Very appropriate, considering how the little guy is getting hosed by the fat cats on gas prices. They should be about $2 / gal right now with oil at 41 / barrel. Instead gas prices are going up.

We should boycott gas stations.

I try, a couple of times a week. In case anybody wonders, Schwalbe Supremes last almost as long as my motorcycle tires. And are a little bit cheaper. Not much.

91 ron unleaded per litre here was $1.08.9 this morning. This arvo it's $1.40.9.
The price of crude must've sky rocketed...or not. :x Slow to drop, quick to rise, regular cyclic shafting of the motoring consumer.

Yesterday I filled the truck (11.5 mpg!) and with a fortuitous Jenny discount of 30 cents per gallon paid only $2.939 per gallon for regular. First time under $3 for quite some time.

Usually the Jenny discounts are only 10 or 20 cents, but it would appear that SF Jenny has a new Chevron card and is getting the 30 cents for the first 60 days.

So if you're at a Chevron that offers Safeway Club Card discounts, use 415-867-5309 for the next little while.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.
