Palmer Avenue Exxon
This is the worse place ever! They don't understand English and you will have a hard time understand them. They charged me before my inspection was done and told me that it failed because I was missing a stud & lug nuts on my tire. I called around and found out that shouldn't have failed me. They was going to charge me $150.00 for labor and another $50 for parts. I'm sorry but I'm not a fool like they were trying to make me out to be. I got the parts from auto zone for a total of $5.00. I shouldn't have been charged before my inspection, the lady at the counter told me that it's state law that they charge you first. I'm sorry but that's like going into Walmart and paying before you get your items. I told them I know my laws and NO it's not a law. I have been going to this place for awhile but I am sure to tell you now, I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK. I will be sending a letter to the BBB regarding this matter. WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T GO HERE!!

Mobil Lube Express
I had a bad experience with Mobil 1's customer service. I had been taking my trucks/cars to them for oil change/inspection for more than 3 years. During a routine inspection, the owner waved me to the vehicle and explained that the registration sticker and inspection sticker were in the wrong place. I told them they were the only ones to have touched the stickers in years. He told me that "In his shop, he knows more than the customer" and that the sticker problem was "my fault". This aggressive stance took me a off-guard. After again telling him that his shop was the only one to touch the sticker in years, he said "After today, you don't do business here anymore and that no one tells him what to do in his shop." He then assembled the stickers, in the wrong order, and told me to "pay and leave" and then approached me to within 6" as if to physically threaten (doesn't make sense-> he is a rather small man). Perhaps he had a bad day, but I cannot imagine a worse way to treat a customer. I will not do business with them again and recommend that you also find a different service provider.
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
