As Gas Prices Rise, Consumers Find Deals In Alternative Fuel
A couple times a week, Brittany Garcia fills up her SUV at Pearson Fuel in City Heights. “It saves me like, I’d say $100 a week. It saves me a lot,” said Brittany Garcia, who commutes to the gas station from National City. Garcia, a mother of four, is not buying regular gasoline. She’s in the market for E85, made up of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gas. The corn-­based fuel was selling last week for $1.89 — nearly 50 cents cheaper than regular unleaded. She said she only recently discovered she had a flex-­fuel vehicle capable of using the biofuel. “But it’s hard because a lot of gas stations don’t have it,” Garcia said.
