There is no way i'm paying $45 to fill up my tank in my civic

I could use that money elsewhere instead of spending $45 and have all that gas sitting in my car. I'm going to start putting in $10-15..

Just push it everywhere. Then you won't have to fill it.

you can push my car. It used to cost me $40 to fill up the tank when diesel was $2.00 a gallon. Now it is over $100 to fill up all 23.5 gallons of the tank.

You've got it lucky

i knew the gas prices would skyrocket that's why i got rid of my gas guzzler...the thing is i'm broke so even $45 hits me pretty hard..if my fillup was $100 i'd probably burn my car..
