$1.64 A Gallon

We hopped on over to Omaha last night for dinner at Nicola's, a quaint, romantic italian restaurant. After a wonderful dinner and sipping wine with Mr. McRib, my biking peep Don and his wife Donna, I noticed the local gas prices across the street. I can now fill my tank for $30 and get a french vanilla cappuccino to warm my body in this frigid weather vs. $75 and no cappuccino. Life is getting better! ahaha


If you run 100 miles a week, you can eat anything you want -- Why? Because
(a) you'll burn all the calories you consume,
(b) you deserve it, and
(c) you'll be injured soon and back on a restricted diet anyway.

Here in west Tennessee it is running at about $1.75. However I did see a station on the way back from a football game Friday night that had it at $1.55.

I think I'll look for a Hummer Monday:)

I thought we were cheap at $1.87! I'll take it anyway. I hear ya on the luscious caffeinated beverage splurge with the gas "savings".
