Portuguese living close to the border go regularly to Spain to fill their tanks. The differences in price are very big, and do compensate the extra kilometers needed to refuel.
Even those who travel abroad can't cross the border back to Portugal without a stop to fill, but I think that the other traditional commerce is decreasing.

In the "good old days" Ayamonte was famous among the Portuguese for selling seafood at a very cheap price. We Portuguese are better than Spanish cooking seafood, so many people bought there to cook at home. The prices normalised, and today the visitors prefer to eat in location just to taste the different tastes.
Commerce is not so strong anymore, but buying abroad keeps being a temptation.
