As for the station owner, I would have been a dishonest prick too, for 33 cents a gallon. I think any sensible driver would take advantage of that opportunity. Tell your bosses to lower the price/gallon and maybe people wouldn't be so giddy about this sort of bargain.

You'd have to be a nun, not to take advantage of that opportunity. :lol:

I'd be pumping gas into empty jugs for future use

I'd swipe my parents' stock tank to fill up for future use. Craziness.

People complain about $3.10/gallon (or whatever it is where you are) for gas and then go buy a coffee from Starbucks for $6 and don't bat an eye. Or maybe you prefer bottled water instead. You know, that stuff that you can actually get for free?

Gas is still a bargain when you compare it to a lot of other things. I get mad every time I have to fill up too, it's human nature, but it's really one of the most logically priced things out there.

I don't buy starbucks or bottled water. Bottled water, in fact, is worse for you than tap water. But, I do drive 80 miles round trip to work 5 days a week. $3.23/gallon is painful.

I don't disagree with you. I hate buying gas. I'm just saying that it's not like it's overpriced more than anything else that people buy on a daily basis.

People who buy bottled water are throwing their money away.

Dentists and dental hygienists hate it because a lot of the minerals in tap water naturally strengthen your teeth and if you're drinking bottled water all the time you're not getting that.
