Empty in a week? It is all your fault.

I should run that one 20-liter can through my gas tank and refill it, it's probably 6 months old.

Looks like US gas prices, which had been climbing for a couple of weeks, peaked just before the weekend:

Quote:
drivers are paying 27 cents less than they did at this same time last year and are on track to pay the lowest Labor Day gas prices since 2004. According to a AAA survey, 55 percent of Americans say they are more likely to take a road trip this year due to lower gas prices.

Hehe, and I started a discussion about a "fuel efficient" helicopter. Guess the low fuel prices has me feeling rich.

In June I drove 1,407 miles on 19 gallons of gas . . . so somebody must be using more than their fair share!
