Hit The Mark

Have you noticed how hard it is to hit the exact amount when pumping gas anymore? Seriously, I used to be able to put exactly $20 of gas in the vehicle. Today...$20.02 or worse.

That little dial is spinning awful fast and I am going to have to sharpen my ninja gas pumping skills.

As a sidenote by Harley motorcycle got 55 mpg this last weekend. Sweet.

That's awesome. I'm about to buy a scooter. I think for about $2 grand, I can get a scooter that does 90 miles a gallon. And I've noticed that too. Every squeeze of the trigger you get like 3 cents of gas. It's almost impossible to stop on a nice even number (for all of us obsessive compulsive people out there). It's funny you blog about that, because I was just thinking it the other day. See you in about a month man.

Hey Jon, what do you think about this? http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1820685,00.html?cnn=yes
I've been waiting for your blog on this.

I agree with the other commenter (Withengton sp?) about the subject. There is way to much speculation as to what it "might" say to speak with such confidence.

I don't have that problem pumping gas. Here in NJ all stations are, by law, full-service. Regular folks are prohibited from pumping their own gas. The guy at the station programs the pump to the exact amount you want and it automatically kicks off when it reaches that amount. Our prices also average below the rest of the country most of the time, too. :-)

You haven't blogged in a while. I have been blogging politics. I've started audio blogs, called Gabcast. You should check them out. hskrzfan34.blogspot.com. I've only done a few, but they're really fun. Anyway, looking forward to hearing whatever new news you have. Peace.

BTW, gas is down to $2.06 here in Illinois. That's incredible.
