Just heard on the news that some gas stations are being investigated for charging to little.  How about that the government regulates how low the prices can go.

I knew a guy in Canada years ago who delivered gas to the retailers.  He would fill up his matte black tanker in the morning and leave it sitting in the sun till late afternoon when he would make his deliveries.  Since he bought and sold on volume and gas expands a lot with heat, he and his black tanker did very well indeed >:( >:( >:(  The poor gas station owner with his underground cold tanks did very poorly but none of them seemed to catch on to the rip off.

The only real change I've noticed in y driving is speed.  I know my truck is just a giant brick and when I catch myself in traffic going 70-75 I'll back off and cruise in the slow lane.  (Can almost watch the gas gauge move left as the speedometer moves right :()

Me too Todd.  The Cat 3116 in my truck is touted for its lugging capability but anything over 2000 RPM's sure likes fuel.  I've found that I can run at 2300 without too much expense, and have to if I'm on an expressway.  It's slow but strong.  :)
