$3.89

Today I paid $3.89/gallon for gas at my local Shell station today. Lowest I've seen in a while.

Question 1:
Is it wrong that I wanted to hump the leg of my gas station attendant out of sheer joy?

Question 2:
How sad is it that the "low" price of $3.89 for a gallon of gas gets me this amped?

When I was in high school, I could buy an entire tank of gas for my Buick station wagon with a $20 bill, and still have enough change leftover to hit Del Taco afterwards. So I guess that's the kind of thing I'll be telling my grandkids. "Well, back in my day, Sonny...."

Kevin Browning calls this "battered wife syndrome". The price of gas SHOULDN'T be more than $2, but because it's less than $4.50 - we're happy. It's kinda like, "He's not beating me today! I'm so happy!"

I like that you used lowest prices instead of cheap. I find too many people say "the gas is cheaper at this station"...I always correct them and say "no gas is less expensive".
