The Sunday Paper is selling $50 gas cards for $25. I don't have to tell you that that's the business. At $4/gallon it costs me $80 to fill my tank. I can't tell you the last time I had a full tank of gas. (Damn you big oil!!!)

Of course there is a catch. You have to be one of the first people to log on with they go on sale every morning at 10. They sell them until they're gone and they're pretty much gone before 10:30. I logged on this morning at 9:59 and the site was DRAGGING. I'm surprised the server didn't crash with all of the traffic. I know The Sunday Paper has a huge circulation and anybody with a vehicle likes the idea of cheap gas. So when I got on and saw that the site was moving slowly I figured I wasn't going to be able to get one. But the page finally loaded and I was able to get a card. Yeaaaa!!

There is a limit of of one card per person per day. So if you want to be down, you need to be sitting in front of your computer before 10 and be ready to hit refresh at the right moment.

The site is and I would recommend setting up a username prior to trying to get a gas card. It will save you a step which will save you some time which will (hopefully) increase your chances of getting some cheap gas.

I know I will be right back on the site tomorrow trying to get another card. Hey, times is hard on the boulevard and I need petrol.
