Gas money...

December 13th, 2008 at 05:46 am

Ok so here's my tiny dilemma...

My current amount of gas money in my wallet is $35.

I'm not quite ready to fill again but might before the weekend is out. I always fill it at around half which is at most 10 gallons but usually more like 8.

Monday is when I pull the next $40 out of my account for the next two weeks gas budget.

The last time I checked, regular was at $1.659 so I should really have no trouble filling (when I do) twice on what I already have in my wallet.

I was reading an article about how some people deal with the lower gas prices, knowing that it's going to go back up, by basically pretending it's still $4 a gallon and stowing away the difference for later when it does go back up.

So part of me was thinking perhaps I should do something like that too, pull out the $40 on Monday and stash whatever is currently in my wallet aside for when it goes back up.

But the other part of me is thinking, why not just take that $40 and pay it as extra on something.

Any thoughts?

    Gas here is about 1.89, I always fill up at a little less than half...just because. I figure no matter what gas is needed so go ahead and fill up, but if you don't need the gas and can hold off then pay a bill that's due

    It couldn't hurt to set a little aside for gas, especially if the higher gas prices made things tight for you before. So if you want to set aside the funds and wait, that would be fine. Or if you want to fill up now, set Monday's gas money aside instead.

    Depends on your budget. I would just pay on something else and suck it up when gas goes back up, but that's just me.

    Actually, I have a very little idea of how these prices come about, but I always try to find cheap gas prices near my house!
