The Shell station at Greenspring Shopping Center is open again.
New gasoline pumps are operating at the Shell Station on Smith Avenue in the Greenspring area. The station, which is the sole station in the neighborhood, is open again after about a month of renovations. It's located at 2859 Smith Ave., and also offers a service bay. The site also sports a new, digital sign. What do you think of the renovations at Shell, and how about those prices in the photo taken Friday?

We drove Reisterstown Road through Pikesville and south across the Baltimore City line to find the cheapest gasoline prices.
In need of another fill-up without breaking the bank? At Patch, we did the search for you. And again, we found that, generally, the further south you drive on Reisterstown Road, away from I-695, the cheaper the gasoline tends to be. The Winners: The cheapest gas Wednesday afternoon was found just across the Baltimore City line at the BP station, located at 4101 Patterson Ave. at Reisterstown Road, where regular gasoline was $3.51 per gallon. The silver grade was $3.69 and ultimate was $3.75. Gulf, located at 6315 Reisterstown Road, shared the same low price for regular gasoline at $3.51 per gallon, but its plus and premium grade prices were higher at $3.71 and $3.81, respectively. The Runner-Up: We found the next-best deal at BP, located …

We drove Reisterstown Road through Pikesville and north across Owings Mills Boulevard to find the cheapest gasoline.
Rather than make our usual trek up and down Reisterstown Road solely in Pikesville, we decided to do an experiment to find out if gasoline prices are cheaper further north in Owings Mills.
