Want to lock-in on current gas prices before they rise even further? Well, you could buy a Chrysler, or you could sign up for a MyGallons account. The new service works like a debit account for gas, where users pre-purchase gallons at a current price, assuming it'll go up from there. Of course, you've got to pay a $29.95 annual membership fee — and a $15 overdraft fee if you go over your prepaid balance, so it may not be worth it for some people. But, with 2,000 current members, and 200,000 gas stations across the country said to be participating, there are evidently quite a few people interested in the idea.
