Second...when you buy something on eBay who sets the value of the product? You do...if you want it bad enough, you bid on it.


All those eBay shatbags...oh those evil gas stations.

Remember...you have a choice...you also could have been more prepared.

Supply and demand...

Price gouging is illegal but sarcasm and joking are not

I'm in smithtown but i work all the way out to nassau. Been doing foundation repairs down in bellmore massapequa lindenhurst, some eye opening destruction down there. Filled up today with diesel and it was glorious.

If you any of you New Yorkers have a bicycle, you could always ride.
