Not the Happy Homecoming
What happened today that gas decided to jump 22 cents a gallon? I left home today just after 10, and upon returning at 7:30 to my nice little street in my nice little town, I see that the Marathon station's price is now $3.45 a gallon. WTF happened here, people? Do you know what this does to Melinda's heart? It makes it stop beating. For today, and for the rest of my life while I'm in this town, I will be driving and usually eating about 1/3 of a tank a day...that means I'll fill up twice in a week...which means I'll be spending a lot of money on gas, and the gas subsidy I get from work won't my gas bill. Damn, did I pick the wrong job.
