It all depend on the gas station and the prices of the the gas.  Some are so much higher than others.

Depends on what they sell sure gas price does help get people in the place but if you ask any gas station owner they really don't make a thing on gas just the stuff sold inside the gas station. So many claim so many things idk what to believe. I do like to go to archo/ampm stations they do provide a lot more then just gas. Chevron and shell do to just not as much

Probably not...it's all pretty much the same stuff, just branded differently and from various locations

I agree with ktheodos. There is no difference between the brands of gasoline. There is probably a small difference between the grades, though.

That is a good question but I think they are all about the same. I do know that one time I did gas from some old ball gas station and the gas seemed to burn pretty fast. Maybe it was just a bad barrel. :-\

They are all the same. I do hear stories that some people say it doesn't run in their car. Many others

Any differences are minimal at best.

Interesting topic. I'm no gas expert, but I think there is a difference in the quality. From what I heard is that cheaper stuff is not as pure as the more expensive stuff and it (the cheapie) lives a lot more gunk in your gas tank.

   Gas stations are not what they used to be. I remember the era of attendants waiting to help you out with courtesy. Now, you are lucky if you find one with full service because most of them are self-service.

Not really in my opinion, I think they are the same... I think some people will argue about the quality of gas but nothing big.... Warehouse stores like Costco and Sam's Club got the best deals for gasoline.... I see lines/heavy traffic due to the price compared to others

No.  For me the best gas station is the one with the cheapest gas.

All gas brands sell different types of gas some stations even trick you into spending more cash on a cheap oil that won't even last a week.
