Nationwide, gas prices have been dropping as we get close to Labor Day. The gas prices list above, courtesy of Automotive.com, can help you find the cheapest one near your home, or along whatever route you're driving this weekend.
If you're leaving from San Carlos, it looks like your best option is the Shell station at 1098 El Camino Real, where as of Friday morning, regular was priced at $3.83 per gallon. But if you want a real bargain, try the Shell at 582 Woodside Rd. in Redwood City, where the same gas is $3.55 per gallon.
