High Gas Prices= Less Bargain Shopping?

I was debating this today. Is it worth it to drive around for the latest deals, if the high gas prices negate the savings? I wanted to visit a few different stores today, but they were in different towns and I figured, it's not worth the gas to be driving around so much. So, I went to Kohl's and Costco and that's it. There are many theories why gas prices keep climbing, I wish I knew which one was the truth! To check gas prices in your area, go to GasBuddy.com . Also, if you are a Giant Eagle shopper, be sure to look into the Fuel Perks program. We saved over $13 this past weekend on gas, paying $1.70 a gallon!

Meijer also has a new offer. Spend $50+ on select products and receive a $5 coupon for free gasoline fill-up! Plus earn Fuel Rewards when you buy products, they'll be marked with the Fuel Rewards logo.

Another way to get around the high gas prices, but still find good deals is online! Be sure to come back here everyday for the latest!

Here's the updates for today:

Meijer deal: This week Pepsi products are 4/$10.00 and receive the 5th 12 pack free at the register. You will receive a $5 mail-in rebate at the register and spend $10.00+ on 12 packs and receive $10 off denim jeans priced $10+. Ends 8/27/05. Combine with coupons for more savings too! This is a good way to score free jeans and Pepsi!
