Gasoline went up another .08 cents!

Had to drive into town to run several errands.  As I passed by HEB, I was happy to see that gasoline was still $3.31 a gallon.  As I drove by the new Stripes...who usually has the cheapest price in town...noticed their price was $3.39... a difference of .08 cents.



Darn it all, my first reaction was to head back to HEB but I had to go run an important errand for my mother so filling up dad's old car would have to wait. As soon as I got through made a mad dash back to HEB and wouldn't you know it...they had raised their price as well!


How do these people know when  the big three players in town decrease but mostly increase the price of gasoline?  Do they hire people to drive up and down Veterans Boulevard?  If so, I want that job!  Stripes, Walmart and HEB...I am available :D


I turned to look at the Stripes across the street from HEB and they still had not raised their price.  I pulled in and filled up.  I am not lying, I was the second vehicle there and in a matter of seconds all these cars drove in! Is there an app for cheap gas prices in Del Rio?  Does someone post something on Facebook?  Heck, I wouldn't know as I do not own a smartphone or do Facebook.  Just glad that for once I caught a break :-)


We have so many glass jars and glass containers that we decided to take them down to the recycling center. Could not help but notice the wooden pallets they had and that if you asked, they would probably give to you.  I did not get to take a picture of it but when I drove through the back of Tractor and Trailer Supply they had a bunch of pallets sitting next to their dumpster.  It seems a shame to let all those pallets go to waste.

Today was a very windy day with a high of 83 degrees.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  2. I see diesel is $3.69. My RV holds a hundred gallons, so it would cost almost four hundred bucks to fill it up if it were empty. Awhile back, I had to fill it up with $4.10 per gallon diesel. That was a four hundred dollar fill-up!!!

    1. That is one, among many reasons why I will never own an RV...one has to have deep pockets to fuel it and to maintain it...that pretty much leaves me out :-(

  3. Gassbuddy.com which also offers an app for your phone. I use the website frequently to plan where I will fill up when moving from one camp to the next.

    1. I was just kidding Ed...but I knew there had to be an app somewhere. If you had seen the cars driving in like mad...myself included, you would have thought the same thing.

      Went to check out Gassbuddy.com but it is hard to navigate. Put in my zip code did not get a thing. When I clicked on see ads, it took me to Yahoo autos and the ad to the local Ford dealer!

    2. I don't think I have ever had that problem. But, I rarely know what the ZIP code is for the location that I'm interested in so I enter the city and state. If you do that ALWAYS enter it in this format Del Rio, TX (the comma is VERY important).
      I never click ads so I have nothing to say about where they might take you.

    3. I used the format you suggested and it did not give me any gasoline prices just real estate, lodging and flights...even though we don't even have an airline that flies into town anymore.

  4. I'm with Trouble....10 cents a gallon increase don't make enough difference to worry bout. Although, when I fill up "da house" I buy up bout 40 gallons at a time.....$4 difference. I would burn that much in gas look'n for a better deal.
