Is it me or are gas prices going back up here in Abilene? I was just out getting my camouflaged Dodge diesel 3/4-ton truck refueled, only to discover that diesel fuel prices are up to nearly $3 dollars. I drove from Sam's Club on the southside of town to United Supermarket on Ambler Ave looking for a good deal.

Here's How I Got $1.00 Off Per Gallon On Fuel

Frustrated, I mentioned to my wife that I needed to find a "good deal" on fuel for my truck because it's got a 40-gallon tank and at $3 bucks a gallon that's $120.00. She reminded me that she's got this rewards thing with United Market Street and she can get as much as a dollar off per gallon up to 25 gallons. Thank God for smart wives.
