Heres a nice trick.

Never let the tank go below half full. When you hit the pumps you wont feel as bad.

I know but it was a busy week. Now I just walk.......not.

I'm just glad I'm blessed enough to be able to afford it.

Right after Katrina, I had a $93 fill-up. The real PIA is the pumps that are set to shut off at $50 no matter what. Then they have to reset the pump, swipe your card again, and complete the fill-up.

I was on empty the other day and went to $100.00. That is where the pump was set to shut off. It was full, but I usually try to top off. At $100.00 I didn't bother to top off. I think that I could have gotten about one more gallon in it though.
