Cheaper Gas in Lincoln?

September 27, 2007 at 1:55pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I’m skeptical, but it’s possible that the arrival of gas from Sam’s Club could lead to lower gas prices throughout Lincoln. Only Sam’s Club members would be able to purchase the gas. I have a hard time seeing the effects ripple much beyond the North 27th Street corridor. But hey, if my local stations at 48th and Highway 2 want to drop their prices because of pressure from 6 pumps at 27th and Superior, I’m certainly not going to complain.

“The station will be available for use only by Sam

I am a Sam’s Club member, and I will go there for gas if 1) The gas is discounted enough to make the drive up there worth it, 2) The gas is discounted enough to make the aggravation of going to Sam’s Club worth it.

But if the presence of cheaper gas there brings the gas down everywhere else, then I will be happy.

 

Those North Lincolnites—they get everything!!!!!

the place used to be CameraEmporium.com, but i did a google search and couldn’t find it. however, i found a site that looks exactly like the one mentioned above, and the prices are similar. im thinking it’s the same site, just a different name:

http://www.TheCameraProfessionals.com

they have the best deals around Nov-Jan, or at least that’s when the deals were awesome when i was going to make my next investment.

Yes, Dave K, life IS better on the North Side, as long as you don’t need medical attention or a trip to Lowe’s.

I am excited by this I live less than ten minutes from Sam’s ans I am already a member I will get gas there often.  Take That South Sider!!!!  smile

we are thinking of investing in a sams club membership, but I doubt I would buy gas from them.  The local ustop is just too convenient.

Anybody know of any secret ways to get a cheaper membership?  I need a 5 gallon bucket of pigs feet for a little experiment.

I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know.

I lied. I want to know.

Smoked pigs feet with a honey mustard sauce?

I have always envisioned owing a pub and having a wall of pickled products.  Kind of like on Ladies Man.  And folks would get a punch card, and once they eat one of every pickled item they would get a free shirt.

Ya see I just want to enjoy watching people eat unsavory things for a crappy T-shirt.

Dave, Jake was responding cross website to a Q asked by Mr. T

But I really could use some Sam’s club stuffis.  I am not a typical liberal.  I love walmart for the deals and visual entertainment. 

Once again the underpants gnomes have shown us the benefits of big cooperations.

I love that I hardly ever have to buy gas.  And I really do not care much about gas prices.  Plus I would feel bad if the CEO of a big oil co had to settle for a sterling silver faucet in his 37th bathroom instead of the solid gold one.

Dave K September 27, 2007 at 4:26pm

I gotcha.  I thought I had seen the name before.

Mr. T September 27, 2007 at 5:13pm

Thanks Jake! Leaning towards the Canon XTi…

jake rhymes with cake September 27, 2007 at 7:38pm

my uncle just bought the Canon XTi a couple months ago, and he’s already won several photography contests ... he’s never owned a camera, or ever been interested in photography until he saw some of the stuff i could do with my camera.

the camera is amazing. i, myself, am a NIKON fan, but i Canon makes a hellova product as well (you can’t get a Nikor lense w/ a Canon though) wink

ABOUT THE POST…

if Sam’s Club gets gas, then i’ll get a membership. i’ve needed another reason other than being able to buy a bucket of eggrolls and cream puffs ... gas would definitely rope me in, being that im only two miles from Sam’s on 27th.

Mr. T September 27, 2007 at 8:01pm

Jake - That sounds encouraging. If not the XTi than the XT (just because I am a little strapped for cash now). Either way, I’ve heard great things about both.

foxspit September 27, 2007 at 9:09pm

We use a Canon XTI at work and I love it!

It’s not Nikon, mind you, but it’s a real nice camera. Very intuitive.
