One good thing about the bad economy...

...if there's any silver lining, that is...

Around here at one of the BP gas stations, regular gas put up a "2" in front of the gas prices. Technically less than 3.00 per gallon at 2.999. Premium is $3.319

Which is great for the truck. Funny how people whined and cried when it hit 2.00 per gallon a while back. Now we're HAPPY if it gets below 3.00.

See attached gas buddy map for proof. Obviously don't know how long it'll last, but we should take it while we can and feel lucky it isn't the other way around.
