Gas stations on the way to WDW...

We are 79 days away from heading back "home" to WDW!!! I'm planning on buying gas cards from my son's school to keep us on budget (and buying them from the school helps keep the tuition from going up too much..). Is there information out there on the most prominent gas stations on the way and around Disney? We are coming from Alabama...traveling down hwy 231, I-10 and I-75. I've checked Mapquest and it gave me 8...very scattered. I would like a better sample if possible.

We use mostly Pilot stations on I-75. I think the cheapest ones right around Disney are BPs, but I'm not sure.

the gas stations on disney property are hess, and they're usually the same price, or a penny or two cheaper than the stations off property.

we live in alabama too, but we're NE, so we take I-20 to atlanta, then the bypass to I-75, and straight on to the turnpike.

the last time we went to wdw, i made a list of love's and pilot stations in my smartphone (which i call a dumbphone) as we were driving back home. DH prefers them because their gas is usually slightly cheaper than the big brand stations (exxon, shell, bp, etc.), but gives the same mileage. here's what i have, in order, from wdw to the alabama state line on I-20:
*Florida*
Pilot - Exit 329
Pilot - Exit 341
Love's - Exit 358
Love's - Exit 451
*Georgia*
Pilot - Exit 11
Love's - Exit 59
Pilot - Exit 101
Pilot - Exit 109
Pilot - Exit 146
Love's - Exit 201

The best place to get gas while at disney is from the walmart on Vineland Rd. You get a gift card from the store and you get the cash discount at the pump. You can get the gift card with a credit card. The Hess stations on property are actually not too bad as well.

I'm going to start stocking up on shell gas cards from Kroger so I can get the fuel points!
