I have to say that I was excited to have Price Chopper partner with Sunoco Gas in providing discounts on gas when using your Price Chopper Advantage Card. This was definitely a reward and an incentive to do more shopping at Price Chopper rather than going all the way to Plattsburgh. With every $50 you spend, Price Chopper gives you 10 cents off a gallon! You can let your "gas cents-off" accumulate for 90 days or so.
Last night the cashier informed me that I had 50 cents off a gallon! Great! Here's the catch, the Sunoco in Lake Placid has been closed for a week or so.
If I were headed to Saranac Lake (out of my way), it would be no problem and I could fuel up in Ray Brook. There is a Sunoco station in Wilmington on the way home to Jay, but for some reason they don't take the Advantage Card there.
I think Sunoco in Lake Placid timed their closing with gas prices going down. Up the street it was only $3.35, very close to my 50 cents off that I would have gotten with the LP Sunoco price of $3.83 two weeks ago. If they were open now at $3.35, my gas would only cost me $2.85! Unheard of right? I think it is all just one big conspiracy.
