Gas Up Before the Airport
Why does it seem that there are never any gas stations near the airport and if there are, they are closed or out of gas? Last month in Calgary, I had to return a rental car but couldn’t find a gas station anywhere nearby! But luckily I had left plenty of time to return my car before my flight. My advice is to do the same and from now on, I plan to get gas well before the airport so I can avoid the frustration of finding an open gas station, waiting in long lines or paying high prices.
For a great way to map and compare gas prices in the area, check out my tip on GasBuddy.
