Tank 343 - 22 Feb 2K12- No reason to FREAK OUT; Gas cost about this much last year at this time, too!
This is notable just because it's the first tank of over 36 mpg since October last year.
Gas at the Fas mart was $3.659 on Friday. I say that because the national media if causing general mayhem and terror amongst the masses at how freakishly expensive gas is nowadays, and how we could be looking at $4.00/gallon gas before Memorial Day!
Flashback to last February 27, gas was $3.579/gallon. Yes, it was within 8 cents of what I just paid for gas. For a large SUV-sized tank of gas, this is less than two dollars per tank difference.
Last Memorial Day weekend, gas had actually gone back down to $3.499/gallon.
Truly nothing to really go nuts about.
But I guess people have to go nuts about something or another just to make ourselves feel like we're making a difference.
