Default Driving across the border for cheaper fuel?

Would you do it?

Is it worth it?

What are your thoughts?

Driving across the border for cheaper gas

I don't see how this would be saving... if you're trying to save money?

I say thumbs down. I don't think it's worth the time one would waste. Maybe for those in close to the board that are located in California or Texas but even if I was I wouldn't cross the boarder to fill up. My humble opinion.

I live south of the boarder so it is desirable for me to fuel in Mexico. Last week I paid over $4.20 per gallon in California, and $3.17 to fill my tank in Mexico. I have never had a problem with diesel fuel in Mexico, and the savings is significant.

We are headed to Yuma at the end of the month and will most likely get into Mexico to fill up.
