    A new average I'm working on. Last month $6.10 per hour worked or about 2 gallon per hour.

    Fuel ran us a little over $43,000 last year, it's all relative, what truly matters is your bottom line.

    I'm sure glad it's come down some, I found the pump $100 or so spending limits stopping the flow from the nozzle to the tank rather frustrating.
