    Augusta

    Cheaper prices can be found across the river in North Augusta, SC. I went to Greg's Gas Plus on US-1. I can't recommend taking a large vehicle or trailer in here. There's an outside lane for diesel that is the only one that will work. I squeaked the truck into an inside lane. Very tight. Use GasBuddy.com to check current prices.

        Better situation??

        I live in the western part of the state of Georgia and my experience is telling me that its far more economical to fuel up across the border in Alabama where prices are lower. If you can make it across the state line into Alabama you'll most likely find some real savings on fuel and a DOT willing to support the RV community.

        While I'd love to keep my motor fuel taxes in my home state of Georgia , I sense a growing disdain of the RV community by the Georgia Dept of Transportation as witnessed by their continual closing and lack of maintenance of DOT RV dump stations in welcome and rest areas(especially in Columbus GA). Alabama seems far more receptive and supportive of the RV community so I am a bit more eager to spend my motor fuel tax dollars at our neighbors in Alabama saving money and using their great RV facilities.

                One of the first apps I downloaded on the iphone was gas buddy. I save $$ every time by finding the lowest price to where I am.

                  MSN/Gas

                  I use the MSN website, under auto's they have a Gas site and if you put in the city or zip code it will give you p/gal cost at stations and a map so you can find the station.
                  Great for planning the next days RV trip and fuel stops with the ability to locate the stations on a map.
