No wonder I have had trouble sleeping the last couple days!
It was Saturday when, thinking my lovely wife would need to drive the
car on Monday, I refueled a little earlier than I have been. I only
went 383 miles, and put in 10.456 gallons of gas, making for an
unimpressive fuel economy of 36.63 mpg.
I did notice something that did impress me, and that is that this year I
refueled on December 3rd and December 11th. Last year I also refueled
on December 3rd and December 11th. In 2008, I only refueled on December
11th. So for the last three years, I have spent time at a gas station
each December 11th!
Given the work schedule for the rest of the year, it looks like I'll
refuel one more time in 2K10, for a total of 44 tanks for the year, a
10% increase in the number of tanks over last year.
Looks like my total gas expense for the year will be somewhere in the
neighborhood of $1,330, or about $3.64 per day!
