Stop taxing us to death!!! Cut your damn spending!!!
Consider yourself lucky at only .08, as the Gov here in Mich is proposing a .45 per gallon increase to fix our roads, and also, our auto insurance rates one of the top three highest in the nation, are going to take a jump higher.

Because cars get better mileage now state here wants to switch to a different system like charge per mile. This would also catch alternative fueled vehicles like electric, propane, or natural gas.

This has been brought up in the past and is something I can see happening.
It is for this reason that I keep a 1989 Ford Festiva around. 50MPG and has a speedometer CABLE..that can easily be disconnected.

The grocery store fuel rewards cards can be a great idea IF you are not getting ripped off on the prices of the groceries. If paying more for the groceries to save less on a fillup then not such a great idea.

I split my grocery shopping between Kroger and walmart and regularly compare prices at each.

Many times our grocery will offer bonus fuel points on the receipt for doing an online survey that takes only a few minutes. I get the majority of my fuel 'points' that way vs actually buying a large volume of groceries from them.

Our grocery fuel points here are also limited to a single use of up to 35 gallons. My trucks holds 25 gallons and I make sure that if I am redeeming a lot of points that I have a few 5 gallon gas cans in the back to make sure I get the full 35 gallons of discounted fuel.
