$3.19 for 93

Gas Prices suck. but I think it's funny when people who pay $8.00 for a cup of coffee from Star Bucks and then oh yeah! about the gas price :lol:

Now that's just sad... Big Oil has got us thinking that 2.59 is cheap.

In Columbia - a self-sustaining oil country - they pay $0.16 per gallon.

Venezuela? $0.70

Of course the average income is rediculously low... IIRC Columbia was ~5k a year.

This is a great illustration of supply and demand. They can afford to sell their fuel cheaply in-country, because they make so much for it by exporting their surplus. It's a double-edged sword for domestic oil producers.

True

However

Starbucks NEVER lowers thier prices, then raises thier prices, then lowers thier prices. :excl:

And

The price is always the same from store to store ;)

So Starbucks doesn't jack the prices in 'high-rent' areas like McDonalds does?

I know the airport locations of most chains are usually higher - but I've never been in a Starbucks... EVER!

Thanks! I'm a big fan of the Olive Green T5R wagons too... The rarest of the rare in the US, no?

My wife gave me a gift last night... No you dirty boys, not THAT kind of gift...

She's been driving the 745 and we met for dinner - I got there first. My 'gift' was seeing my car drive up. Great stance, the wheels tuck in nicely, and it sounded good.

Not bragging, I didn't build it - just rescued it, fixed it, and cleaned it up. :D

Yes, but the reason gas prices in some other countries are so high is because they are taxed so much. $5-6 a gallon in Europe is over 60% tax, and sometimes even higher.

Since you are turbo'ed...all I can say is keep a very close eye on the motor and listen to it. It only takes that one time that you decided to do that one quick spirited run to make a piston look like hiroshima. I hate to say this in midst of how gas prices are...but regardless, you got to pay to play. :(
