Adam's Gas Price Roundup

Posted by Adam54 on Monday, March 7, 2011

I figured this was worthy of it's own thread, which I assume will be hijacked in due course. Post your local gas price, and if nothing else this'll be fun to look back at in a few months and say "Wow, $3.50. Those were the days."

I saw a range between $3.54 and $3.69 today. I'm assuming by the end of the week that will be a range of $3.69 to $3.85ish. Summer scares me.

How much is it near you?

I was against smoking, but then I realized if it wasn't for smoking, I couldn't laugh at Goits sadsack story!

Maybe cigarettes should cost less the older you are.  That way, we could even lower the smoking age.  A twelve-year-old could smoke as long as he was willing to pay $5,000 a pack.

I don't see how this could possibly backfire.

I also think cigarettes should come with a smallish forcefield that only contains the smoke (anything else would pass through it harmlessly) and would expand to contain the entire smoker, so no one but the smoker would get to enjoy the smoke of the cigarette. When the cigarette is finished, the forcefield would contract and pull all the residual smoke into the smoker's body.

All that money I spent on tabs, when I could have spent it on cocaine instead.  What a waste!!!!

A year ago I was smoking around 1 1/2 to 2 packs a day.  A few months ago I was down to maybe 2 1/2 packs a week, but I wasn't working very much.  Now that I'm working more, it's back up to 1/2 to 3/4 pack a day. 

I love smoking.  I do.  It irritates me that I could buy them for $3.50 less a pack when I was down south.  Sometimes my OTR trucker pals pick me up a carton for literally 40 dollars less than I pay here.  The last governor's great plan for raising the taxes on cigarettes and soda was to help pay for the state-funded health care plan. 

I only consider quitting for the money I'd save.  Then I think about all of you that buy Starbuck's coffee for 5 dollars a day, or spend 10 dollars on lunch at a slightly better than fast food place, or go out to dinner at Applebee's for an average of 15-20 a person, and I feel like my entire day of happiness is worth it.

I, too, think about Goiter going to Applebee's, and I just shake my head and heave a sad sigh.

He would only go to Applebee's if Church's was closed.

Thursty would go to Applebee's and order Chili's baby back ribs.  Not to mention the Colonel's secret recipe chicken.  He stopped short of ordering a Big Mac out of shame.

I smoke about half a pack a day. I don't smoke in my car, or at the office, or in my house. Luckily, here in Texas they haven't mandated a statewide smoking ban, so the area I hang out in lets the bars decide if they want to go nonsmoking. The BW's I hang out at isn't, so that's where most of my smoking takes place, along with most of my drinking.

Just imagine how healthy I'd be if I never went to the bar!! :)

Now that's a bar I'd be glad to give me patronage to me.

No, Buffalo Wild Wings. Bdubs for short.

Glad to hear you're not doing any eating there. They serve something, but I hesitate to call it food.

Or I'll have to be hard. Not that it'll help much. Unless you push back the fat. Even then, though...

Am I doing this "self-deprecation" thing right? (H) I'm trying to say I have a small penis (F) to endear myself to the board and let folks know I'm comfortable with my regrettable body. (O)

Just a brief aside back on topic, down to 3.39 this morning. It can't keep dropping, can it? Probably not, since I am down to a quarter tank. That means they'll raise it 25 cents tonight.
