I filled up yesterday at Rt. 59 and North Ave. and paid $4.05 for the cheap stuff!!!! I'm going to central IL for the weekend and my MIL said gas there is $3.71 on average. I'm filling up here with enough to get me there and then I'll fill up there too. I was actually thinking of taking my gas can for the mower with me to fill up. How pathetic! I think it might be cheaper for me to buy three sheep and let them graze on my yard all day long instead of mowing myself

I think its a good article and puts things in perspective. Everyone is so quick to say something is "expensive". I think in more cases we should really be looking at the lives we live and say "i cant believe how cheap it is!"
