wow. i would never have ...

wow. i would never have even thought about the old time pumps. i never realized they didnt have enough numbers to support the rise in prices.

i paid 4.08 this morning for gas. i have a little chevy aveo. i was nearly on E. i paid $36.72 for 8.981 gallons of gas . *cries*

DAMN GIRL!!! that's ...

DAMN GIRL!!! that's bad!
it's about 3.50 here, about 80.00 for me to fill up!

Our gas in Indianapolis is ...

Our gas in Indianapolis is at $4.09 a gallon (for the cheap stuff). So any of you planning on coming for the 500 race here in a couple of weeks, plan to have deep pockets for the gas!

I don't see the gas prices ...

I don't see the gas prices EVER coming down simply because...if people are gonna pay the high prices...they're gonna continue to charge them...WHY? Because they can!!

I was watching a newsclip tonight on our local news regarding how to get the most out of your gas dollar. One of the things they said was that a vehicle will get less gas mileage with a full tank since the poundage that a full tank weighs causes the vehicle to work harder to get up to speed...and that a vehicle will get better gas mileage if you only fill it up halfway.

They used a truck as an example. They said that filling up the tank fully with gas adds an extra 100# of weight to the vehicle..thus causing the vehicle to work harder to get up to speed..

I always fill up my tank..to avoid paying higher prices later on..but the newsclip said that you actually will get better gas mileage if you fill up more..and have less weight that your vehicle has to carry around..thus creating better gas mileage.

Does anyone agree...disagree? I thought it was a bag of crap at first..but if you think about it...maybe........

hmmm. thats an unusual ...

hmmm. thats an unusual method. i dont really have an opinion on that specifically. all i know is i will continue to fill my tank to full each time i go to the gas station.

oh, and that 4.08 for gas i paid 2 days ago....they raised it to 4.14 today!! YIKES!!
