Crude













Fifty-eight dollars and twenty-five cents! The damage incurred by filling up yesterday represents music I won't purchase, Boulevard I won't consume and a new book I can't afford. I was so stunned that I drove off without replacing my sedan's gas cap. A good Samaritan notified me of my error a few blocks from the filling station. When I turned on to a side street, the cap slid off the trunk, rolled along a gutter and dropped into a sewer well. Too fat burly to squeeze inside the revolting chamber, I was forced to recruit an associate to retrieve the cap.

    Sewer diving.... priceless

    Expect to pay a few more dollars next time, HIB, the price is over $4.00 a gallon now.

    Not sure where you are shopping, Bgo, but I've never even seen the regular unleaded (as opposed to premium) hit $3.90. (Although, one could argue that $3.899 = $3.90.)
