just cost me $87 to fill up both the Aurora and Bonneville with 93 octane.. both were a little over half a tank.

P.*. I asked the gas attendent when they expected prices to go up (they're $3.29/gallon now) and she said they were going to go up, but she could not disclose when... That sucks!

Man, I clicked on the history thing on that gasbuddy site yesterday, and saw gas has doubled in three years (was about $1.50). Man, those were the days. Nothing like a 30% inflation rate

That'* not good! Thinking about moving closer to work? I'm moving right next to work in November, I just hope that once I do my company doesn't move somewhere further away again.

I agree though, I'd tell the boss and get some more dough!
