I remember when it was $0.89/gallon when I started driving in 1993 or so.

Every day, those little 250 Honda Enduro bikes look better and better to me-I could bomb down the trails until I get to the downtown core, then jump a few blocks over to my job(s). Best commute ever.

And what's sad, I still only pay about $60/month for gas (My Civic goes about 3 weeks on a $40 fill-I don't have a long commute)

It's about 3.60 here in Eagle Pass, Tx. Luckily for me I cross the border for work quite a bit where I find gas at about 2.80. I just started using this stuff and we'll see how it works out.
