If I did not have children I needed to cart around, I would absolutely rock a scooter. You know, like a super cool Vespa that gets 100 miles to the gallon or something. For a while, I investigated the possibility of a baby-friendly sidecar but it turns out they just don’t make them.
So, the next best thing if I want to save at the pump is to look for “sales” on gas. Does it ever really go on sale? The answer is no. And I refuse to get a gas card because I loathe credit cards. But this deal from ExxonMobil seems to be a happy medium.
If you currently hold a Speedpass (you know, that little wand thing that stays on your keychain and just debits your checking account?) and you register it, you’ll receive a $0.15/gallon rebate for the next 60 days or 100 gallons – whichever comes first.
Not a bad deal considering you’re not paying interest and you’re buying the stuff anyway.
