Vegas Teacher Posted April 26, 2018 Report Share Posted April 26, 2018 Well I have an app called Truckers path where I can check the price of fuel at truck stops. I also call to verify is it correct. So I needed some fuel and was getting ready to drive out to the Valley of fire where the price is usually a quarter cheaper per gallon, before going there I had to run some errands and pick up a retired policeman friend of mine. So on my way to Volvo / Mac TEC I drove past a Murphy's gas station and diesel was 3.05 a gallon. I looked at truckers path and it was 3.45 at Love's and 3.25 at a gas station about 15 miles north of town on I-15 out of Vegas. I called and confirmed prices. I went on to TEC and bought two new cab air bags, cab shocks and the air controller unit, and the little arm that keeps popping off, plus new nuts and bolts for them. My truck has a lot of rust, it did east coast runs in snow and rain when it was in service. 350.00 later I walked out of TEC. So I drove back to Murphy's and had my buddy get out and make sure the Semi would fit under the canopy, the height was not posted on it. We fit fine, now the looks on the faces of the other people getting gas was priceless but for the cost per gallon I was happy to put up with it. Many asked how many gallons I held and quite a few were pretty nice. One person at the pump on the other side kept looking at me and I finally said well I thought I would get a few hundred gallons how are you doing today. (yep that was a run on sentence, but I teach science not English.) Anyway if anybody else has a Murphy Gas station in there town it is worth looking into...... Happy almost Friday!
