    The discounts have been pretty good lately. I would say the average was around 30-40 cents. The only draw back is no J’s or pilot’s, which is fine with me but going west you need to plan a little more for TA’s and Petros. Good luck.

    That is the price I paid with my Landstar discount. $1.21 off the pump price. This is the lowest price. I have seen at this TA so far this year. I fuel here at least once a week. The going price for me at the TA Express in Vinton, TX is now selling for $1.15 a gallon after my $1.38 a gallon Landstar discount. The other lowest price I have paid recently is at the Petro in Amarillo at $1.22 a gallon after my $1.21 a gallon Landstar discount. I fuel here at least once a week as well. These 3 truck stops are where I fuel on my weekly roundtrip. It has dropped my fuel costs down to 14.5 cents per mile!

    Yes. The price and amount of discount changes every day. Usually I only see a discount of 75-90 cents a gallon at the 3 truck stops I fuel at frequently. Lately it has been $1.20+ a gallon as the price of oil has plunged recent weeks.

    I stop at Pilot/Flying J a lot for coffee and such, but rarely fuel there due to only getting a flat discount of 25 cents a gallon plus 10 cents a gallon on the Pilot Rewards card. The discounts I have been getting from TA/Petro is too big to pass up!

    When fuel prices are rising, Pilot can be cheaper than TA. It’s not the case now though. My price at Baytown today is $1.17 using Landstar Savings Plus card for approved carriers. Savings plus is .10 at Pilot and .20 at Loves, and cost plus at TA, Speedway and Sapp, but not Petro for some reason.
