Saw a sign for Diesel at $3.45

The wife bought gas today for $2.92 in Greensboro but around here its over three dollars..

I don't want it to go back to three and a half per gallon...

I remember when I bought my Diesel truck fuel was over $5 a gallon...

Better get ready for that again, it's going to go up and go up fast.

I have to get gas sunday so I will find out then.

2.999 for Shell mid grade.
That's with the 10 cents off using my Kroger card.

I had to drive all the way to 20 then back by the house and then over to Hurst.
Somewhere around 40 miles, all city driving and when I left the house I was at 25.6 and when I got home I was at 25.3
Just about what the Cobalt would have done.

If I do the math I come up with 25.7 mpg

2.99 per gallon for regular here. I put plus in the Silverado the other day at 3.14 per gallon. Gonna have to go back down to regular for a while. Just too expensive. On the other hand, it's good job security as I work for a large oil service company

Ever meet anyone with a last name of West?
I know one of Ricks boys is out there doing something like that.

I find that the Terrain liks mid grade but will run fine on regular.

Nope, not yet. But I'll let you know if I do! I work with lots of different companies.

Looks like the dealer that I got the Terrain from is going to fill my tank up till I hit $1000.
Had a problem with them and they seem to be going out of the way to make it up to me.
So I should not have to buy gas for some time.

We only got the first tank of gas free from our dealer. Free gas sure would be nice as I paid $3.09/gal tonight.
