    Not if your working in the city. Rochester traffic doesn't move that fast.

    Damn! Makes me glad we're only paying $3.64...while we're at it, WTF is with having the 9/10 on there? Why do we still have that? Just call it $3.65 already!

    These gas prices are making me want to get a motorcycle, especially if I can't get a damn job locally!

    Just filled up the van this morning $129 for 34 gallons.... I'm sure soon we will start charging a "Fuel surcharge" like we did 2 years ago.

Sorry 60 MPH is the top speed here in ONTARIO , as for Interstates 90% of my travel is on the old fashion 2 lane roads with a few passing lanes here and there but at 55 MPH. Makes for a long day or night depending on when the call comes in.

    I thought this site did not allow price talk.
    If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........
