Gas And Travel Food At Costco

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 267 Posts

Recently, my family took a vacation to Los Angeles, CA. As there were 4 of us, it made more financial sense to drive instead of flying, even at $5.00 a gallon. We tried to cut costs wherever possible. We packed snacks and drinks for the trip, but knew we would have to buy some meals on the the two day trip.


We were concerned about the cost of gas, knowing that many stations hike up the prices right off the freeway. At home, we tend to purchase our gas at Costco because it is generally the lowest price in our area. We researched which Costco stores on I-5 sell gas and planned to fill up there whenever possible. We also were able to stop and get an inexpensive lunch of hot dogs or pizza while we were there. It saved us time and money.

Costco is all across the U.S and in other countries as well, so this should be a good option for many people. With the price of gas around $4.00, every little bit helps.
