GAS TANK Angst

Changing gas prices (MCT Direct 2005) It’s bad enough tanking up the car for our own carpools, but when you’ve got teenagers driving too, it starts to seem like you’re supporting the oil companies single-handedly. We’re finding the latest gas price increase particularly galling, since we paid $3.14 a gallon in Anaheim last week, and $3.59 at the corner gas station this morning. We should have checked the AAA Gas Finder web site first! You type in your zip code and voila, gas prices for every gas pump in the area. The Valero at the 24/680 interchange? $3.40. The Chevron on N. Main just a couple miles away? $3.60 a gallon. (Sorry, we couldn’t find anything anywhere near the prices in the photo above.) Not an East Bay-ite? No prob. The site has prices for 85,000 gas stations across the country. But we’d appreciate it if you Omaha, Nebraskans, didn’t gloat too much. Gas is only $3.12 a gallon there…
