in the car, maybe once evey two week or so, depending on what I am up to and who I am visiting. It's not too bad, but given the fule prices lately I'm pretty glad that I can walk to so many places.

We live on the outskirts of town, but it's a little town so everything is in a few mile radius. I use the most gas during the school year because of the kids activities but I plan all my errands around thier schedules. So that helps

The last time I personally put gas in my vehicle was 6 days ago (8-2), but my husband put gas in it just yesterday. We share this truck and he travels a lot for work. Sometimes only 10 miles down the road, but normally more. And lately he's been traveling 116 miles one way for work. Even though our truck is a 4 cylinder we still have to fill it up constantly. Good thing it isn't a big 'ole gas guzzler or we'd really be in trouble! :P

Well crap! Just when I thought the last time I put gas in my truck was 6 days ago, I remembered shortly after I made my reply that the last time I filled it up was this past Sunday, so it was 3 days ago, not 6. Sorry. I had gone by my last receipt when I posted my response, but had forgotten about Sunday since the machine at the gas station didn't give me a receipt as it was out of paper. And here I was happy that I hadn't gotten gas for my truck in 6 days. D@mn, I knew it was too good to be true. :P LOL

Even little vehicles can seem like gas guzzlers when you have to travel that far. I finally put gas in my jeep friday 8-10 and I got it for $2.61 a gallon. That's pretty good around here

I'm still doing fairly well at that. I fuel up every 2 weeks now. It's more since the girls are back in school.

That is great! If we all could do that, they might lower gas prices and we might be able to afford to buy gas. I just put gas in today but I usually only fill up once a week.

Hi. Wow, the last time you put gas in your car was last month, you must have such an economical car or did you decide to park it up and walk your way around lol... Yesterday we put $80.00 in one car and $40.00 dollars in the other, so our cars stay on or near the full tank mark...

I have a 1993 Jeep Laredo nothing economical about it. Your right though I just didn't go anywhere unless I had to. From a quater of a tank it costs me about $50.00 to fill it

We fill up maybe once a week, maybe. I try to spend our gas wisely and plan each trip out of the house so we only need to make one. I also try to go in the coolest part of the day so we don't have to use the air conditioner as much, that saves on the gas as well.

I don't have to worry about the A/C I disconnected th A/C motor. It was bogging my engine down. That and here we only see a few 90 degree + days durig the summer anyway with little humidity. Generally I have hubby pick up anything we need on his way home from work since he drives right by the grocery store anyway

My hubby works a few citys away so gas is one of our highest bills. I should not spend more on gas for the cars then I do for groceries for the family, but we do. I stay at home with the kids so Im sure I could cut back on my driving. I am trying to do all my errands on the same day each week. If I keep it to one day I think it will make me plan it out a bit more. We are going to see how much this helps the budget.

I generally don't go anywhere unless I absolutely have to. That will end soon with school starting but I plan all my trips as well gas is still fairly expensive here

2 days top for me not to stop at the gas station. But I drive around 80 miles or more daily too. But the prices have dropped a lot recently so it doesn't hurt as bad now filling. I paid $2.64 A GALLON last night for gas. 2 WEEKS AGO IT WAS $2.98 A GALLONG. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

80 miles a day ouch. Gas around here has been hovereing around $2.85 a gallon. But I probably should go fill up pretty soon since the Labor Day weekend is fast approaching.
