It wasn’t too long ago that I had this goal going on inside myself to never let the gas pump click over to $50 when filling up my tank. I’m not sure when I finally gave in. But last week I filled my tank and did not pay attention, just waited to hear the click of the overfill- preventer-thingy in the gas nozzle. When it clicked, I looked up and the meter said $70. I thought it would be worthwhile to document the date that it happened so that I can look back on this blog 20 years from now and remember that time when gas prices soared over $4/gal. This picture sums up my feelings.
