Driving out of your way for a deal is usually worth it
I often hear frugal "experts" telling their listeners and readers not to drive out of their way to shop where a deal is. They claim that it isn't worth it. But I never hear them back up their claim with any facts. So I did the math and must say that driving out of your way is usually worth it. If you get 20 MPG, you can do 20 miles of shopping for $3 in gas. That is alot of driving/shopping for $3. And I am sure you will save more than $3 on the items you are buying. Most of us will drive less than 20 miles and save more than $3.
