Which brand of gas do you use?

With gas prices $4.00+, I was wondering which brand of gas do most people use. Do you use national brands (Chevron, Shell, 76, etc) or national discount brand (ARCO, etc) or local discount brand?

I've usually use Chevron gas because that's the most common national brand in Las Vegas, but I was thinking about using discount brand of gas. Price difference between the national brands and discount brands can differ by more than $0.10-$0.15 per gallon in Las Vegas.

I was told that the difference between the national and discount brands are minor and using the discount brands is okay. Any feedback would be appreciated.

You may find it interesting as the truth will be told about the different gasoline grades and how the public is being mislead by the oil companies.
