There's a deal with a local supermarket that gives you credit for buying grub there toward a price cut in gas.

Mrs Pic got curious and asked me to fill up and see what the deal was.

Swiped her card at the pump, and Lo and behold! $1.29/ gallon.

You can bet your ass I filled up!

Mike, when you get a chance over the next coupla days, swing by. I'm siding the house.


ETA he's right. We both suck. Nothing like pissing people off with your good luck.

We have the same deal with a local supermarket chain. If you compare prices to their competitors, it won't take long to see that you pay full price+ for that gasoline on the other end. But, it's a deceptively good feeling to pay less than $1.00/gallon for gasoline like I did on one fill up back in August.

When it was a dollar a gallon it was basically

.25 to get it out of the ground
.25 to refine it and get it to market.
.25 taxes
.25 profit

I remember .88 a gallon, but that was in 1999, when I got my drivers license.

Back then, I was driving a 85 Monte Carlo with a 400 Sm Block. When I wasnt filling up the tank at 80 cents a gallon I was putting new rears on it.

Spent $179 at the gas station yesterday. Filled the suburban and my pick up truck.
Link Posted: 9/23/2005 4:52:26 AM EDT
Paid $2.429 yesterday but that was probably the last gas station in my area to have that price. The others have already raised their prices to around $2.589. There were lines two to three cars deep and you could already see people losing their tempers as they tried jockying for open pumps.
