Buy As Much Gas As You Want At Cheap Prices

Yes, you're tired of paying high gas prices, but it's little consolation that our European counterparts pay in excess of $7.00 per gallon.  They're used to it.  We're not.

There's seemingly no way to beat high gas prices.  Sure, there's, which tells you where the current lowest price is near your zip code, but that's just shaving something in the neighborhood of pennies from the current price.  Boycotts of Exxon Mobil haven't worked because too many people drive their cars and need gas to run them.

Alternative fuels are still a long way away, and hybrids are only a small percentage of the total number of cars on the road.  So what's the solution?

Well, you could drive on over to a First Fuel Banks gas station in St. Cloud, Minnesota.  Compared to the price for gas that I paid just today, you could save over $0.70 a gallon - about a 20% savings if you bought their gas.  And you can buy as much gas as you want at that price.  The most sold so far at any one time is $400,000.  That's a lot of gallons of gas.  The idea is to bank your savings now, and use the fuel in the future when you need it, and at a savings over future prices. 

You become a futures trader in the most real way possible. 

The only problem:  you're here, and they're there.  Even saving 70 cents a gallon, that's a long way to drive just to fuel up.  If you don't live near St. Cloud, your only hope is that your local gas stations pick up on this idea and start the same program.  If you want to put your favorite gas station owner in touch with First Fuel Banks, here's how:  First Fuel Banks Main Office, 625 SE Lincoln Avenue, St. Cloud, MN 56304, telephone number 320-252-2265, fax number 320-252-0653, email:

And no, MIPTC didn't get any gas for this plug.  Just you as a satisfied reader.
