Gas Prices.JPG

We knew gas prices were low, but whew… I did a double take and had to circle back to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me.

Is regular is 89 cents or 69 9/10, is super 39 or 59, and is diesel 29 or 39? Did someone slide digits from outdated prices over or is this a new form of advertising? (“Oh sorry, the wind must have done that.”)

Road trip, anyone?
