    Our local Costco (used to be Price Club) just installed gas pumps a few months ago and has been advertising inside the store that they sell gas for 5 cents less per gallon than anyone in town. Well they were wrong. I made sure to watch all of the signs in town yesterday while I was out and the lowest price I could find was 1.35 and I got gas at Costco for 1.26. I'm still upset with the moron Democrats who can't negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag for not being able to get the Arabs to produce more oil but that's another story and soon to change with a Repub. in charge. Anyways if you have a Costco with gas pumps and haven't checked out the prices you need to do so.

    I filled up in North Georgia last week for $120.9 and I was glad I didn't have a diesel. What a rip, eh? Diesel used to be cheaper than regular years ago. I had a few of those GM diesel cars, and loved changing out the motors!<G> One time I filtered a couple of barrels of used transmission oil and burned that as my sole source of fuel on a 1,200 mile trip. The trouble was the cost of filtering was too high compared to the cost of diesel back then. I digress...

    Funny Thing- this morning on the news they said how we will be enjoying lower prices at the pump because of surpuls supplies and while I was out went to fill the guzzler up and the price had went up 10 cents a gallon to 1.30gal.Figure this one out.

    It seems that all year whenever I needed a lot a fuel the price would hit it highs and afterward it would go down a few cents. I was out of sync all year. Now that I need very little it is down 30 cents from the summer.
