    I hear ya...

    I'm glad they're helping us, yes.

    But I've cut my costs this year alone by well over $1,200 (for the year, still it's a lot considering everything costs more...).
    Yet that PLUS the stimulus check don't fill my tanks, not even in the difference.
    I get TWICE the work per gallon done now than in earlier years.
    But it still costs me right at double.

    But for about 2-3 weeks I have to agree, it will help.
