When I first got my car, the CeltMobile II, back in February of 2004, I couldn't put $20.00 of gas in the tank. I would let it get down way below empty, I wouldn't try to find the cheapest gas in the neighborhood, it was a thrill...never being able to get to $20.00 while filling up my tank.
Two days ago I filled up my tank. Now, I'll grant you, I was "fill up now or walk home" empty, and I was at work, so I had to buy the fancy, expensive gas that's in the neighborhood by the library....but still. It cost me $48.83 to fill up my tank.
