I filled up tonight for $3.79 per gallon and only a block away the gas was $4.09 per gallon. I think that was the cheapest tank I will buy in a long long time. I need a hybrid badly! Or even a nice Honda!

The question is: how many gasoline you can buy for one hour of the work? Me? 2,5 liters for one hour work. Expensive? VERY, VERY.
Nice take to the theme.

Thanks everyone, I wish I had a super wide lens to make the gas pump look enormous and Marv just one tiny man in the presence of the big powerful gasoline pump!! I think that would make a better shot. Marv says "Hi" to everyone.

That's cheap ! Here it's about 2.3 dollars for a liter... Talk about an economy killer ! Oh, and good to see Marv ! I like the colours too...

I don't even look when I fill up now, it's too depressing....

I think cheap fuel has gone forever :-(

I spent close to $35 yesterday for 1/3 of a tank, with a mid-sized sedan. Our gas costs $1.42 a liter. But a bottle of water at the grocery checkout is over a dollar for 500 ml so that's even more expensive than gas.

Great composition. I really like the angle of the brick column and the dominance of the oval pump frame.

Coming from a country where oil is the main export i just have to say THAT'S REALLY CHEAP !

Here it's about $2,6 pr LITER (Diesel).We also pay appx double for all Oly equipment compared to the US street price.

Anyway i like the picture, i have about the same face when i fill up my car.

Funny how big an effect gas going from $1.19 a gallon to $3.90 a gallon can have. (political statements removed). Looks like the sun is shining everywhere but at the pump. I guess I gotta get off my largass and do some bike riding :-)

Thats a great shot looks like marv wants to clobber the gas pump.
