Where Do You Fill Up In Livermore When Gas Prices Shoot Up?

Pump prices in the East Bay have risen 58 cents per gallon the past month. Where do you fill up?

Now that gasoline has jumped more than a half dollar a gallon, is there a station you've found in the Livermore area that isn't as expensive as the others?

Let us know in the comments. Your neighbors will appreciate it.

The commute page on Livermore Patch shows an array of prices around town. A cheap price can be difficult to find.

In California, gasoline prices have risen 57 cents per gallon the past month to an average of $4.22 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

In the East Bay, gas prices have increased 58 cents the past month to $4.15 for a gallon of unleaded regular. That price is up 16 cents in the past week.

Why have gasoline prices risen so sharply? Is it seasonal? Is it supply and demand? Is it manufactured? Here's one blogger's opinion. Give us your thoughts in the comments section.

Usually quick stop or gas and shop because they tend to be the cheapest. I don't know why anyone goes to arco on vasco because they don't let you use credit and they charge for debit so unless you have cash go to quick stop or the gas and shop across

We used to get gas at Costco since they usually are the cheapest or close to it. Once I found out that our cashback doesn't apply to gas we switched to Quick Stop on Vasco since they take credit cards without a fee and we get 2% cash back on our credit card. That station is generally near the least expensive as well.

Rotten Robbie on East always has low prices and a great convenience store too.

Safeway, the prices are generally fairly low, and often get a discount from the Safeway card.

... Commenters, How would you like it if you went to your place for cheap gas, and Every time you went there to fill up, it was crowded? Besides, no on can really Verify that their cheap gas place is THE cheap gas place, because the Reality is that these are cyclical and change Over time. So Now you know. ...And besides, with an older car like mine, that becomes ever more finicky about the gasoline I put in and the chemicals along with it to keep the fuel injectors and valves clean, I usually find that "cheap gas" does not have "cheap" consequences, especially starting the car up and finding all the deposits in that gas making my valves stick, forcing me to burn some oil out the exhaust while the car warms up, which probably doesn't make my neighbors happy because of that.

I use Diesel, so Safeway is the cheapest for me. A good resource for finding gas whether here in Livermore or abroad is to use GASBUDDy.COM They even have a trip calculator. Worth checking out.

For my cars, I use Rottin Robbie. Prices are usually competitive, its easy to get in and out, and it is close to my house. For my truck (big tank), I usually go to Safeway and use the cents-off credits that I have "earned" by buying groceries at the store. I usually get 20-40 cents off per gallon, which makes a difference. Problem with Safeway is that it is crowded most of the time. Use Costco only when going shopping at the store (once every 45 days or so).
