    Question Gas in Buena Vista.

    Gas prices seem to have come down a bit in BV since y'all did some scouting up there, but I was wondering. You think it might be possible to get a gas station up in BV to sponsor us and give a discount, if we steered all the Jeep's to that station during our 3 days there? I know it wouldnt be a big discount, but just throwing an idea out there.

    that is actually an awesome idea, because people don't just get gas. They grab other stuff like drinks, snacks, tobacco. I would guess that the markup / profit on those items is more than gas. It seems like if you could sell them on the extras people may buy, then one of the stations would bite.

    Hmmm, that is actually a great idea. I'll see what I can figure out with the two stations right by the KOA.

    Sven, were you able to make the calls? If you need me to do it, I can. Just let me know.

    Crap, not yet. Work has had me swamped. I tried to find a email for one of the stations, but couldn't. If you want send me your email addy and I'll get you the sponsor ship letter if they are interested.

    I got in contact with Cindy of Gunsmoke Truck Stop, and am waiting a call back. Hopefully I will have some good news soon.

    Well, Cindy called back with some good news. They are willing to give us a 5 cent/gallon discount on gas. The only stipulation is that for every gas purchase you would have to pay inside so they could apply the discount. Gunsmoke truck stop is the closest gas station to the KOA. I know the discount is not much but is better than nothing.
