mpg

If you're gonna do installment credit to buy a rope to hang yourself you might as well splurge and get a fancy one.

Anyone thought of prepurchasing gas cards? There was a company i researched several years ago that you could buy gas at the current price, and at certain gas stations you would pay what gas was when you bought the card. This was when i even considered buying a barrel of gas.

I think i missed the boat though on the low. It was $2.30 something.

I know i haven't been able to take advantage of low gas prices at all. i rarely fill up

Can't we just buy oil futures?

I've been meaning to look into it, but just haven't made the time. Would have loved to purchase back in January, but I would think now is a good time too.

I spent forty-six cents per gallon more the last time that I filled up over the previous time.
