People are going crazy at the gas stations. Gas started off at $.88/L this morning, but I was late for a meeting so figured I would get it later. Big lineups headed out to the crop (and let's face it, I was running behind again). At 10:44 tonight I pulled into the gas station and it was insane, I made the mistake of taking a moment to figure out what pump to line up at so that I didn't block the car currently at the pump, and I was swarmed. Cars boxing each other in, total moron driving. I turned around and headed home.

Turns out, gas is $.83/L now. And to drive the crazies more insane, once they run out of regular fuel, the high test is sold at the regular price. Gas stations have actually closed as they are sold out.

Sad thing is I really need gas. I'll pay a buck a litre, just keep the asshats at home.

I have no idea! It would have saved me $12 if I'd filled up, but I so don't have enough patience for that.

Pretty sad that people are going mental for gas at prices they stuck their noses up at last year.

Gas is so expensive!!! I sure am glad that we own a diesel truck...and we are helping our farmers by using vegetable oil to run it =-)
