I wish I could….

…remember the name of this cpmany that tried this bid for gas thing way back when I was in college.  Cyndi and I were married (so I’m sure it was after 1999).  The way it worked was you signed up for an account, then bid for x number of gal. of gas at x price.  If you won, you could go pump that many gallons of gas at the station, swipe your card with them (I think), and go.  I forget how you got the difference back.  And I remember you were hit with a penalty if you went over your gal. amount by a certain amount.  We did it 2 or 3 times before the service went kaput like so many other things did with the bubble burst.  Anway, if you want to pay to try and hedge your gas prices, check out this site:
