Shane,
Great article! Thanks for sharing. One unique tidbit is they don’t have signage on the property with their fuel prices but rest assured its the lowest in the area.

GasBuddy is a phone app that helps you find gas or diesel It will show you the latest prices so you can be a knowledgeable shopper.

Very easy to use and free. Works good


I really like Buc-ees. They are clean and lots of pumps, toilets Etc.
The article states, No visible Tattoos, crazy colored hair, etc. After reading that part, I think I like it even more.

I also like not having to deal with Truckers. Overall, they have got to be some of the more nasty members of our society. I appreciate the fact that they are out working and trying to pay taxes and make a living, but the filth just makes me angry. Peeing in a plastic bottle and then throwing it out the window and other similar acts is just disgusting.


Rant OVER!!!!

Max.

Yep !!! I wrote it and I stand by it !!

If you haven't noticed all those plastic bottles full of yellow liquid laying on the side of the freeway, then you haven't been paying attention.

I've driven a truck when I was younger. I have a brother who owns several and I buy my fuel at truck stops, and I've seen some awful things.

They are a vital part of society and I'm not trying to disparage the profession. I just wish they would take a little more effort to be civil and a little more aware of the image of the profession.

A few bad apples can spoil the whole basket certainly applies here !!!

Max
