Tips To Make Your Trips To The Pumps Less Painful

Despite the emails that have been circulating for years now, calling for boycotts on one particular gas company or another to force the gas prices back down – it’s just not going to happen.

I’m not saying it couldn’t happen I just think it would take a lot more organizing than forwarding an email to everyone in your email box. Won’t work.

So if the gas pump blues have you down – here’s a trick to help make your pumping less painful.

Don’t buy your gas by the liter (or the gallon) buy it by the dollar – US$ or CDN$ – doesn’t matter.

Never, ever fill your tank, just pick a dollar value and always buy that amount whether its $20 or $50. Just pick a value that won’t make you cringe too much when you pull it out of your wallet.

That way the cost of your gas never goes up. $30 of gas (if that’s the amount you have chosen) will always cost you $30 each and every time you go to the pumps.

Forget the numbers on the sign posted at your pumps. Don’t ever look at them again, because they will no longer have any meaning to you.

Sure you may have to go to the pumps more often but you’ll be oblivious to the pain. People will notice that filling a tank of gas costs more each time the price goes up, but who keeps track of often you have to stop to buy gas?

This method won’t actually cost you any less for your gas, but it will ease the pain over something you can’t do anything about anyway.

The adage “Ignorance is bliss” rings true.
