So if I filled up with higher priced gas every time, over the 5 years I rode I'd have spent $36 more than I would have had I hunted down the cheapest gas available.
Now that I'm commuting in my truck, I'm a little more concerned about the price, but not as much as some. I put between 12 & 15 gallons in each fillup, and the fillups happen anywhere from 7 to 10 days apart. If there are two stations across the street from each other, and the price difference is 5¢/gallon, but the cheaper station is inconvenient to get to while the more expensive one is easy to get to, I'll pay the extra price for the convenience.
So I agree with your sentiment.
